The Honor Student at Magic High School Episode 5 Spoilers

In episode 4, Shizuku, Honoka, and Eimi decide not to tell Miyuki about the attack on her brother, fearing that it will only make her worry. They start investigating the matter and following Kinoe Tsukasa, the student who attacked Tatsuya. When Miyuki tells her brother that she thinks that Honoka and the others are hiding something from her, Tatsuya advises her not to worry. After all, they are her friends; they will eventually open up to her.

After Sayaka Mibu approaches them, she and Tatsuya speak in private, which makes Miyuki jealous. She later learns they spoke about Mibu’s dislike of the Disciplinary Committee and how students are being discriminated against based on their magic grades. Tatsuya correctly guesses that the Disciplinary Committee believes that the international anti-magic organization Blanche is manipulating the disgruntled students.

Realizing that Shizuku, Honoka, and Eimi are following him, Kinoe leads them to a remote alley, where a group of fanatic anti-magic activists attacks the girls. Fortunately, Miyuki arrives in time and saves them. After her friends leave, Miyuki calls Kokonoe Yakumo and requests him to interrogate the assailants before the police arrive. It is revealed that the mastermind behind the anti-magic sentiment at Sky High is Hajime Tsukasa, Kinoe’s stepbrother and head of Blanche’s Japanese Branch.

In an open debate, Mayumi defeats her opponents by simply accepting that discrimination does exist at Sky High and promising that she will eradicate it. The episode ends as Blanche agents attack the school. In episode 5, the attack might be repelled by the Student Council and the Disciplinary Committee. Students such as Kinoe and Sayaka might be apprehended as Blanche supporters. Miyuki and the others might learn that the reason for the attack was to steal information from the school’s computer library.
