"Kei is a 18 year old boy in a class full of 15 year olds because of a strange disease he calls a "Standstill" that put him in a coma for 3 years. None of his friends know this because he tries to keep it a secret.
Now after a series of pretty awkward events he finds himself married to his teacher who happens to be a young, attractive, half human Alien undercover galactic reporter. Which isn't a problem so much as keeping it a secret from everyone else. And thats just where the problems start...For story line info read the Amazon review. I'm just going to comment on my overall impression of the disk.The first installment was so close to the books you could've followed along page by page. This disk breaks away without breaking away from the story line (much). Kind of like this is what happened between the chapters in the book.
I didn't get into the first disk but I'm really glad I gave the second disk a try. The story is good. The gags and awkward situations are better played. And Mizuho's little sister Maho (which is the Japanese word for either witch or magic - can't remember which) was done very well and turned out to be a cute little atom bomb. I think the book series made her out to be a little older and portrayed her concern for her sister a little better. The American voice for Maho was a little strange but bearable as is Kei's voice.
The art is very good. The music is ok. The extras are pretty decent - theres a full length video to the opening song that's pretty nice.
Because of this disk I'll finish out the series.
I still highly recommend the books (manga) to this series."
Funny, but a tad more mature than the first DVD.

"While Kei and Mizuho try to find a peaceful place for a summer honeymoon, they run into the rest of Kei's classmates. As Hyosuke tries to find out if Kei likes her or not, the rest of the gang gets into some trouble. Adult, mature trouble. While the events happen off screen the story takes a very serious twist when two of the characters make love to each other. Now they have to decide if they LOVE each other, if you get what I mean. This makes episode 6 a very serious one.
If that isn't complex enough now add the fact that Mizuho's pretty mom and [aggrivated] sister show up to check out her new Earthling husband. Maho, the sister, acts very much like Skuld from 'Oh My Goddess!' while the mom, Hatsuho, acts very much like Urd from 'Oh My Goddess!' right down to the sexy body!"

"Just to start off, Please Teacher is a very nicly done anime. Anyways, the first episode of the volume starts off with Kei and Ms. Kazami on their honeymoon on a southern island. They soon find out that Hyosuke, Matagu and the others are on the island too. The second episode is one of the most serious episodes I think of the whole series. Hyosuke and Kaede have to work out the feelings they have torwards each other. The second episode also deels with when Kei meets Ms. Kazami's mother and little sister. With Maho (Ms. Kazami's little sister) trying to get rid of Kei and Hatsuho's (Ms. Kazami's mother) advances. The third has to do mostly about Kei, Ms. Kazami and Ms. Kazami's mother and sister working everything out between each other. The series is funny but it does have quite a lot of serious moments. The one thing that impresses me most about this series is the way the students have problems just like teen, everyday problems such as love and friendship. Please Teacher is ranked up with Evangelion and .hack//SIGN"
Funny teen aimed PG-16 anime, must see

"This is PG-16 anime! man-o-man is this DVD volume funny filled with all sorts double meanings and non-stop laughs, so if your a teen into raunchy humor, this is the show for you. We first see our two fav. people Kei and Mizuho. Having a nice honeymoon, but only to have a pint sized stalker follow Kei's every move. The two love birds leave the beach and they drive along only to find all of Keis friends there to help one of the teacher w/a man powered airplane. After a fun time every one goes back the thier rooms, has a lil fun w/every one's friend beer. After that some of the teen boys go into diff. rooms and Mizuho gets a lil suprise, needless to say she was waiting for Kei to return. Hyuske also gets his own treat. Moving along we see Mizuho and Kei, battle it out w/Mizuho's very bratty younger sis, Maho. When Mizuhos mom and sister come to visit. Thier mom (Hatshu)doesn't do any thing to Maho from threating Kei ever he ever does any thing wrong to her sister. Poor Kei has to protect himself, from her. He finally is at peace when, one the friends drops a bombshell a/b the blond teen boy. Kei settles it out w/blondie, and he gets a girl friend, but Maho gets the wrong idea about the two. Now its the last episode in the DVD, and poor Kei has dealt w/his sis-in-law, and her never ending abuse. He finally gets a chance to rest, but Maho just keeps on going. She finally gets so angry w/him that she transports him to another world after you gessed it- "getting the wrong idea". She trys to kill him, but he gets so stressed out he does into a "standstill". Mizuho comes to save Kei. And has always a funny yet touching ending."
