The girls of Momotsuki Academy's Class 1-C are starting their tenth-grade year with a brand-new instructor. The good news? The teacher is an MIT grad. The bad news? She's only 11 years old! So, while Becky Miyamoto may be an intellectual titan, this child prodigy is painfully ill-equipped to deal with the group of temperamental teens—and idiotic aliens—that await her instructions!

Pani Poni Dash is a very light hearted and hilarious slice of life comedy thats fun for the whole family to enjoy.

Pani Poni Dash is one of those shows, and that, coupled with the quote above, ought to be all I really ...
