Top 10 Anime Teachers You Wish You Had

School for me was very... unpleasant to say the least. What would have made it better was if the teachers were nicer. So which of these anime teachers, do you wish was your teacher?

The Top Ten

1 Korosensei Korosensei

He teaches his kids even though they are trying to kill him. He cares about their grades, and always wants them to do as well, if not better, than Class A. He cares about their future and even has conversations with them about what they want to do with their lives. This is what all teachers should strive to be like. So many just don't care about their students having a good future, they just want them to pass to make them look good. Koro Sensei is someone that all teachers can learn from. - Elric-san

This teacher knows what it truly means to be a teacher. He's risked his own life multiple times to teach his students valuable lessons and almost died to save them. He's a teacher above all else and won't hesitate to save them. He's supportive despite the fact that he knows, that he could be killed by them. A+ teacher for me. - RoseRedFlower

He's probably the best teacher in all of anime. I mean, he taught the students, and got their grades to rise tremendously and made it fun for them - AnonymousChick

I'm an 18 year old guy and I cried when he died.

2 Kakashi Hatake Kakashi Hatake Kakashi Hatake is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I just had to add him on there. He takes responsibility on his shoulders, protects his students with his life and doesn't tolerate if they act like brats. Yet he's dependable and caring to them. A truly great teacher and ninja. - RoseRedFlower

3 Eikichi Onizuka Eikichi Onizuka

This man used be in a motorcycle gang...sounds perfect. Yet he kind of is. He had the best set of expectations for his students and cares about the lives of the students. He didn't start out perfect but slowly became the best teacher in the anime. - RoseRedFlower

He's just great. Great Teacher Onizuka

4 Master Roshi Master Roshi

This old man was the one who taught Goku long ago. He's also a master at martial arts and is very witty. He's also a bit of a pervert so if any ladies are interested, watch out. - RoseRedFlower

5 Franken Stein Franken Stein

There's a possibility of him dissecting you but if your life was on the line, you can count on him. He's defended Death City from threats and helps his students grow stronger. Maybe taking risky chances but all in the name of helping them. - RoseRedFlower

6 Izumi Curtis Izumi Curtis Izumi Curtis is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

She taught the Elric brothers everything. A master alchemist at heart and one of the best martial artists ever. Although she doesn't usually take on students she accepted the Elric brothers. She became their second mother and became close to those two. A great badass teacher. - RoseRedFlower

7 Junichirou Kagami Junichirou Kagami

First for anyone who doesn't know, this red head is a guy. I thought he was a girl originally but it's true. Anyways, he's into the anime, manga and otaku culture too. He see's his students in a different light that most people wouldn't notice. Yet he's not distant in anyway. Just a truly great teacher. - RoseRedFlower

8 Shouta Aizawa Shouta Aizawa

I relate to him on a spiritual level

Who wouldn't want a sleeping bag for a teacher that might or might not expell you on your first day of school

9 Nino (Arakawa Under the Bridge) Nino (Arakawa Under the Bridge)

Nino here teachers her boyfriend Kou how to enjoy life to the fullest. Don't rush your life and learn to appreciate the little things. She has a rather strange look on the world but you can understand why she feels this way. As she teaches you lessons from under the bridge... - RoseRedFlower

10 Jiraiya Jiraiya

Other than the fact that he's a big pervert, he is a good teacher.

The Contenders

He trains both Ippo and Takamura to do boxing and founded the Kamogawa Boxing Gym. He's stoic and rarely shows any emotion to anyone. He also doesn't tolerate slacking and will get mad if his students under achieve. Still, he's a great teacher. - RoseRedFlower

15 Irina Jelavic Irina Jelavic
16 Silver Rayleigh Silver Rayleigh

He became Luffy's mentor during the two year time skip. He's pretty casual and fun loving despite his appearance. He's normally one who thinks before attacking, a very promising skill. Him bonding with the Straw Hat Pirates was endearing and heartwarming to the show. - RoseRedFlower

18 Yami Yugi Yami Yugi

Wish I had him to teach me how to play Duel Monsters.

19 Heine Wittgenstein - The Royal Tutor

Despite his small stature, Heine is an awesome teacher. He is like the human version of Koro-sensei. He is very intelligent and talented. He cares a lot about his students and is always giving them life lessons to help them mature. If you watch the anime, it's like assassination classroom but with a good ending. Although it's a bit tear-jerking at the end because of what his students did to make Heine their professor again.

The 4 princes hated him but then he taught them so well that they acknowledged him and cried when he resigned.
