Basically, it's good but it could have been great. I have no knowledge on the manga it's based off, so I'll solely judge on the drama (the review of the special will eventually go to the special's thread).
The first thing that you need to know is that there's plenty of action in this, I'd say it's a cross between a tokusatsu and a school drama, going more towards the "drama" side read more but keeping the action strong. So, if tokusatsus are definitely not your thing, I don't think I'd recommend it for you. If you don't mind the action, read on.
The school drama plot is basically the same you've seen a thousand times: school of delinquents, worst class of all, teacher comes in with goodness in his heart to change the hearts of the students and show them the path of light. The twist is that this teacher is secretly a masked vigilante who has government authority to inflict unrestricted violence on students as he deems necessary. Yes, you read that right.
Araki Gota, performed by Fujigaya Taisuke, is a sort of Kenshin Himura-ish character, who is trying to change his methods and use actual education (!) and understanding to get to the bottom of his student's problems and let them change by themselves and not through violence and fear. The whole dynamic between violence and understanding is the heart of the drama, and it's well represented. I didn't expect a drama with a masked guy on a motorcycle punching people to have such deep and turbulent emotional developments, but it does.
Still, the episodes are too short to dig as deep in the characters as I would have liked. There's an individual exploration of the characters to some extent, but there's not enough time for us to get as involved in the story lines as I feel the story had the potential to show.
But, if you like school dramas of teachers who change students' hearts, action sequences in every episode, Saito Takumi in a suit staring at folders and Fujigaya Taisuke wearing leather and giving heartwarming speeches, watch this. All jokes aside, it's pretty entertaining and unexpectedly emotional at times.
Oh, and you'd probably end up loving Tsukada Ryoichi's segments, even if initially you don't know what they're even for.

Both main characters want to help kids without using violence.
And they have similar personalities.
However in KT the main character is a teacher while in shibatora the mc is a policeman
Recommended by leah
Similar themes and characters: both teachers have a "secret identity" and help their students solve their personal problems.

    Super cheesy but also super fun to watch! Went into it quite sceptical but I was hooked pretty much in the first episode. The fight scenes were surprisingly badass and though the whole plot was super indulgent and cliche, it was gratifying and entertaining all the same. Some bits made me piss myself laughing because at the WTF-ness and yes, it can be cringe-worthy at times but I found myself watching the whole series in one night because I literally could not stop. So, I wouldn't recommend starting this drama if you have shit to do the next day. Put aside a weekend to dedicate yourself to the awesomeness of Kamen Teacher. :D

    I can't wait for Kis-My-Ft2 songs to sound as dated as old KAT-TUN songs.

      You can actually choose more than five. But only five will show up on your list. Like on mine I have more than five favorite actors but when I saved it only five showed up but the others are on there as well.

    Okay I've watched the three episodes and honestly it's a little silly. For example, in episode three the teacher says "wait a minute" and then he goes to change into the suit and mask, comes back and fights the student. Wouldn't it be obvious the same guy is Kamen Teacher? lol And these Johnny's Junior boys make terrible delinquents. It's like they're trying to be hardcore and failed. I couldn't help laughing because it's funny. The acting is severely lacking as well.

      The only thing I can say is to use VLC player. I have never had a problem downloading things from d-addicts.

      If you still haven't found a place to watch it with subs then you should try drama.net. It's a pretty good site.

      The "wait a minute" bit seriously KILLED me!!! I had to pause it and laugh myself silly over it. Those bits were incredibly stupid but they did give me a good laugh!

    They seriously shouldn't cast these Johnny's pretty boys as teachers. It's hard to take this guy seriously when he looks like a student. They should have cast someone more mature looking.
