Their school categorizes students based on their magic skills to which Tatsuya falls short, thus, earning him the “irregular” label. “The Irregular at Magic High School” season 2 will pick up from the progress Tatsuya made in the earlier installment, proving his skills despite the lack of natural magic abilities. But those developments will earn him unwanted attention from foreign forces making him a target.
