Maburaho

Show Summary

Maburahois a romantic comedy of magical proportions, about a high school magician who suddenly becomes the target of three beautiful girls. The main character is a somewhat depressed seventeen-year-old high school student, Kazuki Shikimori. He attends, rather reluctantly, the elite Aoi Academy, a school for training people in the intricacies of powerful magic. In this world, where the ability to use magic is paramount, each magician is limited in the number of times he or she can use magic spells, and performing more spells than the limit allows will cause the user to die and turn into dust. In this regard, unlike the average enrolled magician whose limit is typically in the thousands, Kazuki is considered an underachiever, since he can only wield magic a mere eight times during his entire life. Then one day, all of a sudden, a girl named Yuuna Miyama shows up in front of him and says "From now on, we're husband and wife!" While he is still shocked, Kuriko Kazetsubaki and Rin Kamishiro appear before him as well. It turns out that all three pretty girls from different fledgling clans have started pursuing him for his genes. Kazuki's family tree includes a lineage of the most skilled magicians known to history, making him the heir to an unmatched pedigree of latent genetic material for magical greatness. They need his genes to produce a child with the strongest magic in the world, to bring greatness back to their family names. After this news spreads around the school, he goes from the guy no girl would even look at for romantic interest, to now being chased by the three most beautiful girls in school, as well as a few others that wouldn't mind having his genes either. It turns out that this pedigree was the main reason for him being accepted into an elite magic school instead of shunned for his weak ability with magic. This makes him even more depressed. The three girls' appearances may well also spell doom for Kazuki, as he soon realizes that his magic count is decreasing ever steadily due to the fact that he can't resist using magic to help them. However, it also gives hints that his magic is stronger than expected, for he is able to perform spells most would not be able to accomplish. Yuna becomes Kazuki's primary love interest, just because of how much she seems to actually care for him. In addition to this, the two made a promise early in their childhood. Kuriko, the blonde, is a year older and she can be considered the most aggressive of the three girls. The third and most reluctant of the girls is Rin, a member of a samurai clan that only wants Kazuki's genes to restore its lost honor. Initially, she simply wants to kill him, so this adds an interesting dramatic twist to the show. Creator: Toshihiko Tsukiji

    I stumbled upon this show while looking for more interesting comedic/romance anime to add to my collection. I am happy with this show from beginning to end. Even though I really think the ending could have been better and that there should be a second season. Kazuki's idea of a nice world is when those he cares about are happy. That means even if he has to use his magic, even to the point of death. I find the show at it's best during each girl's process of returning Kazuki's ashes. More and more the girls show how they had grown to feel about Kazuki: but another obstacle had to be in the way. In the end, I love the show and the fact of it being funny and very heart-touching.moreless

    This is my third favorite anime ever made. Dispite the fact that the show aied in 03 and ended in 04. I still can't stop re-watching it. Its hilariously funny at some parts and others you would just like for the story line. OK in general its a fantastic show and i would recommend you watch it. Keep in mind this is rated tv-14 or what ever that rating is. Oh yeah I forgot to say the creator of this show is totaly insane. That is because he/she did not continue the show with a season two. If the creator is readin this please for the sake of Maburaho fans continue this show. GOOOOOOOO MABURAHO!!!!moreless
  • 8 uses of magic and a heart to big for his own good.

    9.0
    This is defiantly a bit on the backwards track. In this show the women(Yuna, Kuriko , and Rin) are chasing the lone guy (Kazuki). Each women has their own feelings for Kazuki which include; love, want, caring, and respect. Kazuki without even trying to helps each of these women become a better person and they in-turn find themselves falling for him. The world that has been created for these characters is extremely rich and the magic is breath taking. The magic count which tells the world how many times you can use magic helps to define your position in the world. Unfortunately it doesn't account for how powerful your magic is. Anyways this little love story is entertaining from beginning to end. It does get weird at times but it helps the story. So pick it up and enjoy!moreless
  • A story about a boy who does magic.

    9.0
    Maburaho is about a boy named Kazuki and is 17. He goes to a school where everyone uses magic. Most there have high magic counts, but he only has 8. When all your magic counts are up you turn to dust and die. However his life gets turned around when 3 of the hottest girls go after him. Yuna, Kuriko , and Rin are after his genes. He comes from a line of famous magicians. So ifhe were to have a child then that child would be a great magician. So his genes are on most of the girls mind although he himself isn't very popular with the girls. Yuna on the other hand truely cares for him. Will one of them get his genes or will he use all his magic counts and turns to dust. Have to watch it to find out. I highly recommend it.moreless
