Synopsis

The story of a young, idealistic teacher who enters Shirokin Gakuen with hopes of making a difference in the students' lives. However, Yamaguchi Kumiko (Nakama Yukie) is in for a rude awakening when she finds that she will be the homeroom teacher of 3-D, the hardest class to maintain in the school. The students have multi-colored hair, sloppy uniforms, and show absolutely no respect to her. The leader of the class, Sawada Shin is lazy but bright and shows some interest in Yamaguchi when he notices that she is very different from other teachers. The students try to bully her to make her quit, but their attempts don't get them very far.

What the class and the rest of the school does not know is that Yamaguchi Kumiko is actually the 4th generation heir to the Ooedo Group, a notorious yakuza clan. Even though her family would like her to take the title of Ojou when her grandfather dies, they have accepted the fact that Yamaguchi would rather be a teacher.

Eventually, the students learn to respect their quirky teacher because of her devotion to them, and even give her a nickname: Yankumi.

Notes

  • Gokusen is an abrevation of Gokudo no Sensei which means Gangster Teacher.
  • Teruo Kumai is nicknamed "Kuma" (Bear) not only because it's a derivative of his last name, but also because he tends to look, act and eat like a bear.
  • In epi. 11, Yankumi confiscated mangas from her students. Two to three of those were Gokusen mangas.
  • The Graduation Special was aired later in March 2003.

Half a year has passed and Shirokin Gakuen has closed down. Yamaguchi Kumiko (Nakama Yukie) finds herself a teacher of a few young kids who don't really benefit much from her style of teaching. Through some twist of fate, she is offered a job as a teacher in Kurogin Gakuen.

She becomes the teacher of a delinquent 3D class which make her previous students look like angels. In order to protect her job, she must again hide her true identity — the fact that she is the 4th generation of the Oedo Family, a prominent yakuza group.

  • If you take a look around the classroom during episode 10, you can see a lot of cartoons of Yankumi. There's some at her podium, board, left side of wall when facing class, and the wall right behind the students as you are facing them.

Notes

  • Ishiguro Hideo who plays Honjo Kengo also played the role of Yabuki Taku (Hayato's brother) in episode 8 of Season 2
  • Kuma's wife Ami is the same Morisaki Ami of Momo Girls's High that Kuma met and fell in love with in episode 5 of Season 1. The actress portraying it is still the same but has changed her name since then.
