    im definitely expecting a Season 2
    Great anime and the ending could lead to so many possibilities. I hope a season 2 comes out soon! I really enjoyed the vibe from the characters and the animation was pretty good. Felt like some things were rushed but thats why more seasons can be great for this!

    A Strong Start and a Poor Finish Result in an Average Anime
    Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor is, in many ways, the perfect example for the importance of pacing and consistency in a story throughout a series.

    After a fairly mundane episode 1, ARoBMI began opening up, with character development and world fleshing becoming prevalent components of each episode. Characters began to develop personalities with mostly coherent backstories and ...

    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 ...

    A worthless bastard you'll learn to love
    The title says it all. The teacher starts out as a hilarious dead beat and he transforms magnificently into...an extremely badass hilarious dead beat. Some of the female roles are a bit weak but that's usually how anime like this one goes. Overall I'm very pleased.

    The Quality Goes Up and Down
    As many people have said in previous reviews, the anime's first episode is kinda eh, but the second and third episodes are great improvements beyond the first. However, the anime soon drops off again and settles into being a simply mediocre quality anime. It becomes overly dramatic and what's her face, not Rumia, but the other unmemorable girl, is simply annoying. Honestly, after the first ...

    Came for the cute girls, stayed for the cute girls (there's also some cool magic stuff too)
    This is up to date as of episode 7!

    Pros:
    - Gorgeous character designs
    - Very solid animation
    - Good pacing
    - Enjoyable story with a big cast

    Cons:
    - Some of the dialogue can be a little awkward
    - Packed with tropes and several main characters feel extremely flat

    Thus far the series has given me a lot of enjoyment. The main character and his class are all pretty standard, but it ...

    Woulda Coulda Shoulda
    Reviewing this as of episode 3.

    So 4 stars is a pretty solid rating, and it deserves that because with the exception of AoT its the series i look most forward to watching this season. If this was completed it would be one of them i just burn thru in a day or two i can tell. Very addicting leaving you wanting to watch more.

    But i have a huge problem with it, its actually a great show ...

    Mmmmmm maybe worth watching?
    Yea I'll admit it, it isn't that fan servicey, but it will most likely have more to come. It does have the main character with a blood soaked past, but it made up for it by showing that he is trying to atone for it now. Still it's worth watching if you don't mind the cliches and are okay with some tried and proven ideas. The animation is pretty good and the magic that is animated is pretty good. ...

    Solid show, one of the better this season
    I enjoy the protagonists back and forth and it's overall just fun to watch. Nothing too serious, it's probably not a stand-out anime that people are always hoping for but it's funny any easy to watch along with what may come to be a good story line.
