General Overview: School delinquents roam freely in Kyokuran High School with no intervention from the teachers and school staff until the day Gouta Araki and his co-homeroom teacher, the Kamen teacher, Juumonji Hayato arrived. With Juumonji Hayato's supplementary studies, Gouta Araki and Juumonji Hayato seeks to reform the school into a better one.
Category Ratings: (1-10 scale)
Very good art work but I feel as it could be taken to another level. Some backgrounds in certain scenes could use a bit more detail. Great use of black ink and white paint. Fujisawa Tohru is definitely skilled as an artist though he needs to improve his skills.
Mediocre. Kamen Teacher reminds me of GTO though much more aggressive. A very straight forward plot that leaves little room for second guessing. Since the manga is still in it's infancy practically, I wonder how the Kamen Teacher might reform the school, and how effective are the supplementary studies?
The designs for the most part are mediocre. The real interesting pair would be Gouta Araki and Juumonji Hayato. Since there are just seven chapters out, it's going to be interesting on how these two progress and what are revealed about the two.
Staying in school doesn't better a person unless a person really desire to better themselves. Education is a very important part of a person's success. For others, they have to learn things the hard way. Let's see if Juumonji Hayato could knock some sense into those delinquents.
I personally believe that if anyone wants to be the future, they have to better understand that, one, these kids are our future, two, you screw up teaching these kids and our future is screwed up, and, three, if you don't realize that, you should never become a teacher.
Kamen teachers? That's quite a fresh idea. I suppose I should re-state refreshing idea. The idea of Kamen Riders and school delinquents isn't quite new. Combining Kamen Riders and school, you get a very fascinating combination. It might be said that the Kamen Teachers battle delinquency to save the future. Here's for our future!
Some kids just don't learn or give in and it takes a certain people to fill in those shoes to make these kids learn. Kamen Teacher seems a bit cliche but seeing how they might reform the school is going to be a fun ride. Also, I would like to note that the author/artists of Kamen Rider is the same as the one for GTO.
For those looking for action and something simple, Kamen Teacher is a fairly good read.

great manga and great review.
though i think the plot should've gotten higher points :P
maybe i like the plot better than you do? =x
There's a plot?
The important thing is that the readers enjoy it.
And yes, there is a plot GGpX. Simple as it may be.
That's probably the only manga that we scanlate and I find REALLY LAME.
And I agree with GGpX on the plot matter... at least I can't see through it - it's a mystery :x But as you said the readers enjoy it, so...
Anyway, if I had to assess it I'd say overall: 5 (out of 10) the only good points of this series are the art and the fights (though they could be better, too).
I think after all of those shojo mangas, it was so refreshing to see a gangster that actually looks like a gangster, and not pretty boy in disguise. I look forward to this manga, becasue GTO was so good.
great manga anybody know were i can find the raws
