There's a new teacher in town—Spelunker! This unusual man is anything but a typical instructor, giving speeches about traffic safety to the students, reacting strangely to a humidifier, and enjoying lunch— albeit with ample condiment mishaps. With such a bizarre new role model to learn from, Spelunker's students will never be the same!

OK, first of all, I could not help but to notice the number of people who actually finished this half hour OVA (500 and something). The 8 guys or chicks who scored this with a 10 must have never watch a single comedy show, anime or not, in their short pre-teen lifes.

Spelunker Sensei does not deserve such a note, neither a big review, so I'm gonna be short:

Spelunker Sensei is a failed OVA containing 30 minutes of short jokes in the traditional random anime style. The characters are poor, the budget surely did not help in the art and sound department, and the premise, which read more

This is going to be my first review, and I'll tell you now that it aint going to be a positive one.

Unless you've seen every legit anime you've got access to, or, like me, had an overtake of curiosity from the number of users who've watched this; I don't see ANY reason why someone would waste 30 precious minutes of their time watching this.

I liked the mini divisions of narration, but only the fact it incorporates that idea. It took several minutes for me to realise it was suppose to be comedy - SUPPOSED, and a couple more to realise I read more

Both are absurd, have despair, and the main character is a sensei.
Delivering comedy poking fun at the very games they're based on, these two series give a few chuckles to fans and newbies to either series. This is delivered in short quick bursts based around joke repetition and variation, so good for casual viewing.
In both anime, the main character "dies" a lot as comedy, though Dokuro is more graphic about it.
