Synopsis:

Sakaki "Tornado" Makio (Nagase Tomoya), the tough 27-year-old wakagashira (young master) of the Kantou Sharp Fang family loves alcohol, fighting, women and pudding. However, he is a high school drop-out and by academic standards, pretty dumb. He is illiterate, extremely bad at math and cannot even fully write his name in kanji. His father (Ichimura Masachika), who is also the family's oyabun (boss), worries for the future of his son and his organization as he wishes for Makio to succeed him. He decides to force his son to return to high school to receive his diploma. He asks an old friend who happens to be the principal (Iwaki Koichi) of a nearby school to admit Makio. If Makio doesn't graduate, the position of boss will be given to his younger brother Mikio (Kikawada Masaya).
Furthermore, he must pose as a 17-year-old during school hours and in the presence of any classmates or teachers outside of school. If his cover is blown, it would be the end of his high school career as well as his hopes to become boss. Things start out rough and tough as Makio's violent temper is tested. As the lessons and days go by he learns there is much more to school than just tests and studying.

My Review:
This drama displayed excellent potential at first, but sadly lost some of its spark as the series progressed. I have to say though, this was by far one of the funniest ones I've ever seen. The exaggerated story and the humor is mostly what keeps this drama interesting and entertaining. I really liked the character development and how it brought a distinct change about a once reluctant and pessimistic classroom. Tomoya's acting was quite good, but I can't say the same for some of the class mates and teachers. Also, the theme of "cherishing ones youth" is easy to relate with, which brings up our own memories as we watch Makio make the best out of his schooling experience. Unfortunetly, the fight scenes/gang clashes were rather dull, and there were no, or rather weak, twists/climaxes to the story. Even so, I would say it was rather brave of the producers to try and mix Yazuka and school life together. Overall, this series turned out pretty good.

8/10 - A must watch if you're looking for a good laugh.

ROFLMAO I absolutely died from laughing watching My Boss My Hero.
xDDDDDDD
I recommend this drama to everybody! It's just way too funny. I agree that the begining is the best, especially the parts about PUDDING. The story gets kind of cheesy or dull sometimes but Makio's expressions are just funny as hell. Laughing
Plus Sorafune is a super great song. Love No reason not to watch this. Boogie

I totally recommend this drama, its SO GOOD. I watched it at the beginning because of Aragaki Yui...but then the storyline itself was great! I was laughing and crying throughout the series, some of scenes were just hilirious.

Besides being funny, the drama had some touching points too. Especially towards the end, its totally touching. Tongue And I agree...haha, Makio's expressions were priceless!! He really exaggerated, but you don't find it annoying.

I would say this drama deserves a 9/10!

Another well-rated dorama... Looks like I should try it.. As soon as IŽll finish 1 Litre of Tears... It would be nice change, because 1LoT is not so laughable... Smile So you recommend it, right?

I don't know if I'm allowed to post this, but if you want the first 10 episodes of My Boss My Hero with excellent English translations, register and go here: PSPISO. They are for the PSP, but you can easily watch them with Quicktime.
