And you thought your teens were bad... Oresama Teacher Vol. 1-3

The Oresama Teacher manga series by Izumi Tsubaki is a highly entertaining manga that has both girl and guy appeal (no easy feat in the manga world).  Oresama follows Kurosaki Mafuyu, former teen delinquent, whose mother has sent her to a new high school where she is determined to reform herself into the picture of femininity and virtue.  But with a new friends like Hayasaka-kun and a homeroom teacher like Saeki Takaomi, Mafuyu's life is bound to be anything but ladylike.

Filled with unrequited love, fighting and a strange fascination for a person who is not what he seems, Oresama is a light read perfect for someone looking to escape everyday dull-dom for an hour.  The series is currently ongoing, so who knows how the threads will come together or who will end up together?
