the story took place in a world where technology were so advanced that scientists were able to develop sophisticated magic. Makinot was the combination of science and magic, where circuits were made from spells and put into objects, bringing them to life and even gaining a personality. it was first developed as a military weapon, now available throughout the world. Raishin was attending Royal Academy, accompanied by Yaya, his puppet weapon. he planned to become the top in his class, however his test scores were bad.
despite the seemingly confusing backdrop, the revenge plot was rather generic. the characters were likable but also held a certain characteristic that could make them distasteful to look at. Yaya was the main focus as she supported Raishin along the way. her excessive loyalty was impressive to watch, especially it was put to the test. but at the same time, her constant attempt to get into Raishin's pants, tend to get very annoying very soon. the series was quite entertaining in general. there were unfortunately, plenty of unanswered questions, hopefully signaling another season in progress.
