I actually watched this anime a few years ago, when I was still in primary. This was when I started watching anime. Hell Teacher Nube, as a starting point is not bad. One of the best animes of it's time, I say.

Basically, it's a school story with all the weird and scary things you wish could happen to you in a real school, that is, if you're into ghosts and that kind of stuff.

Hell Teacher Nube is an episodic horror anime which blends with comedy, some action & the occasional episodes making you feel fuzzy inside.

Nube is an elementary school teacher who has an Oni sealed into his left hand. During his role as a teacher, he develops a great relationship with his students vowing to always protect them from danger. This is constantly proven when his precious students are attacked by ghosts, yokai, & other supernatural demons. While the series is episodic, it later adds more characters such as Yukime the snow demon & Tamamo a fox sorcerer which increases the quality of the anime.
