Pretty sure that everybody have been part of a team. Forming and picking your team members would always be the great idea and it comes the other way around when you get queued with random people which you are no idea of what their capabilities are.
I see this team stuff often in professional gaming scene. It happens when a successful gaming franchise starts to crumble with their current roster leading the franchise no choice but to reshuffle their team roster. A franchise has to kick a player or two, or maybe the whole team to replace new members just to see if it would alleviate the situation to save its sinking name. I saw it happened a lot on Natus Vincere's (Na'Vi) Dota 2 team and leaving just Dendi an pioneer member of the team with new sets of team mates. Let's pray that it won't happen to the 35th test platoon of the anti-magic academy.
It is very easy to read on where the Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon's story will go. As an anime enthusiast, I can say that the plot is not really unique at all. I've seen this fantasy-romance- harem stories a million times already. Well, this adaptation of Toki Yanagimi's work may not be an eye-catcher for me, but the first season of the anime is still very light to watch compared to some ecchi anime out there. I hope that it gets a second season though and show the anime land how good the content really is. Come on Silver Link studies, I know you can do it.
