35-year-old Narumi Ryosuke is an elite salaryman who works for Kashimatsu Co., a general trading company. He turned the loss-making operations of a subsidiary in Aomori around with outstanding sales ability. One day, he is ordered by his boss to come back to Tokyo. His next appointment is to be the principal of Kyomeikan High School, a private high school, just as he is on the verge of advancing in his career. This is a demotion so to speak. Kyomeikan High School, which the company operates, has been in the red every year and Narumi is in charge of rehabilitating the school. Despite his bewilderment and confusion, he has no choice but to abide by the decision made by his company. Narumi confers with the teachers together with vice principal Kashiwagi Fumio after taking over as principal. However, none of them seem to have a sense of crisis. The teachers including Mashiba Chihiro distrust the young Narumi who knows nothing about the classroom. His initial conclusion is to first cut costs to turn the school profitable with the business logic from his past experiences. Then he will gather many candidates for the entrance examination. To do that, he will have to raise the level of the current students. Which means he must change the attitudes of the teachers. However, all sorts of obstacles stand in his way.

This dorama gets a full 10/10 for its many merits (very interesting plot, beautiful message, great performances by the leads - Aoi Yu and Sakurai Sho - and by part of the supporting cast - most of all, Kazama Morio and Kinami Haruka - btw, too bad Morikawa Aoi's role is so small T__T) and despite its defects (the naiveté of some details - active learning is indeed a great tool, but it's not so easy to implement it, particularly in a high school environment, as shown here; the ridiculously terrible performances given by Arakawa Yoshiyoshi - the guy can "play" only ONE character, and that's what he does *every single time* in *every single drama*...SO ANNOYING!!! - and by Takashima Masanobu - compared to him, even Dick Dastardly from "Wacky Races" was a credible, realistic and sober villain!!! >__<
