The official website for the television anime of Tarō Hitsuji's Roku de Nashi Majutsu Kōshi to Akashic Records (Akashic Records of bastard magic instructor) light novels posted the artists for the anime's theme songs and its second promotional video on Sunday.

Konomi Suzuki is performing the opening theme song "Blow out," and the CD singles for both theme songs go on sale on May 24. The series will premiere in April on the AT-X, Tokyo MX, MBS, TV Aichi, and BS11 channels. Every day between Sunday and Tuesday, the anime's website is posting a new Valentine illustration on its top page:

In the "action fantasy" story, Glenn is a part-time teacher at a magic school who is inclined to write "self-study" on the blackboard and then take a nap. One of his students, Sistine, gets angry and challenges him to a duel and he is easily defeated. However, when a terrible incident threatens the school, Glenn shows intense dedication to protecting his students.
