  • I My Me! Strawberry-Eggs is an original anime that teaches an important value.

    I have to admit that I thought this was going to be another generic high school romance/comedy, but it was much more.

    Amawa Hibiki is a young man who just graduated from college, and aspires to be a gym teacher. But he can't seem to get a job, and his money has run low. With only a dog and a few clothes to his name, he arrives at an inn with a strange landlady. To pay for his boarding, he has to work at the local school, or more like a sexist cult house. The principal won't allow men to work as a teacher there because she thinks men are pigs who teach without love. However, with the more-than-willing help of the landlady, he crossdresses as a woman to get hired, so he can prove that all men aren't what she thinks they are. With the success of earning a teaching position in gym and homeroom, Hibiki becomes slowly involved with the students' lives as a rather dramatic story develops.

    I'll have to admit that this anime has more than it's fair share of cliches, from hentai (in the Japanese sense) to generic students, but they sort of fit in with the theme of the story. Or maybe I haven't watched a hundred or so high-school romance/comedies out there. However, the main characters (e.g. Hibiki and the landlady)are original enough for me.

    The developing story of one of the other main characters, Fuuko, brings most of the drama to this otherwise lighthearted show. She opens up to Hibiki more and more of her tragedies throughout the anime, but she always keeps a smile on her face.

    One of the more disappointing elements of the show was the developing love story between Hibiki and Fuuko. There wasn't enough chemistry, and the love they were feeling for each other felt more like a parental love (regarding the different experiences). If you don't focus on that, then the love story is very enjoyable.

    I believe the best part of the show was the overall moral that men aren't all perverts and unloving beings, that being the reason Hibiki applied for a teaching position as a woman. The authority continuously forces their ethics onto the staff and female students, the main one being the opposite of the main theme. As the story progresses, you feel a sense of want of justice for the boys who study at this school, some who continue proving the principal's point.

    I My Me! Strawberry-Eggs is a warm, fun, and lighthearted anime that is certain to be enjoyed by people who have a want for the theme. The ending is also certain to leave you in tears.

    I My Me! Strawberry Eggs blew past my expectations. At first, I had expected same old same old plot development but twist after turn of excitement and action just way exceeded my expectations. Mind you, there were some problems (most discontinuity issues) that I don't have the time to mention but all in all, a solid 9.
