I think you misunderstand. I'm not saying magic itself is bad, but to say it doesn't need to be explained isn't quite right.
Look at magic in video games - you spend life force, or mana, or health or whatever the game uses to channel the magic directly through you. The stronger you get, the more mana you get and the better you can use it(stronger spells). FF7, for example, you're using pieces of the planet infused with the planet's energy to channel powerful magics.
If anime is more your thing, look at A certain magical index or toaru majutsu no index. Every type of magic has certain rules associated with it, IE: You can summon a giant molten demon..but it's fairly uncontrollable and can only be restricted to an area you already planned out. etc.
When you use incantations, Why are you using them? When you use magic, what are you giving up? If you can just freely do whatever you want without any restrictions, it becomes rather difficult to manage from a story telling perspective and can come off lazy. If there are no rules laid down, it's hard for the audience to suspend their disbelief.
Even if it isn't fully explained, a little bit does help. Look at harry potter - who are they incanting to? Why does "Wingardium Leviosa" make things fly? Why do they need to swing their wands properly? Even though this isn't explained(at least in the movie) you clearly see rules being established - improper wand usage makes magic fizzle, improper pronunciation can cause catastrophic results(diagonally instead of Diagon Alley, for example). It shows you WHY they have to go to school. Small mistakes can lead to horrible results. Even when rules are broken, like wandless or silent magic, that leads us to believe that more powerful magicians can command magic directly or something of the sort. If these rules WEREN'T previously set in place, we wouldn't think anything of how powerful Dobby is or the man in the coffee shop.
"It's just magic" is a lazy tool of the unimaginative.

If even magic in all fantasy should have a Scientific explanation then magic Would lose its charm and become boring. Im not saying there shouldnt be in Universe explanation its awesome when Works do that but making everything straight science Would be plain boring. In my opinion
