Oresama Teacher (Japanese: 俺様ティーチャー Hepburn: Ore-sama Tīchā?) is a Japanese manga serialized in shōjo manga magazine Hana to Yume since 2007, written and illustrated by Izumi Tsubaki. As of the end of 2014, 17 bound volumes have been released under the "Hana to Yume Comics" label. The manga is published in English by Viz Media and Madman Entertainment, and in French by Delcourt.


Mafuyu Kurosaki is a high school student who was a gang leader in the Saitama Prefecture. However, after being caught by the police, Mafuyu is transferred to Midorigaoka Academy under the threat that she would be disowned if she ever gets into another fight. Determined to live a normal high school girly-girl life, she runs into Takaomi Saeki, her homeroom teacher who turns out to be her former childhood friend neighbor, a former delinquent and the reason why she became one herself. She soon discovers that Midorigaoka Academy is full of delinquents, good-for-nothings, and troublesome students. Under Saeki's orders, she becomes a member of the school's Public Morals Club, whose goal is to clean up delinquency and to eventually improve enrollment figures.


Main characters[edit]

Mafuyu Kurosaki (黒崎 真冬 Kurosaki Mafuyu?)
Mafuyu is a high school girl who was a renowned gang leader who united many delinquents in the Saitama Prefecture. After she is arrested by the police, her mother transfers her to Midorigaoka Academy where she would get to live on her own as a normal high school student on the condition that she would be disowned if she begins fighting again. She aspires to be a fashionable girl, however, she discovers that Midorigaoka is full of delinquents, and that her childhood friend, who got her into fighting and gangs, is now her homeroom teacher.[1] In order to avoid getting caught fighting, she dons a rabbit mask, calling herself "Super Bun" (ウサちゃんマン?), and sometimes cross-dresses as a male delinquent "Natsuo" (夏男?), where she wears a wig, a boys uniform from her old school, and platform boots. She keeps these identities hidden from everyone except for Saeki,[2] although Hayasaka and Okegawa cannot help but notice an intense battle aura around her as well as her battle instincts. Under the handle "Snow", Kurosaki corresponds regularly with a pen pal named "Strawberry Love" (actually Okegawa) using a carrier pigeon which she saved from drowning.[2] She also tries to remember a glimpse of her past that involves Saeki.[volume & issue needed]
Takaomi Saeki (佐伯 鷹臣 Saeki Takaomi?)
The title character of the story, Saeki is Mafuyu's homeroom teacher.[1] He is regarded by his students as scary.[2] Prior to the series, he was named Takaomi Gojou, a strong and notorious high school delinquent who lived next door to Mafuyu. He is the cause of Mafuyu's delinquent character, having taught her how to fight and defend, all to his amusement.[1] He makes a wager with the chairman of the school that he can double the school's enrollment in three years, but if he loses, he will not be paid for five years. He forms the Public Morals Club with Kurosaki and Hayasaka as founding members.[2]
Kaori Hayasaka (早坂 Hayasaka Kaori?)
Hayasaka is a lone wolf delinquent that Mafuyu befriends. He likes to take enemy attacks head on, stating that he feels like he's running away when he dodges. He and Mafuyu are forced to be founding members of the Public Morals Club. He is also notably good at embroidery that he was recruited by the Crafts club.[2]
Kyotaro Okegawa (桶川 恭太郎 Okegawa Kyōtarō?)
A third-year student who was the bancho of Midorigaoka Academy before being defeated by "Natsuo". When he was suspended for four days, he goes with Mafuyu to a movie where she learns that he is a romantic at heart, and adores cute things such as the characters in the fictional show Nekomata. He is the owner of the pigeon that Mafuyu saved a year ago and is Mafuyu's pen pal "Strawberry Love", although neither of them are aware of the connection.[2] He values Mafuyu's friendship and seeks her advice when he finds something troubling him.[volume & issue needed]
Shinobu Yui (由井 忍 Yui Shinobu?)
Shinobu is a self-proclaimed ninja who joins the Public Morals Club in an attempt to take them down to help out the student council president.
Aki Shibuya (渋谷 亜希 Shibuya Aki?)
Aki Shibuya, who goes by Akkī (アッキー Akkī?), is a student who joins Midorigaoka Academy with hopes of being Mafuyu's subordinate, as he knows about her delinquent past as a former student at Higashi Middle School.

Student Council[edit]

Miyabi Hanabusa (華房 雅 Hanabusa Miyabi?)

The Student Council President and is the son of the School Chairman. He is aware of the true history of Midorigaoka and of the bet that Saeki proposes. Despite his feminine looks, he can be quite cunning and is capable of 'enslaving' people with only a stare (effectively working on both Mafuyu and Hayasaka). Often seen smiling, it is hard to tell what goes on in his mind. It is unknown whether he truly cares for the rest of the student council members (often helping them and giving them advice) and whether he truly takes the bet seriously. Especially considering he has the Student Council members try to destroy the Public Morals Club one at a time rather than simultaneously or working together as a group. It appears[weasel words] as if he's counting on the Club, Mafuyu in particular, to help the Student Council members overcome their personal issues or weaknesses that he couldn't do himself, such as Mafuyu getting Ayabi to finally return home and talk to his siblings after an extended absence or Nonoguchi's hatred of men. Although extremely weak physically, (he broke both his arms fighting bullies which caused Yui to decide to be his bodyguard) he is more cunning and intelligent than he lets on, such as knowing Yui was the one who protected Wakana during the last day of club assessments.

Shuntarō Kōsaka (高坂 俊太郎 Kōsaka Shuntarō?)

A first year now second year (class 3) and a member of the Student Council. Serious to a fault, his plans are described as 'only good on paper' and will panic when presented with an unanticipated problem within his plans. He was the one responsible for the plan to ruin the school festival by leading a gang war within the school (which was stopped by the efforts of Okegawa and Mafuyu as Natsuo). He eventually loosens up after the president tells him to hit Mafuyu in the face with a cream pie causing him to snap and finally succeed simply by charging her while throwing pies with no plan whatsoever (his various other 'pranks' failed.) Essentially 'became a fool' towards the end and learned, somewhat, to not overplan or expect things to always go according to plan.

Wakana Hōjō (北条 若菜 Hōjō Wakana?)

A first year now second year (class 2) and a member of the Student Council. She, along with Yui, seems to be the closest to the President and has been with them for a long time. Initially she guarded President Miyabi at a request from her father who is an underling for Miyabi's mother, but now does it because she wants to and is planning on studying to become a (most likely his) secretary. She wears her hair up in a high pony tail and is often seen carrying a bamboo sword. She is a tough fighter, serious and strong-willed. She is, at first, unwilling to believe that Yui had betrayed the President (unaware that it was planned) and views him as a traitor because of it. It's hinted (and noticed by Mafuyu and the President) that she harbors a crush on Yui despite her harsh words and was most likely hurt by his indifference towards her and apparent betrayal. She has proved, however, to be an honest person and when she was appointed the supervisor for the clubs, she eventually decides to stamp the Public Morals Club's papers (despite her objective to end them) out of both obligation towards 'Usa-chan Man' for drawing attacks away from her during the final day of club inspections (she was getting overwhelmed since all her guards were sick from being slipped laxatives from a rejected club.) Also, Hayasaka accidentally dropped in front of her a fully completed sheet regarding the club's activities, members, and achievements which eliminated any grounds for her to reject the club. She's under the mistaken impression that the protection Yui provided from the shadows during the final hours of the inspection was from the President.

Reito Ayabe (綾部 麗人 Ayabe Reito?) a.k.a Ayaben (あやべん Ayaben?)

A first year (class 2) now second year and the only unwilling member of the Student Council. He often carries a guitar case strapped onto his back. Mysteriously becomes stronger in the old school building and manages to completely overwhelm Mafuyu after calling her out with a challenge letter. It turns out is that he has a strong disliking towards anything dirty. Because of this anger towards the uncleanliness, he is able to become physically stronger while cleaning. That is also why he carries a broom, which he has named Fujishima-san, in a guitar case around. So while he'd be weak and defenseless in a clean room, in an extremely dirty room he'd be able to take out a group while cleaning the room. In chapter 71, he senses through his broom that Natsuo is Mafuyu when he cleaned the cloths she was wearing (which Shibuya got from him) and knowing that Mafuya is 'strong' from fighting her as herself. It is also revealed that he is the oldest of two sisters and three brothers. Used to (obsessively) clean his house and take care of his siblings as their parents were rarely home due to the father working as a truck driver and the mother as a nurse. Due to issues with his siblings he left home to stay in a dormitory at the school, and never contacted them until Mafuyu intervened. She is the only person other than the Student Council President who knows about his "cleaning attacks" which compel him to clean an extremely dirty room. The President saw him during one the attacks and used the information to blackmail him into joining the Student Council while Mafuyu is willing to stay quiet but has him make bentos for the Public Morals Club since he insists on paying some form of "hush money" to ensure she stays silent. For some reason the presence of his broom, Fujishima-san, acts as a tranquilizer allowing him to suppress the attacks somewhat. Ayabe is also the Dorm Manager for Shibuya's dorm which is a position he would have rejected prior to meeting Mafuyu. It's unknown whether or not he's still with the Student Council after he lost to Mafuyu, but he's remaining neutral and hasn't told any of the other council members about the phantom members really being Mafuyu in disguise or that she's a capable fighter.

Kanon Nonoguchi (野々口 歌音 Nonoguchi Kanon?)

A first year now second year (class 4) and a member of the Student Council. She doesn't seem to like men as when Kosaka attempted to touch her, she viciously slapped his hand away and threatened him to not touch her. She wears her hair up into two pigtails. It is revealed that she used to quite the girly girl when she was a child and believed that one day her prince will come to rescue her, this was all due to her treasured picture book which she kept with her at all times. Of which she was also mercilessly teased by all the boys in class, especially by the leader of the boys Kento of whom apparently had feelings for her. As things progressed his teasing got worse which got him finally beaten by her. The boys watching this thought he was getting bullied and tried to help Kento so they started gang up one her tearing her favorite book in front of her. This makes her snap and she proceeds to brutally beat the boys culminating with her tearing up the book her self, saying that "Boys are weak." Since then she snaps at the mere mention of princes as "her prince" failed to show up and save her along with a severely low opinion of males in general. The only exception was the Student Council President for some reason which is why she willing serves him on the Student Council. In an attempt to draw Natsuo and Usa-chan man out she spreads a rumor that the Year 2 Class 5 girls were being accosted by delinquents from Kiyama. This backfires when delinquents from Kiyama actually start harassing the girls on Kiyama's Banchou's orders to draw her out. However, she gets some of her innocence and belief in princes again after Natsuo rescues her over and over, despite her repeated attacks, and apologizes to her for being 'late' during the last rescue. How she'll react once she finds out that Natsuo is really Mafuyu crossdressing is unknown.

Runa Momochi (百地 瑠奈 Momochi Runa?)

A second year now third year (class 3) and a member of the Student Council. She is a fairly attractive girl with wavy, light hair.

Komari Yukioka (雪岡 小鞠 Yukioka Komari?)

A first year now second year (class 3) and a member of the Student Council. A cute-quiet girl, she is the smallest out of the Student Councils and is often fed sweets by the President. Her cutesy charm infatuates anyone to the point of enslaving them. This occasionally causes trouble for her as she gets swarmed by fans or is given more candy than she can carry. Although she can talk she somehow compels people into doing things for her while remaining mute. She recently has taken an interest in Shibuya (because he is the only guy who doesn't get infatuated by her charm and saw through her plan to get him to be a mole for the Student Council) as he's her 'type'. When she speaks, it does not match her cute doll like appearance, thus remaining silent in order to maintain her charm. Currently, only Shibuya and the President know of her quiet facade however, she is beginning to regain normal speech functions. Appears to be somewhat of a pervert, commenting on other male student's bodies and wanted to touch the President's butt.

Midorigaoka Students[edit]

Tomohiro Kawauchi (河内 智広 Kawauchi Tomohiro?)

A loyal follower of Okegawa and considered the number 2 within his gang. He triggered the fight between Midorigaoka and Kiyama High during the cultural festival in order to challenge Okegawa. He felt disappointed in Okegawa, stating that he "misses" the glory of Midorigaoka's Okegawa banchou. After that incident, Kawauchi made up with Okegawa. In later chapter, Okegawa became his classmate because the latter had to repeat one year. Now in third year class 4.

Daikichi Gotō (後藤 大吉 Gotō Daikichi?)

The number 3 within Okegawa's gang. Have a great admiration towards Okegawa. President of the Reward-winning Research Club. Often seen with his classmate Kawauchi. He somehow could not read the situation happened around him.

Higashi High[edit]

Kōhei Kangawa (寒川 航平 Kangawa Kōhei?)

A Higashi High first year as of chapter 67, (he was in his third year of middle school in the beginning, east high middle and high school are next to each other), he is a member of Mafuyu's old gang and while she was Banchou he served as number 2, with Maizono as number 3. After she left, he became Banchou. It is revealed that in the past, he had come to challenge Mafuyu and was defeated, subsequently deciding to join Higashi High after his defeat. He is an out-going, openly affectionate person and is a bit of a goof (like many of the cast). Although he is often seen messing around and in a good mood, he is considerate of Mafuyu's circumstances and tried to prevent her from getting involved in the 'war' between Higashi High and Nishi High. Eventually, he and the rest of the gang reassured her that they all still consider her their comrade and to come visit them again. When she does come visit again during the summer, she spends the first day with Sakurada, believing the gang members would be unhappy to see her. He is shocked and deeply hurt by this and ignores her the days after only to be confronted by Mafuyu herself. He eventually challenges her to an ice shaving contest which ends with him having a heat stroke and revealing that he was simply hurt because he had wanted to be the first person Mafuyu went to when she came back. It is unknown whether this was simply possessiveness as a friend and/or former subordinate to a leader to whom he greatly admired or whether he meant this in a more intimate manner.

Yūto Maizono (舞苑 誘人 Maizono Yūto?)

A Higashi High second year now third year and number 3 within Mafuyu's old gang (when she was Banchou), now number 2. A self-proclaimed M (masochist), he often tries to get Mafuyu to take her anger out on him (or others, for that matter). He meets Hayasaka and Okegawa one day while trying to visit Mafuyu and deliver some cookies made by Yamashita. He, like the rest of Mafuyu's old gang, deeply respects and admires Mafuyu despite her no longer being the Banchou and has told Hayasaka that it had been difficult for him to adjust to life without her.

Kotobuki Ōkubo (大久保 寿 Ōkubo Kotobuki?)

A kind boy with extremely bad luck. A third year in Higashi High. He has a good relationship with Kangawa Minato, Kouhei's younger sister. He once went camping with Maizono Yuuto and got caught in a rainstorm. In recent chapters, It seems that he has gain better luck.

Takumi Yamashita (山下 匠 Yamashita Takumi?)

A cooking genius. He is one of the loyal followers of Mafuyu's past gang. Once made character-cookies supposedly be delivered by Maizono to Mafuyu but ended up received by Hayasaka and Okegawa.

Nishi High[edit]

Asahi Sakurada (桜田 旭 Sakurada Asahi?)

The 'Banchou' of Nishi High, a rival school to Mafuyu's old school (Higashi High). He is known to be very clumsy despite being banchou (Mafuyu's only memory of him were his heart pattern boxers the day he challenged her and fell). He tricked her by cross-dressing and pretending to be attacked before kidnapping her. This plan, however, fails in the end. Despite being a klutz, his gang members understand him well and love him despite this, often surrounding him in fights and protecting him from attacks. He has, however, shown that when pushed to the edge he will show great leadership skills and bravery.
