    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 ...

  • 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!
