A drama on problematic high school students. I watched this drama because of Massu!!! =) And I loved it... HIM, i mean. PLEASE watch this! Especially all the Massu scenes. =x
-People from NEWS-
Masuda Takahisa: YAY!!! He acted by the name of "Kouta" in this series. One of the four. =D Look out for MOST of him in episode 2! He's someone who tends to keep everything to himself and doesn't want to trouble anyone. Helpful and kind. And he's sooo in love with one of his classmates! His dream is to goto Africa~ Masuda-san wa kakoii desu ne!!!
Tegoshi Yuya: A cool guy who loves to swim, but was forced to stop when he had an injury on his arm. Thus, joined the bad company and created some mischief. But he was back to himself after some "counseling"... TegoxMassu fell for the same person!

Well, interesting.. funny sometimes.. I didn't like Tegoshi's character much. It looked dead, no smiles, barely any talks, he was like an abondoned cat. It was disappointing :/. Masuda was better, but he absolutely got a lot to learn about acting, it looked dumb in some scenes. He's still new though ^_^.
As for the lead male actor, Katsunori, playing as Gounda Tetta, he was pretty good and I kind of liked him...
As for the plot, it was kind of.. unspecial. The same teacher-saves-stupid-class.. Nothing unusual.
The soundtrack was okay ^_^.
About recommendations, I wouldn't say this is a must-see, but it's a series you can watch if you don't have anything else to see at the moment, or something.
Looking forward for more serious dramas with Masuda and Tegoshi~.

This is a very boring school drama. The kids are boring, they have no personality and are like cardboard renditions of past school dramas. I don't find myself rooting for any of them at all despite all their problems.
And sad to say, while I enjoy the two of them when they are performing with their group, I found the acting of the two NewS idol members to be really stiff especially Tegoshi Yuya. Though the genki-ness of Massu's character is a tad better that the coolness that Tegoshi is trying to pull off but failed.
This drama has no charisma at all.

Overall its not a BAD dorama... tough its far from beign a good one... there r good aspects in Gachibaka! But most of times it fails to entertainm the viewer. =^^= For those who liked Gokusen, GTO.. Gachibaka its just the same... no innovations whatsoever. But the main plot and casting were better in Gokusen>O... so even if u LOVED those 2... u still have high chances of disliking Gachibaka!
BtW.. the ending is worst than GTO's.... I really hated the ending... its just... Stupid...

This was quite bad IMO... I made myself finish the entire series (the fast forward button helped a lot) because I wanted to see the Tego-Massu combi in action. I can struggle to live with recycled storylines but the lines and the execution is terrible. The lead actor who is the 'inspirational' teacher is terrible and has zero charisma. The secondary teacher characters are pointless. Overall, it feels like a very low budget and poorly executed series.

In the beginning it seemed like another typical young sensei trying to change a bad class to good.. which it was (lol) kinda.. except this time its a bunch of rich kids (kinda) in an elite school. The extent of always thinking of Koshin first kinda pissed me off, but then reputation in society is always considered more important. The acting was great, I loved the boxing sensei x landlord relationship its so sweet, they are very cute together lol

I never got past the 2nd episode of this drama. It was almost painful for me to watch ><" After watching awesome school dramas like Kinpachi Sensei (6), Gokusen, GTO, i couldn't watch this drama anymore. I could tell what they were trying to do, and i didn't think i could watch it. I wish the storyline would've been more original, because i would've really liked to watch Tengonyan and Massu acting. Maybe i've gotten really picky?

My thoughts on this one were, another school j-drama. The acting by Tomoka Kurokawa was great, and she played a good part in it. The other girl Ai Takabe also did a good acting job, as well as a few other students and the lead male, Takahashi Katsunori. An ok j-drama. The ending was not as predictable as i thought, but could tie in to a sequel, but might not be as good as this one if they do a sequel.

If you haven't seen GTO or Gokusen, you'll probably love this drama. Yes, it is very similar to those 2, but as itself it's good.
A good thing there are a few episodes not fully based on teacher saving the student of the week.
Yes, there is a guy with the "babyface I don't give a shit about anything, except my cool hairstyle" look. You may want to strangle a few characters, but it's not bad. :P

It follows the typical "lost rebellious students" to "inspired goal orientated students" plot and since I have seen two really good dramas that carries the same plot, this doesn't really compare. But it was quite a nice drama to watch, tegomass is quite cute and I love how deep masuda's voice is :). Watch if you're a fan, or if you want to watch something light :)

The male version of Goukusen. I liked the first ep dispite that the plot is a typical school drama. Yuya looked older and really handsome in the drama. The rating is a shame, and so is the plot. The episodes down the roads ain't that great in my opinion, but it's still nice to see the two members of NEWS in the same drama together.

The protagonist is doinga nice job. The comedy bit is satisfactory yet the student(& their problems) bit has been lackluster. The student cast is rather weak and there is an ongoing line of romance within the class (which is not too common for similar show, not that it is applauding)

Not that terrible...probably can be classified as one of those school dramas that try SO hard to mimic the better ones like Gokusen and GTO. Hardly any real storyline, lacks emotional intensity and nothing near as good as Gokusen, but I've got a soft spot for tomoka (kanachan)...

Very disappointing. Overused school teacher storyline, weak writers and stereotypical students = train wreck. If it wasn't for Tegoshi Yuya or Masuda Takahisa, I wouldn't have continued watching this. Here's to hoping their next drama roles will be more rewarding than this.

Complete rip-off of Gokusen and GTO plotlines - practically no originality or creativity demonstrated. Acting was OK with no particular performances that really stood out. In general, very disppointed with the lack of new ideas in the already very crowded school jdorama set.

Bon bah aucun interet. C'est pas desagreable a regarder mais bon, entre les gamins qui savent pas jouer, le scenario inexistant et le professeur qui est loin d'avoir la puissance d'une yankumi ou d'un onizuka, ben ca donne un truc pas terrible au final.

I love the teacher and student theme & NEWS. haha. Very similar drama to Gokusen & GTO. But i guess it is very different in many ways. The issues in the drama is more recent. I really like yuuko~ she is very cute and her problem touched me =)

a dorama that try to formulate the success of gokusen which i feel that they are far from successful. it seems like that the ending was done in a hurry and there isnt much of an ending after the climax of the drama.... aww... this dorama sucks....
|19. ||Comments by ryouji [Rating: 2/10]|
giving this drama a 2/10 cause this was so B.O.R.I.N.G!! i decided to dropped this drama after episode 4 cause i thought that it will grow but i thought it wrong the story was still the same.. the same thing happen in every episode!! urrrggghhh..

Embarrassingly stupid man stuck in a cliche role. The NewS boys were the only thing that kept me watching to see what the heck they were going to do. Mediocre at best, downright dull in its clicheness at worst. Reminds me too much of GTO.

really good show!! nice cast, nice plot... a little over done with the whole new teacher gets a class of horrible delinquents and teaches them proper values and gets them to graduate but still nice!! massu and tego fans MUST watch this!!
|22. ||Comments by xhidex33 [Rating: 6/10]|
Just another version of GTO/Gokusen etc... one of those gakuen doramas.
The female students are amazingly annoying. Airheads, stupid, and loud.
Some of the stories are nice, like the part of the night club "Juliet" (YAOH~ ha)

Just watched the first episode and it was laaaaame. Maybe I did watch too many teacher-doramas but this one was sooo much of "lets-try-to-be-like-gto-and-gokusen" that I couldn't stand watch another ep.

|26. ||Comments by raynawashere [Rating: 8/10]|

|27. ||Comments by minitotoro [Rating: 8/10]|

If you are searching for a new story this is not the right drama...it reminds a lot Gokusen! but all I have to say is that here there's the cutest Massu I've ever seen! Something more is needed!?
|29. ||Comments by tkarmina28 [Rating: 7/10]|
It was, at the most, cute. But the storyline was a copy of Gokusen and Gokusen 2, so I don't think this would be a favourite of mine. TegoMasu's there..can't really complain. Enough said ^_^

rather weak story plot .. has many similar parts with those common sch dramas shown in the past .. but overall , it's quite entertaining if u don't compare it with other dramas ..
