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.

Looking for a fun, easy-to-watch show for these Halloween days about ghosts, monsters and stuff? Then let me talk you about Hell Teacher Nube.

Hell Teacher Nube is a supernatural/yokai episodic “monster of the week” show from the mid-90s that is flying under the radar of most anime fans nowadays since it was never really a hit in the first place back then, and as most of the titles that fail to generate a solid initial impact, it couldn’t avoid the fate of being forgotten in time. Debuting in the same year Neon Genesis Evangelion sent bittersweet shockwaves with its controversial last 2 episodes, Rurouni Kenshin read more

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.

Jigoku Sensei Nabe. I mean Nube.

This is a fairly faithful adaptation of manga, which, unfortunately, skips several manga chapters, and tones down material quite a lot (I suppose to make it suitable for TV). Due to doning down of material it is also weaker than manga counterpart.

It is a very solid/quality show, which is, unfortunately not outstanding. It has couple of amazing episodes, and few great moments, but number of those is fairly small. Out of 49 episodes maybe 5 were truly memorable. The rest is just alright.

Differences compared to manga: some of the brutal/gory moments from manga are toned down, changed read more
