If you could replace your current teachers with anime characters, would you?
For this “Back to School Specials” list, I am going to discuss some anime characters you would want as teachers (that are not necessarily certified and professional). The structure of my list is by subjects based on a typical high school student’s schedule in the US.
So I know, Leaveit2Me, posted an article entitled, “Top 10 ‘Sensei’ Characters in Anime.” If you didn’t know that, you should go check it out after reading this post.
Instructor: Inaho Kaizuka (ALDNOAH.ZERO)
Both, Keatle and Crimson, picked Inaho as a math teacher because he is an excellent tactician with great problem solving skills and can do complex calculations in his head.
Instructor: Nozomu Itoshiki (Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei)
Nozomu Itoshiki is a pessimist, and is based on the main character of Dazai Osamu’s No Longer Human. Nozomu’s attitude towards life can help him interpret and analyze some well-known western and eastern literary classics such as William Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Masuji Ibuse’s Black Rain (黒い雨).
Instructor: Franken Stein (Soul Eater)
Zaktaku picked Franken Stein. He is a “mad scientist,” but his intelligence, natural curiosity, and passion for the sciences make him a prime candidate for a biology teacher.
Instructor: Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Roy Mustang lives in a country, where the government is under militarism and right-wing dictatorship. However, Mustang has his own vision of how government should be structured and his own political ideals. So, it would be interesting to see him teach a government class.
Subject: Culinary Arts/Home Economics
Instructor: Souma Yukihira (Shokugeki no Soma)
A good teacher shares his or her passion for a subject to his or her students. I can see Souma Yukihira sharing his love of cooking to his students. Also, who wouldn’t want to be the next Gordon Ramsay?
Subject: Physical Education
Instructor: Kakashi Hatake (Naruto)
Yasumori picked Kakashi for a physical education teacher. I agree with him because in my opinion, Kakashi is like the greatest ninja that ever lived. I mean, imagine a class where he teaches you ninjutsu. That would be an awesome physical education course.
These are just some anime characters that I think would be great teachers for certain subjects. Thanks for reading!
