"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

Went to prom alone, had my soul stolen, memory wiped, and cast out of school as a muggle. Even rule 63 Harry Potter universe me has trust issues now!

To be more serious, it's a VN that you might have to grit your teeth to get into at the start, but is competently written and characterized, with a bunch of narrative branches and an impressively robust magic skill system that is largely squandered with the few times you get to try it out. Surprisingly good, but feels like it could've been so much more.

this is what Harry Potter SHOULD have been. The world is very fleshed out and feels real. The "fish out of water" character feels real and controllable. The way the story plays out depending on your choices made this really interesting. Certain events will happen regardless of whether or not you were involved in them and really casts a different tone to the scenarios. The romances or character centric paths are all pretty great, though some better than others (Grabiner was my favorite while Virginia's made me absolutely hate her). The writing is well done and the magic system makes for some creative puzzles with multiple ways of accomplishing your goals.
My ONLY complaint is that there wasn't enough done with the magic. There were a lot of fascinating things to do but sometimes only 1 situation you could ever use them in. I wanted to see a little more considering the puzzles and spells had SO much potential.

That said, I love everything about this game.

I am a straight dude and I thought this game was fantastic. If you like visual novels, you'll definitely have a good time playing this.

PS: I have purchased this for atleast 6 people, so... again.. totally worth it.

I haven't found a whole lot of stat-raising visual novels, and was delighted with the way stat-checks are integrated in Magical Diary. For example, there is a character you cannot date unless your "weird" score is high enough, and whether you know certain spells will change a couple scenes.
The game felt a little preachy a couple times, and the "kiss" pictures actually detracted from overall quality, but these were forgivable flaws.
I bought this game from the publisher a couple years ago, and lost it when my computer died. I had enjoyed the game so much, however, that when I decided I wanted to replay it, I was willing to buy it again. Even though I'm generally pretty cheap, I don't regret that decision.

Fun and decently short. There's a few minor things I'd probably add, such as further character customization (being able to choose how studious/athletic your background really is, for one) and adding in some choices where you otherwise get railroaded (Personally, I'd rather be in the Drama club than a sports club).

I also found it rather amusing that the colours given for the schools of magic are the same colours as Magic: the Gathering, though the schools are not the same as the Magic colours. White/Blue/Black mage in either world!

My least favourite moment in the story was one that I backtracked on: I promised to go to the mall with Ellen, then arranged to go out with Damien later that day. Damien shows up immediately, causing Ellen to run off, and there was no option to go after Ellen, so I rewound time and turned Damien down. ♥♥♥♥.

I only picked this up on a recomendation of a few friends of mine and boy were they right. From what I've played of it, it does give you a nice bit of agency to persue things how you want to, and some of the end results were not expected (in a good way). Give it a play!

Would really like to date Luke and Logan.. Maybe throw in more pursuable characters?

Great game, great music that is fitting, love the concept. Mostly stat raising so would have liked a longer storyline since some routes felt rushed. That's the only thing that bothered me. Get it on sale though because I think 15$ is too much for such a short storyline - 1 freshman year, of which consisted mostly of stat raising :(

I have to say I LOVED this game! It has qualities of a dating sim that I love but with a magical overtone think Harry Potter that meets modern day. I just finished the Grabiner route (which was not what I had intended) but still I actually really liked that route. I do hope that the creators make a sophmore year!!!

OH DIS GAME DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is a great visual novel and I love the artwork. Very Kawaii. But, in all seriousness, you will fall in love with the characters and just the overall feelling to the game gives it a cheary overlook. This is one of my favs. The decisions will twist your arm! From choosing where to go or who to date! The only problems is there aren't a lot of endings and dating choices and I don't like the uncomfortable situations the game will put you in. Still the twists and turns are amazing!
OMGEEE DAIMEN WHY DID YOU TRY TO TAKE MEH SOUL?!?!?!?! I LOVED YOU!!!! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!!?
Don't read above if you don't want the entire game spoiled!!!! JUST DON'T! Overall, very good game. Would recomend!

At first I was skeptical but then I grew to adore this game. But there was immense potential that could be touched upon, specially in Grabiner's ending (which I will admit I played 4 times).

But the story is lovely and really diverse in the love interests and very open about genders which was awesome! Magical Diary 2 please!!

This is a nice VN, with some stats raising elements. There are tons of possibilites (of routes and endings), and it was rather fun to go after all the achievements! I also liked the fact that you can make your own character.

9/10. The art style isn’t a “professional” one, but it does has a certain charm. BGM was quite good, the songs fit in nicely during the events. The characters were all likable too. I hope there’s a sequel for this game one day!

When i first played this game, i didnt like it too much. I guess i expected something different and i wasnt happy with what i got. But that was then, and some time later i tried this game again and i loved it.
Damien and Donald had really satisfying, good routes, that made me very emotional. Seriously, i recommend this game just for them. The other routes are also well done and i enjoyed all of them, although they didnt left such an impression as Donalds and Damiens routes did.
The art is not very good at the first glance, but its actually not bad but just... different? After you get used to it, you start to appreciate it, i think. Although the size of the eyes still bugged me sometimes, but thats something you can easily forget about while playing the game - its written in a way that makes it rather easy to focus your attention on the plot.
Its kind of sad there were almost no cgs, but i guess thats the price for being able to customize your character in a couple of ways.
Oh, and if youre not too much into this whole stat raising thing, there are cheats that you can use to swiftly progress through it by maxing all your stats instantly. Makes life much easier when youre replaying the game many times to get all the endings.
I definitely recommend this game, especially if you like cute GxG romances, as this game has two such routes.

Primera VN en la que no me tengo que saltar escenas para evitar quedarme dormido. Ágil, variada y entretenida de principio a fin. Aprendes hechizos y luego tienes que usarlos para aprobar exámenes en las mazmorras. 10/10, todos suspendidos.

Y además, romance.

Por desgracia se acaba al final del primer curso. Daba para hacer la graduación completa y me ha dejado con todas las ganas de seguir, pero bueno, mucha interacción tiene ya en lo que dura para ser un indie.

Como punto negativo, la ambientación está muy poco trabajada, pero los personajes muy bien escritos.

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.

Accidently married Severus Snape in a dark dungeon below the school, then continued to wallow in self-pity for the rest of the playthrough until reloading, fixing my mistake, getting sacrificed for the bloodgod, reloading again and celebrating my days as a socially awkard lesbian witch.
Males are evil. All of them.

10/10, got my bra stolen by the Illuminati at some point.

As a guy that is firmly trying to impose the idea to my friends that I am a Strong male figure and individule, I feel ashamed at having put myself on "offline" mode whilst playing this game after i got it from the humble bundle. But il be damned if it isnt one damn fine First Person Novel with ur actions deciding how well or badly you do, and despite this, the customization is there, the distinct characters with different personalities are present and its a damn fine good play.

To be enjoyed both ironically and unironically, 'Magical Diary' is truly the perfect gift for any occasion.

Featuring more animes per second, with only a fraction of the overreaching schmaltz found in second-rate indie competitors like 'To the Moon,' 'Magical Diary' pulls out all the stops and delivers a magical, one-of-a-kind experience that'll have you saying "I actually don't hate this...?" for years to come.

Is there a demonic wizard bishie waiting in your future? Only one way to find out...

'Magical Diary' gets one Steam Thumb way up from this reviewer.

A dating sim for the young witch in all of us! Like Harry Potter, with a liberal dose of anime and without all that uptight britishness that makes me kinda hate it. Also a liberal dose of progressive gender and sexuality, which is always a fun one, and racial politics too. (That said, I was a *little* offput by the 'marriage is kind of a year-long thing' plot point, even if it makes sense in context...)

Don't be fooled - this is mostly a dating/life sim. There are 'dungeons', but they're more obtuse and annoying puzzle roadblocks I could honestly do without. Persona 3/4 this ain't. Also, you have to be a girl, though you have a wide range of options for your love life, three straight and two gay, and a wide variety of other non-romance events. Romance is legitimate and well-handled - the opposite of Bioware's efforts. (Oh god, flashbacks to terrible competing english VN Planet Stronghold DDDDDDD:)

Overall, takes itself just seriously enough not to be a broad parody, but not so much that it's hard to get into or requires heavy investment. (The default character's name is Mary Sue, if that tells you anything.) Highly recommended for anyone who's even a little into the idea, and even better, sequels are on the way!

Sadly, the best character is unromanceable, despite her obviously being open to the idea of a relationship with a student and a lady. :C Oh, Professor Potsdam, how I long for some private lessons with you... ;o; (maybe she's married? i dunno.)

Studied a lot, still ended up a bad student.

Was very suspicious of the winged boy, not sure if he was legit. Decided to trust him.

Accidentally a married, lost my chance at wing boy. Spent a long time being sad.

Decided to just roll with it. Husband was alright.

Still managed to fail every single test despite being married to the teacher. Finished game a complete failure.

Where did the last 5 hours of my life go?

10/10 Would be a failure again.
