The timeline of the first book series’ overall story is divided up into 22 story arcs that are clearly marked by the titles of the books.

To put the length of the series into perspective, it would probably take about 10 anime seasons to finish adapting the story. But I’m sure fans would just be happy if The Irregular At Magic High School Season 3 anime is announced at the ending of the second season.

The Mahouka manga adaptation is unique in that each story arc is released separately and there is a rotating set of illustrators. Often times different story arcs were being released at the same time frames, which is a bit confusing. Worse, the story arcs being adapted are completely out of order in relation khổng lồ the main timeline.

For example, the seven-volume Visitor Arc (light novels 9 through 11) was adapted into the manga format by illustrator Gin Amau from December năm ngoái through September 2019.

At the same time, manga illustrator Tsuna Kitaumi was adapting the Double Seven Arc (light novel 12) from October năm 2016 through summer 2019.

In June 2018, illustrator Yuzuki N Dash began adapting the President Election Arc… a story based on the final chapter of light novel Volume 5.

Confused yet? The anime adaptation is a bit more straight-forward but it still managed lớn mess up the timeline in various ways.

The first season adapted Volumes 1 through 7 by adapting the Enrollment, Nine School Competition, and Yokohama Disturbance arcs. However, the first season skipped Volume 5 completely.

Volume 5 was focused on the summer vacation between school semesters. Besides showing how the new Student Council formed in preparation for the new year, the book introduced various characters and their magic before they showed up in the Yokohama Disturbance Arc. The book also covered how a certain character learned one of Tatsuya’s secrets.

Besides skipping an entire book, the anime’s first season also condensed the story in various ways. Foreshadowing was cut along with many scenes. Characterization largely focused on Tatsuya whereas in the light novels other characters were developed further.

The light novels were infamous for being dense reading due lớn the technical magic systems that only a software engineer would love. The anime simplified the magic và physics greatly which satisfied casual anime audiences but upset light novel fans.

Still, it could be argued the anime improved on the light novels by introducing acrobatics in the entertaining action sequences. Technically, acrobatics is unnecessary based on the physics of magic discussed in the books, but it made for better animation.

The Mahouka movie was a lot more accessible khổng lồ casual audiences since it dumped the heavy exposition required by magic physics in order to focus on action and keeping the plot moving fast. The problem was that this story occurred in a time gap that took place between Volumes 11 và 12.

Yes, that’s right. The Mahouka movie takes place after The Irregular At Magic High School Season 2 in the timeline. Due to skipping over so many books, the film introduced characters who never appeared in the anime’s first season.

There were even flashbacks referencing events that took place between the first season và the movie.

Mahouka Season 2 will introduce even more problems for the narrative since the story takes place about two months after the kết thúc of the first season. That means Mahouka Season 2 is skipping Volume 8, the Recollection Arc.

To a certain extent, it could be argued that the book is skippable since the majority of events take place three years in the past. The story tells how the characters came khổng lồ be where they are now & explain why the United States Of North America (USNA) is currently so interested in Tatsuya’s matter detonation magic.

The good news is that the light novel series leaves plenty of room for The Irregular At Magic High School Season 3. Better yet, English-only light novel readers can read ahead of The Irregular At Magic High School Season 2 by jumping straight to lớn Volume 12.
