Anime Review Roundup
Why the Hell Are You Here, Teacher!? is the not so good one. It’s a show about four schoolboys and the sexually provocative situations they get into with their female teachers, on their way to developing the kind of relationships that would in real life result in flashing blue lights and the slam of a judge’s gavel. It’s a saucy, fan-service filled show, a series of thirteen short form episodes. I’m kind of shamefaced to say that I didn’t loathe this show with the righteous indignation that I should have.

This Week I Have Been Mostly Rewatching...
Ai Yori Aoshi is a little more risqué when it comes to its fan service, although nowhere nearly as risqué as this week’s new release review. But it has imagery that in later shows would demand the obscuration of steam, sunbeams, or conveniently placed turtles. Originally a Geneon DVD release, once that company went under, Funimation picked up the licence and released the whole kit and caboodle as one of their Anime Classics titles. Here’s my review. This Region 1 release is still available at retail, and is well worth picking up.
MVM will release Why the Hell Are You Here, Teacher!? on Blu-ray on Monday 23rd August.
