  • Don't judge a book by it's first episode!
    I've watched a lot of anime in my life. Never has the first episode been such a poor first impression of a very solid anime. The first episode completely fails to convey the tone and quality of the rest of this show. Basically, watch at LEAST 2 episodes before you decide if you want to keep going with this show.

    This is another anime based on a light novel, and as of June 2017 it's lone season ...

  • I love this show so much already.
    It's 3 in the morning and I just finished watching every single episode and I've spent the last hour as well looking/reading the manga/light novel. Everything bout this anime was beyond my expectations and I genuinely can't wait till they release more episodes/volumes. Honestly pretty sad I have to wait however long to see more. No regrets whatsoever and I'm sure anyone else who takes the time to ...

    Great start and would love season 2.
    Great show overall and I look forward to more, characters developed well and I'm curious where it all leads up to.

    Mature themes and complicated relationships, Glenn Radars is just an awesome troll character.

    So I read all the 1 and 2 star comments and the common trend is that people hated it because it has perverted parts which I found funny, most 1 star people had some PC/SJW bias saying ...

  • Pretty cool. Tad cheesy
    I enjoyed this one. I liked the animation, characters, OST.
    It's a tad cheesy, fairly at times. But i thought it was a decent anime that at times made me smile and laugh.
    Some cool action and combat scenes. Some fan service without being over the top.
    It didn't really explain some of the situations that Glen survived but i guess it's not uncommon in anime for main characters to survive a ...

  • Slow to start but quickly picks up pace
    Don't judge this show by episode one. The show becomes much better quickly as it delves deeper into each character a little, revealing little bits and pieces as we go. 11 episodes in and this feels a lot like a set up for the next season, with small 3 episode Arcs giving us brief glimpses into each Character.

    However a very enjoyable show with lovable characters

  • Fun with battles! xD
    That's a really good anime! Have comedy, action, magic. The animation is pretty good. Have a history good enough and I would like to see a second season.

    I don't want to write a longer review. This is a text to complete the characters to send the text above. Sorry xP

    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 ...

  • Watch past the 1st episode! Can't stress that enough.
    As a viewer you may have to get past two things to enjoy this show. If you have a hang up on the girls uniform that will be one. The second is the first impression given by the substitute teacher during the first episode. The first episode does gives hints on why he is behaving that way. (Not so much on the skimpy girls uniforms... :p) But it can be hard to get into. Having read other reviews I ...

    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.

  • 4.5 out of 5 Review after 7 Episodes
    This anime is a mix of action, magic, and high school life. Sort of. When I first saw this anime I assumed "Oh it's going to be a story about high school life in a magic school and the students fall for the teacher. Girly anime." Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. It has some of those elements, but there's fighting, blood, and a very ballsy (and a bit pervy) teacher. I aspire to be as ballsy as ...
