While transferring schools Shigeoka Kakeru (Shigeoka Daiki) meets Hikari (Kawashima Umika) at the entrance. Soon after he is thrown into a ring with six other transfer students: a boxer (Hamada Takahiro), a wanna-be samurai (Kiriyama Akita), a narcissist (Fuji Ryusei), a scaredy-cat (Kamiyama Tomohiro), a genius (Nakama Junta) and a yankee (Kotaki Nozomu). For some reason the seven are forced to fight one another, in a “transfer student fight-off”. The group soon decide to run away, but are soon captured, and realize that all have the same first name: Kakeru.
After a turbulent first day, they are introduced to their principle, who tells them that they are part of the “Blazing Transfer Student”-mission, where they have to transfer to problem schools and fix the problems from within… But why are they all there in the first place, and how big of a coincident is that they all share the first name?
When I heard that all seven Johnny’s WEST were going to star in a drama together, I was so excited. These guys are so funny together, so I was sure it would be fun watch. And I was right: it was so silly that it became hilarious. As Japanese drama goes, this one is most defiantly one of those you’d call “wacky” or just plain ridiculous. But again, since it’s a Japanese drama, it really embraced the silliness and became a good drama to watch, with really nice acting. The storyline is not too confusing, and it actually does keep you watching… kind a.
All in all, a funny/silly drama that isn’t that time consuming.
