Hibiki is unemployed, unmotivated, and out of luck. But it seems his luck just might change: a nearby school is looking for qualified instructors, but there's a catch.. females only! With rent looming around the corner and the landlord threatening to cook the dog if you don't pay up, what's a guy to do? Become a woman, of course. Watch Hibiki as he blunders his way through embarassing situations, under the close scrutiny of the headmaster's gaze and his female students' admiration.
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Can't say I liked either series, but both involve copious amounts of perverse ecchiness. Peeping toms, panty shots, and lots of innuendo can be found in each series. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.
Is it is possible to lead the yakuza and be a high school teacher at the same time? Kuniko has always dreamed of being a teacher, but as the heir of the Oedo Group it isn't easy to do. Her task is made even more difficult because her school would fire her if they found out about her criminal activities.She has to pretend to be an ordinary teacher while fighting off rival yakuza, winning the respect of delinquent students and keeping her family business away from the school. This becomes even harder when her smartest and most curious student begins to find her very... "interesting".
I My Me! Strawberry Eggs and Gokusen share a kinship on many levels, of course the most obvious being that the main protagonist in each is an aspiring teacher who has something to hide. From there the plots diverge quite a bit, but both make great use of the threat of being caught out in the great lie that makes it possible for the protagonist to continue on with their dream. With a similar sense of humor, both of these series are capable of creating a laugh as well as a moment of heartwarming satisfaction.
If you liked Gokusen, or the other way around, you will like the other. Both have teachers, that will do anything for their students. They both get into Sensei/student relationships (not much romantic, as to like getting to know each one.) Both of the teachers have something very important to hide, and if they get caught it will hinder/destroy their teaching career. They both have tons of comedy, and take place in a school setting.
They're both, as mentioned before, about teachers who are hiding thigs (that could very well get them fired), and they both contain teacher-student romance ( more subtle in Gokusen). Another thing I found similar in both is that they are trying to change things for the better for the sake of their students. Hibiki is trying to make the school less strict about certain things and Kumiko is trying to get her students to learn and maybe straighten them out a bit. They both seem to genuinly care for their students.
With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...
Both "Strawberry Eggs" and Great Teacher Onizuka tell the story of a male teacher who has such a passion and desire to teach that they will go to any lengths to reach their students. Both series dive deeply into the realtionship between teacher and student, and are very touching stories about this kind of love. They both make me wish I had teachers like Hibiki and Onziuka when I was going to high school.
The passion, love, determination, and wisdom these two men show is really inspiring. If you're a fan of high school drama, comedy, and/or stories that really lift your heart, give Strawberry Eggs and GTO a go.
If you liked GTO, or the other way around, you will like the other. Both have teachers, that will do anything for their students. Both teachers get into the lives of their students, learning all the way about everyone. They both have humor/comedy. And they both have an ending that makes you wanting for more.
There’s no denying that Mizuho is beautiful. Normally that might be a bit of a disadvantage seeing as he is an average sort of boy who enjoys sports and games. However, his beloved grandfather has just passed away, and the will includes a strange request; his grandfather wants him to become closer to his mother's memory by attending the same all-girls academy she did for a semester. Obviously he can't hide his gender from the teachers of the school; so he will need their approval, but he also can't expose his gender in front of his fellow students. With the help of his child-hood friend Mariya, his own natural beauty, and just a little bit of luck, Mariya may just be able to fool his fellow students! Considering the turn of events, there may be more to his grandfather's dying request than meets the eye...
A man disguised as a woman, in an all-female school environment, with such skill that he appears to be not only female but also beautiful. Not a common anime plot, but still far from rare.
Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru and I My Me! Strawberry Eggs both have male characters cross dressing in girls' schools, and the focus of all attention. The two stories take a slightly different tack on the consequences of such cross dressing, but the underlying humour and romance are similar.
The main characters in I My Me and Otome wa are in the same predicament: while trying to fake being women they have to avoid detection, deal with admiring girls and they are both take place in a school environment. I think that the similarities end there and they diversify into individual anime that both are very enjoyable.
Both are school-anime with a genderbender twist!
Light hearted gender bender. Cross dressing with a healthy dose of forbbiden love. Both are really short and sweet and definatly worth the effort! Neither have overly elaborate plots which may leave the viewer wanting but more than make-up for any short commings in the kawaii factor!
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
While Strawberry isn't as crazy as Azumanga, it does have similar comedy. Though I warn you that Strawberry isn't as comedic as Azumanga, so this recommendation isn't for everyone!
It all revolves around high school and friendships made there. The humor is very simular in both of them.
And both have some perfert problems :P
