Being the great fan of Onegai Teacher that I am, I decided I’d check into the follow up OVA and see whether or not it can measure up. I walked into this anime not expecting very much in terms of evolving plot, seeing that this OVA is only the length of the standard episode of Onegai Teacher: twenty to twenty-five minutes. However I was expecting a last good taste of Onegai Teacher before I saw its sequelOnegai Twins.

First off the art has changed quite a bit, actually decreasing in quality from the original Onegai Teacher. In the original series the characters looked and acted like real people but in the OVA this is not the case. Where animation is lacking, the anime picks up in audio. What can I say; the “if it’s not broken don’t fix it” attitude is clearly the perspective the creators took to the OVA. Fans of Onegai Teacher will recognize the OST from the series.

Sadly, this anime brings nothing new to the series in terms of character development or plot movement. Its main purpose is to serve as filler and give fans one final taste of the Onegai Teacher world with a load of fan service. It even fails to give ample screen time to all of the side characters, who receive just a momentary screening. The whole plot revolves around the idea of having Kei and Mizuho deal with Mizuho’s relatives teaching them a few lessons in life.

With much regret, I can’t recommend the Onegai Teacher OVA to anyone wanting another taste of the series, unless you are interested in an anime filled with fan service or just absolutely crave one last taste of Onegai Teacher.
