Best Student and Teacher Relationships in Anime

I can’t deny that anime portrays far better relationships between two characters.

You can easily see every emotion anime characters express, including love, anger, hate, etc. All these emotions are put into the anime characters so that people can easily resonate with them and feel connected.

And you know that it works, right?

Amongst all relationships, one of the purest relationships is the student-teacher relationship. Because after parents, it’s only a teacher who wants his students to succeed more than himself.

We all must have once in life fantasized about a student-teacher relationship. But relationships do have their twists. Who knows that there can be romanticism also involved in student teacher relationships.

It is seen as a taboo, but we can’t deny that this kind of relationship does prevail in society. They may be away from the eyes of everybody but they still exist.

Today, we will share the anime that perfectly portrays different types of student and teacher relationships.

When the whole school was on the verge of giving up on the students of Class 3-E, Kuro Sensei didn’t give up. Not only did he not give up on his students, but he also planned fun activities for the kids so that would forget their life troubles.

Kuro Sensei even stood as the pillar of motivation for the students to progress better.

But the students of the Assassination classroom were planning to kill their teacher all this time. It sounds hurtful to me, how about you?

Rock Lee & Might Guy – Naruto

Rock Lee & Might Guy - Naruto

One thing that stands out the most about the Naruto anime is its portrayal of student-teacher relationships. Many ninja teams had sensei’s allotted to them.

Among all of them, Guy Sensei and Rock Lee’s relationship was wholesome. Their relationship was of a sweet and heartwarming nature.

Other ninja students had the ability to wield chakras, but Rock Lee lacked this power. It means that Lee also doesn’t know other ninja techniques like Ninjutsu and Genjutsu.
