    Stick around for Episode 2
    Right away I should tell you that the first episode doesn't capture the essence of the show. Its really cringy and doesn't really provide enough backstory to give a darn. Its more to make you hate the MC so much you want to punch his teeth out.

    After that though, the story gets awesome really fast and its worth sticking around for. The second episode is where you get all the backstory of the ...

    The fastest 180 I've ever had on an Anime (AKA don't let episode one turn you away)
    Because do not be fooled, the first episode is absolutely AWFUL. The cast is uninteresting and full of tropes, the motivation is stupid, the magic is mediocre to look at, the ecchi feels like it was included as an afterthought (yeah, yeah, just make all the girls in the school wear 50% less clothes for no reason) and the main character is pathetic at best... Until you get to the second episode. ...

    Give it a chance and you will be surprised
    It might seem like another generic school magic harem series but it's Not.

    This is not a Harem anime. It focuses more on the Magic part more than anything.

    The MC is a real surprise but I'm not going to go into details about him.

    Lidenfilms is doing a good job with the animation so far.

    Anyway, give this show a chance (at least 4 episodes) and you might ended up being pleasantly ...

    Anime off to a great start!
    So this is my very first review but I got to say...do not judge the episode off the first episode, it will get better and interesting as the anime continue.

    The first episode was really well done, I read the manga before and they gone to the length to make it more detailed and add a few part that weren't even shown in the first few chapters of the manga. The FAN-SERVICE in the anime was shown ...

    Central Themes Are Important
    Akashic Records is an interesting anime in that it tries to tackle big themes in a way that can be understood by young people, while also being a fanservice centric anime.

    While I appreciate the attempt, these elements constantly work against each other, undermining what could have been a much better story. Like, the idea of making the main character seem like a shitty person in the first ...

    This series has a long title so it should be good, right?
    To be frank, I've been waiting for all of the winter season to end just to watch this series. Glen is an interesting character in an interesting story that, not trying to spoil anyone who hasn't read the Manga or Light Novel, you probably will have to wait til episode 3 to get a feel for the real plot of this series. For crying out loud, he's the BASTARD INSTRUCTOR! You don't see many of those ...

    Shaping up to be a nice watch. mild reactions to episode 1 and 2.
    Bloody Buffet Reviews

    In short
    Episode 1: *every time the protagonist is on the screen* Gee whiz what a butthead the magical education system is in shambles. *panty attack* Oh look at all of the fanservice. Time to cry myself to sleep for watching such garbage.
    Episode 2: *first leg of the journey* Well serve my balls for breakfast that went in a nice direction. *halfway in* Oh my ...

    No different from Asterisk War or The Irregular at Magic High School.
    Ok, so right off the bat, i'm gonna say this: if you like this anime, good for you, i'm not going to try to convince you otherwise.
    But the way I see it, this anime is just awful. It claims to be different by having the main character be the teacher rather than the student, and have him be purposefully lazy and incompetent to teach. Unfortunately, just because you're different doesn't make you ...

    Already getting better
    The first episode was lacking, generic, and overall not great and I had given a bad rating because of it. HOWEVER! The second episode was AWESOME and I feel like the show will continue to get even better. If that's the case my score for it will increase as well.

    Overall, watch the first two episodes before making a decision to drop it after the first.

    I wasn't expecting this
    I just started this 2 days ago and finished it today at 1:00 AM. I have binged super hard because I really like this show. It has comedy and bloody scenes (Perfect mix); however, it doesn't mean that this show goes without it's problems.

    3 out of the 4 times something bad happens, it's the same group of people doing the same thing, trying to kill or steal the heroine Rumia.

    I would like a ...
