This show is officially one of my favorite dramas. I watched this drama before i realized that it was based off a manga but after watching it, I loved it so much that i tried out the manga. The drama actually altered the characters and story order quite a bit from the manga, and I've come to love the drama even more because of it.

The drama changed the characters to be read more more lovable, relatable, and endearing and the plot was not slow or draggy at all to me. Yankee to Megane is one of those dramas that has a manga/anime-esque feel to it, and by that I mean that the whole story revolves around small events, like Hana Kimi. It's not going to be a show with a gripping plot that'll keep you at the edge of your chair or anything because it has a different style. So I disagree with the previous reviewer that the events are out of place, because that's how these dramas are stylized to be and the way the drama portrays it is actually a lot more coherent then the manga.

The drama is a great light and funny story, but also has heart and good points of friendship. The acting is also great. The main leads were fantastic and I love how the actors portrayed the characters. The supporting cast, was average, but unimportant to the focus of the main characters.

As I am stil reading the manga currently, it makes me miss the slight differences in the characters and even though I just finished watching this drama a couple days ago, i already feel like watching it again.

Story- The pace of the show is good. Although the first couple eps may seem a little too slow for some. I wish they would have built the relationship more of Ada & Daichii even if it was their friendship. There was room for improvement. The ending was cute but a little disappointing. There needs to be a special!



Acting/Cast- the acting was good not spectacular, enough to carry read more the show. The supporting cast was helpful.



Music- I'm not one to really notice the OST unless Im able to get it in my head therefore being memorable so Id say this was an average OST.



Rewatch- Fun & entertaining makes this one to watch again.



Overall- Pretty good J drama that is entertaining.

Having high hopes for her students, her world turned up side down when she finds out that she'll be teaching the class 3-D the hardest class to take care of. Class 3-D is a bunch of students who looks more like delinquents and trouble makers. The students show no respect to teachers nor a little kindness. Each and every student doesn't like teacher for almost everyone has no good memories of them. The leader of the class is Sawada Shin. He is well respected for there are rumors that he beat a teacher to death. The students try there hardest to bully and make fun of her so she'll quit but all there efforts went to waste because Yamaguchi ain't an ordinary Teacher. Yamaguchi Kumiko is actually the 4th generation heir to Oedo group, a yakuza clan. Even though everyone in there clan wants her to the next leader, she made up her mind and so everyone accepted it. Eventually in the story, the students found out that she is different from other teacher and earned their respects. They called her Yankumi...

Both are originally from the same mangaka, since both are based on a manga.
The humor is similar and the main characters are both deliquents.

    Any idea what word Shinagawa uses that is usually translated to "irritating"? I can't quite pick it up.

      Taken from a comment on gooddrama (I don't know if it's right): "he says uzze- which means you are annoying in an informal boyish way. and the formal one is urusai ^^"

      I had a feeling it would be that one, but he always said it under his breath and made it difficult for me to recognize.

    I have to be honest I am only watching this for Hiroki. Is there any romance in this or is it mainly comedy?

    Not close to being awesome, but it's okay. A fun watch, but the story line isn't that great.

    I wasn't actually expecting much from this drama, given its rank here, but after finishing the first episode, I must say the first episode is surprisingly REALLY good. Looking forward to the rest of its episodes!

    Shinagawa is obsessed with the idea of Adachi being in love with him hahha, when really you can tell he likes her.

    I liked this drama a lot, I will have to read the manga now! :)

    The reason I watched this was because I was very fond of the manga. I am actually surprised that this was a good adaptation. I loved the ending and if you had enjoyed this one, I suggest you read the manga. More extreme Adachi, more hilarious. I loved the two leads. hahaha.

    So many positive comments. I am planning on watching this but may I ask where did the drama end? Or more like what was the ending/last arc? I have read the manga years ago so I just wanna know what parts were included here.
