Plot synopsis via Crunchyroll:

At first glance Yukishiro Nanako seems like a normal high school girl, but she has a notable eccentricity: instead of speaking, she communicates only through written senryu poetry! This means she expresses herself exclusively in 5-7-5 syllables. To most this might seem like an inconvenience, but for Nanako and her ex-delinquent bestie, Busujima Eiji, it adds to the experience of their high school lives as they run the Literature Club.

Why the hell are you here, Teacher!? (Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!?) is an adaptation of Soborou’s 2015 manga series. The anime is animated by tear-studio and directed by Hiraku Kaneko. The episodes will air on Sundays at 5:50pm BST. The series is also streaming on HIDIVE.

Crunchyroll will be streaming the series in territories United States & Canada, United Kingdom & Ireland, South Africa, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Central, and South America.

Plot synopsis via Crunchyroll:

Ichiro Sato is about as average as a student can get… except for his above-average ability to land himself in totally awkward, intensely risqué situations with his no-nonsense teacher, Kana Kojima! Ichiro has his hands full dealing with these steamy shenanigans and unexpected encounters in the most unlikely places. At least it can’t get any worse, right?
