    Most Underrated Anime This Season
    I am a bit surprised this anime is not as popular as it should be. If you judge this anime by its cover you will miss out greatly. While it is no masterpiece, it is definitely a solid 8/10 and one of the better shows this season because of the mc. The mc, Glenn Radars, is very enjoyable and entertaining throughout the show. The plot and soundtrack, while not being perfect, are still exceptional. ...

  • Keep an open mind! / Great Foreshadowing
    At first part of me was rejecting how much I really enjoy this series because I couldn't get past the uniforms. Once I got over that and stopped being critical I found myself really loving the plot and wanting to see more. Also there's awesome use of foreshadowing in each episode that kept me engaged.

    Loveable Characters!
    The one thing that really charmed me about this show was how the characters weren't so cliche it makes you question your love of anime. There are some tropes, but there are also unique characteristics in each character that makes me really love them all. This show is great!

  • Keep watching, it does get better!
    The first episode seems a bit lazy as far as work done, and may not interest you very much. However, the show gets increasingly better the more episodes you watch and all can be forgiven from the first episode! I love the story so far and cannot wait to see the remaining episodes in the season.

  • Pervy but Funny Magic School
    It is a nice show so far with some interesting plot twists. But you cannot ignore the fact that it is pervy. All the girls wear miniskirts and mini shirts that are connected to their Undies. But it does add some fun situations. So far it is a nice show to fill the time while waiting for other shows.

    Pleasantly better than terrible.
    Many were mentioning that there would be some sort of turnaround to this anime after a few episodes. Frankly as far as I'm concerned, there isn't. Blatant fanservice outfits, your standard "ripped from various light novels seemingly initially useless main character who is actually some sort of badass". He'll corral together a harem of initially distrusting school students and maybe one token male ...

  • Interesting Characters And So Much Potential
    With only a few episodes in I'm hooked! The characters are all different and have so much more backstory that we may or may not get to know. I'm excited to see if this series takes a serious turn or stays on this light hearted path. Regardless I'm ready to follow these characters and their story.

  • Better Than Expected
    This anime is a fun and grabs the audianc's attention well. It is comparable to something along the lines of "The Irregular at Magic High School", only the main character isn't swarmed by admiring women (at least not yet). Its worth taking a look at if you want a lighthearted anime with a well thought out storyline.

  • If it was just based on episode 2 and 3(and probably on) this would most likely be a five star
    Honestly I thought Akashic Records was going to be a legit horrible anime to join the rest of the bad magical academy animes. But BOY did it break my expectations. It honestly has a bad first episode. Like…REALLY bad. Almost gave up right then and there. The cast wasn’t that great, the humor wasn’t good, the twist at the end of episode 1 was pretty cool but not enough to keep me going.

    Honestly ...

  • Class is in session, pull up a chair (First Reaction Episodes 1-3) [Spoilers]
    I first came across the show on Twitter when Crunchyroll posted a video saying "You need to watch this all the way" and I obliged. The thumbnail for the video was a scene of a silver haired girl crying saying "Please help me!" or whatever so already I was intrigued. I later put it in my queue to watch for later. I ended up watching it Sunday and was delighted to see what was put on the ...
