Synopsis of Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

At the dawn of the 21st century, magic, long considered folklore and fairy tales, has become a systematized technology and is taught as a technical skill. At the First Preparatory School, the institution for magicians, students are segregated into two groups based on their score on the entrance exam: Those who score high are assigned to the First Course, while the "weeds" are reserve students assigned to the Second Course.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei follows brothers Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, who enroll in the First Course. Upon taking the exam, the prodigious Miyuki is placed in the First Course, while Tatsuya is relegated to the Second Course. Although his practical test scores and "Weed" status show him to be inept at magic, he possesses extraordinary technical knowledge, physical combat capabilities, and unique magical techniques, making Tatsuya the irregular of a magical institute.
