One day, Kei Kusanagi notices a strange glowing woman by the lake. He discovers that the woman is actually an alien officer from the Galaxy Federation named Mizuho Kazami, and even more shocking—she's also his teacher! In spite of this setback, he and his teacher gradually get to know each other and a romance blossoms between them. However, soon enough, the principal of the school finds out about their relationship. The solution? Get married!

Together, the newlyweds must keep their marriage a secret, not only from Kei's high school friends, but also the Galaxy Federation. Onegai☆Teacher is the fragile but comedic love story of an alien and her student.

this anime is exactly one of those ideas that I talked about. this anime has a great base story but unfortunately, it described in wrong way and that's a thing will disappoint you from a story.
there is something about stories in anime that always annoys me that there are two female characters or more that get in love with an innocent guy.
in my opinion, there was no need of Herikawa, Koishi.
About OST ( that I always said it's so important for an anime ) there was one ...

This is a priority one!

I think that is about the only thing I'm going to remember about this show.

The characters are weak and poorly developed, though I have to give a little lot of credit to breaking from the usual high school celebrations and festivals and whatnot. That being said, I would have taken them on repeat in this case. I was going to drop ...
