One day, Bakada High School, a school with dumb, delinquent boys, and Daiichi Catteleya Academy, a school with beautiful, well-off girls, are merged to form Bakareya High School. However, Sakuragi Tatsuya (Morimoto Shintaro) who loves Bakada High School in every respect, reacts sharply against Shingyoji Eri (Shimazaki Haruka) who is equally proud of her alma mater, and an uproar ensues...

I hadn't watched a Jdrama in a while and I wanted to watch a light fun Jdrama. This drama was the perfect fix.

Story: The story is set in Bakuda/Bakaleya high school. Now I love school dramas because I can relate to them because I'm in high school as well. However I really found it interesting to see how schools in Japan are run. The story is really simple but entertaining to read more watch. I'll admit the boys do fight a lot, but I actually found the fight scenes really interesting. The fight scenes really bought out the characteristics of each boy. The girls were annoying at first, especially Fumie who showed no expression, but they grew on me. I love how smoothly the boys and girls transition from enemies to friends. Another thing I really liked were that the boys,though rowdy, were really sweet, good boys who just wanted to protect their honor and pride. They had so much spirit that I wanted to join their school. I marathoned this drama over 2 days when I had time and it was really entertaining and fun to watch.

Cast: So its seems that this is a cast of rookie actors. The acting honestly wasn't that bad. Some more expression could have been shown, but it was believable. The cast improved with every episode which I give props for. They are extremely good looking so that's a plus as well. The only downside to having such a big cast, was that in the beginning I really got my names confused. I couldn't figure out who was Tatsuya and who was Tetsuya. I honestly thought they were the same person at first.

Music: I loved loved loved the theme song!! Its so catchy! But it reminded me of another song, and it really bugged me for a day. I figured out what song it reminded me of - F.Cuz's No. 1. The beat is the same in both songs. But the song is good, and honestly I think the theme song was the only song played in this whole drama. At least that was the only song I heard. But I really liked it, and it wasn't like BOF where you got sick of hearing Almost Paradise... every 2 minutes.

Rewatch: I definitely think I would rewatch this again if I'm in the mood for a cute, fun, light-hearted Jdrama.

Overall: Really good, fun Jdrama. I would recommend to anyone who wants something entertaining to watch which won't get them too emotional.

Short and sweet school dramas are right up my alley so I knew Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou would appeal to me, however I wasn’t too keen on the idea of an all idol cast…

Story: It’s a mix of Jdramas Tadashii Ouji no Tsukurikata, Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, and Life. So nothing original about it but still enjoyable. I liked the idea of the 2 gender groups coming together to stop outsiders from ruining read more their schools reputation and trying to get them to shut down. I was hoping for a little more on the romance front but maybe they’ll be closure to the pairings in the movie sequel version.

Acting/Cast: The acting in this was pretty much a joke. No seriously I laughed in scenes that were supposed to be serious. The 2 female lead actresses made their characters come off as fake, robotic and sometimes creepy. The 2 male lead actors were a little better but one overacted while another underacted. It was really distracting when there will be scenes with both female and male idol groups all in one room and then you get random idols have one liners when you really should be focusing on the 4 leads. I feel like I didn’t connect with any of the main characters because you don’t really get to know each one.

Music: I liked the “Shake it Baby” theme song cause it was really catchy and makes me wanna dance. The other song I assume is by the girl idols and it matched the teeny angsty scenes.

Rewatch: I doubt I’ll watch this again just because the acting was really distracting.

Overall this is a typical school idol drama so don’t go into it expecting much.

Both include yankees and school life, as well as the clash of 2 very different lifestyles. Both are lively dramas about being who you are, confidence, loyalty, and finding one's path in life/fulfilling dreams.

    It was alright. Not so fond of it - don't hate nor love it. It feels like 25% of the whole show was the boys fighting which could've been used for character development.

    Against my fears this didn't turn out as a Gokusen rip-off (and seeing Takai Yuya playing not the leader like in Gokusen but a guy who avoids fights is simply hilarious! :D). The fighting and the end scene actually reminded me of crows zero at some points with somewhat similar underlying values.

    I found Fumie annoying sometimes, but I liked that she stuck to her own values. As some other people pointed out, most of the girls came across as quite shallow with not a lot of character depth. More, or longer, episodes would have been great to add character depth and show more interactions between the supporting roles, as well and to balance the sometimes awkward acting and plot holes. Nonetheless, I was positively surprised by this and really enjoyed it. I ended up watching it in one go. ^^''
