If you've seen the past three seasons of Gokusen, then this is like the 'end' of the series (though we don't know if they will make a fourth season of the series, thus the chance is very small). Honestly, the second and third season was a bit of a fill in, since pretty much the same thing happens in both of them, with additional twists.

This movie, exactly, is what I'd say read more '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.

This really gave a good ending to the Gokusen series.
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 )

      You can watch the movie without watching the drama. My friend did that, but she commented that it makes her want to watch the dramas too.

    Have to admit it wasn't the best due to them forgetting the most important character! Sawada Shin
    Apart from that I loved this movie, it was a good ending to the series

      it was really funny! but the manga-yankumi was a bit different than drama-yankumi. i liked both versions of yankumi :D and it was really nice to find the scenes in the manga. every drama had scenes from manga :) i didn't like the ending that much, it felt like the story didn't end. it would had needed just a couple more pages :D but it was really quick and easy to read (the chepters weren't that long)

      Thanks so much! Sometimes it seems so hard to make up my mind about reading a manga, because I don´t know if it will be a great manga or a waste of time, and so I waste time deciding until I make up my mind to read it ^^ So Thanks.

      sukimiwa--you should definitely read the Gokusen manga! Also, if you get a chance to watch the anime, you should. :D The writer of Gokusen also wrote Deka Wanko as well, which is a great manga and a good drama.
