    I live in japan and watched the premiere.. There was even a livestream of the voice actors having an interview and having fun instead of the usual commercials.
    As for the story, it's completely original and separate from the novels.. I think it occurs on a long break(maybe summer) of their second year.. New character and new epic self created op magic by our one true god

    It's a continuation of the story. They probably shortened it into a movie.

    She is kinda like the prince guy(the one Tatsuya fought but stronger) except she from America. They(America) want to know who the person that exploded the ship from far away with the massive explosion (from the tournament terrorist saga) was since such magic never existed and is very powerful. Blonde girl is sent as a spy then some side plot took over and became the main plot.


    *From light novel, movie might be different (prob not)

    I think the main plot was actually to capture the escaped American forces and to seize the one who was causing waves of trouble in the USNA. They sent the blond girl as a spy as they have narrowed down the identity of the new strategic magician to the Shiba siblings, as she is closer to them in age, she can infiltrate as an exchange student and observe them in school. The blond girl is also the leader of the USNA forces, infiltrating in Japan made it easy for her to search for the escaped traitors. (from what I remember from the novel)

    They didn't know they went to Japan until after they sent her.

    She had a previous mission which was to capture the escapes but got re-assigned to the Shiba mission. The Shiba we're just a prime suspect. They only narrowed it down to their school. So they sent her as a student exchange since the government wouldn't let such powerful being in and let them be free.

    The escapees we're causing trouble in America then moved to Japan. She only made the connection after she saw the similarities between the two cases.

    The ones casing the big waves in the USNA didn't know they went to Japan at first. Shiba family head found out and contacted them.



    PS. I read this a long time ago, before Yen Press got the rights and NU stopped linking the translation. So around 2-3 years. I can't remember everything.

    Actually you might be right.


    Either way this movie is where the plot actually starts getting big. This takes place right after the anime

    The anime was just the prequel.

    It like 50-50, with half original and half in parasite spirit arc combined and introducing new chara.

    So I drove to San Diego and saw both showings. The second showing a few days later was lousy. It started about half an hour late and then there was a pause of 20 minutes half way through. When they started it back up there was a huge gap they had skipped over. You'd think they would play the movie a third time but no such luck. Instead they gave out passes to see another move.

    Anyways I've only seen season 1 and then this movie. I have not read any of the books. So when Lina was introduced in the movie everybody knew her. Except I had never seen her. How do I go about finding the missing books that fill in these details. In English since I don't read, write, or talk Japanese...

    They might still have them on the mahouka subreddit. I have a bunch of the volumes in PDF format so I could read it on the move. I'll message it to you.
