Cast & Credits
This movie, exactly, is what I'd say 'a twist' of the series itself. Yankumi, for once, gets hit by the enemy, and it's the studenst that defend her this time, in a way or another.
And there's our dear dear Matsumoto Jun who's, to my surprise, NOT in the movie. Honestly, that gave a big, fat minus point. He was such an important character in the first season, which obviously is the most memoriable season since that's where we all start, right? Him being the 'leader' of the class, PLUS being the first one to know about Yankumi's family made him special. And then again, his confession of love on the last episode of season 1 obviously made us all want to know more.
But anyways, because the series itself is just such a wonderful mixture of knowledge, friendship and relative scenarios, it still has a special place in my heart.
As in all Gokusen dramas, the movie contained a heart warming/ compassionate part to it.
I really loved that the directors brought Kame back. It gives a good sense of how much time has passed and how her past students are going at the moment.
I definitely recommend it to all the Gokusen fans out there. ( As well as Kame and Nakama Yukie fans )
