“In the year 20xx, corporal punishment and guidance by teachers was banned. Since then, teachers lost power. Schools became lawless. In order to correct this situation, the government put an educational reform program into effect. In order to correct the delinquents, to control everything with fear through power, special teachers were dispatched throughout the whole nation. They are called: Kamen Teacher.” (Intro of drama)
Araki Gouta (Fujigaya Taisuke) is a teacher with a high spirit. At his first day at work, he is met by teachers who refuse to get involved with their students and a class full of delinquents that beat him up, but that doesn’t bring him down, since he firmly believes that his students are good deep down. He is told that in the very class they are a group called M4: ‘Money Man’ aka Bon (Kyomoto Taiga) a rich brat who uses money for popularity, ‘Mad Man’ aka Kotaro (Maeda Goki) who threatens and blows up all the time, ‘Ice Man’ aka Ryota (Yanagi Shuntaro) an expressionless guy who everyone fears and ‘Shadow Man’ aka Shishimaru (Kishi Yuta) who works behind the scenes. Besides those 4, there is the school top, Takehara Kinzo (Kikuchi Fuma).
When the students can’t be faced by teachers, Gouta secretly them on as Kamen Teacher…
Lol, I started this because I was in the mood for high school dramas, and this had delinquents in it, so I went what the hell. But that thing with the ‘Kamen Teacher’ was a bit bizarre. I liked it honestly, and I was looking forward every single week to watch it. It is short, and it is really silly to some extent, but that’s the charm I guess. It is in the same category as Sugarless, like those C rated dramas that doesn’t really have the screen play nor the decent story plot, but manages to make you happy. Or me at least.
So to sum up, I can’t really recommend it, but if you liked the manga this won’t be a waste of time :)
