Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records Episode 7: Obligatory beach episode

Obligatory content aside, this episode did a pretty good job of introducing Riel to the story. She had a lot of good moments in the episode as she was meeting the characters, but I feel like I'll have to wait to see how her character progresses. Her clinginess is a little sketchy so far. Plus, Riel's habit of creating swords to fight makes me wonder whether the opening scene was meant to suggest a future battle between her and Sistine. It seems like a good reason for Glenn to teach Sistine how to handle herself in close combat. Anyway, this episode does its job, I guess...

Strong start.

I wish that Glenn went more into teacher mode for this statement. Since nearly every magic duel is at a range, it's probably not obvious to Sistine how hand-to-hand combat can be utilized. Honestly, I was expecting a "strong body, strong mind" statement here, so maybe this is fine.

Good morning! Also, having Sistine call Glenn out on his tsundere-like behavior was a nice touch. She's one to talk...

Haha this was funnier than I expected. Riel's description of her relationship with Glenn was also really funny. I approve of this introduction. Also, there's no way I'm calling her Re=L unless the LN readers bully me into it.

I was honestly hoping that Riel would fail the exercise. I'm a little surprised that Sistine is this judgmental after what she's seen Glenn do, though.

That fork looks very much like a spatula. Am I the only one who thought that?

Wait...did he say ocean? You don't think that means...

This man sure has his priorities straight.

Yup, moving on.

Well, I'm certainly curious about Albert's warning about Riel. Based on her behavior, I wonder if her over-attachment to Glenn will backfire when he rejects her enough. But honestly, that's just the simple solution. Surely the reality is more complicated than that. I hope it doesn't have anything to do with her loose cannon nature...that would also be too easy.

Why doesn't Glenn finish this sentence?

Am I supposed to conclude that this is Albert?

Haha this preview related very well with the ending of the actual episode.

    Man, some of the animation was painful this episode. I think they spent all their budget animating Rumia's breasts D: Sisti looked great in her swimsuit though... damn, I wish Celica had been there.

    I didn't notice the spatula, but now that you mention it...

    I like how you're talking about the characters in the show being tsundere and finishing your first paragraph with the equivalent of "It's not like I like this show or anything!" :D
