Sawatari Goro now works at Akado High School as a vice principal. Although the head director of the school board speficically orders him to handle the problematic class 3-D, the students are just too much for him. So Sawatari goes far away to a southern island to search for Yankumi, and convince her to work for Akado. Yankumi accepts the offer, only to find that her class (again) is full of punks, read morewhere two rival groups of students are always at each other's throats. Will Yankumi's strong belief in students and teaching work this time?

I was honestly really looking forward to this season because of Miura Haruma, but I just didn't really fall in love with most of the characters as I did in season 1 and season 2.. (especially season 1)

It's really great seeing Gokusen coming back with another season because of its successfulness.. it really was. But seeing the same storyline again for the 3rd time really bored me. Also, I didn't feel read more the closeness between Yankumi and the 3-D class as in season 1. I just wished there was a plot twist or a new storyline.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Yankumi's strong personality and physical strengths.. but I'm tired of seeing her students getting beat up and has to need her help every single episode. I wish that the writers made up something a bit new... like her students try to not get into fights more often or fight back for themselves.

If ONLY I liked the characters here a bit better, I would've given this a 7. But I just didn't really any of the students. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Miura Haruma, but I seriously dislike his character here. I love Jun's and Kame's characters in seasons 1 and 2 the best. They care about their friends the MOST, and actually have a lot of times that they were calm... unlike many others.

Overall, if you're a fan of this series like I am, you should continue finishing it off... but it might get a bit boring at times. I definitely enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 better ;)

There are some definite similarities. Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou is kind of like Gokusen-lite, with ten times the girls and no teacher making speeches and kicking butts. There's a lot of fighting (but these guys don't seem to get pounded into the ground like the guys from Gokusen do). And a lot of running. And a lot of ragegrowling from a lot of cute guys. There are even similar themes - fighting for what's important, loyalty. Plus, Takaki Yuya from Gokusen 3 is in it. If you enjoyed these things about Gokusen, give it a shot, the episodes are only about 20 minutes.

    Too many repetitive problems from the past seasons. Same fighting reasons and lessons just different characters. It became very predictable. I wouldn't recommend to binge watch all three seasons. But it was good to have new set of delinquents.

    Did anyone else notice that the guy who plays Honjo Kengo in this season played Yabuki Hayato's brother in the 2nd season? Weird.

    Honestly, this season is painfully boring. It's so repetitive.

    This last season is different from the first two; this change of pace is quite refreshing. Then, it's the same ride again since episode 4 but the quality of the story has downgraded along the way, which is kind of sad considering my high appreciation for seasons 1 and 2.

    I liked the first two season better but this one is my favorite cast (miura fan here) . It is a little repetitive like they were trying to get the last bit they could get from gokusen. But atleast they stayed with original idea.

    Honestly, this is my favorite season of Gokusen. I don't know why but i found it amazing. I see that some people say that each season is repetitive. But honestly i loved them all. I cried at the end of each season.

    The only reason I finished this was for Miura. I loved the first season and the second one was okay but they kept repeating the story line for each season.

    Ren Kazama is my favourite character, I like also 2 his friends but only a bit, properly he's the one who I like in this drama :P And a bit his teacher :P I'm in love with him, he's so rebelious, a bit agressive, he fighting, he has rebel gaze, sometimes he makes dangerous mines, he's impulsive and I like those type of guys :P What girl or woman don't like bad boys?? I like his hair and how he has pinned his hair on one side. My friend don't like his hair- the blond highlights and hair generally but when she's seen that updo she's love that! That one of the best Miura's role, he's excellent actorr good when he plays, normal guys, rebelious guys, romantic guys, or simply stupid guys xD But as a woman I love rebelious one's the best! I was thinking is he like that in normal life he plays so good, but maybe he's just an excellent actor?

    Don't get me wrong here. I love Gokusen, Yankumi, and Miura Haruma in here... but this season was really boring :/ No plot twist or anything. Just the same old storyline for the 3rd time. I found season 1 the best and season 2 was pretty good. But I didn't really enjoy season 3 as much :/ Still worth a watch if you're a Gokusen fan! :D

    I've just started this season. But didn't Sawatari and Yankumi already have a job at another school? Yamabuki or something like this?
