When he is “stuck” he goes into a coma like state for a moment. After he awakens from being "stuck" he sees a weird disturbance on the water.

  • Sort of a harem comedy/sci-fi. This anime is a story about a maldevelped mentally ill boy who marries his teacher who just so happens to be an alien conducting anthropological studies. The boy and teacher have to hide their marriage from the world.moreless

    Ok, here's the deal. This show is pretty bad. The premise is just downright corny. Kei is a physically and mentally maldeveloped boy. He suffers from a catatonic state he calls a 'Stand Still'. These 'stand-still' can last several days up to several years. This affliction has a net result of Kei being socially and psychologically awkward. At the end, the story reveals the nature of these 'stand-still' episodes, having roots in mental illness that prevents a person to cope with loss, grief, and change. While this sounds silly just typing it out, it is the one redeeming feature of this anime - the subtext about grief and recuperation is insightful. The story starts of with Kei observing a UFO. Then there is a new teacher - the kind that all the kids want to get-with - who is none other than an alien conducting anthropological studies on earth. Kei and the teacher, Mizuho, end up getting married. Most of the show is about the conflict inherent in their relationship, how they can't consummate their marriage, and slap-stick side plots. But the end, there is some subtext about relationships, love, recovery. As mentioned above, the lesson learned is that one must face grief and loss; when you stand-still in the face of pain, then you never move forward with your life. This is demonstrated by how physically, socially, and mentally maldeveloped Kei is, but as he faces his fear and grief, he starts to get better. My critique is this - the dialogue is horrible. The characters are one-dimensional. The plot and story line are linear. And at the end, the story romanticizes a sexual relationship between a 15 year old girl and her math teacher. Yeah, we have a word for that: child molester. Here in the US, that is a felony. To romanticize that in anyway is just down right repugnant.moreless

    Onegai Sensei is an anime about an 18 year old boy with a serious illness that will put him in a "stand still" or near death, who meats an alien who has came to earth to observe us and try to prevent us from going down a "destructive" path.

    After the alien( mizuho Kazami) arrives at ours planet she gets seen by the boy(Kei Kusanagi ) and and they get caught stuck in a storage room. so to get out of this mess Kei and Mizuho must lie to her boss and tell him that they are married. and that night they got all of the papers done and they were officially married. after they get married a lot goes on. you will have to watch the anime if you want to fine out what happens.moreless

    One of the cutest shows ive ever seen. The last episodes made me cry (hard to admit). I just loved it from the start and I think its worth rewatching. It has good elements for a romance story, and I think that the characters in this story are sweet. I really like it because lately ive had trouble finding romantic stories like these. I also like the fact that it wasnt too perverted and didnt show many nude scenes because too me that made the anime even better. Anybody that wants an anime with romance and aliens should watch this one.moreless

    Kei is a very interesting person for a boy of 15 years. He has a very unique illness that is somewhat like an emotionally induced coma. He calls them "stand stills". this was triggered by an event involving his sister, which isn't made very clear, but I believe his sister commited suicide. I am not quite sure though. Ever since then, when ever he feels emotionally distraught, he blacks out. After the incident with his sister, Kei had a stand still that lasted for three years when he was in tenth grade. 3 years later he woke up, 18 years old physically yet his body hadn't aged a day. To keep this illness a secret he transfered schools and became very good friends with 5 classmates. Then one day, his class got a new teacher, Miss. Mizuho Kazume. Coincidentally, the night before Kei was resting by a lake when a UFO landed, and out popped Miss. Mizuho Kazume in her alien garb and everything. I think it's kinda stupid that the whole "alien" part of the story was never actually brought out and explained entirely. Also a big coincidence, is the fact that Miss Kazume moved in next door to Kei. Anyway, since Mizuho is now a teacher at Kei's school, Mizuho must make sure that Kei doesn't reveal her secret so she confronts him. Then to "even the score" as it were, Kei tells her about his illness. So now they know the most intimate and private, secrets that they each have to hide. This makes for a very interesting situation.

    Then after an accident involving her confronting him, the principle thought, that there was a student teacher relationship going on...(little did we know that his assumption was actually a prediction) As a defense, Kei's Uncle (current care taker) claimed that the two have been married, so firing her would be pointless. Now to make that story come true the two had to live together to "play the part". Well one thing lead to another and now an alien teacher is in love with a student earthling.moreless
