The story revolves around the 38-year-old Usa Shijimi (Watanabe), who is a high school classical literature teacher. Her students are mean to her, but they don’t realize that she has another identity. Outside school, she lies about her age to be active as the super popular 17-year-old idol Watanabe Mayu, whom the students adore. --Tokyograph
Cast & Credits
As for the casting and acting... I gave a 8/10. When looking at the plot, I was questioning myself on the quality of the casting. But casting wasn't that bad actually. It was a drama for Mayu of AKB48 and it represents that side very well. The other characters are very nice too. Their acting was very nice to watch. It sticked well with the humour of the drama. Kaminaga Keisuke made me laugh so much !
As for the music... Well, I'm not a big fan of Japan Idol songs. And beyond that, I can't remember of a song which was highlighten or something like that. In fact, I've no idea of what was the OST. That can means that it wasn't very powerful and interesting ? But it's not like I disliked it (otherwise I would have remembered) so I gave 6/10.
I think it's a good drama to watch once. Twice maybe for some parts which are funny... But not the whole many times. That's why I gave 5/10. I bet we can easily get tired of it.
In conclusion, it's a 7/10 that I give to this drama. A nice moment of laugh even though it is not special or original. Simple but effective.
I think if somebody diffrent had acted as Utamaro I might not have liked him this much. I think that the actor creates the character. So I am actually very gratful to Kaminaga-san that he choosed to be the actor of that character.
