"It really feels like it could be the start of something big; through conversations with people and lessons during class, you get peeks at something that could expand into a remarkably big and well developed fantasy universe, and it seems we've only just dipped our toe into it." - Jay Is Games

"Weird barely begins to cover it. Magical Diary is an indie, Japanese style adventure (though not actually from Japan) that’s a little bit visual novel, a little bit RPG, and a whole heck of a lot of Harry Potter. Luckily, it’s also really good fun." - Rock Paper Shotgun

My line of thinking for this game:

I'll only play for a couple hours till I get the cards.
Oh, heck, might as well get these easy achievements.
These little dungeon exams are actually kind of cool...
My demon boyfriend just did what?? Nu-uh, not on my watch.
...
5 hours later, all achievements complete, I put on my robe and wizard hat. Don't ♥♥♥♥ with me ♥♥♥♥♥, I'm the mightiest sorceress of the lands.

This is a very decent game. 9/10
This is basically a game about getting yourself (girl) a boyfriend or girlfriend
Which also includes puzzle solving, dungeon exploring, role playing and taking lessons to level your magic level up
It took me 6 hours to finish only one part of the storyline and it's great
It uses the same VN engine for Long Live The Queen
Even though you might not like the look of characters in this game
You should really try this due to its excellent entertaining plot

Ok I'm not going to lie, if I saw this 2 months back I would think,
"Nope boring, don't like dating sims,"
Then I bought Dandelion Wishes Brought to You, and it opened my eyes to how funny and sweet these games are, their not just so silly girls fantasy, most of them have a really good story and good/funny charters that you can't help but fall in love with.
And this is another, I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did but I love it, I have laughed so much from this game it hurts and yes tears have fallen from my eyes.
The art style might not be the best but it's simple and that's nice.
I now love dating simes because most of the time they have a better story then some shooters or other games, and the best part is that their is more then one story, since there is different charters everyone will have thier favourites and their least favourite which is the best part. (My favourite is Damien, what can I say deamon boys capture my heart hahah :3 )
So if you want to have a laugh and not rage quit buy this game I will garentie that at least a part of this game will make you laugh, if it doesn't well done to you, because I'm in stiches. :3

At first glance I thought this game would be an ironic adventure just for laughs...

And then this game made me legitimately choose to willingly give up my soul.

10/10, also Ellen is pretty damn cute, recommended~

A charming, well-written dating sim. Obviously created by a smal team on a budget, but the characters an the storylines make up for it. Awesome depictions of female frienship and solidarity, which is rare in this genre. Highly Reccomended.

I love the replay value to this game. I'm on my third play through and am finding new things each time. It's very simple, enjoyable game, especially if you love dating sims. The "exams" are a fun twist, and I kind of wish there were more of them (you learn all kinds of spells but never get to use most of them).

My only real note is that there are parts that do feel a little too passive-- info dump parts, or places I have no control over my character or the storyline-- that are a little annoying in the next couple of play throughs and make you very happy for the fast forward button. I just wish the game was just a little more interactive, especially with the creation of your character (you can choose appearance, but no other characteristics). It would be great if there were sequels with the remaining school years, because the end feels a little sudden to me.

I'd definitely recommend this game, but I'd also recommend waiting to get it on sale. Even considering the replay value, it's a very short game.

A little bit RPG, a little bit school sim, and a dash of dating sim drawn together with an anime art style. Look out Hogwarts, the U.S.A. has its own school of magic. You take on the role of a female protagonist starting her first year in this visual novel style game. Basically, this is a Choose Your Own Adventure or Fantasy Fighting type of experience. I have a few of those game books and they are generally designed to defeat you. Magical Diary, on the other had, was more of a laid back experience and one I'm more likely to spin back up to try out the different branches that are offered. I had fun playing this and wouldn't mind seeing a sequel so that I can start my junior year.

So, there's a romance path where you basically get to romance Severus Snape.

If that weren't enough: gender sensitivity, gender neutral pronouns, LGBTQ relationships, lots of racial diversity (as much as any game with anime/cartoon sprites can have, anyway), and a genuinely cute story on most of the paths. Or a genuinely disturbing one, depending on your options.

If you liked Long Live the Queen, or games like it, you'll definitely enjoy this one. (And now to cut this review off so I can go back to exploring as many paths as possible!)

I liked parts of this game and disliked other parts.

Pros:
- Different & unique romance options! I loved that I could go for one of my female roommates. :)
- You get to customize your characters hair, eyes, and body type. This makes the protagonist feel more "yours."
- The characters get put in absolutely hilarious situations.
- Your choices in the plot certainly have a big impact and can lead you to many different routes, so replay value is deifnitely there.
- The "magical school" setting is unique compared to some other dating sims.

Cons:
- I felt like the personality traits were worthless. I saw no point in getting points in the "cute/weird/smart" categories because they don't seem to affect anything.
- The magical tests never seem to get interesting/complex.
- Art was subpar. The characters all look similar in the face and their appearance doesn't change a whole lot. It starts to feel monotonous.
- There are huuuuge chunks of dialogue/description with no pictures sometimes, which gets annoying. With such a cool, magical setting, I would expect to actually see some of the magic going on. Unfortunately, you never do. This is what makes this dating sim way less enjoyable than ones like Dandelion, which go above and beyond with scenery and drawing out pivotal scenes. The only time Magical Diary shows you a picture to go with a scene is if you kiss somebody, which for me, was only twice.

Overall: If you tend to like visual novels or dating sims, this one is worth a try, especially if you value the choice to either date men or women. However, don't expect this game to knock your socks off. It's entertaining, but somewhat underwhelming at times.

Really nice visual novel, story line is decent and sometimes genuinely surprising. The friendship elements are just as well written and important as the romance options and finishing the game without a date is actually a viable option.
I wasn't the biggest fan of the artwork at first, but it grows on you.
I've done all but one of the endings with my current play time, deffinitely worth the money I paid (I bought when it was on sale though).

I really liked this game. Its my first graphic novel type game at least from what I can remember and I have not played any others yet although I do want to in the future. What I am getting at here is that I really have nothing to compare this game to so my review may seem a bit to positive but oh well I think it deserves it. So this game is about a girl that was told that she was a witch and that she could, if she chose to, go to a magical school. She then goes to class meets people and lives her one year at the school in which the game ends with here dating someone or the other multiple endings.. or you might just screw up and get expelled before school finishes. The game did really well opening up the magical world to you without hammering you down with uneeded explanation at the start. You basically learn about the world as you go along. The relationships for the most part felt real and were not to overally romantic which allows you to get much more involved with the characters I find. The game had a lot of story lines and a lot of your choices effected how that storyline would go. I have replayed this game many times and still havn't uncovered every storyline part. I know this because I still have not unlocked all the achievements yet. So the game can easily be replayed many times. The game is also pretty short so that also makes it easier to replay.

Umm there not really any huge issues with the game, i guess after replaying the game a few times you will get a lot of scenes that you have seen before, especially at the start, but you can quickly skip over those if you want to. I remember reading some one elses review saying that the game was to short and that it was only one year of school. I dont know if this is an issue for me really because if the game was longer than I think the replay value would probably lower so good job developers with making the game short. Maybe the developers can make a second game. Thats always a possibility I guess.

This is a wonderful and well written visual novel type game that is actually affected by your day to day choices. The world has a deep plot with lots of lore, multipul playthroughs only have some content overlap with each other. This is my absolute favorite game of this genre; all of the characters are believable, decisions actually matter and frequently have consequences one way or the other, and the exams are fun! There are a large number of different ways to beat the exams which is very satisfying so you can focus on different types of magic.

Graphics can put some people off with their Anime-ish style but they add a certain spice to the world that I think adds to the magical nature of the world. They are not fantastic but they are by no means awful and there are quite a few options in terms of hair style and color and eye shape and color. Yearbook pages are always interesting to read and some of the more unusual, and funny, ones pop up on the community to be admired.

You get to learn magic and date your teachers, what could be more fun than that?

The only unfun thing about this game is that it ends after your freshman year, which really sucks considering there's so much lore and character development that could go on with such a story like this. Call me a sucker for anything pertaining to magic and its universe but I can't stand it when I don't get to enjoy every nook and cranny about the magical creatures that are in the universe shown to me.

This visual novel has an interesting and at times gripping storyline, has many interesting and relatable characters. But hardly has any time to develop on themas the campaign is so brutally short. Your first run through will last about 4 hours in real time. Which is far too little, regardless of the somewhat limited replayability. I would expect a minimum of 20+ hours and even then I might have een disappointed.

The game has multiple endings but after your first there's very little drive to go back and replay every ending unless you saved periodically after every somewhat major choice in the game. Otherwise you'll be forced to drudge through the first 30 minutes of gameplay you've completed already. That's not fun at all.

Another complaint would be that the game has no 'real ' endings. Every ending leaves you expecting something else to happen and you're left with little resolution. Which isn't a satisfying end for me. I would have een much happier if the game ran through the full 4 years, instead of the first year, which was mostly spent building relationships with characters and finding your click.

In conculsion, the game has an interesting and grippign storyline with many relatable, interesting characters. But falls flat because of the brutally short campaign, no sense of resolution in any ending and relatively high price point. If the game is on a 50% off or more sale I would recommend picking it up for a short but sweet story. Other than that, I see no reason to pick this game up for £10.99, when there are much longer and more gripping visual novels available.

The puzzles have alot of solutions making it fun to try and solve them trough diffrent types of magic. The story is okay and gives enough to play trough 2 or 3 of the 5 rommance paths depending on your intresst in trying diffrent spells.
