Oku-sama wa Joshi Kōsei (おくさまは女子高生?, lit. "My Wife is a High School Girl) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiyoko Kobayashi centering on a couple whose age difference makes it difficult for them to further their relationship, as one is a high school girl and the other is her physics teacher. The series first began as a manga serialized in Young Jump published by Shueisha. A video game based on the series was released for the PlayStation 2 and the Dreamcast. Later, the manga was adapted into an anime series that aired in Japan between July 3 and September 25, 2005, containing 13 episodes, with each episode composed of two mini-episodes.
Asami Onohara (小野原 麻美 Onohara Asam?) is a seventeen-year-old high-school student (voiced by Ayako Kawasumi) with a secret which has not been revealed to anyone: she is already married. Her husband, Kyosuke Ichimaru (市丸 恭介 Ichimaru Kyōsuke?) (voiced by Mitsuaki Madono), is a physics teacher in the same high school as her. However, even though they are officially a married couple, Asami's father forbids them to have any sexual contact until after Asami has graduated. Asami has to hide the fact that she is married to Kyosuke while trying desperately to further their relationship, and it does not help when there are so many interferences and obstacles from her father and other third parties.
