    Poor Start to a Promising Concept
    Although this is based purely on the only episode available so far, there is something important to be said for starting well also. This was a bad first impression to make. I'll try another episode on the basis of the fact that this is an adaptation rather than just a new work. If the main character doesn't develop depth and complexity immediately in the first scene of the next episode, however, I ...

    Give it a chance and you will be surprised
    It might seem like another generic school magic harem series but it's Not.

    This is not a Harem anime. It focuses more on the Magic part more than anything.

    The MC is a real surprise but I'm not going to go into details about him.

    Lidenfilms is doing a good job with the animation so far.

    Anyway, give this show a chance (at least 4 episodes) and you might ended up being pleasantly ...

    This sucks, man. There's just nothing TO this show.
    Going into this, I had no expectations, and no knowledge of the source material. Coming out of this, my expectations for the series can go no lower.
    It starts off with some nice girls on their way to school, who are then without warning sexually harassed by a substitute teacher. He's been forced to work at the school by.... someone we meet, but don't really know anything about, besides that shes ...

    for those giving it a bad reveiw for weak MC
    You morons do realize the MC is op right? go read the manga,he only pretends to be weak to hide his past, in reality he is one of the strongest characters.how ever I will fault the creepy tropes in the anime oddly enough its not in the manga, characters are drawn different aswell better in my opinion.

    Loved the Manga, now watching the Anime.
    Enjoyed the story a lot and really want them to start delving deeper into Glenn's back story. All the little arcs are pretty good and I love his personality, girl uniforms on point!!
    I put this light novel adaption highly in the ones I've watched so far, like Gate, Grimgar, Dan Machi, Log Horizon, The Irregular. It is a good universe and the way they go exploring it keeps me entertained.

  • Overall this is an interesting anime
    I think it is a great anime. Reading the manga gives the main character a great build up to his full potential. I can't wait to see how similar the manga and anime will be. Overall I do enjoy the anime so far. The main character is pretty funny and hopefully we see good character build!

    Shaping up to be a nice watch. mild reactions to episode 1 and 2.
    Bloody Buffet Reviews

    In short
    Episode 1: *every time the protagonist is on the screen* Gee whiz what a butthead the magical education system is in shambles. *panty attack* Oh look at all of the fanservice. Time to cry myself to sleep for watching such garbage.
    Episode 2: *first leg of the journey* Well serve my balls for breakfast that went in a nice direction. *halfway in* Oh my ...

    The fastest 180 I've ever had on an Anime (AKA don't let episode one turn you away)
    Because do not be fooled, the first episode is absolutely AWFUL. The cast is uninteresting and full of tropes, the motivation is stupid, the magic is mediocre to look at, the ecchi feels like it was included as an afterthought (yeah, yeah, just make all the girls in the school wear 50% less clothes for no reason) and the main character is pathetic at best... Until you get to the second episode. ...

    Stick around for Episode 2
    Right away I should tell you that the first episode doesn't capture the essence of the show. Its really cringy and doesn't really provide enough backstory to give a darn. Its more to make you hate the MC so much you want to punch his teeth out.

    After that though, the story gets awesome really fast and its worth sticking around for. The second episode is where you get all the backstory of the ...

  • Surprisingly good Anime
    When I first started watching this Anime I was very skeptical, as it reminded me of countless other Ecchi/Harem Anime before it. But as the first episode went by I was pleasantly surprised with the development, both story and character.
    Episode 2, much like the latter part of the 1st got me excited, as viewers truy see what the MC (Main Characters) personality is truly like. Looking forward ...
