The series still commonly-known under its original Japanese name Onegai Teacher is an original anime production from director Yasunori Ide and scenario writer Yousuke Kuroda (Hellsing Ultimate and Mobile Suit Gundam 00, among many other prominent titles). It first aired in Japan during the Spring 2002 season, and later on various Animax-affiliated networks worldwide, and was first released on DVD in the U.S. in 2003 by Bandai Entertainment. While calling it one of the defining titles of its time would be a huge stretch, it was enough of a hit on both sides of the Pacific to spawn manga and light novel adaptations and a sequel anime (Please Twins!) and regular American rereleases up through 2006. Those rereleases are now fairly expensive if available at all, so Right Stuf opted to license-rescue it under their Nozomi Entertainment label earlier this year. Hence we now have a brand-new, economically-priced DVD rerelease.
