Gokusen 1

Anyone else watch this?

In a nutshell, it's about a young female teacher, Kumiko Yamaguchi, fresh out of college who is out to reform the roughest class in her high school no matter what it takes. Oh, and did I mention she's the heir to a yakuza family?

Yeah, it sounds like a rip-off of GTO, but I was curious so I watched the first episode and the dynamic is quite a bit different. Whereas Onizuka would always act the badass, Kumiko pretends to be all innocent and polite but every now and then she slips up and starts talking with yakuza slang. She's like a cross between Onizuka and Sousuke from FMP, but she definitely knows what's going on, as opposed to the other two.

It seems like an amusing show so far, so I'll keep watching it.

I'll have to watch it. I downloaded it, skimmed through it, and it didn't seem that interesting. However, if Sam Buca approves, I'll give it a shot :up:
