The blog of Gow (Tannicus), fiction and ramblings of the Coyote.
Okay I said I would make it formal and all proper like but forget it this round!!

Anyways, I have watched episodes 1-5 (by the SARS fansubbing group) of Gokusen Live Action.

Gokusen is based on the Anime which is based on the manga and is good I must say.

For those not in the know Anime is Japanese Animation and Manga are the Japanese Comic Books.

Synopsis from Anime News Network

Fresh out of college, Kumiko "Yankumi" Yamaguchi becomes a math teacher at Shirokin high school. Unfortunately for her, she's assigned by the school board as the homeroom teacher for class 3-D, which happens to be the class of delinquent students. When the class attempts to make a living hell out of Yankumi's career, they fail as her persistence and aggression gain her respect. However, little does anyone in the school know that Yankumi is actually heir to the Oedo Group - one of Tokyo's most powerful yakuza clans. If anyone finds out that Yankumi is a yakuza member, her career as a teacher could be in jeopardy.

Sort of like GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) with a twist and little bit more comedy.

Overall good show so far and apparently a good enough show in Japan that they even are into season 2 (Gokusen 2).

Later for now,

Not that anybody will reply but hey one never knows!!
