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.

The premise behind the events in Onegai Teacher is pretty absurd. Oh, the alien side of things is OK, if fairly standard. There's nothing much to either endorse or complain about that. But I could not suspend my disbelief for any decent amount of time over Kei's illness, it was just soo silly. I don't like the 'mystery illness' plot device as a whole because it always seems so very contrived, and Kei's illness has convenience and contrivity coming out the ...

"Onegai Teacher" is a series I avoided watching for a quite a while despite its popularity at the time I was getting into anime.

And the romance in "Onegai Teacher" isn't ...
