Gakusen Toshi Asterisk

In the previous century, an unprecedented disaster known as the Invertia drastically reformed the world. The powers of existing nations declined significantly, paving the way for a conglomerate called the Integrated Empire Foundation to assume control. But more importantly, the Invertia led to the emergence of a new species of humans who are born with phenomenal physical capabilities—the Genestella. Its elite are hand-picked across the globe to attend the top six schools, and they duel amongst themselves in entertainment battles called Festas. Ayato Amagiri is a scholarship transfer student at the prestigious Seidoukan Academy, which has recently been suffering from declining performances. Through a series of events, he accidentally sees the popular Witch of Resplendent Flames, Julis-Alexia von Riessfeld, half-dressed! Enraged, Julis challenges him to a duel for intruding on her privacy. After said duel is voided by the student council president, Ayato reveals that he has no interest in Festas. Instead, he has enrolled in the academy to investigate the whereabouts of his missing elder sister. But when a more devious plot unravels, Ayato sets out to achieve victory, while being surrounded by some of the most talented Genestella on the planet. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Review : [Spoiler Warning] I’m not mad. I have only myself to blame for this, really. I tend to be more selective with what I watch. Something will be recommended, I’ll hear about something popular, or it’s just on my mind a lot. I’ve never watched anything expecting it to be bad; usually I have no expectations at all, but often I at least think it’ll be something that’s enjoyable enough to pass the time and get a 5 or 6. The Asterisk War is my first exception. I didn’t watch this because I knew it’d be …

Review : Gakusen Toshi Asterisk is a series which starts off as one of the most uninspiring anime I’ve ever seen throughout its first few episodes, but past a certain point it starts improving quite rapidly. Granted that doesn’t really say very much given how mediocre the opening is, but despite the lackluster start it manages to make a quite impressive comeback and eventually become a pretty enjoyable anime. First things first though, episodes 1-4 of Asterisk didn’t exactly give me a very good first imp…

Review : It’s totally okay to watch a show with low expectations. Sometimes to balance a great anime, you gotta watch a bad one just to put you back in your place. It’s a requirement to have watched poorly done shows so you know where your tastes are and also broaden your horizons. The Asterisk War serves as one of those shows that will give you appreciation of shows like High School of The Dead and other shows that have poorly written stories and brick wall characters. This is a must watch if you need t…
