During a flashback, an interviewer inquires Kuzumi Taiga, a prospective student for Seinagi Private High School, on what he would do if he could use magic, during his entrance interview. He replies, "take over the world", with an outburst of laughter, from an attractive girl, following his answer.
After the entrance exam, the school rejects his application; although he recalls almost nothing after this event, he does recall the girl, and believes the cause of his school of choice rejecting his application involves her.
Wandering around outside of the school the next day, Kuzumi tries to enter, but an invisible barrier blocks him. A teacher, Mr. Hiiragi, confuses Kuzumi for a student of the school ditching class and pulls Kuzumi into the school through the barrier.
Seinagi Private High School is actually a magic school and Mr. Hiiragi has just accidentally pulled Kuzumi, a teenager with no magical skill, through the barrier into this school.

The ending is painful... but read it anyway

Let me begin by saying that the ending of Mx0 is weak, because it was axed due to lack of popularity. Disregarding the ending, this manga is a beacon of hope that shows how romance and action can work together in a shounen manga without neglecting one or the other.

The protagonist of Mx0 is not typical of the traditional harem. While most male protagonists of harem mangas are WEAK but lucky, the protagonist of Mx0 is STRONG but UNLucky. He gets himself into misunderstandings that serve as fodder for comedy, and uses his strong will and wits to save the day. So for anyone who is annoyed at the traditional harem manga, Mx0's atypical protagonist will without a doubt provide a refreshing change.

Going back to my initial point: Mx0 is the epitome of romance and action mixed together. Often, shounen mangas that attempt to mix romance into action tend to neglect one or the other as the plot progresses. I'm sure you can think of a manga where there is romance and action, but one is less significant compared to the other. On the other hand, Mx0 executes this mix perfectly. Almost every chapter and arc in Mx0 is dedicated to the relationship between Taiga (the protagonist) and one of the girls. The action takes place as a consequence of romantic situations, but it is definitely not insignificant. The action is interesting (i.e: Taiga's bloody training, school festivals) and actually drives the manga forward, all the while strengthening the romance.

A possible flaw of Mx0 is that the romance does not go anywhere: none of the relationships are fully developed. Well, the reason for that is again, the manga was axed. If you can overlook this fact, you will definitely enjoy Mx0. It's funny, has great action, good ecchi scenes... it's the whole package.

So yeah. The ending is painful (because the manga is SO DAMN GOOD), but read it anyway.

I can't help but put a review down as well. A lot of the previous entries never bothered to read the news about Mx0 and its ending. Many of the posters don't realize why Mx0 ended and never bothered to read the news pages. To quote gan17 "It's as if the author got a month's notice that the publisher was axing his work" the irony is that's what happened. The ending is bad and rushed because a time frame was given that the work had to end because SJ was dropping it. Please before you complain to everyone out there research the reasons behind the actions. Think before you jump. You don't buy a car or house without researching at all.

One of the true gems that got axed. Its such a shame that it ended without really resolving anything, but I guess it's probably better than some half-assed ending most manga have. It's really good and enjoyable (minus the ending part) but since the manga ended that way, the author can easily create a sequel, if given the chance.

Judging from how it ended, the author is seriously screaming for a sequel. Well, that goes my 2 cents

So for me I read it not because I found it was on Baka-Updates, therefore unlike you who's reading this I did not know that it was an axed ending. When I read the "beginning" of the ending I got so excited and happy I knew it was the last chapter but when I finished it I just assumed it was ongoing so I checked on MangaRock (what I was reading off) and it said it was Conplete. I knew that sometimes they accidently put the wrong status on so I wasn't completely believing it until I came onto BU....Now I'm just sitting in the shock of the fact that it just ENDED like THAT.....
I enjoyed it so much so the ending didn't destroy it all for me but still I'm left with a horrible craving for something more complete. It's really a shame that the author was forced to stop it, with just even one more volume it would've been more complete. I think they were abruptly told to end it as it felt very abrupt. A real shame....

I hardly read fanfic over manga but I might try looking for some and hope there's someone who felt what I felt and tried to write an ending for it. I'm even desperate enough to try write one myself!

everyone should keep in mind that mxo was cancelled so the mangaka didn't have much time to prolong the ending and make it good. overall i thought it was one of the best mangas out there, and the ending makes it easy to pick up for a season two.

really awesome series. concept (magic school thing) seems a bit overused ever since harry potter came out, but this has a new twist on it.

the only reason i gave it a 9 instead of 10 was cause the ending, if it could be called that, was really, really forced. i actually missed the little "the end" at the bottom, so i kept checking back to see if a new chapter was up, and when i finally checked this site, i found out. really a heart-breaker, i wish it would have continued.

this is one of the few mangas i've read that surprised a couple laugh out loud moments out of me. i loved the humor and the art and the stroy line. for some reason it seems like it was far far more popular with westerners than with the japanese. i wonder why? i think if it was licensed in sold in english they'ed find a different reception, and perhaps we would have been able to continue the sad, there was so much potental here.
wish they'd make a sequel or something.
you'll probably hate the end but the manga is still worth reading,

Another amazing read. But as you may or may not know, it got discontinued so the ending was rushed. But even so, it was still a great manga and I high recommend it. Sometimes I feel that the Japanese lack taste sometimes to let such an amazing manga go by. I highly doubt that this series will come back, but you can only hope you know?

All in all, it's one of the better mangas that I've read. Despite the ending, just go for it. You'll definitely won't look back!
