>>121906666 >six billion Isn't it the other way around though? They basically got a hold of a kid who is mega OP locked enough power away that they could control him in a pinch then trained him up a little. It's not like he's their protoge I mean, he'd teaching the government how to operate or invent half the time.
>>121907156 If you read the books or at least understood the anime he's by no means considered a shit tier mage by the people who actually know who he is.
That whole nonsense about he's slow at casting spells is not true because he actually can cast spell near instantly WITHOUT CAD assistance but doing that would reveal how OP he actually is. So the way he solves this problem is taking round about methods to cast simple magic but as a side effect it makes him have a below average spell construct time.
I never see the protag from Re:Monster mentioned in these threads, when he really should. Early on you think he's just average and down on his luck, and will have to get through his predicament using his wits. Then you learn that he has a super special unique superpower which sounds like the most broken thing in the universe. Then he uses it and it really is the most overpowered and broken thing in the universe. Then he keeps getting super-special unique/rare powerups nonstop, makes everyone around him worship him, and gets literal harems of girls bending to his dick.
It's the most blatant power fantasy I've seen in my life.
>>121906004 This dude's sister has gotta be the most annoying thing I've seen in anime, My god, her whole character is to fap over how awesome her brother is. How boring is that? Who wants that as their waifu?
>>121907821 >sociopathic egomaniac who dies a pathetic death crying and panting in a puddle after overextending his bounds Eh, he was definitely up there but wasn't nearly that bad. There are countless better examples.
>>121907782 Shitty character, does absolutely nothing, supposed to be a goddess in looks and so good at magic but Tatsuya does everything for her she would be shit at magic without Tatsuya doing her CADs.
>>121907410 because his family thinks of him as a complete heretic of a magician. theres something called superpowers in the setting where its essentially you can't actually use "magic" but you have some other system in place to do something retardedly well. Basically like being a idiot savant when it comes to wizardry. This is tatsuya, he explodes the shit out of things really really well, and he can fix things really really well. Those concepts in and of themselves arn't actually magic because of the processes involved and the way its done is something entirely differently, therefore within the strict mindedness of being born into an extremely high class family its rather unacceptable.
>>121907725 try reading zhan long why do these light novels always have some of the most interesting settings and worlds but the MOST mary sue'ish characters ever. Serioulsy Zhan Long's main character can do anything and every girl wants his dick. im basically only still reading it because I want to see more of the world the author has created, main character is boring as all fuck.
>>121911502 That's really stupid. How do these superpowers work? What makes them different from magic? Why are they so looked down on? None of this makes any sense, it's just an excuse to make it look like Tatsuya has any problems or obstacles when he could destroy the world in an instant if he wanted with just his brain.
>>121907725 >It's the most blatant power fantasy I've seen in my life Thats not arifureta. Besides, as a story about some fucker killed off from his own universe just to take over another world its pretty interesting, tho the author's juvenile use of rape is kind of annoying
>>121911637 mostly because magic in the mahoukaverse runs alot more like how espers in the raildexverse work and tats healing bullshit magic is more of classical actual magic. at this point its both the fact that hes not doing magic properly according to their universe and it affects their collective social standing because of it in addition to the fact he scares the ever living shit out of them because the day Tatsuya decides hes sick of this shit literally everybody is going to die, end of discussion. so they beat him down, remove his emotions as much as they can and pretty much do everything they can to keep the monster in its cage, and tats is pretty pissed but hes not currently in a position to nuke the entire world right now without consequences.
>>121911816 thats derived from the fact that its based on cultural mores and societal norms expected of the highest class of families in mahouka. its essentially a different form of societal discrimination more then anything really.
>>121906004 He's basically a walking supercomputer full of so much science that completely rethinks everyone else's traditional beliefs of magic. The only reason that he's seen as "weak" compared to others is that he needs to bend over backwards to do simple shit that he'd never actually need to do in the first place. Like, it's if you told him to draw a square, and while artists do it in 2 seconds, he takes 10. That's because he's actually re-creating the ceiling of the Sistene Chapel and then erasing a bunch of stuff to actually have a simple square.
However, the LNs eventually put him in situations where he can't win it all with power. It's kinda neat.
>>121911928 >implying if he actually had all his power and wasn't constantly sealed at half power by his sister, and in addition had that super gun, he probably could have nuked his way through everything. the literal only reason he had problems with lina was he ran both at half power the entire time and he basically was told if he used his super ability his ass was screwed.
>>121911628 This. Bug Lover Eco-Jesus have so much deus ex machina it's not even fun, she doesn't even need to do something for everybody in a 10 kilometers radius wants to save her for certain death and say "oh god, she's so special". Basically the definition of mary sue.
>>121912335 And it only works because of semantics, which isn't completely credible because all it takes for their world powered by real-life politics to plunge into hell is when all the mages go fuck you to politics.
>>121912178 >magic school >caste system (MC may or may not be part of multiple castes, depends on the setting and castes) >MC is ostracized/supposedly low tier at the beginning >MC is comparatively overpowered or super broken (if the magic system is based off of exclusive powers, like elements, then the MC will usually have all of them) If it gets three and you've probably got a Mahouka cash-in.
>>121912540 Which is really unusual. I mean hell, we have fucking ISIS and all those extremists who actually pose some semblance of threat without magic. But Mahouka's version of extremism feels like a worthless piece of shit in comparison.
>>121913135 All the powerful ones are of strong families that are active both publicly and otherwise with the government/military. Again, that's the whole reason why politics is a thing, since the powerful are already benefiting from the status quo and are too powerful to be challenged by those who were not believed important enough to be let in on the upper echelons.
Then there's Onii-Sama who completely defies everything about the entire power structure and theories about magic.
The fun part about Mahouka is that the ride never ends. When you think you unraveled the secret behind the MC's strength there always comes a next layer. In the beginning I thought he had some kind of index like power. The next thing you know he's also part of the most feared clan of magicians in Japan. But then he is a genuis technician who runs a major company. If that is not enough he is suddenly the member of a secret special ops team. That's a already a nice mix but at the end of the day the author knew that this is not enough and made Tatsuya a strategic-level magician. You see, a high-school student who's also a secret government agent would be a rather boring premise but the many things Tatsuya is makes it fun to read.
>>121913594 It's stupid how Tatsuya has to be above everyone at everything. Even when explaining things like ancient magic to Mikihiko who is an ancient magic prodigy, he's just too much everywhere every time. I find him very condescending personally.
Alright, the guy going through and saying that tatsuya is being held back by the experiment by his mother is completely wrong.
Here's how this shit works: In their universe, magic exists in three parts Destruction, transformation, and reassembly. All magic is derived from this basic concept of destructing something transforming it and reassembling it. Tatsuya, born into one of the strongest magic users in the country if not the world, could only "destroy" and "reassemble". This is why he is looked down as a failure of a mage, because while he can do these things RIDICULOUSLY WELL (destroying spells, destroying islands, healing himself from lethal wounds in milliseconds) he couldn't do any "real" magic. So his mother, who was born with the innate magic talent of being able to mess with peoples brain, desides to perform an experiment on him to grant him magic powers. He has the area of his brain that processes extreme emotions, like love and hate, transformed into an artificial magic calculating area, essentially a computer within his computer. This computer's sole function is to do the transformation aspect that was missing from his magic. It allows him to perform incredibly low level magic, but it does let him perform it. He amplifies his magic using his genius CAD skills.
Had his family not been embarassed by his existence and set him on the path of being his sister's bodyguard, he wouldn't be anywhere near as OP as he looks. He would probably be an even bigger name inventor, and would probably still be a strategic class mage, but while his exploits on the battlefield would be less, he could probably blow even bigger shit up and have weapons no one else could even come close to.
>>121912504 Not necessarily true. In one of the world of warcraft books, a shitty author added in an orc that was an extreme mary sue. He singlehandedly took down legions of demons by himself, at one point he held a strategic position for several hours against an army and when backup arrived they saw him standing among thousands of dead bodies.
He eventually died because an evil god was trying to come through a portal and destroy the world, so he beat his way through several more demons, jumped in and attacked the literal god, injuring him in the process and surprising him long enough for the portal to close on him.
>>121913949 One of the characters looked up as the portal was closing and saw the guy's body impaled on the god's sword, so he did end up dying. I agree with the guy above you though that he still kind of won since the god was distracted for long enough to not make it through the portal in time
>>121913488 >Code Geass ending, he gets killed by Suzaku. Except in that series it was part of his plan. In Mahouka, if that happened, it would have a different meaning (since Tatsuya is rather shitty).
>>121914055 Different anon, didn't read the LN. But I'm just saying, how would the length of writing be a good measurement of time. Like >I checked my computer to research all facts, then I had spies to analyze him everytime he's in or out of his house. While, I inputted cameras all of his favorite stores, buildings, shops. And calling in the Great God of Zeus to see him through my Scrying orb.
