As Onegai Teacher has some sad parts so does AYA. Both have a good mixture of the ups and downs in a relationship, so if you liked one you'd probably like the other.

Once again you've got similarities galore. Even though Ai Yori Aoshi is a harem anime while Onegai Teacher is not so much of a harem anime, you can get the same feel. This is again a meet between almost lonely and shy guys plus supernatural females (Aoi is supernatural, just watch the series, if I could do half as many chores...).
Both being romantic/comedies, with the usual "guy in unusual circumstances plot", makes both these series easily watchable and definately likeable.
Onegai Teacher and Ai Yori Aoshi are both love stories. AYA also has a harem comedy component. Both have beautiful music, wonderful characters, and a lot of character developement. OT has more basic fanservice, and has boosted sales of Pocky throughout the world! (Not really ... )

Ai Yori Aoshi has more romantic scenes than Onegai Teacher, but its comedy is just as funny.  It's really good, and if you liked it you'll like Onegai Teacher too.


Both stories have two characters that are made for each other and then a bunch of characters that pretty much try to pull each other away. The extra characters are also not aloud to know that the two are together making it full of awkward moments.

Sci fi themes, harem romance, much less humor.

Chobits, like Onegai Teacher, is a light and somewhat humorous romance title that brings us our favorite anime character types: the non-descript male lead, and the unworldly gorgeous female.


Both Please Teacher and Chobits involve women of extra-ordinary origin who fall in love with a young man. They are funny, uplifting, and wonderfully drawn and directed. You'll fall in love while laughing through it all.


Onegai Teacher and Chobits are about love and romance, are ecchi, and are also a bit serious. Chobits is about a robot girl and Onegai Teacher is about a teacher from space, so they're kind of alike. =P


Both anime are romance stories about a normal boy falling in love with a not so normal girl. Chobits is a machine made to help humans with their day to day life while Please Teacher is an alien who ends up as a school teacher. With lots of laughs and a little bit of ecchi if you liked one you should like the other.


Both story have to do with love and the fact that you should love someone and show your love to them if you realy mean it.

Both series have the same subject : the mariage between a student and a teacher. In both stories the main characters have to hide their love and marriage since it's forbiden and also they have to deal with the couple life that it's so very new to them and presents them with many problems each day


Okusama is like Please Teacher in reverse. The teacher is male, the student is female, and they must hide their forbidden love as they try to deal with things in every day life. Both series have a comical and serious approach to such relationships.


My Wife is a High School Girl and Please Teacher involve a marriage between a teacher and a student although the role in each are mixed by gender. They are very comical concerning how they have to hide their love from other people and deal with the problems of everyday life together.


" Both series it is on a relation of love rather prohibited with a teacher with a comical side who tries to prevent them from discovering his relation. "


Two shows about a student dating a teacher and their struggle to keep it secret from friends and classmates. Onegai has the female teacher, with Okusama the male.

Watching the couples struggle helplessly as people start to suspect about their relationship and dig deeper is quite funny.

The characters are very similar, both females are completely clueless and dependent on their male partners for the most simple of tasks. If you fantasise about this kind of woman, I would strongly recommend both of these series for you ^^

Midori Days

Midori Days

Sawamura Seiji is the most notorious delinquent at his high school -- always getting into fights and causing problems, leaving him single and unlucky with the ladies.

Now, in addition to dealing with daily fights and the gossip of his classmates, Seiji must handle a new problem of embarassing proportions: Kasugano Midori, a pretty young girl in place of his hand, who happens to have fallen in love with him!

Midori Days has similar romance as Please Teacher, but also has more funny elements. If you love this genre and liked Please Teacher, watch Midori Days!


Situations are thrown at the boys in both Please Teacher and Midori Days either by a girl alien or by a girl stuck on your hand! These boys have to make it through with funny problems and comical situations that they find themselves in.


Both of the guys in these shows are out of the blue stuck with an unlikely girl in an odd situation. Both of the women of couse fall in love with them and cause conflict in the mens' lives. Both are hillarious and sweet.


I agree, there's love triangles, secret anomalies, tons of echi situations, and great comedic value.  If you liked one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Living together doesn't assure the success of a relationship. It may be, actually, just a new beginning where you still have lots to learn; and it may (and probably will) bring the relationship various problems. In both Onegai Teacher and REC this aspect is present, Onegai just explores it a bit more; also, while the characters of both series live together and love each other, they still need some time to actually understand and get used to their feelings (being afraid is just part of the process) and become a "real" couple.


Please Teacher takes on a supernatural, unrealistic approach whereas Rec could potentially happen to someone however the main characters in each have to find a new beginning and keep their relationship a secret. They are also each filled with awkward moments and sexual tension between the two main characters


botha animes involve two people getting to live together under strange circumstances and there is romance developed between them


Well there are parts that are similar and parts that are different between the two.  In Please Teacher it's about a teacher who just happens to be an alien living together with her student who has found out her secert.  Then in Rec it's about a salaryman living together with a rookie voice actress.  While portions of the overall story are fairly different they both deal with the same thing which is two people living together and the relationship that grows as time progresses as well as the characters coming to understand their feelings.
