Usually, just based on the description for this drama, I wouldn't have given this a chance. But I was coming off of watching Gokusen and wanted something similar to watch afterwards. This hit the spot perfectly.

Story: Just like Gokusen its a school drama and everything is centered around getting a class full of hooligans to graduate/clean up their act. The only real difference between the 2 dramas is that in Gokusen read more Yankumi is trying to hide her yakuza family ties and in Misaki Number One!! Misaki is trying to hide her past as a hostess. There are people from the club who rally around to help her when things get tough and her want to help her students is nothing short of cuteness!

Acting/Cast: This is a goofy, feel good show, so the acting isn't necessarily award-worthy, but solid. I liked everyone in their roles and believed them

Music: Good, not great.

Rewatch Value: If you're in the mood for an uplifting and light comedy that makes you feel all warm inside, then there is no limit to the amount of times you can watch this.

Overall: At 10 episodes at 45 minutes this is a perfect weekend drama that I often revisit when I want to cleanse my drama palate with something I know will not disappoint.

I liked Misaki Number 1! I thought it was charming and a cute twist on the bad / inexperienced teacher taking on troubled teens. Although it closely resembles Gokusen, Great Teacher Onizuka and other great dramas with the same plot, it had way better fashion and sincerity to it. I would not want to see a sequel for this drama because the story line wasn't deep enough to carry it a second read more season; and toward the 7th episode the storyline was tired.

There are no real plot surprises, there are no real twists and turns. This drama is not going to blow you away or make you cry;however it's fun it's light and its sparkly. If you've seen the other dramas like this you know what's going to happen and you know what the characters will do, but sometimes it's still fun to see the process.

P.s. Karina was really good in this role, but the other actors were plain awful.

Both dramas have jpop idols in the cast and a beautiful teacher trying to help the revolting teenagers.

Dragon Zakura is a good kyoushi (bengoshi? ww) dorama and MNO!! is an annoying kyoushi dorama;
the thing I am basing this recommendation off is actually vaguely unrelated to any meaningful part of the shows' composition..: the kids' style
Osakaish GALish kinda bad thing; idk, it brightens me up

    The comedy is so off and the dialogue so contrived it's ridiculous. But somehow I like it. Probably because Karina is cute.

    this drama is somehow really touching :D I loved Gokusen som much, that's why a was not sure if this drama will be good, because it seemed like a poor copy in the beginning! But it really has its own charm! Really worth watching ;)

    Ahhh I totally loved this *__* OST is so catchy and it's from the makers of Gokusen (screenwriters are same + composer is same). So for me who LIVES for Gokusen this was amazing *__* When I heard they will be making this I thought "They're gonna flop this one". Turns out I was wrong.

    lol, totally agree, Arcene. Also, Karina has a movie where she's a #1 hostess named Misaki in a club that looks exactly like the one in this drama (I wish I remembered the name). I'm convinced they filmed this drama just to get two shows out of one production budget, hehe.

    this was, though similar to gokusen, is not as good for many reasons. Primarily because its almost the exact same except this one has the teacher be a number one hostess.... so when she goes to defend her students, she has nothing but words and other people come in to help carrying toilet plungers
