27. Mob Psycho 100
Young Mob is a very strong psychic who lives in a world with all kinds of spirits and magical powers.
But Mob wants to do something that has nothing to do with his powers.
He wants to get stronger so he can get the attention of the girl he likes. He is a good-hearted boy who has been given great powers and must learn how to use them well.
Even though only a small number of people have these powers, they have a lot in common with more traditional magic school anime.
Also, the story is great, and some of the characters are the best I’ve ever seen in this type of book.
If you like action anime and cool psychic powers, you should check it out.
26. Jujutsu Kaisen
Jujutsu Kaisen is a great action show that starts with the main character just being interested in the paranormal on a casual level. Then things start to get out of hand quickly.
He not only gets new powers, but he also meets a lot of people called “Sorcerers” who have powers that are not too different from his own.
Once the action starts, this show is a real show.
This anime’s powers are a lot of fun to watch, and Panda is in it, which makes it even better.
I like the Panda.
25. My Hero Academia
Since superpowers are pretty much magic, I have no problem putting this on the list.
The show My Hero Academia doesn’t need much of an introduction.
In a world where almost everyone has a superpower called a “quirk,” there are now high schools that help train their students to improve their powers and become superheroes.
Midoriya is one of the unlucky people who didn’t have a quirk from birth. But soon, he gets one from his new teacher, All-Might.
And Midoriya wants to become the best hero with his help and the help of the school.
If you haven’t seen this before, you have to try it.
24. Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!
Magical girls are well-known.
They have become so common in anime that they have their subgenre within the medium.
But have you ever thought about… boys who can do magic?
We’ll call this show Love to keep things simple.
But Love is a very fun and strange anime ride. It’s about a group of boys who are chosen to join the Earth Defense Club.
Who is in charge? A kangaroo.
The truth is that this show is just a good time. And the animation is really good.
The boys are very cute as well.
If you’re interested in any of those things, it’s a short and fun show to watch.
23. Demon King Daimao
This show brings back a lot of memories for me.
But I also think it has a lot of really cool ideas for its magical world. Compared to other “magical” anime, it is different.
The fact that our main character, Akuto, is the Demon King, is one of the most interesting things about the story.
He spends a lot of the story trying to figure out what this power means and how it affects him and the people around him.
And even though there are a lot of ecchi moments, it’s really interesting to watch Akuto fight against becoming the evil entity that everyone fears.
22. The Legend of the Legendary Heroes
Even though most of this show doesn’t take place in a magic school, Ryner is still a student of magic.
So, compared to some of the other entries on the list, it’s a bit of a cheat, but it’s still a great anime.
Most of the time he is shown in the academy when he is with his best friend Sion, who later became the king of Roland.
Early on in the show, he is sent on a quest to find a set of relics that will help Sion’s dream of world peace come true.
There are also a lot of twists and turns that will keep you interested.
21. Magic-Kyun! Renaissance
Magic-Kyun! Renaissance is not like any of the other things on this list.
Most people who go to magic schools learn how to fight in some way, but in Renaissance, they just learn how to make art.
Since art is like magic and can make all kinds of miracles happen, you can be sure that the pictures here are very pretty.
And instead of the usual male harem anime, this one is about girls!
I think this is a cute show that is at least interesting and different from other shows.
20. Magical Warfare
Magic users can co-exist in the world of Magical Warfare with ordinary people without their knowledge.
One example of a normal person is Takeshi Nanase, who saves a girl and turns him into a magician.

It’s a fresh start to a new life.
