On LiveChart and MyAnimeList, I saw Why the hell are you here, Teacher!? sitting comfortably within the top 10-15 most popular upcoming anime for this Spring season. It only puzzles me because I don’t recall this kind of show being that high up there. I can only assume it’s because people are thirsty for some real raunchy stuff after Domestic Girlfriend turned out to be a series that actually gave a damn about its plot and the characters involved in it.
Part of me actually admires the lengths this series will go to. You do get your usual “guy ‘accidentally’ gets into comprising situations with a woman” routine but those comprising situations include a scene where said guy is stuck in the bathroom stall where a woman is doing her business and a scene involving a suppository (I think you know which one I’m talking about…and who’s getting it). Oh and did I mention the woman is the boy’s teacher? I guess it’s a given considering the title but I figured I just throw that out there just in case.
Truth be told though, I don’t get the sex appeal here. I mean, I’m sure the toilet and a suppository are someone kink’s but they’re most certainly not mine so I’m left finding it more as shock humor than anything else. To be fair, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t find it a teeny bit funny. Perhaps not out of genuine enjoyment but these kinds of scenarios are so over the top that it’s hard not to let a snicker or two escape.
I’d talk about the characters but there really isn’t much to say about them. Ichiro (Ryouta Suzuki) seems like your usual ecchi protagonist; he’s functional for what role he’s meant to play but you’ve seen this kind of character before. Kojima-sensei (Sumire Uesaka) does stand out more though. I kind of like how she goes from a strict and commanding authority figure to a shy and flustered woman once the ecchi kicks in. The way Uesaka’s voice fluctuates between the two personas makes it even more amusing too.
Why the hell are you here, Teacher!? is what it is — outlandish but to call it obscene is a stretch. It’s clearly not meant to be taken seriously and, I don’t know, I’ve seen fan service far more uncomfortable than what this show has to offer. Me personally, this show just isn’t the kind of anime that I’d watch so this first episode is the end of the road. But hey, if this show seems like something you’d enjoy, go right ahead. There’s even an uncensored version if that tickles your fancy.
