Anime: Okusama wa Joshikousei (My Wife is a High School Girl)



Background:
Asami Onohara is a 17-yr old high school student with a secret. Unbeknownst to even her closest friends, she is already married. And her husband is her physics teacher Kyousuke Ichimaru. Even though they are married, they are prohibited from having sex till after Asami's high school graduation, much to her dismay (she wants to do it sooo bad). This was one of the conditions of Asami's father who still doesn't accept the marriage.

Twist:
No plot twist. Its an anime for light viewing.

In a Nutshell:
Its a love story of two individuals who are restrained from being intimate with one another because of the "public eye", on how their relationship is viewed as a taboo both from a social and cultural standpoint.

Afterthought:
A "sort of" dramatic romance story with some comedy sprinkled around to lighten up the deep moments within the series, usually on times that their secret is about to be exposed. Most of the times its the hardships of Asami on restraining herself and keeping all the love that she feels for Ichimaru inside.

Asami is unable to go through the various things a normal high school girl her age would, because she wants to become a wife worthy of her husband. In the other hand, Ichimaru is sometimes troubled on how to act and proceed with their relationship, while fighting off being approached and tempted by a lot of women his age. The series is a rollercoaster of "what da hell" s and "what da fug!!!" as you go along the daily hindrances and grief the couple encounters in their life of living together.

There is no back story on why and how they got married in the first place, unlike "Onegai Teacher", which has the same student-teacher-married-in-secret plot. It really leaves out a lot on how they got into that situation.

And Asami's character design is too voluptuous for a 17 yr old. A 5 foot built with boobs and ass that can rival any women that tempts her man. And the running stint within the series where she always fantasizing of finally having sex with Ichimaru.

Each episode is divided into 2 chapters, and are boring at times, but must be a treat for love sick teeners out there who fantasize of being lovers with their teachers. And its has a very annoying opening theme... I dunno why but it sometimes gets on my nerves.
