1. Better than GTO in my opinion [Rating: 10/10]
This drama has much better "lessons" than GTO. Some of them are very very wise and deep. Granted it might not be as crazy as GTO but still it has its moving and entertaining moments. First 3-4 episodes are a bit slow but afterwards the pace picks up quickly.
WATCH IT! You won't regret it a single bit.

Quite a good show.... and OMG!! They did what i never expected to watch in a school dorama.. that was pretty nice!
The casting was so-so... (im not a big fan of Oda Yuji) but 2 actors really steals the show... Gaku~kun and Yoshitaka Yuriko. Hope to see Yoshitaka in a main role in the future (since its almost impossible for Gaku...)
The plot is the same as another school doramas (teacher help students stuff) and it was pretty interesting. I would say that Taiyo to Umi has nothing to do with Gokusen or GTO... more like the total opposite of Dragon Zakura..... Nways.. a good dorama.. thumbs up!

Only seen one episode so far and I found all the characters to be very unlikable. The story and many of the characters are also completely unbelievable. I'd give examples but I don't want to spoil, let's just say the rival in ep 1 was very poorly exaggerated. Maybe I'll get back to it later on but likely not.

Has some compelling moments, the music works really great at all times, the beach scenery is very pleasant to the eye. It's just at I feel that the almighty teacher theme is way overused. I enjoyed it, the later episodes improve the overall impression of the series.

another boring high school drama whit nothing special in it. GTO in worse in fact except that kitagawa keiko is 183839393 times prettier than natsushima!i never take care about the music inside movies or drama but the music in this one is sheet. nothing fits.

Yeah man! After you watched this, you think right NOW you should go out and live your life right! Excellent (for this dorama type mandatory) "ending lecture". Main Actress exactly my type ;) But unfortunately a slow, repetitive start.

Boring, pointless teacher show. Too many of these. There was no need for another one. There were some good actors in it but the whole show just didn't do anything new or different or noteworthy.
8. Comments by aoiharu [Rating: ?/10]
still watching... i like the school setting and beach thing... story-wise it's okay, typical teacher solves school problem stuff...
But Oda looks kinda worn out...
9. Comments by stardope [Rating: 5/10]

I'm a huge fan of school dramas and Ohda Yuuji, but I couldn't deal with the confused mess that was episode one. Perhaps I'll come back to this one...
11. Comments by Bbbut [Rating: 4/10]
average - the story is all over the place: from GTO to love triangle to suicide issues to tragic death and back to GTO
12. Comments by wanderingfish7 [Rating: 7/10]
Compared to GTO and Rookies, this one is really soso. I could finished it because of Oda Yuji. He is a good actor.

I liked it, my very first dorama i have ever seen without being aware of it...^^ (mhmm i want to go back to japan)
14. Comments by gaston [Rating: 6/10]
Similar to GTO, Gokusen, Joou no Kyoushitsu, Dragon Zakura ... just not as good -- the message wasn't as clear.
15. Comments by oldasianguy [Rating: 8/10]
On par with some of the other school dramas of the past...capable cast with a creditable plot....

slow at times still good. doesn't bring anything new to school-drama genre tho.

Pretty typical high school drama. The eye candy makes it a lot more watchable.
