Jigoku Sensei Nūbē (地獄先生ぬ〜べ〜, lit. "Hell Teacher Nūbē") is a Japanese manga series written by Shō Makura and illustrated by Takeshi Okano. It was serialized in Shueisha's shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump from August 1993 to May 1999, with its chapters collected in 31 tankōbon volumes. The series follows Meisuke Nueno, aka Nūbē, the homeroom teacher for Class 5–3 at Dōmori Elementary. More than a teacher, however, he is a skilled exorcist, protecting the town of Dōmori from supernatural threats with strength borrowed from a powerful demon sealed in his left hand—a technique he calls the Demon's Hand. A 49-episode anime television series by Toei Animation was broadcast on TV Asahi from April 1996 to August 1997. The anime resulted in three movies and three original video animation (OVA) episodes.
A spin-off story for Izuna Hazuki the itako-girl, Reibaishi Izuna: The Spiritual Medium, was serialized in Oh Super Jump and later in Super Jump from July 2007 to October 2011. A sequel to the spin-off, titled Reibaishi Izuna: Ascension started in November 2011 and finished in June 2016. In May 2014, a Jigoku Sensei Nūbē direct sequel has started with the premise of ten years having passed, with Kyoko becoming a teacher at the Dōmori Elementary and Nūbē returning to the school from Kyushu. The manga finished in December 2018. A sequel titled Jigoku Sensei Nūbē S started in Saikyō Jump in August 2018.
By August 2023, the Jigoku Sensei Nūbē manga (including its spin-offs) had over 28 million copies in circulation.
