An Amazing OAV!
Carl Cheng | Sunnyvale, CA USA | 02/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you look past the perversion as just FUN FUN FUN, then the series is for you! This is one of my favorite OAVs series (Oh! My Goddess being another)! This tells the story of a Magic Users Club at a high school. Now this club only has.. 5 people (including the president), not to mention that one of them rarely comes. In this day and age, there is an alien object that came from space which people call the 'bell.' The world couldn't destroy it at all and then they just let it be because they thought the bell was harmless. They had all these things come out to join society (which just look like big round balls). They appeared normal, I mean, they even stopped at crosswalks with the other pedestrians! Well, the Magic Users Club is headed by a big pervert who just wanted to look cool to the other underclassmen (who are all girls). He said that he was going to take out that bell and our naive main character, Sae, always believed him. So they all actually went to try to go after the bell but difficulties arrived. Anyway, I don't want to spoil anymore, just wanted to give you some background info. This is a really fun, great anime. It's simply magical and I think anyone would like it. The OAVs have 6 episodes in all with a TV series to continue it which Media Blasters will release after the OAV."
Underrated Anime
S. V. Lee | England | 01/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Magic User's Club (Maho Tsukai Tai) is one of those anime titles that hasn't really made a big name for itself. Which is a shame as the animation is top notch on the OVA episodes. (1-6 on DVDs 1, 2 and 3) This is thanks to the input of Ikuko Ito (Sailor Moon , R, S and SuperS) This is the work she made instead of staying to work on Sailor Moon Stars. The colours are bold and cheerful and the animation is smooth and fun.
The series itself comes in two parts; The OVA episodes and the TV episodes. The OVA is far better visually and by means of storyline, but both are funny and follow the exploits of humourous and loveable characters.
This is a series that should be more popular but isn't. Something I attribute to the 'more mature' content and the sub-standard english language version. Luckily the japanese dialogue version with english subtitles is selectable.
Anyone who enjoys the likeable aspects of Sailor Moon and the adult humour of Uncut episodes of Tenchi Muyo! will love this series. (and the subbed version features the voice talent of Masaya Onosaka who has played Jadeite in Sailor Moon and Vash The Stampede from Trigun)"
Very funny, but watch more than once.

"This series took me a while to get into. It's sort of confusing if you don't pay attention to every single episode.One day, a giant bell comes out of the sky and takes over the world. But people quickly learned that if they did nothing, the bell would leave them along. so now a few years later, everyone is used to it. Takakura, president of the magic users club (a deerly under-rated club which has to borrow space from the manga club) likes to impress the female members, and accidentally promises to destroy the bell himself.Usually eveyone just ignores Takakura's boasts, but this time Sae (a new female member) get's jazzed up and convinces them to go and tackle the bell, ewven though they can't even fly their brooms yet.Alot has to happen in the first episode, so the characters start out rather flat and simple. But as the show progresses they become much more 3-dimensional. The english dub is also fairly decent. Something rare these days. Lisa Ortez gives a fine performance as always, and Jammie McGoginal does a bang up job as Takakura (the perverted club president).As for the Dvd, it's very well put together and has some good features such as creditless openings and artwork. Also, from disk 2 through the end, each dvd has an outtake reel with the english dub actors. A rare and hilarious feature that more anime should have. They even have a "slates" reel which are the original japanese text scenes (they put text over some so you can understand what's going on, so they included the original scenes as a bonus).if you're looking for mindless entertainment, this is it. If you like perverted jokes, this is it. If you like a fun story, this is it. If you like serious stories with blood and guts, look someplace else."
Magic Users Club takes the cake!

"Magic Users Club gives off the feeling that its going to be a cheap anime, with some good laughs. Actually, the animation is great, and it's insanely funny. It's always a bit weird, but they manage to pull everything together to make it great. This is the best new anime out there and a MUST SEE! Everyone I know that has watched it LOVES it, and it's growing in popularity!"
