Episode 1 is now out.

Episode 1

Whoever designed those girls uniforms must be a pervert, and is exactly how Glenn likes it. Glenn sure acts every bit the bastard the title implies and even if he is just a sub, his presence is nothing short of outrageous, but Celica hand-picked him for the job and won't take no for an answer. Sistine sure takes issue and beats him up in a duel. And so, it begins with every cliche in the harem book being thrown into the first episode, and the MC is so irritating. I'll continue on for now, but at the moment it has a laundry list of problems.

I saw this on TV earlier and man, this was really bad. Like, they throw in every generic trope into the book:

- Generic MC (similar to Rakudai) but not as cool
- Fan service (bath scenes)
- Battle academy theme
- Female characters with the most typical personalities from harems
- Cliche/dumb comedy

Only good thing so far imo is the animation. Celica is a cool girl to watch I guess.

Pretty bad start.

Episode 1

The first episode we are introduced to Celica and Rumia who run into someone who's in hurry and use magic to stop him. Well turns out this person is Glenn and their new teacher who turns out to be a lazy. We get some nice fan service and even get a duel when Celica gets tired of Glenn not teaching the class right. The first episode was not bad and sure to pick up as it goes along.

This sums it up nicely.

The tropes in the series are too overused and cliche sadly despite the entertainment value

Well, some of the character designs are cute but other than that it's typical battle school harem garbage.

It's been awhile since I've watched harem trash, always a nice change of pace, will probably keep up with this one

The clothes disparity kept me thoroughly distracted throughout and after the episode. Also, why do the male students not wear a glove to issue challenges?

Man, Glenn sure is one hell of a character. Lazy, annoying, pervert and so, the list goes on. Can't say i'm a fan of his. What i would like to see is that he shaped up.

The start is not good but hopefully, just hopefully, gets better later. Even if it's a little.
