Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 12

Review: 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 … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 12

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 11

Review: In case it hasn't become clear, Glenn really doesn't have any shame but at least he understood his opponent and the tactics he would be up against and devised a suitable counter, even if he didn't play to win but merely bring the duel to a draw. That said, his basic personality is all … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 11

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 10

Review: Okay, right from the start my biggest issue with this show was Glenn. He was lazy and unforgivably sloppy at his job (which effected the well being of the students in his care), and basically his attitude sucked. Despite backstory which tried to excuse it, that didn't make the initial impressions of this character … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 10

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 9

Review: Drama, drama, drama. In this episode we get Re=L's backstory, a fairly cool fight sequence, some magic spells thrown around, the old guy's plan totally foiled, rescue the Princess, and make up with all our school friends to live happily ever after playing beach volleyball. It's all very exciting but kind of feels like … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 9

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 8

Review: Well, they certainly upped the damage this week but I'm not sure what else this accomplished. Re=L has a complicated past tied up with her brother and the weird divine researchers secret cult thing that seems like one of the least secret organisations ever. The students get a lecture about revival magic which I'm … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 8

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 7

Review: This episode did an excellent job of reminding me why I hated Glenn during episode 1 and why, despite the positive personality traits he's exhibited since, I always remember that I hate this character. It doesn't help the last few minutes of screen time he gets this episode attempts to make him seem all … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 7

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 6

Review: So the opening of this episode was super tense for about a minute and then they pulled a stupid gag and the whole thing just kind of fell flat. Which might indicate this was a bad episode, and yet, oddly enough, they managed to pull something pretty decent from the wreckage of that first … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 6

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 3

Review: This week I have to say this show was genuinely fun to watch. That doesn't mean it wasn't without issues, but it just kept things moving along nicely with three different confrontations for Glenn and three different solutions. I'm going to be honest, it isn't much of a secret society if Glenn can identify … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 3

Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 2

Review: This episode was trying really hard to try to give Glenn some redeeming characteristics though given episode 1 and given the title it is kind of hard to take it seriously. Plus, regardless of any dark back story, personal trauma, or occasional moment of caring, Glenn is still a jerk. However... What episode 2 … Continue reading Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor Episode 2
