Strange. Very , very strange.
3 July 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Ultimate teacher is a very weird anime that , for all its puzzlingly strange acts of violence , under wear obsessions and bizarre acts of comedic super deformity , still remains watchable . But why ? Is it because its a fast paced head scratcher with a new off-key surprise waiting around every corner ? Is it because its funny in a mentally questionable sort of way ? or is it that once your cries of `what the.' have worn off , you wont help but be entertained by its chases , funny fight sequences and general...oddness? Well its all three reasons actually, rounded off by the fact that the main character is a psychopathic super teacher who wears a real big cape .

If you like your animation weird and funny , check this out. It'll have you scratching your head in confusion , but not for so long that you wont enjoy it .

Knowledge gives this : 3 out of 5 `
