Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records Episode 11: Failure

Click here to check this post out on my personal website.

Yeesh…this week’s episode was really pushing Leos as this terrible antagonist. I wonder if it was pushed a little too hard. The combination of the reference to Angel Dust in this episode and the focus on the bags under Leos’s eyes makes me wonder if the drug and Leos’s behavior are supposed to be linked. If not, Leos seems like a pretty boring bad guy who wants to secure a noble position by marrying Sistine. Either way, I guess next week is the finale. Given the strange ending of this week’s episode, I wonder how Glenn will make it back to save Sistine. Plus, don’t the Researchers of Divine Wisdom need to do something to Rumia before this arc ends?

I get that this is a petty battle between Glenn and Leos, but I would expect a good teacher to emphasize what the students can do to contribute to victory.

That’s a silly illusion, Sistine. There’s no way Glenn would buy such a fancy ring.

This is some seriously high-level strategy…

It feels like Riel would be capable of winning this entire battle herself.

Classic Glenn. This battle reminds me of a quote a friend of mine used to say: “Always cheat. Always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.”

Guys, I already don’t like this guy. You don’t need to continue to convince me. Leos is starting to sound childish.

Riel looks very comfortable down ther- err…I mean, there’s some conversation going on about Sistine and Glenn right now. I’m definitely paying attention! Also, that transition showing the tour guide dude from the last arc and Leos wasn’t the most subtle thing in the world.

If you think about it, Leos is the one who’s truly attempting to marry into money.

She knows!

Glenn goes through these possible explanations for his actions, and I’m surprised he doesn’t try to link Sistine’s dream with his own dream to become a mage of justice. That seems like the simplest explanation. Maybe he refuses to admit that his dream is still alive.

I’m surprised that Glenn loses this fight. I wonder if it’s supposed to be a refutation of his earlier statement that Leos is purely focused on research.

Well, I wasn’t expecting that.

Phew…I was worried that they were actually doing a real preview.

  1. Glenn disappearing was a bit unexpected. Might be nice if it stayed that way and Sistine and Rumia just used what they knew to actually get themselves out of trouble (maybe backed by Riel). Of course that would kind of fly in the face of the title of the story.
