I'm writing this short review just to vent my frustration. This is a really bad show and I honestly don't get all the positive and highly rated reviews. Ok, I am willing to admit that my rating is excessively harsh, as the anime does have a coherent story; so the rating pretty much reflects my personal dislike. But I just found this anime so extremely disagreeable and annoying, both character-wise and story-wise. In the end, I really couldn't force myself to watch the last two episodes. I always avoid writing reviews if I haven't seen all the anime right to its end and also - usually - if I don't like it. But I just thought I'd write something to warn that this is a waste of time. You've got the usual wishy washy high school student male lead with little to no personality. The female protagonist is an adult alien who one night appears floating on a lake and the next day appears to be the male lead's teacher. For absolutely ridicoulous reasons, they decide to get married and then have to keep it secret from the other students in the class; this is the source of most of the anime's comedy and misunderstandings. And as time passes they get to fall in love. That is the plot. It's just that everything they do, how they act, the choices they make, is just so foolish and childish and senseless. And it's not just the characters, the whole situation is silly. Yeah, I know, just reading the summary should have been enough to know that I shouldn't have expected much from it.

As an Ah! My Goddess fan, I went into this expecting to be at least entertained, and I can't say that I wasn't. At no point in this series did I find anything I could really call "bad" other than it being unimpressive compaired to AMG. However, the show as a whole was deeply uninspired compared to the more acclaimed romance titles and probably isn't worth a view unless you've seen everything else, and you are desperate for more romance anime. The story is generally unoriginal, at times rather nonsensical, and (for the ending) even way too convenient. The premise is: extra-terrestrial space lady (Mizuho) comes to earth but is seen by one and only one high schooler (Kei), who, by the grace of fate, becomes her student and neighbor. When they are caught in an inappropriate teacher-studen romance, they fabricate the story that they were already married (all to save the Mizuho's job, because... why does this matter?), and that Kei is actually 18 rather than 15 because he was in a coma-like state for 3 years, laying the foundation of the plot for the rest of the series. The biggest problem this series suffers from is the pacing. Even considering that it was only 13 episodes long, by the second episode, we find our first of many "slow kiss approach interrupted by antics" instances in just the second episode - after a total combined interaction between Kei and Mizuho of about 15 minutes. Even by the end of the series, I just never felt any real depth or credibility to Kei and Mizuho's relationship, or even their characters for that matter. The face-palmingly convenient "gacha" ending didn't help either - the quote "i just remembered" has stuck with me as a meme all these years later. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this anime to anyone, romance fans or otherwise. Weak main characters backed by a cast of pointless side-characters with equally pointless plot threads, undeveloped plot, and a disappointing ending will leave you with nothing but a greater appreciation for some of the finer romance titles out there, which I guess is the most value Please Teacher can provide.
