Based on the light novel series written by Shotaro Mizuki, and art by Souichi Ito, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimo is a fun new magical, romance and action series that has eight light novels to draw from and a recent manga adaptation as well. With the anime production being done by ARtland, it's a show that has a rather good look with a lot of detail, solid character designs and a real sense of fanservice and CG work that plays out well across this first opening episode. Like any show that's essentially a harem show of sorts, we get a number of girls introduced in the first episode but they're kept more to the background towards the end which is nice.
The series revolves around a new transfer student to the Constant Magic Academy named Akuto Sai. Akuto's a rarity in that few people transfer between such schools but there are some that are doing so this year. Akuto has a lot of luck on his arrival, after an accidental beating, in that he meets another student named Junko Hattori. Junko's a bright, beautiful and athletic student there who takes her role seriously. She's a part of the Suhara religion and she ends up feeling close to Akuto from the start and forms a bond with him that they both feel right about. Her feelings stem largely from Akuto's stated goal of becoming a Grand Priest in the future. This is the hardest of professions to choose because of what it is involved in the training and she sees that as something to definitely reward and to try and help and be part of.
