Kadokawa began streaming the third promotional video on Friday for the television anime of Tarō Hitsuji's Roku de Nashi Majutsu Kōshi to Akashic Records (Akashic Records of bastard magic instructor) light novels. The video previews the Konomi Suzuki's opening theme song "Blow out."

The video also reveals that the anime will premiere on AT-X on April 4 at 8:30 p.m., before airing later that evening on Tokyo MX, MBS, and TV Aichi. The series will then air on April 5 on BS11.

The characters Sistine (as voiced by Akane Fujita), Rumia (Yume Miyamoto), and Re-L (Ari Ozawa) are performing the ending theme song "Precious You☆."

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.
