What They Say

The Review!
"Mahou Tsukai-tai!" a.k.a. "Magic User's Club" and "I want to become a Magic User" is one of my all time favorite anime. It is extremely beautifully animated, entertaining, cute, funny, and even a bit ecchi series about a group of high school students in the magic club. MTT features one of the best voice acting jobs I've seen. Despite the fact that the characters are all fairly weird, I can't help liking them all. There are a few computer animated sequences in the anime, which I think aren't all that great, but since the series was created quite a while back, I can accept them. Opening song is very poppy and catchy, ending song is wonderfully sung by the ever-so-popular Okui, Masami. BGM is of excellent orchestral quality although quantity lacks a bit, but then, it's only 6 episode series, so I guess it's not lacking at all. When I consider 13 TV series episodes together with the 6 OAV episodes, then perhaps, it is somewhat lacking.

MTT has magic, aliens, robots, love, cute stuffed animal, weird
characters, action, beach party, big bouncy breasts, aircraft
carriers, spaceships, and most importantly broom sticks. All the
character names are interesting, too. The first character of first
name and the first character of last name of each are the same.
Come on! You've got to like this series.

Right Stuf International got the rights for U.S. distribution of this
title quite a while ago, but I've yet to see a hint of their plans
with this wonderful title. To teach them a lesson, I suggest you just buy the real thing. It is a bargain! All six OAV episodes for just 12,000 yen.

Technically, unlike many other Japanese DVDs, they contain interesting menus and some extra stuff! I still can't believe it! It has interviews, production shots, karaoke versions of the OP song with timed-highlighting lyrics!, TV-CFs, and others!!! The cover arts are absolutely stunning as well with lots of vivid images. First pressing comes with illustration cards and other stuff. I believe I'm too excited to write more.
