The anime sequence’s story relies on the Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei mild novel sequence by writer Tsutomu Sato and illustrator Kana Ishida. But the story truly started as a free internet novel that was self-published from 2008 by 2011.

First revealed as a light-weight novel in 2011, the primary e-book sequence ended with Volume 32: Sacrifice/Graduation Arc on September 10, 2020.

The direct Mahouka sequel started releasing on October 10, 2020. Called Sequel – The Irregular at Magic High School Magian Company (Zoku Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei Magian Company) focuses on the protagonist Tatsuya Shiba and the others after they graduate from First High magic highschool.

Releasing on January 10, 2021 (there may be additionally a free prequel on-line), the Maidens of Cygnus relates the adventures of a brand new class and focuses on two ladies named Arisa and Matsurika and their connection to the Jumonji household.

North American Publisher Yen Press is dealing with the official English translation for the unique Mahouka mild novel sequence, which will likely be as much as Volume 19 as of May 17, 2022.

The Mahouka manga adaptation is exclusive in {that a} completely different manga artist adapts every story arc and is launched individually. Oftentimes, manga story arcs are being launched on the similar time frames.

Worse, the story arcs being tailored are utterly out of order in comparison with the principle timeline, which is a bit complicated since you possibly can’t learn them in consecutive order based mostly on the publishing date.

Concerning the Mahouka Season 3 anime, the Double Seven Arc by illustrator Tsuna Kiaumi was launched in three volumes from 2017 by 2019.

A manga adaptation of the Steeplechase Arc by Aonagi Nobu started in March 2019 and completed on November 27, 2020. Similarly, the Ancient City Insurrection Arc manga by Yuzuki N started in March 2019 and completed on January 27, 2022.

Higuchi Mei started releasing the Prologue of Disturbance Arc in Dengeki Daioh journal on January 27, 2023. On the identical date, Yuzuki N’ started releasing the Escape Arc in the identical journal. Oddly sufficient, the Isolation arc hasn’t been introduced but though it takes place between the opposite two story arcs.

Unfortunately, not one of the Mahouka manga story arcs have obtained an official English translation.

Mahouka mild novels in comparison with the anime

The timeline of the primary e-book sequence’s total story is split into 22 story arcs which can be clearly marked by the titles of the books. It’s straightforward to determine how the anime tailored the books since every episode’s title is called after an arc.

The anime’s first season tailored the six volumes of the Enrollment, Nine School Competition, and Yokohama Disturbance arcs with 26 episodes. Notably, the primary season skipped Volume 5: Summer Vacation Arc.

As is likely to be surmised by the title alone, Volume 5 was targeted on the summer season trip between college semesters.

The e-book confirmed how the brand new Student Council shaped in preparation for the brand new yr. It additionally launched varied characters and their magic earlier than they confirmed up within the Yokohama Disturbance Arc.

The e-book additionally lined how a sure character realized one among Tatsuya’s secrets and techniques.

Like all anime based mostly on mild novels, the script closely condensed the books by eradicating scenes, dialogue, and foreshadowing. The focus was placed on Tatsuya, whereas the books developed facet characters additional.

The one main change that was upsetting to mild novel readers was how the technical magic programs have been simplified.

Rather than being targeted on the engineering and physics of magic, the anime’s depiction was flashy and launched acrobatics, which was technically pointless based mostly on how magic labored on this fictional world.

On the optimistic facet, the simplified magic system within the anime made for extra attention-grabbing animations. Dumping the heavy exposition required for describing magic physics additionally allowed the plot to be faster-paced.

The anime’s second season tailored the Visitor arc books, which is mild novel Volumes 9 by 11.

That means the anime initially skipped Volume 8: Recollection Arc utterly. (As beforehand famous, it’s in all probability being tailored by the The Irregular at Magic High School: Reminiscence Arc TV particular.)

The majority of occasions happen three years up to now. The story tells how the characters got here to be the place they’re now and clarify why the United States Of North America (USNA) is presently keen on Tatsuya’s matter detonation magic.

To a sure extent, each Volume 5 and eight have been skippable since they’re targeted on characterization moderately than integral plot factors, however the omission nonetheless left mild novel followers feeling salty.

The childhood story exhibits the early improvement of Miyuki and Tatsuya’s relationship and why they behave as they do. The battle story additionally defined why the Yotsuba is named untouchable and developed the world’s lore additional.

Otherwise, the second season adopted the Visitor Arc’s main plot beats pretty intently, however as a consequence of episodic time constraints, many particulars have been omitted.

Chronologically, the 2017 Mahouka film truly takes place after the second season in a summertime story hole between mild novel volumes 11 and 12.

The film was an unique story that launched Angelina Kudou Shields as a part of the battle between the USNA and Japan.

Fans who wish to learn forward of the anime’s second season can soar straight to Mahouka Volume 12. (Or Mahouka Volume 8 if you wish to learn the flashback story).

To put the e-book sequence’s size into perspective, it might in all probability take about eight anime seasons to complete adapting the story. The pacing of the general e-book sequence would enable lots of the anime seasons to be single cours.

The actual query is how the Mahouka Season 3 anime will adapt the following story arcs. Arguably, Volume 12: Double Seven Arc and Volume 13: Steeplechase Arc are usually not skippable books because the story occasions culminate within the two-volume Ancient City Insurrection Arc.

But 4 books is an excessive amount of content material for a single cour and never sufficient for a double-cour anime season.

Volume  16: Yotsuba Succession Arc could be an important stopping level for the third season because it comprises a serious revelation about Tatsuya and Miyuki’s origins. The e-book additionally strikes ahead the connection between the brother and sister that anime followers have both been dreading or transport.

Volume  16: Yotsuba Succession Arc could be an important stopping level for the third season because it comprises a serious revelation about Tatsuya and Miyuki’s origins. The e-book additionally strikes ahead the connection between the brother and sister that anime followers have both been dreading or transport.

Therefore, The Irregular At Magic High School Season 3 will adapt Volume 12 by 16. Since the quantity of content material being tailored is barely shorter than the primary season, it’d make sense to have two cours with 24 episodes moderately than 26 episodes.

That’d imply The Irregular At Magic High School Season 4 will seemingly adapt simply the Master Clan Conference Arc (Volumes 17 by 19) with a single cour because it’s three books.

But that’s getting forward of ourselves. I’m positive followers are merely glad that The Irregular At Magic High School Season 3 was introduced on the ending of the Reminiscence Arc TV particular.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei Season 3 anime spoilers (plot abstract/synopsis)

Zhou’s actions trigger the Yotsuba to start a manhunt for Zhou, and Tatsuya is ordered to hitch. Zhou flees Yokohoma for Kyoto, the place an historical group of unique magic customers referred to as the traditionalists are centered.

Miyuki’s feelings are raging over her forbidden emotions as a result of she realizes that if she turns into the following head, she’ll be pressured to marry an unknown man… another person apart from Tatsuya.

At the identical time, if Miyuki turns into the pinnacle, her brother is free, so she’s already planning how she may formally marry out of obligation and even have kids but keep a scandalous romance on the facet. Miyuki’s coronary heart is in tatters since she’s terrified that Tatsuya will reject her in disgust if her actual emotions are revealed.

On New Year’s Eve 2096, all these conflicting emotions come to a head  when Maya tells Tatsuya, “Miyuki shouldn’t be your sister.”

Unfortunately, anime followers should wait till The Irregular At Magic High School Season 3 launch date to observe what occurs subsequent. Stay tuned!
