  • Pretty Average Anime
    Nothing special. Okay writing. Okay action scenes. Nice character development. Pretty average anime. Would recommend for to pass some time by. I did like the main character tho. The main character is pretty funny and has that hey I am a goof ball but can get things done when I am needed.

  • Bland Anime, had great potential
    This anime has such a clever spin on a main character, but ended up falling really flat with characters, plot, etc. Starts off slow, and rushes through the ending. The only reason why I finished it was for hoping that the plot would get better, only to be sorely disappointed. Kudos to those that liked it, but to me, it was bland and a waste of time.

  • It's Not Bad But Not Great Either.
    Except for the girls school uniforms which are quite sexy theirs nothing a whole lot new to see here pretty clique all around usual tropes and characters and situations I've seen this many times but I have to admit that it was presented pretty well and I would mildly recommend it does have a bit of teaser fan service. I give a solid 3 here and a about a 6 on a 1 to 10 scale.

  • Starts out good and gets really good
    The first episode is funny and caught my attention but it's obvious that it lacks depth. Not to worry. Each successive episode quickly fills in more and more backstory for this enigmatic new teacher that reveals he is not at all what he appears. What starts out as distrust and disdain between teacher and students transforms into a tight-knit group that takes on all comers: student and non-student ...

  • A typical most of anime
    The story, everything is just a typical common most of ecchi, harem, romance, action things and it don't have the things that stand out or things to be different from. Well at least every season have one of this show
    It still fun to watch if you never get bored with this kind of show especially if you love ecchi harem with action things. Still recommended to ecchi harem action fans

    First and last episodes feel flat. Watch this for the middle!
    Like my review title says, the first episode feels very flat. Although depth starts creeping in towards the end of the first episode. And the last episode also felt like a copy of some other lower budget anime with C list writers.

    But the middle episodes have real plot and character depth in them. Even when the characters act in a stereotyped manner, it still manages to feel like they're ...

    Lacks Depth and Interest
    Seems too similar to a few other space-school like animes that have come out the past 2 or 3 years. Not only that, the characters lack any real depth, the flow of the story is slow and story itself seems flat.

    This was just a big "nope" for me. Would not recommend at all.

    So bad it needs a Plinkett Review.
    The world building is nonexistent. The characters are flat, uninteresting, and been done to death a thousand times, and much better in other anime. The writing is pedestrian levels of cringe and uninspired. I won't knock a novice that's trying their best. But mimicking every troupe you've seen and only able to write action scenes where the protagonist uses his white knight powers to save the ...

  • NGNL Except the magic makes sense
    The MC is honestly a badass and it gets to the point where you don't even wonder if he will win, but how. Similar feeling to the one that shows like NGNL or Code Geass give you.

    Although the first episode makes it seem like its gonna turn into a harem shitshow, the show itself seems more like an inversion on that trope, if anything.

    Just give it a chance and you'll probably enjoy it.
