    No different from Asterisk War or The Irregular at Magic High School.
    Ok, so right off the bat, i'm gonna say this: if you like this anime, good for you, i'm not going to try to convince you otherwise.
    But the way I see it, this anime is just awful. It claims to be different by having the main character be the teacher rather than the student, and have him be purposefully lazy and incompetent to teach. Unfortunately, just because you're different doesn't make you ...

  • Fun with battles! xD
    That's a really good anime! Have comedy, action, magic. The animation is pretty good. Have a history good enough and I would like to see a second season.

    I don't want to write a longer review. This is a text to complete the characters to send the text above. Sorry xP

  • Slow to start but quickly picks up pace
    Don't judge this show by episode one. The show becomes much better quickly as it delves deeper into each character a little, revealing little bits and pieces as we go. 11 episodes in and this feels a lot like a set up for the next season, with small 3 episode Arcs giving us brief glimpses into each Character.

    However a very enjoyable show with lovable characters

  • Pretty cool. Tad cheesy
    I enjoyed this one. I liked the animation, characters, OST.
    It's a tad cheesy, fairly at times. But i thought it was a decent anime that at times made me smile and laugh.
    Some cool action and combat scenes. Some fan service without being over the top.
    It didn't really explain some of the situations that Glen survived but i guess it's not uncommon in anime for main characters to survive a ...

    A Strong Start and a Poor Finish Result in an Average Anime
    Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor is, in many ways, the perfect example for the importance of pacing and consistency in a story throughout a series.

    After a fairly mundane episode 1, ARoBMI began opening up, with character development and world fleshing becoming prevalent components of each episode. Characters began to develop personalities with mostly coherent backstories and ...

    cesspool of poor writing and generic one dimensional characters
    Im Gonna start this off by saying ive completed aroumd 250 different shows to date and that my rating of 1/5 or 2/10 on a 10 scale reflects that 80% of the shows ive watched are better than this one. Im not saying this show has 0 entertainment value to be found. Now ill try to keep this short and sweet because itd be silly to put more effort into writing this review than the writers put into ...

    im definitely expecting a Season 2
    Great anime and the ending could lead to so many possibilities. I hope a season 2 comes out soon! I really enjoyed the vibe from the characters and the animation was pretty good. Felt like some things were rushed but thats why more seasons can be great for this!

    Great start and would love season 2.
    Great show overall and I look forward to more, characters developed well and I'm curious where it all leads up to.

    Mature themes and complicated relationships, Glenn Radars is just an awesome troll character.

    So I read all the 1 and 2 star comments and the common trend is that people hated it because it has perverted parts which I found funny, most 1 star people had some PC/SJW bias saying ...

    I wasn't expecting this
    I just started this 2 days ago and finished it today at 1:00 AM. I have binged super hard because I really like this show. It has comedy and bloody scenes (Perfect mix); however, it doesn't mean that this show goes without it's problems.

    3 out of the 4 times something bad happens, it's the same group of people doing the same thing, trying to kill or steal the heroine Rumia.

    I would like a ...
