Naoko (Uchiyama Rina) is the new homeroom teacher for class 2-3, a class that doesn’t trust teachers and who teachers have given up on teaching. There is a secret hidden in the school, the secret about why the students don’t trust any teachers. Naoko, the happy energetic teacher is very different from the rest of the teachers. She will give her everything to make her students happy and enjoy the time they have together in high school, but will she be able to break through to the students and make them trust a teacher again?

The drama had me right away. I usually like high school dramas but I can’t watch the same story again. However this one was different in its own way. The teacher couldn’t bond with her student right away and really had to fight for it till the end. She wasn’t just preaching but really tried to convince her students. It’s a quite serious drama, it’s not a comedy but really tries to deal with the problems. It takes the student’s side and really wants us to understand why the students cant trust anyone. They feel like only they can protect themselves and no one else understands them or wants them their best. I wasn’t bored at any part of the drama it was interesting watching. Want a school drama/teacher fighting (lol) then this is the one. Really nice.

☆☆☆☆ / 4½ out of 5 stars

Bunji's Verdict
This was one of my first, Japanese dramas ever watched, and I loved it. I loved it so much that I think I re-watched it 5 times, which I never do when it comes to dramas. When I started watching dramas, especially Japanese, I just watched High School dramas, meaning I’ve basically watched almost all of them. Out of all, this one was one of my fave, even beating Gokusen.
The drama is different than like Gokusen or even Misaki Number One, it’s not humor based at all. No fun scenes at all, but still catchy. It’s very recommendable, ask Jenji :P
