15+ Anime Where Mc is a master

Best Anime where Mc is a master

People tend to hate school in real life, but somehow we all wish to go to an institution as anime characters do! The environment is friendly, school life is colorful and the teachers are just like everyone else. Well, not in every anime.

Sometimes the teachers are absolute badasses, who reign with respect and dedication. They are loved by the community, but sadly they are hard to come across. Not many anime feature characters like them, and there are even fewer where the teacher is the mc!

Let’s take a look at these outstanding entries, all ranked based on their ambitions for teaching, authority, and reputation, as well as their ability to drive a plot by themselves!

Holding up to the rules of this ranking, Inuzuka-sensei had to be placed at the bottom. He isn’t a powerful guy by himself, but his love for his daughter is unmatched. After losing his wife, the father and the young girl now have to face big obstacles.

Giving his all for his family, Inuzuka searched for solutions all the time, but he was too busy with his job. One of his students offered them a visit at their family restaurant, and satisfied with the results, Inuzuka recruited her as a babysitter. A beautiful slice of life for sure!

Working in a kindergarten must be a tough job, but Tsuchoda-sensei has the motivation to do so. While dealing with the hordes of little kids to look after, he found some other sources of enjoyment. That factor was none other than the hot first-grade teacher, Yamamoto-sensei. They are a good ship for sure!

14. Satoshi Yabe from Mitsudomoe

Satoshi Yabe is an all-around average teacher, but he got the misfortune of receiving the worst class ever right after graduating. There are only three eleven-year-olds in the class who can be considered problem kids, but they give so much pain to their teacher that it feels like everyone is working against them.

These girls are triplets, and their personalities differ quite a bit. While the oldest is the most mature, the middle one is athletic and the youngest is shy, they all share one trait: the passion for torturing their teacher with both perversion and physical force.

13. Sai Fujiwara from Hikaru's Go

For those who haven’t had the opportunity to learn about this cool game, Hikaru’s Go might be a fantastic adventure. Hikaru’s Go is thought to be the oldest board game of all time, even beating chess! This abstract strategy game is all about surrounding more territory on the board than your enemy with little colored stones.

Looking through his grandpa’s old stuff, the young Hikaru heard a weird voice. He passed out, but the voice stayed even after he woke up. It belonged to the master go player Sai Fujiwara, who was the go coach of the Japanese emperor hundreds of years ago. His passion allowed him to play the game even as a ghost, and now he decided to help Hikaru master the game as well!

12. Heine Wittgenstein from The Royal Tutor

I think we can agree that this could be called the sophisticated Quintessential Quintuplets. Even more accurately the Quadramazing Quadruplets, as there are only four siblings this time to teach for the unlucky protagonist. Well, they weren’t born at the same time, but I can confirm that the premise is the exact same as in the case of QQ.

The famous Heine Wittgenstein is a man of dignity and prestige, being able to solve any issue with logic while keeping his calm state. Or at least he was able to until the king recruited him as a tutor for his four sons on line for the throne. They all have different personalities, along with the passion to not study at all. How can Heine get this job done while keeping his sanity?!

Everybody’s afraid of bugs, at least a little bit. Now, what if we make them large, give them some armor, and make them magical? That would be a little horrific I think. 

Humanity in this series got wiped out by the bad bugs, and the survivors continued living in floating cities. The only option to fight these monsters is to train highly skilled magical knights. Kanata was once the greatest of them all, but his reputation faded. He was named the trainer of team E601 to restore his prestige, but there is a slight problem. Everyone in that squad is a dumbass.

Gender stereotypes and misogyny is a common thing in our everyday life, and in this anime too. The young PE teacher, Amawa wanted to get a job at a local middle school, but the grumpy female director demands him to leave and states that she hates all men, and won’t hire one in her school.

As Amawa was really in need of money, he decided to teach the old lady a lesson and crossdress his way into teaching at that school. Now in his female persona, it is up to the quick-witted and desperate young man to not get caught.

9. Kumiko Yamaguchi from The Gokusen

If you have experience in teaching, even as just a tutor, then you know how hard it is to deal with misbehaving students. The ambitious Kumiko was ready to start off her career as a math teacher, but the class full of thugs at the Shirokin Academy made that quite hard.

Or at least that is what would have happened to any other teacher! Kumiko had no issue disciplining the pupils, as she is actually the acting leader of a yakuza clan! I can honestly recommend this show, as it is a perfect combination of old-fashioned humor and drama. 

8. Negi Springfield from Negima!

The ten-year-old Negi is a wizard trainee himself, but the final task to complete his course is quite a hard one: he has to pretend to be an English teacher at an all-girls school. He immediately gets in trouble on his first day, and almost loses his disguise.

Starting off a rocky relationship with one of his students, Asuna, would be a weak claim to make. She got to know Negi’s secret and demanded many things to not leak the info about him. 

Negi has got some interesting powers, such as blowing up the dresses of nearby girls, so his career there won’t lack adventures!

7. Tetsuo Takahashi from Interviews With Monster Girls

Tetsuo, an average biology teacher, holds a not-so-average secret: he loves Demis. These half-human creatures live within human society, and he set his life goal to uncover the mysteries of the “monsters”.

Of course, these creatures are quite friendly in reality. Tetsuo finds three students in his school and one fellow teacher, who belong to this group. A vampire, a dullahan, a snow woman, and a succubus from now will give plenty of fun time for the curious teacher – in a scientific way of course.

6. Junichirou Kagami from Ultimate Otaku Teacher

Every physicist has two sides: a genius scientist, and a hopeless otaku. Junichirou suffers from a made-up illness, one that doesn’t allow him to do things that he doesn’t want to. Basically a cover-up for laziness, but he uses it with pleasure to focus on his anime blog and not his real profession.

After his sister forces him to work as a teacher, he still doesn’t care about physics that much, and refuses to teach according to the curriculum. On the other hand, his extremely proficient skills in science and electronics make him able to teach more fun lessons to the students!

5. Fuutarou Uesugi from The Quintessential Quintuplets

The absolute honor student who lives in solitude, Fuutaro is always in need of money. His family lives in poverty, with their only income coming from his, and his father’s part-time jobs. One day, after having a harsh argument with a girl over his seat, he learns a good lesson to not judge people too quickly.

That girl has four other sisters, making them quintuplets. Their father searched a tutor for them with a high salary, and after learning all this, Fuutaro decided to work hard to get back on good terms with the girls.

It may seem like an impossible mission, but the power of romantic scenes with five dumb girls will make this show a hilarious ride from start to finish!

4. Nozomu Itoshiki from Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei

I bet sometimes your teachers told you that they had a bad day, and let’s make it easy for everyone by not making a fuss. They probably just chilled their way through the day, but Nozomu isn’t a calm person like that.

He is a pessimistic guy, and his state of mind could easily be ruined with the smallest of misfortunes. His students are almost as problematic as he is, and this satirical comedy perfectly covers the miserable reality of living everyday life. Every bit of culture and anti-culture is explored, making this show a good watch for the ones who dare to start it.

3. Glenn Radars from Akashic Records of Magic Instructor

This anime is one of the best examples of magical school types of shows. Featuring a realistic balance of fights, relationship building, and perversion, everything a fan of this genre could ask for is here. But the best part is of course the protagonist, the carefree and despicable Glenn.

After being named an indefinite substitute for class at the Alzano Imperial Magic Academy, the mood in the classroom changes. The lazy new teacher divides the class, but he soon manages to prove his real powers and earn the respect of his student. 

Well, only the respect for his abilities, as they still hold quite a grudge for the embarrassment and harassment he put some students through.

2. Koro from Assassination Classroom

We all know about the almost immortal alien who trained a class to kill him, but what do we really know about him? Assassination Classroom managed to gather a sizeable fanbase over the years, and that was mostly due to the hilarious yet sad dynamic of Koro and the students.

The weird monster that threatens the future of the planet wasn’t actually a bad guy, and the class of 3E actually got the best teacher of all time with him coming to train them! Sadly all relationships have to end one day, and on that day, many tears were shed.

1. Eikichi Onizuka from Great Teacher Onizuka

If you knew anything about this type of anime, you must have seen this one coming. Great Teacher Onizuka, GTO – not GTA, but close – is a wonderful anime appealing for the lovers of comedy and gang-related works. 

Onizuka is a hilarious guy, who decided to become a teacher after he stopped being a member of a biker gang. This “reformed” thug makes a great effort to earn the respect of his students, but his adventures only just began with taking the first step into the school. 

The unorthodox teacher takes drastic decisions to root out the sorrow in his class and does everything to help the pupils with their personal problems. Dark comedy, perversion, and action scenes fill the timeline of GTO, and I can guarantee that no one will feel betrayed after this one.
