Half a year has passed and Shirokin Gakuen has closed down. Yamaguchi Kumiko finds herself a teacher of a few young kids who are too young to benefit much from her style of teaching. Through some twist of fate, she is offered a job as a teacher in Kurogin Gakuen.

She ends up becoming the teacher of the delinquent 3D class again. In order to protect her job, she must again hide her true identity, once more — the fact that she is the 4th generation of the Oedo Family, a prominent yakuza group.

StrawBan’s Review:  

85%

The thing that bugged me the most was that the plot was basically copy paste, with different people in a different school. At first. But when you get to know the characters more, it’s not SO similar anymore. Well, it’s still somewhat similar, but you know, it’s not so bad after all.

And here. I must say something about Kame. DAAAAAANG eye candy. Actually, it seems that in order to play in this drama (for the students, I mean), you have to be really good looking! Especially the main parts. Jin is … like … aww cute too xD. And is it a coincidence that they’re both from Kat-Tun?

The ending song, Kizuna, is absolutely a masterpiece. It’s sooooo calming and his voice suits this kind of music so much! Kame, pro actor, pro singer, wow, what more do you need? Yeah, dancing. he actually does dance! (Reference to “The Wallflower / Perfect Girl Evolution / Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge“‘s intro dance … oh boy) I really like this song 😀 Thought I’d emphasis a lot on this, for some reason haha.

On the other hand, I’m really happy that Kuma came back! I was also somewhat expecting something with Jun too, but I guess they changed the cast completely, except for Yankumi’s family and the head teacher (HE’S SO FUNNY LOL! And I like how he’s always getting dissed by her~). I really like watching these kind of stuff, because I personally think it’s really cute and it actually teaches you stuff. And it’s really heartbreaking seeing the group getting separated because of someone’s problem. And you’re like “YESSSSSSS ALLRIGHHTTT!!!” when they fix the problem and get together again xD

For some reason, they give me a feeling of really pro actors. Although they’re all kids. Basically. But like, if you watch carefully, everyone somewhat are all not super genius actors, but seriously. You can feel what they want to act out. No clue how they do it! This was definitely a fun time during my spring break 😛

P.s. Odagiri … makes me think of food … I was literally always eating while watching this, because his name made me hungry. And he’s always there!
