    The was a pretty funny episode
    Hadn't heard of this before so I don't have any info on it. So far only the first episode is out at the moment, but while watching it I found it genuinely funny! Hopefully the rest of the show continues like this. I will definitely continue watching for the time being.

    Decently executed shallow slapstick comedy with fan service
    This review is based only on the first episode.

    The story follows a young man who has been recently hired as an instructor at a magic academy. The academy in question has a heavily sexualized school uniform for the female students. In terms of fan service the first episode also included some groping in the changing room and similar fan service, which seemed a little out of place and forced ...

    This series has a long title so it should be good, right?
    To be frank, I've been waiting for all of the winter season to end just to watch this series. Glen is an interesting character in an interesting story that, not trying to spoil anyone who hasn't read the Manga or Light Novel, you probably will have to wait til episode 3 to get a feel for the real plot of this series. For crying out loud, he's the BASTARD INSTRUCTOR! You don't see many of those ...

    Oh, another genius slacker trope personified.
    Yes, another magic academy anime.
    Yes, another harem anime.
    Yes, another 'genius slacker' main character.
    Here's the difference, though: he's a pedophile! oh YAAAAAAAAAAAY.
    Seriously, the fact that they're trying to play off the age difference between the male protagonist and his harem as being not a big deal because of the old trope of 'he just looks mature but he's actually only a few years ...

    It's an old formula in a new format. It hsa developed into one of the most engaging anime if this season.It's
    It has an interesting premise, a lazy, bumbling and talented teacher of a class of elite magic students, opens up some interesting avenues. There was the typical fan service and the school outfits are a bit risque, but I think '"creepy" and "pedophilic" are going too far. The characters are cute and the teacher is engaging. I appreciate some fan service. The animation is well done and the voice ...

    Anime by the numbers
    So if you have seen any anime lately you have seen this show. It follows the light novel to anime adaptation formula to the t. Characters are on their way to prestigious magic/sword/robot/puppet/combat/insert what ever school and run into main character and have a bad first impression. They get to class and meet the main character again and have a conflict. Main male character sees main female ...

    Light novel the anime (aka beyond generic)
    If you've ever watched the anime adaptation of a light novel then you've already seen this anime. The only thing original in this series is the designs of the uniforms and they look awful.

    Part 1:

    The main character is generic light novel guy. He makes his return from every other story in this genre to be a substitute teacher. The twist is that he is drawn 1 head taller than the rest of the ...

    3rd episode has come out. The series has definitely picked up! Don't be turned away by the first episode!
    1st Episode not so great, 2nd episode starts to pick up pace, then the Third episode. Great, it really puts a nice touch to the hidden past of the teacher. It really takes a good turn for the best. I ended up reading the manga after the 2nd episode. This show is really becoming something good. I just hope they don't try to shortcut too many of the details of the teachers past.

    this show has promise, it only remains to be seen how far it will go
    Well, with the 1st episode, we meet the main protagonists and it has a chance to develop quite nicely with, hopefully, a few twists and turns along the way...
    What is also interesting will be how they handle the 'backstory'. How in depth the characters become will also be interesting to see. The graphics are good and no 'hokey' scenes so far so there is hope there too. Lets all wait and see ...

    Show title sums it up perfectly
    This show is hilarious, just when you expect one of the protagonists to step up and deliver some crazy hidden talent they fuck up. It is a very nice change up from the simple 'I am the protagonist so I must win in the end! Witness my incredibly overpowered strength!'. If you didn't like it the first time you watched it, watch it again. If you don't like it then, you should probably stop watching ...
