After watching the first season I wasn't sure how I'd like this one. But I was surprised and found myself actually enjoying this one just as much if not more. One this is for sure - you don't have to watch this series in order. While the story is quite similar to the first season - it's a whole new group of students and therefore new stories, new problems.

While the original Gokusen had popular names such as Matsumoto Jun and Oguri Shun, Gokusen 2 has Kamenashi Kazuya, Akanishi Jin, Hayami Mokomichi, and Koike Teppei. For those who've seen the first Gokusen you'll find familiar faces also among the cast - and a return of Kuma! One of my favorites from the first season, I was happy to see him return in Gokusen 2!

The acting was great, I loved the entire cast!

The music wasn't anything special - the theme song changed from "Feel Your Breeze" to "No More Cry" at the end which wasn't a bad song. I loved Kamenashi Kazuya's "Kizuna" that was played during the drama, though (:

I can see myself rewatching this drama sometime, but probably not for a long time.

Overall - I enjoyed it just as much as the first season. For those of you who have seen the first season - you won't be disappointed with this one. For those who haven't seen any of the seasons yet but are curious because you like the cast - watch it! (:

With the original leaving a lasting impression on me, I fully expected to enjoy this round of Gokusen. I wasn't disappointed in the least, I'm proud to say. With such names as Jin Akanishi and Kazuya Kamenashi on the cast along with brilliant actors portraying their classmates, along with the return of Kuma, this show was destined to be a hit from the start. Uplifting life lessons combined with the amusing antics read more of this group of high school rascals makes Gokusen 2 an enjoyable watch from start to finish. I will definitely rewatch this show anytime, and heartily recommend it to others.

    Kizuna matched the tone of the drama especially for ryu and hayato. Sadly this was the only drama AKAME was in together.

    At first, you'll think that it's just a repetition of season 1 but no, it is not. This season has a different feel to it. And as always, very funny; especially that Head Teacher Sawatari—he perfectly portrayed the emotions as if you're watching an animated character.

      I think that is just spice; actually, I think Yankumi's fighting ability is unconvincing, almost ridiculous. However, the story is awesome and very enjoyable.

    I really love how the graffiti of 3D's surroundings change as time goes on. It's all dark and scary and then BOOM it's happier with the man holding a knife drawing being something different and not at all terrifying.

    Gave it a 10/10
    This drama is one of my all times favorite Jdrama with Nodame and Hana Yori Dango. All these dramas where amazing taught me lots of simple but meaningful life lessons :D I can' wait to watch the 3rd season >.<

    P.S: I swear in the start when Jin and Kame were glaring at each other I could sense some sexual tension between them... not even kidding... or maybe I'm just being to much of a fan girl :P

    Gokusen 2 was my favorite, mainly because of the astonishing cast.

    There is only one thing that I can advise Yankumi on and that is to invest in a scooter. Always running to those fights will make her tired and late...lol... but seriously I loved the funny ending.

      there's a good side of it, if she wasn't running all the time, she wouldn't be in such a good shape :)
