Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
Genre: Action, Romance, School Life, Fantasy, Shounen and Supernatural
Author(s): Hayashi Fumino, Satou Tsutomu
Serialized in: GFantasy (Square Enix)
Adapted from the Light Novel of the same title
"Magic" is a product of neither legends nor fairy tales. It has become a technology of reality for nearly a century. Various countries in the world are locked in a race in nurturing Magicians.
Shiba Tatsuya is an honor student without magic capability at First High School, a magic high school along with his sister who happens to be the top student among the freshmen. What will happen to him? How will he live his school life where he is one of the many reserves in the school looked down upon by the chosen magical students?
my rating 8.5/10.
self evalutaiton: I REALLY DISLIKE incestual settings but this one is different because it might appear to be incestual but its really not. AND even if it was ignoring those parts its a tank manga in shonen Genre.
Normally in shonen we have generic Heros, like say naruto(not saying he is bad hell no), who are headstrong with INCREADIBLE potential yet incapable intellegence but really down to earth and diligent, while their rivals are the strategist or sharp guy who is mostly a step ahead of the main yet the best friend.
In this manga the Main has untold potential + he is the sharp guy around and not just in studies but in combat strategies(Saske + shika).
Just a big handicap for him in a world of magic he lives he has no talent in magic.
ITS an increadible manga light novel is fun too.
Hope ppl will find it great.

BTW: i didnt find any active thread for the manga so i started it if it already existed i am sorry to open another one it must have slipped my cursory search.
13 chaps released so far and it seems to be monthly.
But the light novel is way ahead so if any one wants to discuss it will be great since i dun get much forum for light novel discussion.
from the 1st 6 chapters i read of the manga i can definitively say novel is better. tatsuya in manga and novel seemed 2 different chars. for starters.even thou manga art is way better than the novel illusts. i actually prefer the novel.
hmm i know Tatsuya in Novel seemed MORE formidable which is really scary in some sense, i mean in manga he can literal wipe any one. In Novel he seems stronger because we can really hear what he thinks and how he plans in details. But for those who doesnt wnt to read the novel the manga is not bad actually the manga is a lot better than most of the recent shonen being thrown at us out in the blue. Also it has potential, I think it will get better.
It is confirmed that Mahou-ka Koukou no Rettousei going to have an anime.
Good news, I already am wondering when they would do this. I see a great potential in this story.
I decided to read the first few chapters of the novel after the annoucnement and must say that this is really crude. Plot, characters, overall writing and the entire composition seem very lackluster and are comparable to fanfiction - no, not the good ones. Especially Tatsuya seems like a pure wish-fulfillment character. Gonna pass on this one, I just hope that people won't equal popularity with quality for this entry (a lot of light novels get this treatment, which I as a writer find very disappointing).
Chapter 3 is out
Just a chapter showing that Tatsuya is the best . I still find him too expressive sometimes though, Katsuto looks really older, this chapter reminded me how annoying Miyuki can be.

I wasn't expecting Ushiyama to look like that, he reminds me of Kokonoe. I wan't expecting Tatsurou to look like that either, he is handsome, good thing Miyuki brocon is handled much better now, she was so annoying in the first volumes.
