Finding new anime recommendations can be challenging; how are you ever going to properly fill the void that one special series left behind? Luckily for you, we’ve always got your back with the best series you could possibly find. If your most recent binge watch was The Irregular At Magic High School, you’re definitely in luck.
If you’ve been watching anime for a while now, you probably know that finding high schoolers with magical capabilities is not as hard as you’d think; at this point, it should be its own genre. With so many magic-themed anime series out there, and so many characters still attending high school, it’s no wonder this recommendation search won’t be that hard. Here are 13 series you should be watching, especially if you’re a fan of The Irregular At Magic High School.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight
Hagun Academy isn't a normal school. Here, the students are known as "Blazers;" specific people that have the ability to manipulate their souls into the form of weapons. Ikki Kurogane is an F-Ranked Blazer and the only failure among his classmates. Things are about to change, however, when he sees the A-Ranked Blazer, and princess, naked. Stella Vermillion challenges him to a duel and whoever wins will claim the other as a servant. If you liked the way magic was used in Irregular, or even seeing the tale of underdogs rising up, this anime is a perfect follow-up that includes a lot more humor!
Ayato Amagiri, a boy with supernatural abilities, has just transferred into one of the most elite schools that will teach her how to use his abilities. He'll need to learn how to defend herself against others like him in order to participate in festas where they'll battle against each other for entertainment. After accidentally seeing a female student naked and being challenged to a duel, things aren't going quite as he planned. But Ayato doesn't want to duel, and the reason he's come to this school is a complete mystery. With a hidden motive and an unusual protagonist, consider this anime your follow up to Irregular.
Sora and Shiro are siblings that have given up on the world. Becoming NEETS and finding the outside world incredibly boring, the two have decided to do nothing but play games. However, even that is slowly starting to lose its appeal. When a strange e-mail arrives, challenging them to a game of chess, the two are transported into another world where the God of Games, Tet, rules. Now the two have a new reason to play games; in order to take over this new world that revolves around games, they will win every round in order to take Tet's place. If the animation, music and art style wasn't enough to make you want to watch this show, the magic themes and underdog dynamic, that was also seen in Irregular, should!
