  • An MC with a great personality!
    I honestly enjoyed this anime a lot more than I thought I would. The first episode was kind of...meh, but then it picks up and gets so much better! The MC is actually very likable, smart and doesn't have just a one-sided personality. While I typically like an OP MC, I'd much prefer that he has a certain measure of suspense about him. Decent plot, good character development and an overall fun anime ...

  • Cute and interesting
    A fantastic show with strongly developed characters and a smooth and interesting plot line. It got better with every episode especially after the first. I hope to see a second season soon!! I would recommend watching at least 3 episodes before deciding whether to watch it or not.

  • A MUST WATCH ANIME!!
    Honestly, i have to say this was probably my favorite anime that came out last year. I think it was funny, the art design is good and the character are interesting. There is also so many questions left unanswered about this amazing world created in this story. Voice acting for the Dub was also great and well picked. So if you like dubbed anime you will love this one.

  • Typical Magic school fighting series
    What's there to set "ARofBMI" to set it apart from it's competition? Not a whole lot. Fairly standard hero with secrets, ala "Irregular at Magic High", or even "GATE". Surround him with several powerful female characters we've all seen before. Attack them with your standard Secret Evil Bad Guys, Inc.. Defeat Bad Guys for the moment. Que season 2.
    One thing that "BMI" does well is string the ...

    A Meh Review for a Meh Show
    Note: This review is based off the first season of Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor.

    Ok. Now bear with me. I know that instantly giving a liked show a low rating could get my publicly destroyed, but as a reviewer, I make reviews that honestly express my opinion and frankly I make these more for myself than for anyone else. Let me cut to the chase. This show is meh. Not great, not ...

  • I absolutely Love it!
    I absolutely love this show, at first, I wasn't sure but I watch a couple of episodes and was hooked, it changes up so you really need to stick with it and I promise you won't regret it, I really hope season two won't be long out, Its left me wanting more.

    Second Watching of the Season
    The show starts very strong. Good humor, fun slapstick comedy, mysterious dark pasts, and some tsundere for spice. The problem is, the show rushes through 5 out of 9 light novel volumes. It makes the characters stale crackers and the story a slice of dry Swiss cheese. The characters are 2 dimensional, incomplete, forgettable. Season one covers 3 story arcs, most back story is told in a rushed ...

  • Not what I expected.
    When I saw this here, I thought "Hey, why not. Seems like it could be fun or at least so bad it's good." Looking at the cover and the description I thought it was going to be a kind of preposterous Magical Girl-High School Comedy with a ridiculously heavy dose of fan service. Like Kämpfer or something similar. Or that they'd play it straight...like School Days...

    Staying optimistic ...

  • Some originality to this Magical School anime
    The first episode with the main character Glenn being a pervert, arrogant, and incompetent isn't really representative of the rest of the series. The next 5 episodes are actually pretty good and show off how Glenn's greater understanding of magic can offset raw power and speed. I like the character backstories, and their emotions are portrayed well. Glenn is a good teacher when he wants to be and ...
