Lecture I: "The Unmotivated Bastard" (やる気のないロクでなし, Yaruki no Nai Roku de Nashi) is the first episode of the Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor anime series.
Sistine Fibel and Rumia Tingel are students at the prestigious Alzano Imperial Magic Academy, where their instructor has recently resigned, and a substitute has been assigned to take his place. To Sistine's disappointment, her substitute teacher is late on the first day. Halfway through class, he finally arrives, introducing himself as Glenn Radars. Unfortunately for the students, Glenn turns out to be completely uninterested in teaching and declares every class period a self-study session. In her frustration, Sistine challenges Glenn to a duel.
