    YOU WILL BE SURPRISED
    This show is amazing! To anyone who reads this know that it most gets a whole lot better after the first episode, you honestly start to dislike the teacher but once episode two starts things start to click together and you find yourself actually enjoying the show and wanting more of it. Give it a try! I promise that if you can make it past episode one then you'll truly be in for a treat!

  • 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.

    AMAZING Animation. One to start watching now
    I really love the animation, first of all. Sistine is just so cute....I don't know how you couldn't be hooked just because of her. The show is just starting out so there is a lot of room for growth! I think this is a good one to get hooked on now! A+++

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

    Great anime. The best anime this year
    This is a great anime. It kinda starts slow but it picks up as the story progresses. It has great potential to be one of the best. Some reviewers gave it a low rating but I would not be influenced if I were you. Give it a try and yo will see how great an anime this one really is.

    Central Themes Are Important
    Akashic Records is an interesting anime in that it tries to tackle big themes in a way that can be understood by young people, while also being a fanservice centric anime.

    While I appreciate the attempt, these elements constantly work against each other, undermining what could have been a much better story. Like, the idea of making the main character seem like a shitty person in the first ...
