Based on the comedy manga by Abe Shuji, "Elite Yankee Saburo" tells the story of Ookochi Saburo (Ishiguro Hideo), a plain and shy boy entering high school. Unfortunately for him, his two older brothers had built a reputation as legendary troublemakers at that school. When Saburo arrives, he is immediately misunderstood and treated as an "elite yankee."

I went into this with basically zero expectations knowing only it was to take place in a yankee school.

And in the first few episodes I was pretty confused as to what I thought about this show, but when it got further in I actually started to find the humor to be funny at times. Not the over the top way that Saburo transforms into his powerful form nor the ongoing joke with the naked girls but rather the way the characters treated each other and just didn't listen to what Saburo tried to tell them, stuff like that.

I was pleasently surprised, but it was far from a masterpiece.

The cast was pretty funny, especially Kurashina Kana as the sweet innocent girl that sometimes just freaked out.

Hashimoto Jun and the relatively unknown actor Itakura Toshiyuki as Saburo's sidekicks are also very funny to watch once you warm up to them abit.

The music is decent, nothing groundbreaking.

All in all, this was a solid comedy show that had some funny moments and some moments that fell flat. It won't win awards for being great, but I enjoyed it for what it was most of the time. That is why I give it a 7.

При просмотре просто ржала в голос, и ведь понимала, что тупизна неимоверная, да еще с особым японским трешовым шармом, но ведь надо ж - при таких моментах всегда вспоминаю прекрасную серию Симпсонов, где "Оскара" вручили фильму как мяч бьёт по яйцам, все-таки в человеке есть такая черта, смеяться над таким. Но если честно - фильм все же комедия абсурда в самом прекрасном исполнении, и участие в камео всяческих японских звезд (например, гадалку играла Накаме Юки) это подтверждает. Остальные актеры просто оттягивались по полной, количество сыгранных ими придурков просто зашкаливает. Отстебали почти все - от янки, до яоя. Да еще и тема сисек раскрыта.
