Leroy Douresseaux of Comic Book Bin felt that the stories in the anthology were too short, wishing some could have been expanded to their own volumes. Jennifer Dunbar, writing for PopCultureShock, felt that manga like Cause of My Teacher "reinforce most of the negative stereotypes of the genre", and disliked the student-teacher theme of the anthology. Johanna Draper Carlson felt that the book had poor characterization and "little plot", suggesting it is aimed at people who have a fetish for "guys with glasses", teachers or ninjas. Carlson felt that the book was a "waste of time" for anyone else.
