Yes it's the same concept as Gokusen, but its way better. Its edgier, its funnier and its got Mokomichi! I really liked this drama because of the exciting plot and situations that unfolded. I also liked how it had a touch of a psychological aspect to it as Otowa (Mokomichi's character) really scammed everyone by getting in their heads. Although the main concept is that this teacher comes in and changes the students and the school by teaching in unconventional ways, this story has so much more. The teacher isn't a teacher but an ex conman on the run, and we don't really know his name. I liked how this drama really let its characters mature and even though the viewer is privy to the inner workings of the con-mans set up you still don't know how things are going to turn out. This isn't a tear jerker but makes you think, laugh and gasp.

Ok. So how do I start?
I realy loved this drama. I know it's a similiar to GTO and Gokusen - there's a 'strange' teacher who teaches life lessons but it's still different. The teacher is a swindler and he started teaching by mistake but he is probably one of the best teachers I've ever seen. He knows what to say and when to say it. He's smart and kind ^^. There is also a beautiful nurse (there has to be something like that in this kind of drama), an assistant teacher (who is kinda lost) and a funny girl in class who sometimes might get on your nerves but if she is your friend then she is the best one you could ever have. A person who would never betray you for her own good.
All the actors fit their roles realy well. They know how to portray their character, what expressions to use and etc. Perfect ;)
Even though there's only one main song it realy fits the show. A song liar in a drama about a liar (in other words : swindler). When it plays you somehow feel relieved because you know that everything is okay now. Just this feeling ^^
In rewatch value I gave it 9 not because I didn't like something about it. It's just that if you watch it the second or etc tim you can't get that amazing exciting feeling which you get the first time watching somthing like this ;)

Sooo, in one sentence : when you have free time, if you love j-school dramas you should definitely watch this!!!
(I watched on gooddrama.net)
