6. Full-Time Magister
I liked this magic anime for two reasons. The first is the MC he is not stupid like other MC by how he dosent just go and show his magic. He is calm and has a proper goal in mind not some stupid thing like wealth.
He shows very deep emotions by how he plays everything off as if its for him although he is actually doing it for a deeper purpose the second reason is overall type of anime it is.
It has tints of romance and drama but dosent over emphazize those but instead puts it like a topping on a desert. It sticks to a good structure having the unreal feeling of anime and also a realistic touch makeing the anime a good one to watch
