This is an interesting series to review. First because I think a lot of people are going to read the summery of this show and dismiss it right away without even giving it a try and that is really a shame. As far as romances go this is one of the more satisfying series I have watched.

Let’s face it that for a large number of people the student teacher romance that is the core of this show is probably going to offend or at the least make people feel a little uncomfortable. With so many high profile real life cases, this read more

I saw " Ano Natsu de Matteru" long before watching this anime, and noticed how there were a lot of similarities. Then after searching online, found out they where made by the same person.

An alien comes to Earth for surveilence. A human, Kei, sees her land and is immediately involved with her. Next day at school, she shows up in Kei's class as their new teacher. Eventually, after the usual antics, they end up getting locked in a storage closet and talking about the previous night. Kei agrees to keep her secret, and BAM!! The school principal shows up and is questioning them. Cause, read more

Onegai Teacher is a love story about a forbidden relationship between a teacher and her student. Their relationship starts out as a cover up, but grows into something much deeper and meaningful. There is a fair share of comedic moments, twists, and misunderstandings, but this story is essentially about their marriage: its highs and lows, happy and sad moments, fights and makeups.

It is a very short series, only 12 episodes long, so there is no elaborate plot. The alien aspect does not even play that big of a role. They are merely devices used to create obstacles in their read more

Here is a short review from me on this beautiful series called Onegai Sensei.

I would like to start with the story. I say it is a 9. The story is about the romance a person with a disease that puts him into a near dead state for random period of time and an older women who is his teacher and an alien. Quite interesting, isn't it? Although I loved the story, one thing I felt about it was that it could have been a little more detailed. The story is slightly rushed, I would say. It could have been more intriguing is some parts were read more

Anime: Ano Natsu de Matteru
Until finishing Ano Natsu, I had thought the OBVIOUS similarities between the two were nothing more than examples of the anime industry's lack of originality. But it turns out they were written by the same person, with Ano Natsu linking into Onegai Teacher at the very end. So, it wasn't theft: it was just the writer being lazy. Glad that's clear, now.

Two alien Mary Sues come from space. They have the same basic character designs. One becomes a teacher; one becomes a student. They fall in love with scrawny, four-eyed midgets. There's drama.

Anime: To LOVE-Ru
Both are about attractive female aliens that invade a males house and go to school. They both have to marry the male, against the male's wishes. The plots are practically the same, but I will not say in which cases because my reasons are spoilers.

Same funny story about a guy who gets visited by a women..same slightly sexual humor as well. The only difference is that in ah my goddess the women are goddesses but in onegai they're aliens.

premise of force marriage, with some very well put together comedy and entertaining plot. They both are also comedy/ supernatural (aliens and mermaids) genre.

Anime: Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii

Both have the same cougar to tadpole kind of relationship.

Both cougars have special powers, and the tadpoles is just an ordinary boy.

Both have the same fantasy and romance genre.


One has an extra sci-fi genre while the other has an extra magic genre.

The boy in one anime is just an ordinary high-school student with a bad case of narcolepsy, while the boy in another anime is a bratty ruler.

The cougar in one anime really does maintain a romantic relationship with her tadpole, while the cougar in another anime acts like a  read more
