Under the threat of being disowned, Mafuyu Kurosaki—an ex-delinquent with a strong sense of justice, exceptional fighting skills, and a very dense head—has to start a new life as a proper citizen and student at Midorigaoka Academy. Apart from adapting to a new school, Mafuyu also has to get used to living alone as the dorms are full. Therefore, she starts a new chapter in her life with limited funds, the inability to make even a cup of instant noodles, and a big dream of becoming "an ultra-shiny female high school student."
This dream, however, is quite hard to fulfill since Mafuyu's sense of style is uncouth, and troubles tend to find her no matter how hard she tries to avoid them. The path to her dreams is made more difficult because of Takaomi Saeki, her unordinary homeroom teacher with barely legal teaching methods, and her delinquent classmate Kaori Hayasaka, who becomes her first new friend.
Oresama Teacher follows Mafuyu's adventure full of hilarious situations, ridiculous misunderstandings, and exciting action sequences, all while she still tries to become a normal feminine girl.
Let me just say this about Oresama Teacher - don't read it if you're in a library. Don't read it at one am when you're supposed to be in bed. Don't read it in the computer lab during class.
No. If you're going to read Oresama Teacher, do it somewhere secluded where you can laugh your ass off like an idiot without getting in trouble.
Although the plot can sometimes feel just a wee bit confused and you sometimes want to hit yourself at how dense the characters (really just one) can be, this is definitely not a manga you want to miss reading.
Everything about Oresama Teacher is just so unexpectedly and unpredictably funny that I can't stop myself from laughing even now.
Sadistic teachers, masochistic delinquents, lame disguises, ridiculous misunderstandings - it has it all, and all of it is knee-slapping, floor banging, gut bustingly hilarious.
Not only that, but the characters are endearing and likeable, even the "bad guys." They refuse to be just pawns in a slapstick comedy, and rightly so, because when you aren't crying with laughter, you're rooting for the characters as they develop and go about their lives.
So, make sure no one's around to see you snorting milk out of your nose and put on a diaper (or risk pissing in your favorite undies). Oresama Teacher is one hell of a ride, and it's definitely worth the dry cleaning bill.
Is this really the typical shoujo manga where a spineless heroine is being courted by 7 delinquents? NO.
This is a hilarious shoujo manga that often mistakes itself for a shounen with all the fighting bosses and such. When I read the first chapter I was like 'Meh. Good, but I feel like I've read this before'. I warn you: Do not be fooled.
Since then, I have been laughing my head off and the strange situations the lead girl gets herself into. The art is quite good, complementing the story well. The character interactions are all very amusing too, and do serve somewhat to develop character.
in all, this manga is extremely fun and entertaining. It may not have an intelligent plotline, but that's because it doesn't need to. Its charming just the way it is.
There are a lot of words I could use to describe this but only one word gives it justice, it is hilarious!
I love shojo manga. Imagine my surprise when I start reading this and there’s no mushiness or love triangle but I love it!.
Sure, she’s a girl and wants love but she’s not crazily looking for a boyfriend, she’s more outside fighting crime. Her focus is "love and peace" and I ma sure if Sailor Moon would have been a little bit like our heroine here she would have had double the fans. Even if a romance develops, which it can given
the way the mangaka left doors open for it, I have a feeling it won't be your typical romance seeing as she's not your typical hero.
Even though she is small, it works for her, she is amazing at fighting, taught by the best at the time and hates bullying and unfairness. The only drama or hair pulling you will see in this manga is when she is trying to untangle her hair after a fight.
The story captivates you, be it with their jokes, art or characters. You'll see Mafuyu disguise herself and fight crime and it being ridiculous that no one guesses who she is, even though it is obvious. There really isn't any specific plot, this is just the life f Maufy trying to be normal but getting caught in a whirlwind of trouble and fighting.
The moment you flip a page you meet Mafuyu, a delinquent who get’s caught doing deliquent things and being on her last strike she gets kicked out of her school. She has an amazing attitude and is loyal to the core and chivalrous. Not many girls can you say that about. She isn’t afraid of anyone, mainly due to a bunny incident that changed her life (see chapter 2). She is a great protagonist not in a serious way, this is by no means a serious or romantic manga. And that’s what makes it great
Hayasaka just adds to the story, he is a delinquent himself, no past story so far, but you could sense he has one. He, contrary to popular belief, does not like fighting but feels like he has to. He was labeled unapproachable by other students in the school but Mafuyu broke down his barreir without him knowing it. No really he hasn’t noticed they are friends. Can you say dense? Not many people know this because they don’t really talk to him but..he’s an idiot, I say that with love.
Saeki Takaomi is the teacher and obvious from the end of the first chapter that he’s her old friend from when she was little. He’s still a mystery and his character is a little sketchy, with the whole bet thing. And in the words of Mafuyu, “why would a delinquent become a teacher?” He’s always annoying Mafuyu but helping her when she needs it.
The art was good. Mafuyu does make the funniest expressions, along with Hayasaka. At the beginning when the teacher was first introduced they made him look huge next to Mafuyu but later on it changed, I guess Mafuyu grew… The art wasn't meant to be beautiful instead it's what gave the manga that extra push to hilarious. Though the art is important to the story since it adds the lol factor, the characters and storyline are what make this manga hilarious, IMO.
To start off Im gonna say Oresama Teacher is NOT a manga you want to be reading in public unless you like to make a fool of yourself in front of other people because trust me any sane person would be laughing so hard everyone will think you're crazy!!!
It starts off with a simple story line; A delinquent girl is expelled and when shes going to a new school decides she wants to be a, let me quote, "ultra shiny, super feminine high school student!" of course her plans dont go the way she wants them too... She meets a person she used to
know in the past she rather not meet again. Her childhood neighbour. As the story progresses, and I do not want to spoil it for you, more elements come into play and the manga gets more interesting and fun to read!!! Though there are some little cliches the story is entertaining and the humour is very well executed that as mentioned before will leave you cracking up laughing all the time. But what I think puts the icing on the cake for this manga is the Art and the characters.
Im not an expert on drawing but the art in Oresama teacher is soooo good and crisp!!! Characters expressions are done very well and there bodies look realistic... well there a little skinny but still the art is beautiful!!! Any fan of good art should DEFINITELY read this!!!
You know how 99%... no let me make that 99.9% of Shoujo heroines are cry babies or always let the guy do the work... Yeah well thats not true here!!! Mafuyu the heroine can kick ass and do it in style!!! Though she wants to leave fighting behind her she just cant help getting caught up in all this... So she does the second best thing and makes up some secret identities... And oh god they are funny and awesome!!! One where she wears a rabbit mask.. and one where she cross dresses as a guy!!! The main guy Saeki is extremely strong though... and kinda mysterious~ You find out more about him as the manga progresses and hes HOT lol :P Hayasaka who becomes Mafuyus best friend (kind of) is hilarious and always dodging her affection but you can tell he cares for her. You also dont know his first name... we only know" Hayasaka" which must be his family name~here are many other Supporting characters that make the manga good though but it would take me forever to descrobe them all~ Lets just say theres a masochistic gangster, a fishy ninja and a gangster who likes cute things secretly to name a few!!!
The most funniest manga I've ever read mixed in with just a little bit of romance which is what I love its definitely an enjoyable read!!! Theres some good plot twists, unique characters and great art any shoujo manga reader would love it!!!
The only reason Oresama Teacher hasn't gotten a 10 is because its still ongoing and to get a perfect score from me I usually needs a great ending!!! So far though its going great and is already in my top 5 mangas!!! Everything about the manga is as I have mentioned previously hilarious and fun!!!
