*********************************************** This is a magic school manga about glean raders (not entirely sure if this is how you spell his name) a sloppy and lazy magic instructor at a prestigious magical academy ***********************************************   Story 7/10   *********************************************** The story was pretty solid but there was something I just can’t put my figure on it but I just couldn’t enjoy it and ended up dropping it at chapter 22, it felt like a chore to keep reading so bear that in mind. from what I could see they did the story well but it somehow felt lackluster how do I put it it kinda reminds me of Pokémon, when they solved something in a episode the next episode they’d be somewhere else solving a different thing (at least from what I remember of Pokémon) so in conclusion the arcs were connected but they felt episodic causing me to feel like there was no purpose but at the same time there was?. And lastly the character interactions were a bit edgy or maybe a bit more then edgy but in the end they were alright ***********************************************   Art 8/10   *********************************************** The art was great it wasn’t amazing but it was better then good *********************************************** Characters 6.5/10   *********************************************** The characters were great they actually felt real which feels pretty rare these days or maybe it’s the mangas I’m reading anyways, I digress they felt very different from each other they have goal’s, values and compelling backstory’s everything that makes them feel 3 dimensional though, I will say this some of the villains just feel like they were evil for the sake of being evil, and even the characters who are like kinda forced to be evil don’t compel me to feel sorry for them, which I probably should, so they don’t do that well and well we’re on the topic Rumina (I think that’s her name) doesn’t really feel like she has a personality which I didn’t noticed until I really thought about it because I wasn’t paying that much attention to her, but she just stops the arguments between MC and cat ear girl like that’s her only objective in this story other then her being the reason things happen, and even when they do add a sad moment with her mum  I suppose to show she does have a personality and feeling I couldn’t care. There feels like there’s character development but at the same time there doesn’t, it just kinda feels like they’re unveiling them instead of them actually changing and when the characters like villains for example have a “was I wrong” type thing before they die it just doesn’t work they don’t redeem them well ***********************************************   Overall 7.5/10   *********************************************** This is a solid read though I will admit it does have some flaws, but solid nonetheless if you’re looking for a manga about a MC who is a magic instructor who does other things other then being a magic instructor, like helping his students who have been kidnapped or etc (which is just Rumina) fighting a cult like organization then this is for you ***********************************************
