This show kind of gave its best and worst in this final episode. It reminded us of the ridiculous outfits and ways it has treated its female cast even while making us laugh as Re=L threatens to take down Leos.
It gave us a truly absurd wedding dress and what did they do to Sistine’s hair?
We also had a villain whose motives were poorly explained and who seemed fairly mentally unbalanced which has become something of a trend for this series.
That said, we also got a really cool magic fight and Glenn got some of his slightly cooler moments fairly reminiscent of the episode where he first started actually teaching magic and not being a complete waste of space.
All and all, this episode concludes the whole Sistine marriage to Leos thing (which was kind of concluded before the episode only, who knew) and they at least remember that the Akashic Records are in the title of the show, but otherwise we’re still none the wiser about most of the other aspects of the world or storyline. While I didn’t hate this, I wasn’t exactly sitting on the edge of my seat either.
I’ll complete a full series review of this shortly.
Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor is available on Crunchyroll.
