This reminded me a lot of Gokusen. Not necessarily because of the story but how its told. Its not really one storyline till the end but each episode has its own little story concentrating on one side character (...which is being helped by the female lead).

I really liked the idea of one girl being in a school full of boys.

(I mean what girl doesn't? ^.^) Sometimes it read more was cute and sometimes it was a little dramatic (ok, maybe sometimes a little too dramatic). The music was catchy, the acting was great and the boys were cute. This drama has a special atmosphere. You know, when you watch those (american) movies where the lead character dramatically gives a Speech/Explanation in front of an audience/other lead character towards the end and the audience so moved by his/her words that they all cheer/kiss or whatever. This kind of atmosphere leads you through all 9 episodes. Not much romance but a lot of "fighting"-attitude, so if you don't mind a little cheesiness on the side, you should give this a try. I did and I didnt regret it.

It is a good drama that gives you morals and teachings of staying together, friendly and happily with everyone. It teaches you faith and how strong the power of just trying something out without thinking of giving up or what the results will be like. Also, if you're in a situation like Takei Emi (in this drama), you can gain some tips from her through out these 9 episodes! :P
The story's read more the normal high school plot. Cast is good and the music's less but compensating.
For me it is a one time watch. It makes you happy and realize that you can't just sit back and miss the awesome school life because your friends and ambitions make you realize what you want to pursue in future :)
Overall, its a drama of hope, goodness, faith, dreams, aspirations, learning and never backing down. A light drama and easy to finish.

The main leads are the same.
Also the male leads story is quite similar and the character of the female lead.

Both dramas focus on a girl who perseveres, and has the help of a bunch of boys to do so. But Ganbatte Ikmasshoi has more girlfriends.

    love the soundtrack the music not the songs......nao kawainess + that upbeat music = KAWAI LOL. Yuta kanai if i remember correctly did an emotional scene in ikigami movie where he sings then died, Im shock that he is good at comedy too.

    cute story and good development, i like how she is the connection of the group until the end, and the one that they made at the last epi is so cool and the candle scene too..

    This is kind of one of the few dramas I like to rewatch, I love the setting and the actors/+plus the main actress. I almost kind of hope in the future some time there will be a season 2.

    I went into this drama thinking it wouldn't be anything too special, but would at least be entertaining. Boy did I under estimate it! I'm on the last episode now and I absolutely love it. ^^ It's also introduced me to a lot of talented actors that I now wish to watch in other dramas. lol
