Can be really good
I have just started to watch this drama. But so far so good. I am still in school and watching this drama inspired me a little made me think really.
The different teaching methods the teacher, ‘Sakuragi Kenji’ uses in this drama are really interesting, and often very funny. He talks about how a good education can change ones life. And he wants his students to understand that learning and knowledge is the key. They way he talks about this made at least me thin twice about education and learning.
I like this drama a lot so far, I have not seen the whole thing, and I hope it stays as good as it is now, and have a good ending..
