Hilarious even just with Subs
8 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Wow, I am very impressed with this show. I laughed non-stop during the first episode and nothing was lost in translation, thanks fansubbers!!!

Anyways, the actress that plays the teacher is so funny, pretty and nerdy at the same time. She is awesome in her role.

The premise: A 23 year old pretty girl/lady becomes a new teacher at a highschool in Japan. Her class is the most rebellious in the school and notorious for picking on their teachers. She is full of hope and determination to teach them well much to their annoyance and hostility.

Unbeknownst to them, she is actually the grand daughter of the head of a powerful Yakuza clan and could easily threaten them.

Very funny stuff especially every time they play the Yakuza samurai theme lol If you can find it, definitely check it out for some serious laughs.
