P.s. as someone already pointed out, the theme song is a cover of 'Otoko no Kunshou'- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frC94k58Hvo - Jiro Sato, who played Riko's father, makes an appearance in this music video.
First of all, just want to be clear that I like this drama, but not to the point calling it masterpiece. Very far from being the funniest drama I have ever seen too.
To me the attraction of this drama lies in the retrospective time-frame the event took place. That's to be expected from a 90's manga's remake! Just love the fashions, hairstyle, makeup and even some terms that no longer being used in drama like "Tsuppari". Credit to production team for making such a retro drama. It would have been a lot easier to make historical than a retro in my opinion, because it's easy to messed up with the technological fact i.e phone, computer, etc.
As far as the comedy drama concern, I have a mixed feeling. First, the "anime-like-episodic" approach is cool IMO. The slapstick comedy was overdone in some, but still acceptable and entertaining. What I'm not a fan of was that kind of moment when you already get the joke, but they keep over-explaining it (not necessarily lingual) until it feels not funny anymore. I noticed this same style was also in Mr. Nietzsche, which I lose interest after episode 1. However, the adlib and mumbling from Sato Jiro was excellent to be fair.
For acting, don't watch this drama if you're not a fan of Kaku Kento's MJ-like moves. Hahaha... Thanks to that, I feel Taiga was less overacting, if you know what I mean.
The other good thing about this drama is it's full of fighting scene and action. This alone made up for the so-so comedy and the hyperactive Kaku Kento.
All in all, good drama but definitely not that funny (at least to me). This is however highly recommended if you're:
1. Looking for inspiration of 80's fashion
2. Love high school drama
3. Want to see fight scene in every episode
