Well balanced drama comedy
18 January 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

My general knowledge about Japaese TV is rather limited, as in non existing. Sure enough, I know something about Japanese movies, mainly of Kurosawa's work, so I really had no expectations, when a friend suggested "My Boss, My Hero" to me. And despite some of the cultural references fly over my head, as a comedy oriented drama the series really was a pleasant surprise.

Sakaki Makio (Tomoya Nagase) is a bit slow, yet furiously strong member of Yakuza crime family, that his father is leading with a firm hand. After Makio blunders a huge deal his father decides to throw his 27-years old son back in high school to get some wisdom is his head. So from that forward Makio must pretend to be a 17-years old and study, while he tries to balance between his other duties as an upcoming third boss of the family.

The comedy is a mixture of situation comedy, that arises from the whole fact of 27-years old pretending to be a 17-years old, and slapstick. The episodes are reasonably well balanced, but some episodes are more drama oriented than others and all in all, the series is a pleasant experience despite I have clear gap in my understatement of Japanese culture.
