  • It's got issues but I'm enjoying it a lot
    If you like arrogant MC's, this is another show for you. I really like when anime takes that route after seeing so much of the opposite. The story is kind of predictable, but the characters are still interesting. It's a bit of a harem anime, but not really ecchi. Really the MC is what makes it for me. I don't often find shows I binge through anymore, but this has been one of the few.

  • People didn't like the first episode?!
    Ok, so i read the reviews, and expected to have to sit through a shit first episode before getting to the good stuff. Ho damn was I wrong! The main character is the most lovable, preposterous douchebag I have ever seen, and I have instantly fallen in love. The show has superbly clever writing, and immediately begins playing with your expectations. I've only watched the first episode, but I feel ...

  • It's Great - Give it a chance!
    This is one of the best shows I have seen in awhile. Although the show is still quite new, all of the characters are very memorable and very funny. While the first episode sets up the main character as kind of a jerk, you can't help but laugh at his funny mannerisms and dialogue. It's his character to be a bastard after all! The show has many elements from different genres it has action, comedy, ...

    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.
