SynopsisKagami Junichirou was known as a physics genius when he was a teenager, and he was even published in "Nature." However, after college, he suddenly lost all interest in science. As a NEET, he's devoted himself to his anime blog and nerdy collecting habits. He claims he has a serious illness called "I can't do anything I don't want to do." Desperate to get him to do something with his life, his little sister manages to get him a job teaching physics at his old high school. He's certainly an unconventional teacher, but he becomes fairly popular with the students. After helping a girl who's being ruthlessly bullied, Kagami finds that he actually likes teaching. Will he continue his career as a weird teacher? Will he go back into physics? Or will he end up back where he started?
'Denpa Kyoushi' or in English 'He is a Ultimate Teacher' is essentially the love child between Great Teacher Onizuka, The World God Only Knows and even Steins;Gate later on.
Whilst it borrows many themes from existing franchises and mixes them all together, it manages to turn into something unique and interesting in the process.
The manga revolves around the young Junichirou Kagami, who is a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) in the beginning of the story.
Kagami is an avid anime and manga fan and has a blog dedicated to is hobbies.
As a teenager, he was a physics genius and even had a thesis published in 'Nature', a renown science magazine in the Denpa Kyoushi universe.
However, after college he has lost all interest in Science and Physics, and decided to spend his days as an Otaku NEET, updating his anime & manga blog regularly.
After the short introduction, his sister, Suzune, decides to change his current NEET status, and manages to find him a job as a high school teacher.
Kagami hesitates at first, but after a short experience with teaching, he found that he actually likes this new profession.
At the beginning each arc is composed of Kagami helping different students of his.
One arc has to do with bullying, another arc is about a student manga artist, another arc is about students in maid uniforms, another arc is about soccer and another arc is about a girl with a unique 'anime'-like voice that does not speak and so on.
In the beginning, in each arc, Kagami develops more and more as a character, and changes the lives of his students around him.
Sometimes the story is slice-of-life-ish, sometimes it's comedy, sometimes it's drama, sometimes it's about Kagami's anime and manga hobbies and sometimes it's just about Kagami being plain awesome.
Later on the story takes an interesting turn, and becomes something different than a typical 'GTO'-like Otaku teacher story, but still remains true to the roots of the beginning of the story.
The art is the weakest point of Denpa Kyoushi. The art is most of the time inconsistent. However, there are some very beautifully drawn color spreads and good drawings.
The character designs are also inconsistent, and there are many 'chibi'-like drawings that make the manga's mood feel more lighthearted.
Kagami is a unique mix of Keima from TWGOK (Otaku), and Onizuka from GTO (Teacher).
The mangaka has truly made him shine in his different quests of helping students and being funny, badass and cool, just like Onizuka from GTO.
The are many different characters showing up in the arcs, but in the end they are all made to make Kagami develop more and more, and themselves being developed too in the process.
Kagami is an Otaku, and it has some impact on the story. Many times he'll mention his beloved anime and manga, and compare real life situations to his beloved hobby.
His sister Suzune shows up from time to time to give advices, to help, and sometimes she'll just be cute and 'moe'.
If you watched/read and enjoyed GTO, TWGOK and even Steins;Gate you can enjoy this manga even more. While the manga is Shounen, it sometimes caters to Seinen crowds.
I highly recommend reading Denpa Kyoushi. I really hope it will have an anime adaptation someday in the future, as it is extremely popular and won't get axed anytime soon. I'd prefer that the anime adaptation will be long running just like the manga, and be picked up by a good studio that knows what he's doing.
Thanks for reading!

Hello, I will start. (first review sorry and I am not English speaker.)
First when I found this by chance I am hesitant to read this because it seems not so interesting. However, when I read the chapter one I just can't stop continuing because it becomes interesting. It's just like "don't judge book by it's cover."
If you are reading it, the story has arc and it really is exciting. The development was good, at least for me. To be honest I don't like the otaku story so much but this is different, the Physics guys was awesome and interesting.
To be honest, I'm not really fond of the art but it still good atmosphere when reading.
All of the character has their own uniqueness and it makes it awesome. They are all interesting especially the protagonist.
When reading I can't help but to laugh, it really was a good laugh.
Both these serialisations follow male otaku who are "employed" to use their specialised knowledge to help others. They mostly help female characters, which subsequently result in a harem.
It's like a crossover of Kaminomi with GTO (or other awesome-teacher manga/anime). And the execution was awesome!
Main character is a genius otaku that only pay attention to his hobby, but they are forced to do another thing. In this task they help people, mainly girls, and the girls fall in love with the main character.
Similar otaku protagonists who are anime/eroge fanatics. In both manga, the protagonist helps others around him by solving their problems using game tactics.
super otaku helping girls and getting his own harem
Both mangas are about a genius otaku in school (great grades but extremely addicted to games(Keima) or anime (Kagami)).
Keima still is student and Kagami became teacher.
They are both entertaining and funny ^^
Denpa Kyoushi is literally The world god only knows + Great teacher onizuka
Amazing Romance, Protagonist does a thing for the love victimss and captures their heart, Every Arc has another girl to conquer
Both male protagonist are otaku geeks.
Both have a same goal; conquer what they need to (Keima conquer girls) and (Kagami conquer students with problems. they are quite well-known in internet for otakus.
Both mangas are top 100 in mangafox.com
Both lead male protagonist have at least 1 side assistant.
Denpa Kyoushi is like GTO for the 21. century. Both Onizuka and Kagami help students in their own way, Kagami using that brilliant brain of his and Onizuka pulling through with sheer strength and willpower.
Has the similar teacher helping students by different means but this one is an anime lover and GTO is a bike gang leader.
Well there both just about a guy who helps out unwilling students with their problems through... well... let's just say unorthodox methods.
although they're very similar, they have many differences including the fact that Kagami does not want to be a teacher while its Onizuka's life dream, and also GTO has a lot more ecchi stuff in it. If you liked GTO you would probably like denpa kyoushi...
Both have teachers with a unique style of education which leads to great disasters and funny moments.And for those who might care there is a bit of romantic subplot.
Both are very similar. The only difference is one teacher is an otaku while the other is a gangster.
