Plot

Seiji Kishi revolves around a boy named Haruo Yoshikawa. He thinks he is a normal boy with three sisters, but it turns out his sisters are witches and have kept him from knowing about magic. One day a girl named Ayumi Mamiya shows up in his life and begins to live with him. It turns out she comes from a wealthy magical family, but has had a cursed placed upon her so that her powers would eventually fade away. The only person that can save her from the curse is apparently Haruo. So, she begins to try and awaken the mysterious power that sleeps within him.

Audio and Visuals

The characters are drawn well and the visuals are good. Nothing I can complain about, but there was also nothing really amazing either.

The real treat is the audio. The Japanese voiceovers are superb. All of the female characters have a greedy/evil side to them that is portrayed perfectly by the cast. Also, the ending theme song "Maji suki MAGIC" is quite cute and enjoyable. The audio is the only reason I gave the category a very good.

Story / Character Development

The characters are developed really well in the series. The comedy is the big key to this show. An interesting twist to this type of comedy is that all of the females have negative qualities, instead of just being cute innocent girls. It ranges from greed, power hungry, and what seems like incestuous desires, which all made the show even funnier.

There was a little bit of romance thrown in, which was well developed. It made sense where it was coming from, and fit in nicely with the story.

The only thing I hated about the story was the ending. I won't write any spoilers, but it just seemed rushed and made me a little disappointed. There was very little conclusion and made me think what was was the point of watching the series to begin with, other than the comedy of course.

Final Thoughts

The sound and story were good, but the ending really made this hard for me to like. It's only 13 episodes, so if you are looking for a show with lots of comedy, and don't mind the story much, than this is a good one to watch at least once.
