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

When it comes to a bad piece of media, whether it be a movie, TV show, music, or anime, the worst thing is a bad comedy. When it comes to every other genre, there is at least something to enjoy or appreciate, like it's atmosphere, technical quality, soundtrack, maybe a great performance or two, or it's potential. With a comedy, it relies entirely on it's jokes, and when it's jokes aren't funny, it has absolutely nothing to go on. And there isn't a point in pointing out the good parts of a comedy when the entire reason you're there is terrible. That's where Spelunker Sensei read more

Spelunker Sensei (or Spelunker is a Teacher) is a 30 minute comedy OVA following the misadventures of a teacher who is a Spelunker and those around him. The idea is based on the video game Spelunker which is a rogue-like game about exploring caves and obtaining treasure. A more modern game based on the same idea is Spelunky, which has some of the same features of cave exploration and easy death.

The OVA is made up of numerous short gags, mostly focused on the fact that Spelunker Sensei can die from seemingly minor events. Sometimes the same set up is used multiple times with a read more
