Was an alright ending, too bad the series itself was average. The villain this time was a bit (just a bit) better than the previous ones... who is not saying much, but, hey! it could have been worse. At least it wasn't Leos after all.

I won't mind a second season if the studio decides to make one eventually. I hope for a Celica arc at least.

Is that the one where Glenn got genderswapped? Because I would throw money at them to make it happen.

They were setting themselves up for more material. The whole anime felt like Strike the Blood to me in its progression and atmosphere. Maybe it'll get a sequel via OVA's like that one too. Who knows? I'd be cool with it.
I wish Cowboy Bebop never existed.

Glenn crashing the wedding and sistine is scared of glenn who goes angry mode :O
Leos was just a tool used by the former imperial executor jastice who is obsessed with justice and taking down the empire.
He's defeated by the help of sistine but he gets away :(

8/10, ending with glenn fitting in his teaching role and sets up some new plot.

Want something like DXD ending but.... ok i guess? can't you shut up Sistine for a bit

I hope Sistine got hurt when she look at Glenn for some speech but nope or Glenn can it at least give more damage before you run to Sistine?

I would have rated this show 8 if the MC wasn't such a pervert, especially in the beginning. As it is, 7.
I do not regret watching this one, but it isn't going into the hall of fame.

Still, I'd say this episode's wedding was pretty uneventful. Ofc, Glenn would get involved because he does a lot of saving...and it was pretty predictable tbh. I can't really find the antagonists memorable at all in this episode or show altogether. The battle itself also felt pretty underwhelming and story is very open ended sigh.... (well, the LN continues from here).

For an awesome ending, this episode lacked the entire class coming to the rescue and kicking zombie ass.
Or maybe that speech on justice actually making some twisted kind of sense.

Rokuaka started off really great with a lot of potential. Unfortunately, these last two arcs felt way too rushed to be enjoyable and the ending was pretty bland. 7/10 at the most

As many above have mentioned the ending was a bit lackluster. It wasn't able to match the humor and some of the cool battles from earlier episodes. It also didn't feel too much like a finale. Luckily, because overall I like the series, they left the door wide open for a second season.

This last episode really ruined it.. I was hoping for a super overpowered Glenn that would beat the hell outta everything but nope nope. Underwelming fight, some good plottwist with Leos tho.

Pretty lame ending overall from a very enjoyable anime.
Another one that most likely won't get a follow up season to fill plotholes tho. (The necromancer lady at the end staring at that entrance and project revive life).

Not bad, but not great either. But, the fight with 'final boss' somehow feels decent. Nothing surprises me, except when he said that Leos died. I'm glad for that tho.

Overall, this series is okay, i guess. If only this is a 2 cour anime, i'm sure it'll turn out better. For now, let's play the waiting game for the 2nd season. Is there enough source material to do that anyway?

Tell me, was the fight good or did glenn trashed him like the others? XD

It depends on what you mean by "good", but I feel it was pretty good. A final battle of the season could use some more awesome, though.

I liked the show overall, but the final was mere predictable and standard, nothing great.
As for the story... i dunno, they call the show "Akashic Records" but it's barely mentioned like 3 times in all the anime. Saw the novel sellings are doing good so there's hope for an s2 i guess.

Due to meaning of the words "Akashic Records", the title would have worked even if they never mentioned them.

Hebi_op said:
Oh, Sistine looked really HOT in that dress.

Why do people like this dress? I like her normal looks 100 times better.

QuynhNhu said:
I hope for season two because I really want to know what Akashik Records are.

Wikipedia has an article on that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akashic_records
Well, in this show they might be something entirely different, but they are probably a lot like that.

Also the real bad guy appears and dies in the same episode? WTF? I mean it would be nice to have some background on him.

The bad guy does not die - he escapes this time.

I like how the story had nothing to do with the show's title, it was more like a prequel for the real story lol. Overall it was rather rushed but enjoyable. I see good chances for a second season since this was among the better shows this season.

Even though the final episode was very anti-climactic, its one of the only good things I can watch on a Tuesday. I'm a simple man, so I wish it gets a second season.

Not a great ending by all means, but it leaves more chances to get season 2. Overall, I liked the anime, the main character made it one of the better ones. God I love this guy.

I agree, with all it's obvious problems and tropes it falls on, it doesn't do much different than other generic, 1-cour light novel adaptations. I'm guessing the ranking for the series will take a drop now that it's over, but I don't get why so many liked it.

This anime has much potential from episode 2-6, i give 9 but down to 8 until episode 10 and down to 7 in the last 2 episodes.

well. don't really hope for season 2, but i think i'll watch it if there's any.

I'm so glad it didn't turn into a "Oh we can't kill them, they're innocent" situation and Glenn just butchered them one after another! But they had to ruin it in the second half...

An anime with great potential and an awesome MC which unfortunately used too many cliché situations during it's runtime and stopped being enjoyable, whether that was on purpose or due to laziness I don't know. 4/10 for me.

Genderswapped Glenn? What the fuck?

Maybe a second season doesn't sounds that bad now...

Sistine looked pretty in her dress, but her hair looks awful. I laughed when I saw it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. But it eventually looked cute, once we get used to it. :P
Overall, I enjoyed the show so far, even though it really felt rushed in almost every aspect of it. I'd love seeing a second season, hopefully not as rushed as this one, though.

So let's break it down:
- Glenn still isn't know as a mass murderer/killing machine
- Sistine negates all the spells from one of the strongest military mages
- Celica is still not doing anything in this story except for wasting time
- Rumia is pretty much just an object, only worth something for her power, which she never uses and which is also really neglectable, but for some reason it's not
- The whole class magically shows up after every fight just ended

Oh right and Glenn decides not to kill the bad guy just because Sistine was tired.

I enjoyed this show and was hoping for a cliffhanger ending which wasn't rushed so this would be half decent.

Welp, it was fun for most of the episodes eventhough it was never a good show. it was entertaining

I actually enjoyed it despite the fact that whole show was really rushed. About 5 volumes adapted into 12 episodes,which is insane amount of material,so many things skipped due to time limitation,if only it has 24 episodes,goddammit Japan!

Recommend all to read LN from the beginning,fantranslation catching up right now or just wait until it get licensed,it worth it,especially arcs after this season starting to become more unique and interesting(Celica arc starts right after anime ends),so yeah,if they ever do season 2 I wish they include some skipped moments and stop rushing things so much,overall decent watch,7-8/10.

Well that was a somewhat underwhelming ending. It felt rushed as heck and filled with clichés. It's a shame because I had actually enjoyed this series at some points. The MC was pretty decent.

I can't call this an ending. It was very open and nothing was resolved. We need to wait for another season or read the novel


You named the reason for an open end like this yourself. Manga/LN get an anime adaption to push the sales of the original source. Thats why some popular anime don't get a second season.

Every magical high school, comedy ever. This show is bad and Glenn's character lost his novelty long ago. 4/10. If you like this type of shows be my guest but it is generic as hell. At least it did not have a harem. Bless LIDENFILMS they did something right about this generic meh of a show.

I really enjoyed this show. The plot was pretty predictable, and the ending was nothing special, but I still enjoyed it dammit. Glenn was an awesome main character. I really wish there were more episodes centered around the school setting, I believe those were the best, but they also had "serious" arcs that tied in with the main story. Apparently this 12 episode anime was being adapted from a huge amount of material. Hopefully we get a second, and a third season so it feels less rushed.

Yeah the ending left a lot to be desired, though given it's only the first part of the LN series, it was pretty much expected.

Here's hoping they'll give us a second season to explain all the mysteries yet unrevealed.

yeah I was surprised it had a 7.70 rating like deadman wonderland which I admit isnt as good as its manga but I still thought it was good and has a lower rating (but its prolly just my bias coming out lol)

I don't know how to feel about this series, I really liked the first two arcs but the other two felt so rushed, especially the last one and the ending wasn't satisfying at all.

Overall I enjoyed it but it had more potential.

I really liked this show but the ending was just so rushed! As someone earlier pointed out, this episode had to resolve a lot of plots in a very short amount of time. My biggest issues with this season are that outside of the fight with Jatice, there was next to no time spent going into Glenn's past. As dark as that story may be it's the contrast it offers that would've been nice to have here. Furthermore the way he saves Sistine was so pedestrian! I also wish we would've gotten more out of Celica as a character, I like the idea of a character with that much power existing as a measuring stick but she didn't do much of anything throughout the show! My worry with a 2nd season is that they'll just keep her in the dungeon and barely give that any time. Wanted to give this show a 7.5/10 in the start but I'd say its a 6.5/10 in the end.

With that, it's the last episode. Didn't like it that much was it was pretty predictable.

Sistine looked great with that outfit. If only was happy though. When Glenn crashed the wedding, I wanted him to say "she's mine".

Leos is dead was manipulated by the antagonist. (Can't remember if they mentioned his name) That scum had it coming anyways though.

Damn, Glenn crucified antagonist with a single punch. How did he do that.


We've been surprisingly blessed with two end cards in this episode.


Overall, 7/10. Enjoyed the first half and it had a good start. The last arc was rushed. The only downside was the fact the Rumia was always being captured and needed to be saved. It was quite repetitive. Glenn, in my opinion, is best protagonist in this season. Loved everything about this guy. Also, those uniforms.

That was about as good as every other typical tried and true LN adaptation. What I expected from this series was completely different from what I got and I'm amazed I stuck with it. Pretty sure the MC carried the whole thing surprisingly. The finale was just about as meh as I felt it was gonna be. At least the OST made it somewhat bearable. What was a about a 7/10 series wound up being a 5 for me.
Don't believe the hype.

Shitty ending. It was even good when teacher was fighting Hei-style with short swords, needles and such, but then waifu came, yadayada, be good guy, and all ended with stupid punch of justice like in every fucking anime in that genre. Not to mention, that because his waifu felt a little weak, he let escape the guy that changed half of town into zombie drug addicts, and is known from doing that in the past too. (slow clapping).

BTW Celica best grill.
