A hopeless inveterate gambler in debt (Matsumoto Hitoshi) is beaten up by a gangboss (Takenaka Naoto), and forced to work in a highschool as a lead teacher til he pays his debts off. His co-teacher is demoted by the gangboss (secretly) and is played by Nakai Masahiro. Hitoshi and Masahiro have incredible rapport, stunning comedic dialogues, and a brilliant staging during their 11 adventures as they problem solve difficulties in the high school in areas such as: bullying, a mother/son problem, an arrogant girl with no friends, a suicide, and all along Hitoshi is shaken down by the gangboss everytime he receives a paycheck.

Some call it the comic side of GTO.

For Americans it is the equivalent of "Room 222" or "Welcome back Kotter", but with an IQ of 150, not 25. A smart series, with unpredictable incredible plotting, superb comic patter (the comic routines were scripted by Hitoshi/Naoto, and at times improvised).

No script for this on the internet in English, and no translations on any disk available in English, but was available for a time in HK with Chinese subtitles as a bootleg.

Waiting to be made into a film.

Brilliant. 10/10.
