Based on the manga series of the same name by Kawahara Kazune. Sophomore and representative of the archery club, Shimada Hibiki is a 17-year-old student who has never been in love. During her high school's entrance ceremony she sees Kosaku Ito, her 26-year-old world history teacher, who is well known to be a stern and cold person. Hibiki, rescued by Ito after a minor incident, discovers that their teacher is actually compassionate towards others and starts to develop romantic feelings for him. Hibiki confesses, and her honest and young love begins to slowly melt Ito's heart. (Source: Written by MyDramaList)

In all honesty, I am not a fan of teacher-student relationships. Something about this common storyline always turns me off. However, this is also a fairly common plot in Japanese movies and after watching Kinkyori Renai (which was AMAZING), I have decided to give more of them a chance.

My Teacher was interesting in that it did not just have the common plotline but also addressed some of the issues associated with student-teacher relationships. Especially in that case that someone witnesses it, and how that can spiral out of control from rumors, losing one’s job, and everything in between. I liked theses realistic aspects added in, and I felt it gave a more complete view on the topic.

In addition, the acting was great! There was definitely chemistry between the leads, despite the age gap. Also, I enjoyed all the side characters and subplots. The cinematography was also wonderful, which is a rare find in the youth romance genre! To its core it was a movie the demonstrated how love comes in many forms, and how these forms change you and those around you. Additionally, the soundtrack was fitting, but was not a standout, in and of itself.
Overall good movie that is worth watching if you want a youth, school, romance. Although, in this genre, I found Kinkyori Renai MORE enjoyable.

Happy Drama Watching!! :)

awww. this is a very great adaptation. The scenes weren't cramped to fit in just two hours unlike other live actions. Such a sweet story where everything I want is happening haha! It's alright if you havent read the manga. You will still be able to feel it. The scenes are whole, I mean, they are connected to each other not just some different scenes put together which is for me, a bad habit of some japanese live actions.
If you try to put as much manga scenes as possible in a two-hour movie, it would definitely be cramped. I liked that this movie focused on one arc then combined it with the last arc (they left out a lot of scenes/arc from the manga but it's one of the reasons i liked this movie). It will make more sense to those who havent read the manga yet. It's like a stand alone movie, with or without the manga, you will still like it!
If you want to see and read more ItoXShimada scenes, then read the manga! hehe.

btw, Ikuta Toma and Hirose Suzu has a 14-year age gap and that struck me hard! Awesome! Sugoi! XD
