You just have to keep inflation in mind. It's not that hard to calculate.

If I can be frank, in terms of plot development and characterization this anime was a mess. The art was fine, the animation was good, the soundtracks were great. But. That. Is. Not. A. Story.

You take a Gary Stu with his sister Mary Sue, insert it, offer a logical explanation for his OPness so late that someone like me is struggling to watch (must watch all episodes - that is my Way of Otaku).

On a scale of 1 - 10 (the anime storywise is a 3) how good are the LNs for Mahouka considering an averagely good anime/manga/LN to land on a 7?

is is possible to pick up the novel where the anime left off or should I start with vol 1 of the novel?

It is possible, but I would VERY HIGHLY recommend that you read the novels over, as the anime wasn't a good representation at all in my opinion. You'd be losing a lot by starting off where the anime left off. Also, the series has been licensed, so...

NP I have the Novels up to 16 where the Mahouka wiki group picked up translating and hosting it, and I actually got a reply there as well saying that i should start over because the anime cut out a lot of Character development and world building namely in the physics of how the magic works and I hear Tatsuya in the anime is day and night different with the Novel in a Nutshell the anime Tatsuya is being a Gary Stu and and the Novel him being an Anti-Hero. is that sound about right?

No, actullay, Tatsuya is pretty badass in the novels too, but his character and the other characters are more fleshed out. However, they do cut a lot of detail about his abilities, and as you mentioned, the world itself was something that is hard to explain on in an anime setting, and I really enjoyed that part personally. The problem is that they crammed too much into one season, so the pacing is off and everything is very disappointing considering what it could have been. That's generally the case with most adaptations, but this one was quite bad in my opinion.
