Antimagic

AntiMagic Academy "The 35th Test Platoon" (Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai, 対魔導学園35試験小隊) is a light novel series written by YANAGIMI Touki (柳実冬貴)  and illustrated by Kippu (切符). Published by the Fujimi Fantasia Bunko, the series currently has fifteen volumes. It had two manga serializations and an anime adaptation by Silver Link.

Story Synopsis

In a world where people possessing magic are going extinct and armaments are at the peak, the seat that was taken from the sword by magic, is handed over to guns and the one cracking down on remaining magical threats is the "Inquisition". Kusanagi Takeru despite being unable to use guns, and fights with only a sword, is attending Inquisition's training institution known as the "AntiMagic Academy". The 35th Test Platoon aka "Small Fry Platoon" led by Takeru is a mishmash of underachievers. However, one day a handgun-using super elite qualified to join Dullahan, Ootori Ouka has been enlisted in their platoon. Takeru who is the captain, goes with Ouka and the others on a mission to recover a Magical Heritage, however——. The revived "Hero" is walking on earth, will he be sent back by the girl's gun? Or maybe by the boy's sword?! A school action fantasy awaits!

    Please translate the next volume. I'm begging you. You and anti-magic are what got me into light novels, and now that you're up again, I really can't wait for the next volume. I speak, but cannot read, Japanese, so I may be able to help on that account. Otherwise, I am an expert english speaker, and on that note, if you need any help, just email me at the email I left below. I really hope to see this amazing work be finished soon!

    Thank you again, sir

      It was august of 2015, last year, when I started reading LNs. My brother died in a motorcycle accident, and to comfort myself, I read. I read all day and all night. I finished the entire 12 volumes that had been published then in less than 36 hours. Now, the only thing I can give is respect, and I think respect you very well deserve. If you would acknowledge my respect, I will happily do anything I can for you.

      Thank you, sir.

        1. Hamearis Lucina

          My guess it's they changed the order since Ikaruga's arc it's a little darker than Usagi's so it matches better with Takeru's arc, yeah i think they are kind of rushing but there again my guess it's they might be taking it slowly in Takeru's arc.

      This is just my own thinking of it, but I doubt next one will be the last, even if they manage to take down Sougetsu, or whatever they plan on doing considering they can't kill him, they still have Mother Goose/Gungnir to deal with and the first Suginami that was experimenting on Kiseki.
      Maybe I just simply don't want this to end so that can affect my thinking of it haha.

    Hello! I just wanna say thank you for this translation! This is the first ever LN that I read and I'm enjoying it so far. I've recently gotten into watching anime per season and Anti-Magic is definitely one of my faves this season! I've really, really like it from episode 1 but some things were not clear enough so I decided to read the LN. So much has been left out in the anime :/ Anyway, thanks for the hard work!

      Reply
    1. Iron Maw

      It's pretty decent so far and frankly vol 5 is only real good stopping point hence the rushing. Any other book before that one simply leave anime only viewers with the impression of mediocre show school harem show, and they only have 12 episodes to work with. So I think the pace that SL going at is right even if not ideal because vol 5 onwards where this series truly starts displaying it's potential.

      1. tsukihi

        not sure about that
        i dont think that adapting a whole volume of a ln of the size of antimagic in 2 episodes can ever be consider decent

        Reply
        1. Iron Maw

          What are you talking about? AMA isn't longer than your average LN. The adaptation itself has been pretty decent and covered half of vol 2 well in just one episode. The show way worse with rushing then it is with it's circumstances, but it isn't unless you a huge purist.

          Reply
          1. tsukihi

            no that long? well perhaps but that doesnt mean 2 episodes its nearly enough look at tooaru the first vol adaptation took like 6 episodes
            same whit hataraku maousama
            and they also didnt seem that long when i read them
            but a good adaptation must give the feeling that the ln gave as well and you cant do that if you take away that many details
            it also feels rushed and unatural like when ouka told kusanagi about her past in the anime( its not exatly even explained her past) it doesnt fell smooth
            any adaptation that put in 2 episodes a whole volume cant be called decent for it changes the flow to much making it feel forced

          2. Iron Maw

            I'm not getting you point here. Those shows you mentioned had like every other anime varied based on pacing and how the staff wanted to accomplish. Arcs and episodes are done in the 2 or 3 or stretched to entire season based based on episode format and scheduling, not because having 2 or 6 episodes is the only way to adapt something.

          3. tsukihi

            what the guy from below said also im not sure if i can make myself any clearer ?
            if the adaptation changes the feeling of the ln, makes it feel forced, takes away entire scenes , ( like the scene where you see ouka enjoy anpan) cuts pretty much the ln in half by skiping all of the details than its not in any way a good adaptation
            and there doesnt exist a ln , regardless of how "short" the size might be considered that can enter in 2 episodes that are arround 45min long in total
            and even if you take the smallest there can be like katanagatari wich was posted on magazines rather than book format each episodes was about 50 to an hour long and they still skip a couple of things
            there isnt an adaptation that can not skip things that its just not possible after all but what they are doing whit antimagic its just nowhere near decent

      2. zenkichi

        The thing is.... the AMA anime is only 1 cour, and the staff plans to adapt 9 volumes. This will result in a lot of details omitted just like what have you seen in the first 2 episode. Because of this, the impression the secondaries will have on AMA is "SHALLOW CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT".
        2 episodes for 1 volume of a light novel adaption is nowhere near decent.

        The only problem I really have about the adaption is why the fuck did the staff decided to adapt 9 volumes in 1 cour.

        1. Dailang

          The quality is way below what I expect, both this and Rakudai Kishi no Eiyuutan (No idea why they translate only the "Eiyuutan" to become Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry).

          For Taimadou, it rush so much that seem like no detail from the novel is there. No other comment needed.

          And Rakudai Kishi turn into a harem show. I mean, who care about the girl, you can give them the whole episode of flashback and back story if you want, but leave Ikki scene alone. Less fanservice, more action. The action scene is great though, but with 12 episode for 6 Volume, I guess I can't ask for much.

          The only thing I want to watch this season is One-Punch Man.

        I know that too, and I know that licensing is a good thing for the author and all that. My annoyance towards licensing comes from the fact that I live in an area where licensed translations are not available in the local market. Sure you can say I and the readers from my country can order online, but most people like me, cannot afford to do so. Its not that I am not happy for the authors gaining success, im just sad that these licensed novels will be unavailable to me and a lot of people for the forseeable future.

          Reading about your issues and checking out your name, it looks like you're from my Philippines. The major issue here is purchasing goods online. Applying for credit card is really hard, you need a stable job and earning higher than the average(here). Maybe 10% of the total population have credit cards. I'm one of those few people got a credit card(but I discontinued it once I found a good alternative). But fear not, there are ways to acquire these without using credit cards:

          1. Order from local bookstores. I only tried the service of Fullybooked and was able to pre-order few books that are about to be released in US, they are Fire & Ash(4th book of Benny Imura series) and Ex-Purgatory(4th book of Ex-Heroes series). I received the books 2 weeks after its release in US and I think it is fine. I also asked them English-translated LNs like Accel World and Danmachi, they said I can order those books. Though I didn't order them because I lost interest on those stories because of how slow Yenpress in releasing. It will take few more years before they would be able to catch up to the latest fan-translated chapters.

          2. Pre-paid Cards. This is similar to debit cards but was recognized online as credit cards. I only tried RCBC's pre-paid card because it is a lot cheaper than the other options, plus I do have a savings account with them so online transactions becomes a lot more cheaper. I also have BPI's but never used it since I acquired it last year because every transaction costs quite a bit. I have 2 co-workers that are using Metrobank's pre-paid cards and they are satisfied with the service.
          2.1. If you're going to purchase goods online and shipping costs a lot or they don't ship to our country, you may use Johnny Air Cargo's service. Try to check this blog on how to use their service(http://kikay.exchange.ph/2011/04/04/beginners-guide-to-johnny-air-cargo-services). Or try to visit their outlets for more details.

            Paypal, you can send money to Paypal via normal bank transfer even without credit cards. Heck, where I live you can send money to Paypal from a damn post office.

          2. Kyon7

            We in Russia don't have problems with credit cards at all. And I already bought several LNs from Yen Press/Yen On in ebook form (they sell them only to N.America officially thought).

          3. eSPiYa

            Normal savings account here can't be use for transferring money to your Paypal account, and only few banks allow to receive money from Paypal. Opening and maintaining a savings account here costs a lot. It becomes free if it is a payroll account. We're in a backward country. Really unfortunate. Good thing there are alternatives that are opening up.

            hi there
            i wanted to ask but what you say my aply to where you live but what do i do when i live in arequipa peru , where i searched every book store and not one even new that yen press exist , im a minor so that means i cant buy online copy whit out the help of my parents who think anything that has "pictures on it" its not a book and pretty much hate anything that isnt patriotic? but even so i still ask some relatives in lima(capital) to buy the early editoin of sao , yet what i got was a horrible ... im not even sure what to call it , the illustrations where changed, it was localized to american refrences? the order of names changed , the overall feeling and flow , and of course the enjoyment where no where as good as the fan tran . and it cost me a lot like in the end between 25 to 30$ (buy the way its not just sao but they also arent doing a good enough job whit NGNL?
            im not saying that you shouldn't buy licensed works but that they dont really give the quality that they should
            so before taking them down they should give a minimun of quality and accessibility
            other wise they are just limiting the amount of people that can enjoy the culture even more witch prevenst the culture from spreading?
            and when a culture doesnt grow it either dies or becomes very localized , and wouldnt that just be sad?
            sorry if i sounded rude or whiny also i dont know if this comment its appropriate? if its not then please erase it im not trying to deny any opinion i just wanted to .... express myself i guess?

          It's not entirely about that. Like I said the publishers get 90% of their profit from physical versions, not from the web leechers who continue repeating like mantra that "they hate licensing because it's slow", despite the main reason being not wanting to buy it. It's the issue of ethics, while fan translations make sense when there's no license, it's only the right thing to take it down when its licensed.

          I mean I'm going to look through for awkward phrasing, make sure there are no mistranslations by checking everything makes a logical whole and erase all the furigana as well as move the explanations to glossary.

    Just watched the first episode of Antimagic... was anyone else disappointed, I feel like its going way to fast.

      definitely feels rushed. lots of exposition got cut and even reasons why kusanagi uses swords and the past between them is missing. are they really making 2 episodes / volume? I'd rather have 3/4 eps

      I've read somewhere in the Afterword (IDK what volume it is) that it'll adapt until Volume 9 and it's 24 episodes long and Silver link which is responsible for the adaptation of this LN has 2 more projects.

      I hope that they wouldn't skip the growth of each character

        btw, which volumes are you planning to retranslate? I'm going to start reading through everything once the particular ones are redone.

          At least first three. Maybe four. The ones from 5 to 9 will get a thorough edit.

          Of course, the work on that will be spread over a long time, but I plan to see through it.

    Krytyk, thank you for doing a far better job with these novels than I ever did with the manga. It's inspiring to read.

      Well, I still do want to go over the early chapters because I'm not satisfied with quality. But now I don't have that much time.

        Untill when will these translations be finished? How much has this progressed at the moment? :)

      I didn't know if krytyk was finished retranslating them so I held off on making dark background PDFs for those volumes, sorry.
