Jun'ichirō: I'm Jun'ichirō Kagami. I'm suffering from YD-itis, a sickness that makes me unable to do anything except what I want to do. Suddenly, I, a NEET and otaku, was forced to become a high school teacher by my little sister Suzune.
Text: An otaku and NEET high school teacher
Jun'ichirō: I had my peaceful life stolen from me, but my life at the academy is restricted by various situations, and my YD-itis goes crazy.
Text: Solving problems with otaku logic!
Jun'ichirō: Don't start thinking that following the rules will help you in society.
Jun'ichirō: New program, Denpa Kyōshi. Starting Saturday April 4 at 5:30 p.m. Now then, let's start class!

The series stars Hiroshi Kamiya as Jun'ichirō Kagami and SKE48 idol group member Rena Matsui as Suzune Kagami. Additional cast includes:

  • Aki Toyosaki as Kōtarō Araki
  • Ayane Sakura as Kisaki Tenjōin/Sachiko Tanaka
  • Azusa Tadokoro as Kiriko Shikishima
  • Rina Hidaka as Kanon Chinami
  • Saori Ōnishi as Makina Momozono
  • Sora Amamiya as Minako Kano
  • Suzuko Mimori as Koyomi Hiiragi

The story centers around Junichirō, a young man obsessed with manga, anime, and games. He was a young genius who published papers in the journals Nature and Science when he was only 17. However, after graduating college, he became a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) absorbed in his anime blog. Unable to watch Kagami throw away his life, his sister Suzune gets him to work at the Ichō Academy she attends. The head of the school's board, Koyomi Hiiragi, assigns Kagami to his new life as a teacher.

Masato Sato (Case Closed episodes eps 333-504) is directing the series with series scripts by Atsushi Maekawa (Hunter × Hunter, Lupin III vs. Detective Conan The Movie) at A-1 Pictures. Isao Sugimoto (Girls und Panzer, The Qwaser of Stigmata II) is designing the characters and Ryuuichi Takada (Dusk maiden of Amnesia, The [email protected]) is composing the music.

Asakura, Natsukawa, and Amamiya are performing the opening theme "Youthful Dreamer" as the unit "TrySail" and idol group Tokyo Performance Doll (The File of Young Kindaichi Returns) is performing the ending theme.

Azuma launched the manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine since late 2011. The Japanese title of the manga literally means "Electromagnetic-Wave Teacher," a reference to the term denpa-kei for people who act bizarrely, such as extreme otaku. The slang was coined from people who claimed their actions were caused by electromagnetic waves (denpa) they received.

Hirofumi Ogura (Black Butler II, The Knight in the Area) already directed two anime commercials for the manga at A-1 Pictures with character designer Tadashi Sakazaki (Zoids/ZERO designer, Black Butler II animation director). Daisuke Ono played Jun'ichirō in the anime TV ads for the manga, and Kana Asumi played the character's sister Suzune.

The television anime will premiere on April 4.
