Majisuka is about a former yankee who decided to no longer fight but ends up doing it anyways. The main character, Atsuko, is similar to Yankumi from Gokusen and Hana from Yankee-kun to Megane-chan in that they all wear glasses when they decided to "change" the person that they were. Atsuko, unlike Yankumi and Hana, is a silent character. Because of something that happened in the past, she pushes the people close to her away. This part of Atsuko's character annoys me. The actors did a pretty good job acting out their characters but some of the minor characters had poor acting. My favorite character is Daruma; Daruma is hilarious and very sweet (although she acts tough). Unfortunately, most of the characters in this drama are pretty bland (even Daruma didn't have much depth). It matches the story though, since it was pretty predictable (Atsuko is super strong and pretty much beats everyone). The music is catchy but it does not match the drama (pop songs for a yankee drama, really?). Contrary to its name, Majisuka is not a serious drama and I recommend to someone who wants to watch something light.
