Mahouka Koukou No Rettousei – Discussed!
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is an absolutely fantastic show, with a wonderfully original setting and well-executed character design. For some strange reason it has attracted a great deal of controversy when it comes to the aspects of the story and setting. So what are some of the more important areas that should be looked at?
If you remember your high school, you will realize that the main heroine was smart, had a lot of potential, and did everything the class hero did. That is in fact exactly what happens in the show. The ReTte ShiRi hails from the legendary world of the God of the Sun. Her real name is Ryoko Shienai, and she is the daughter of one of the most powerful Daimyo in the world. She gets so caught up in her royal duties that she never even gets to see her friends and family.
Her friends, Hiro and Ruri, are so busy trying to find out what the ReTte ShiRi does for a living that they do not have time to get involved in many different lives. They just live life as normal and care about others in their own little ways. This is where the controversy comes from.
The ReTte ShiRi does not want to let her friends go because they will never see her again, but she can’t stop wanting to know what she is doing. When the day comes that she gets to see them, it doesn’t go well. The ReTte shirt is so depressed that she decides to end her life, but then the lucky coincidence happens.
Somehow it is Hiro and Ruri who get caught up in the middle of the battle between Ryoko and the old daimyo’s son who try to take advantage of the situation, while the ReTte shirt is trying to get Hiro and Ruri to help get Ryoko to her death. This causes the old daimyo’s son to be kidnapped by the ReTte ShiRi.
It is a highly unusual plot device, but the show takes advantage of it quite well and while it may not be an original concept, it is done very well. The writers of the show understand that the ReTte ShiRi’s character is so very different from the others, and that she is more than willing to sacrifice herself for the other friends. It is what makes the show so special, and it has a wonderful ending that really makes this show stand out. This is something that needs to be discussed when discussing the real controversy of Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei.
In the end it is not that the show is immoral or unethical, but rather the opinion of a lot of people has been against the entire premise of the show, and the true reason for the controversy is probably much more than what is actually shown on the screen. The real controversy has more to do with how we as human beings view certain stories, and our reactions to such. A lot of people who haven’t watched the show were forced to react in a negative way to the characters, setting, and overall concept of the show.
If you are considering watching Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, I would highly recommend that you not do so, if you feel any negativity towards it. There are plenty of other shows that do justice to the concept that they are dealing with and offer it in a very unique manner. Just because read Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei might be more controversial than a lot of the other shows out there doesn’t mean that it is bad, or in any way unethical.
