In 1988 Hokkaido's Hokusei Yoichi High School became the first high school in Japan to accept students who had previously dropped out of high school from nationwide. Hokkaido Broadcasting (HBC) has been covering this school for 15 years and aired a documentary last spring that caused a stir all over the country. Now TBS in cooperation with HBC will create a drama based on the school.

The drama will follow a former gang member, dropout and graduate of the school who returns as a teacher. We will follow him as he helps graduating students out into the world. The teachers and students will, as you would expect, confront all the issues of youth and society today. At this school, there are no compromises, no lies. This drama will move you as both students and teachers face a variety of issues head on.

This is a moving story that is created by people coming together and learning to believe in each other.

Production Credits


Whereas this would be considered (by casual fans) as another clone of GTO, this series is actually different in that it is realistic. It is based on a real-life Hokkaido school which began to take problem students beginning in 1988. The teachers, students, and aides are more realistic and less inclined to solve problems in a jiffy as it happens in GTO.
