Genres: Comedy / Magic
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: Yumiko wants to become a modern day magician. But on her way to find the magic school, she was hunted by a mysterious man.

First impression score: 88 ~ Interesting

Recognized voice talents: Haruka Tomatsu (戸松遥) as Yumiko Christina Ichinose. She's been a quite fast rising star in voice acting community. Ever since her debute role as Corti from Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica, she has been Lala from ToLoveRu and Nagi from Kannagi. To me, her voice is always immediately recognizable due to the energetic playfulness. She has fastly become one of my favorite voice actress.

Ai Nonaka (野中藍) as Koyomi Morishita. Her voice sounds very familiar, but I couldn't pin it down where I've heard it recently. After a little search, I found out that she is the voice of Imoko from Sora Kake Girl, as well as Fuko from Clannad.

Personal comments: There is a OVA episode "00". Though it does help on understanding certain part of the episode one, overall, I feel more confused while equipped with the knowledge from episode "00". So you might want to hold off on watching episode "00" until later. The concept of modern magic seems to be no more than computer programming. In fact, the "magic program" code they showed in episode 1 is written in C++!! Are they trying to imply C++ is the "magical" programming language?!
