Comedy is among my favorite genres in anime. A good comedy anime can do wonders in relieving your daily stress. And for someone like me who handles work, studies, gaming, and whatnot, it is kind of necessary to have an outlet. As such, I pounce at any chance I get to check out a new comedy anime. A Terrified Teacher at Ghoul School looks like a very promising comedy anime at that.
So welcome back to another edition of Put This on Your Radar – the series where I talk about upcoming anime that caught my eye. And today we will be taking a look at A Terrified Teacher at Ghoul School. Yes, it is every bit as hilarious as the name sounds. So let’s get started.
What do we know about A Terrified Teacher at Ghoul School anime?
I don’t know why the official English localization of the title localized “Youkai” as “Ghoul”. Youkai are quite different from ghouls. Either way, the anime will be based on the manga of the same name by Tanaka Mai. The manga has been serialized in the monthly GFantasy magazine since November 2014 and it is still ongoing. As for the anime, we don’t know who is working on it at the time of writing. We just know that it will come out sometime in 2024. It was just announced yesterday so I expected to see more details down the line.
Either way, the plot of the manga revolves around Abe Haruki. A timid novice teacher who has been appointed to teach a school full of Youkai. And of course, just like any normal person should be, he is terrified of the Youkai. The manga is mostly gag/workplace humor with a sprinkle of fantasy/mythology as the Youkai are involved.
The premise of the manga itself sounds so entertaining. Like, this random dude has been put in charge of a class full of supernatural beings. That sounds rough but I can imagine how many fun moments that could lead to. Comedy manga in general benefits a lot from an anime adaptation so I hope that it’s the same case here. And I am just praying for a decent adaptation with a decent budget. Stuff like this is easy to animate so I just don’t want a half-baked adaptation is all.
That is all for now!
Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. A Terrified Teacher at Ghoul School looks promising and I hope it gets a good adaptation. With that said, see ya!!
