I My Me! Strawberry Eggs is a Japanese anime television series that premiered in 2001 on the WOWOW network in Japan. The show is a romantic comedy-drama that follows the story of Amawa Hibiki, a talented young teacher who disguises himself as a woman in order to find work at Seito Sannomiya Private School, a prestigious all-girls school that refuses to hire men. The show not only explores the challenges that come with Hibiki's deception but also showcases the daily lives of the students and teachers at Seito Sannomiya.

The main character, Hibiki, is voiced by Yuji Kishi. He is a skilled and dedicated teacher who has a passion for helping students reach their full potential. However, when he is unable to find a job due to his gender, he decides to crossdress and apply for a teaching job at Seito Sannomiya under the alias "Izumi." Despite being a new teacher, Izumi quickly becomes popular among the students due to her kind and caring nature. She especially gains a close relationship with one of her students, Fuko Kuzuha, voiced by Akeno Watanabe, who struggles to fit in with her classmates.

As Hibiki tries to keep up the façade of being a woman, he faces various challenges, such as hiding his masculinity and navigating the complicated relationships among the school staff. But as he continues to excel as a teacher and form meaningful connections with his students, he also finds himself developing romantic feelings towards the school nurse, Akira Okura, voiced by Kujira. However, their relationship isn't without its complications as Akira struggles with her own romantic issues.

I My Me! Strawberry Eggs is not just about Hibiki's deception, but also provides interesting character dynamics among the supporting cast. For example, there is the school's principal, Sumire Nozomi, voiced by Sumi Shimamoto, who is a stern and traditionalist figure, and Yui Kurosawa, voiced by Mikako Takahashi, who is a stuck-up senior student who initially picks on Fuko but later opens up to her. Additionally, there is the friendly science teacher Takezawa, voiced by Yuji Ueda, who mostly serves as a comedic relief, and the tough PE teacher, Fuko's homeroom teacher, and a love interest for Izumi/Ibuki, Yasuo Aoki, voiced by Katashi Ishizuka.

Throughout the show, there are various storylines that allow the audience to explore the students' personal lives and the relationships between the school staff. Some of these include Fuko's struggles to make friends, Kuzuha's relationship with her father, and Akira's complicated romance. Additionally, the show also touches on topics such as gender identity, societal norms, and the pursuit of dreams.

I My Me! Strawberry Eggs, with its impressive voice cast, engaging characters, and heartwarming storyline, was well-received among viewers and critics. While some viewers found the cross-dressing aspect to be frivolous, many appreciated its refreshing take on gender roles and how it tackled complex emotional issues. The show's themes, such as the importance of love, acceptance, and individuality, remain relevant and continue to resonate with audiences to this day.

In conclusion, I My Me! Strawberry Eggs is a charming and poignant anime that explores the challenges of identity and acceptance in a lighthearted manner. With its memorable characters, romantic plot lines, and wholesome themes, the show appeals to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
