Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora
Review: Sixteen year old Sora grew up along a small country side in Bie, Hokkaido. A town with 4 streets and a bit of magic. Well, the magic is mostly in Sora and her town is about to get a lot bigger. Having just been accepted to the Bureau of Magic’s internship program, Sora is about to see the great big world of Tokyo for the first time. As if the experience itself wasn’t overwhelming she quickly develops a rivalry with her fellow classmates and her new co-intern, a mysteriously cold young boy, already hates her. So much for meeting new friends. But life is about trial and error, you can’t run away from it.
The title translates to “Things That Are Important to a Mage ~Summer Skies” Better known as “Some day’s Dreamers 2” in North America. On the first look the animation quality might seem artistic and astonishing, but if you look closer it isn’t any good at all. All the backgrounds are actually real-life photos poorly edited by a photoshop filter to make it look a little more like animation, and the cars and people they actually animated by themselves are done rather poorly and often do not fit in with the background. It doesn’t live up to its manga in any sense. The story is a bit immature but may turn out complex with Sora’s love interest and many jealous competitors. It’s not a direct sequel and it is completely redesigned.
