No spoilers since nothing ever happens or changes. I give this series, mostly Season 1, a 6/10 for a multitude of reasons, but essentially for just a few major ones that I'll list here: 1. The pacing was bad but had since improved (though really, it should've done that from the start); 2, The main duo, who you're stuck with for the entirety of the show are really not that special or unique other than looks, plot devices and gimmicks; 3, The Magiswords (which are the selling point of the show, mind you) are typically uneventful or exciting; and 4, Although the other characters (usually those from the Academy Shorts) show promise, they get shoved to the side in favor of the ones we're already used to seeing (with a few exceptions; Cattus and Simone for example). There are but a few genuinely good things to come out this, but because the show is so heavily flawed and nothing ever changes, it ultimately comes out as 50-episode filler. Season 2, however, is a lot more interesting than much of season 1 with it's own improvements, but unfortunately, I don't believe it is enough to recover from all of the past episodes we've already seen. If the show were to be rebooted, or perhaps given a continuation of some kind, I hope that the makers of it will consider the details to truly make it one of a kind ;). There is still potential in it, but at the rate it and it's fandom are going, I don't know if we'll ever get to see it or not.
