Plot / Story
MxO is a Shounen, Supernatural, Action, Romantic, Comedy that tries to do so much, of what has already been done before, but it does it all fantastically well.

The story follows your not-so-typical delinquent student (Kuzumi Taiga) who didn’t get in “Seinagi Private High School” and he believes it’s the cause of a certain girl (Aika Hiiragi) during the interview. So he breaks into the school to meet her again but he’s surprised to discover that it is a magic school and after a hilarious twist of events he ends up transferring as a student of the school. Not so surprising for a shounen manga and this would have been your average Rom/Com if it wasn’t for the well implemented supernatural element. The story’s set up so well and in between the usual high school antics are a bunch of mini arcs, lasting a couple chapters, which focus on a particular story or event (exams, matches, training, etc).

Characters
The characters consist of the typical personalities found in your average school comedy but that isn’t entirely a bad thing because it is great to see them level up. Of course Kuzumi is the male protagonist that it all revolves around and he has the classic delinquent mentality; but seeing him go through hell and still come out on top is a great experience. What’s more is that he manages to surprise us with his intuitive thinking, whilst never forgetting to make a witty comment.

Drawing Style
The quality of the artwork is great, with this manga having decently drawn backgrounds/environments and the character designs are great and somewhat imaginative. However when things get very action oriented, the artwork gets pretty messy, making the situations hard to follow.

Overall / Enjoyment
Overall MxO is a hilarious and highly enjoyable Action Rom/Com with an incredibly diverse Supernatural side to it. The story is amazing because it is set out, in a way that the reader is taken on a ride and will never stop rooting for the main character (Kuzumi). Nonetheless this type of manga has been done already, yet if you don’t mind then you are sure to enjoy all the magical fun. This is definitely a manga worthy of an animated adaptation, so be sure to check it out.

Decent review by Sosseres on March 28th, 2008, 3:48pm Rating: 3

You state your opinions on this series well and give a basic outline of which people that would enjoy it.

A few grammatical errors draws the score down one point and then another point docked due to lack of content in the review.
