Back To School From A Teachers Point of View?!
September is upon us again and the promise of endless text books and studying surely is making all of you, who are still studying, super excited. Even though there will be a lot of work and then some extra curricular activities, you can still have some fun. Every year there’s that one teacher that’s somehow special or even weird. Here are the five sensei to check out and follow their example……or not, it’s up to you.
Great Teacher Onizuka
If you’re on the other side of the whiteboard or want to be, then don’t watch Great Teacher Onizuka. Or maybe do. It’s funny as hell, but I don’t encourage you to repeat the teacher’s behavior. It’s an older anime that centers around Onizuka, a former gang member who found a new calling. He really wants to become a teacher, but his purposes are not all that pure. Actually, he’s trying to meet sexy underaged high school girls. Basically a hentai in disguise. Anyway, if you want to see a different perspective on school life – this is it.
Free! and Miho Amakata
This anime isn’t really known for their teachers, but there’s one person here that I really have to mention! Miss Miho Amakata is almost a perfect representative of teachers in high school. While she tries to hide what she did before getting her current job at Haru-chan’s high school, she is still thinking of what’s best for her students. Being really sweet and always having a quote at hand (even when no one asked for it) makes her approachable. Her gentle and supporting nature always persuades others to do what she asked for.
Kill la Kill and Aikurou Mikisugi
Yeah, about this guy… At first he seems like a boring history teacher, but later reveals he has some hidden knowledge as well. For those of you who have seen the anime, you already know he has a tendency to get shirtless a lot.. or even almost naked. With the glowing nipples he really doesn’t look like a good example of a teacher. Anyway, don’t follow his footsteps, please. His intentions aren’t bad but his methods are pretty inappropriate. Also, try not to beat your students!
Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor and Glenn Radars
A super young teacher at only nineteen finds himself at Alzano Imperial Magic Academy. He really doesn’t want to be there, so he tries to sabotage his classes and input as little effort as possible. Of course, he has a secret past that gets revealed eventually, but that’s not why I wanted to include him in this post. Being a selfish, lazy ass with a good-natured and protective heart shows even a douche can be something more than just that. However, he is way too touchy with his not so very clothed female students. First episode of the anime was a cringe fest if you ask me and being punished for his wandering hands didn’t really help much.
Another and Mikami-sensei
Another is definitely an anime that I wouldn’t recommend to the faint hearted. Or if you don’t want to get scared of school and teachers more than you already are. Mikami-sensei is an example of a teacher who tried to do her best to keep her students safe, but sort of failed. Her warm-nature made her loved by the students, but the dark secret she kept was revealed in the end and I can’t imagine many wanting such a teacher near their kids.
Follow the footsteps or not?
I certainly hope the new school year will treat you well, students and teachers alike. With teachers like these it’s best to be careful, they might not be what they seem at first. Let them work in your best interest and encourage them. Take it especially easy on the young or new teachers, they will need you kids to be nice to them! New or old, they should never be too touchy towards you or try to hit on you… or fight you. As for teachers: include more anime in your classes! Screenshots or videos can serve as a great medium to talk about subjects and they will definitely make you look more cool! Just don’t be like Glenn or Onizuka, those two like to play dumb too much.
Have a great start of a new school year!
