Mika Suzuki is a new teacher at Okitsu High School, although since she is the height of a child and has a babyish face the students have trouble taking her seriously. Based on a manga by Tamami Momose, this high school story abandons all attempt at plot and makes the interaction between Mika and her pupils the main event, with Mika very definitely the lovable loser of the group. Her biggest problem is that one of her pupils, the overdeveloped Kitagawa, is fixated on small women. Classroom discipline is also compromised by her inability to stop pupil Watabe drawing manga-mostly because Teacher wants to see how the story ends. Meanwhile class dreamboy Seki is busy crossdressing and generally being flamboyant. There is an interesting psychological point buried in this and other classroom anime, made by the products of one of the most regulated and rigid education systems in the world, who view schooldays through rose-colored glasses with comedy lenses as havens of fun and individuality presided over by wackily sympathetic teachers. Sadly some of the nuances and references will be lost on non-Japanese speaking audiences, since gags are not just visual but flashed up in text. The limited animation is enlivened with graphic techniques like tone, speedlines, and sparkle-dots from its manga roots, reversing the process of lifting moving picture techniques into comics that made Osamu Tezuka a manga superstar six decades earlier. Compare to Azumanga Daioh and Pani Poni Dash.
