Nozomi Entertainment describes Please Teacher!:
Kei Kusanagi isn't your typical 15-year-old high school student. He's actually an 18-year-old with a rare disorder that puts him into what he calls, a "standstill"! When he was younger, this disorder left him in a deep coma which stunted his growth for three years. Mizuho Kazami isn't your typical teacher, either. She's actually an alien sent by the Galaxy Federation to observe the Earth! As the sole human being with knowledge of Ms. Kazumi's secret, Kei must... marry her?! Homework, dating, and a gorgeous wife - going to school has never been quite this fun!
Nozomi Entertainment describes Please Twins!:
Maiku Kamishiro grew up in an orphanage with no history of his family or of his past. Left with only a childhood picture of himself and another person in front of a house, he believes that the other person in the picture is his long-lost twin sister. Upon discovering his old home, two young girls show up on his doorstep one day both claiming to be his long lost sister. Maiku's life is about to be turned upside down. With two pretty girls living under the same roof as him, how will Maiku be able to keep his mind on school and work while trying to figure out which one of these girls is his sister and which one is the love of his life?
The series first aired in 2002 and 2003, respectively. Bandai Entertainment previously released both series in North America with English dubs.
