Faito, oh!

The story of a young, idealistic teacher who enters Shirokin Gakuen with hopes of making a difference in the students' lives. However, Yamaguchi Kumiko (Nakama Yukie) is in for a rude awakening when she finds that she will be the homeroom teacher of 3-D, the hardest class to maintain in the school. The students have multi-colored hair, sloppy uniforms, and show absolutely no respect to her. The leader of the class, Sawada Shin (Matsumoto Jun) is lazy but shows some interest in Yamaguchi when he notices that she is very different from other teachers. The students try to bully her to make her quit, but their attempts don't get them very far.

What the class and the rest of the school does not know is that Yamaguchi Kumiko is actually the 4th generation heir to the Ooedo Group, a notorious yakuza clan.

I saw Gokusen 2 last year and I loved it! It was hilarious. Yukie, or as I like to call her, Yankumi...was great!

I loved her in Trick, so I knew this was goona be good. That guy from WaT was also in it. The vice principal was so crazy! LOL

This is such an AWESOME J-drama, one of my FAVORITES. Love I adore Yankumi. She's just one of those teachers that you wish you had or will have. I love the first one so much I don't want to watch Gokusen 2...I've read mixed reviews and I don't want it to ruin my Gokusen loving experience. This drama is too funny and always has a nice moral in the end. I just wish that those love-triangles with Yankumi was sorted out. Giggle And I dont' know why they were saying how plain she was when Nakama Yukie is obviously...not, even though I know the manga version of her character isn't the prettiest

That's so bad I never watch this dorama before, and it seems that is quite impossible to download this dorama from ant bt site now.

From the synopsis I think that's a dorama which similar to GTO, and I think this kind of school comedy would attract lots of young teens to watch it. Well, maybe I can try to find this in the Japanese cd stores here. Smile

gokusen was ace. eh? there was a graduation special Surprised ? *runs to d-addicts to search for it*

i like gokusen 2 as well, not as much though... it just seemed like gokusen 1 with a different cast. but yeah, kuma was in it. and i love the ending... i hope they make a gokusen3... they certainly ended it in a way that were going to...


(incidently, that "faito-o" comes from an anime called "attack no 1" which is mentioned in the series. recently, a remake of the classic 80's anime into a j-drama, aired on tv asahi *i think* with ueto aya as the lead. ill make a thread for that here soon. )
