It's an enjoyble enough read. It's quite short and the humor may not be for everyone. The listed word count is a bit deceptive. It achieves this by not using standard looping techniques/if statements for choices and writing out whole bits of conversations over again.

I thought this was gonna be about a sensei that trains fighters or something. This story could have easily been called Life of an English teacher in Japan. The story was very realistic, almost to the point of boredom. The ending telling me to restart was just weird; this story was different from other choose your own adventure games. While somewhat bland and not a very fun game to play at all: the book itself is written well and it has good dialogue.

Very fun little game. Definitely doesn't take itself seriously, so keep that in mind going in. This game is lighthearted and does some original things with the CoG format. Great low-pressure game, although this one isn't everyone's cup of tea. Again, if you're looking for an immersive gaming experience, look at other CoGs; however, if you want something unique and fun, A Sensei's Story is a great way to pass a couple afternoons.
