Junichirou Kagami is a young published physicist, a genius, and a hopeless otaku. At the mercy of YD, a self-diagnosed illness which causes him to only be able to do what he "Yearns to Do," Junichirou foregoes his scientific career to maintain and improve his anime blog. However, when he gets hired as a high school physics teacher; his sister Suzune, no longer willing to tolerate his NEET lifestyle, forces him to take the position.

Despite the fact that Junichirou has no motivation to teach the standard curriculum, he may still have something of value to teach his students outside of academics. With his class in tow, Junichirou embarks on an unlikely journey filled with life lessons such as acceptance of others, how to make lasting friends, and what it means to live a better life by doing what you yearn to do.

I had actually read a little bit of the Denpa Kyoushi manga before the anime was announced. I had only finished the first two volumes, but I was excited for the adaptation none the less. So, was my excitement well placed? Let's break it down and find out:

Story - 6
Kagami Junichirou is an otaku NEET with a bad case of YD, meaning that he can only do that which he Yearns to Do. His younger sister isn’t satisfied with that, so she forces him to take a job as a teacher. Unsurprisingly, Kagami is unenthusiastic about teaching, but if any of his students have an read more

You know, adaptations of a manga or LN are supposed to be good experiences. You get to see your favorite characters animated and voiced right before your eyes, and even watch a couple of your favorite scenes, which is always a little treat for fans of the show. However, there are times when you get those adaptions that you just...want to forget, permanently.

Story: The story of Denpa Kyoushi follows the tale of a man named Kagami Junichiro. As an otaku who is lazy as all hell, his policy in life is the concept of "YD" or "Yearn to do", where he only read more

Thanks to the series I now have a new acronym I use now.

Short Summary:
Kagami Junichirou was known as a physics genius when has was a teenager, even being published in "Nature".
However after college, he suddenly lost all interest in science and became a NEET. He devoted himself to his anime blog and collecting merchandises.
As somewhat of an excuse he claims to have a serious illness called "YD" which stands for "Yearn to Do" meaning that he can't do anything he doesn't want to do.

One of the best anime,which I yearn to watch. This anime totally changed my life and perspective of viewing the world.It inspires me to do something new.

This Anime is similar to Welcome TO NHK

Junichiro Kazami was known as a physics prodigy back when he was in high school, but now in his post-college years he's got a major case of YD – he claims he can only do something that he “yearns to do.”Junichiro Kagami, a NEET who used to be a theoretical physics prodigy (but only because he wanted to prove an Anywhere Door was possible), but would now rather spend his time fiddling read more
