38. Nakama Yukie has grown to become my favorite actress overall…she’s just so beautiful, talented, and I love the roles that she chooses to play~! Yamaguchi Sensei being near the top of that list! ^-^ While her character can’t cook (burnt food at Sawadakun’s still lingers in the air! 😛 ) she teaches us morals in life and always has that “get up” when you’re down mentality to inspire us. ^ ^ And I cried at end of each and every episode! (;_;)
37. The theme song “Feel Your Breeze” by V6 is as endearing as the drama itself and in just a few episodes the two become inseparable in your ♥♪♪ Here click play above while I continue to ramble…..sorry an episode preview clip is in there too. 😛
36. Nakazawa Yuko stars as the school’s nurse!…need I say more?
35. Because oh my~! how cute teachers can influence the will to learn….um unfortunately it’s not Yamaguchi Sensei they’re “impressed” with.
34. Matsujun…….his character started off as appearing a bit aloof at times but everything really did come together by the end! =)
33. Just the premise of the night and day appearance of Yamaguchi Sensei is amusing and endearing at the same time….at home ironically more glamorous while at school…well somewhat dorky I’d have to say. ^ ^
32. Her students nickname her “♥Yankumi♥”…..awww kawaii~! ^o^
31. Oguri Shun. I don’t think you can go wrong with any drama that he’s in! =)

28. In a yummy twist of fate Yankumi’s sudden “love at first sight” interest turns out to be an officer of the law! :O And just to watch her crumble like a cookie everytime he’s around is pure ♥! ^_^
27. Yankumi often “slips” and forgets to keep her rough “yakuza” style word usage at home!…which always gets the very best reactions! :O
26. Yankumi’s facial expressions speak a thousand words……..”no Kuma…you didn’t!!” 😮
25. Because butt kicking can be sooooooo cute doncha think?!….but at the same time so can………….
….pretending to be all cute & cudly when your love interest suddenly arrives unexpectedly just as you were about to kick that guy’s butt~!…………..
…awwww Yankumi!♥ ^ ^

22. So many baddies getting beaten up by a girl…what could be better! (^o^)/
21. Because two bears are better than one!…

19. Yankumi and her grandfather have the most nuturing conversations for the soul and those are always one of my favorite parts of each episode. (*´∀｀*)♪♪
18. Yankumi’s bedroom looks so cozy!…I want to live there! ^ ^
17. Sawadakun’s sister is Ichikawa Yui♥ ^ ^
16. It’s photoshop gone wild!…but surely Nakama Yukie doesn’t need…um “those”….natural is most beautiful! ^ ^
15. Because more dramas should have Momusu references like the one that occurs above! =) Hmm….but for a “future career”, I wonder which song he chose the lyrics from???
14. It cracked me up each time Yankumi called the police…the “fuzz” accidentally…..um especially when they’re…
…standing right there!! :o!!! >_< Poor Yankumi!
13. Because Yankumi’s use of “FIGHT O~H!” is adorable x 10! ^o^
12. Did I already mention Matsujun? 😛 And I must admit that the sight of seeing him dance as a cheerleader while slightly frightening is also alone well worth the price of admission! ^o^
11. The head teacher is so deviant and deliciously phony that it makes you cringe~! :O
10. Yankumi has the “best” timing when her class is engaged in secret talk….my on screen eavedropping hero~! ^o^
9. Just the sight of yazuka selling takoyaki on the side…lol! =)
8. While there have been countless on screen disguises used over the years…Yankumi’s is the best ever!!! Matsujun’s expression says it all! (^o^)/ ♪♪………
…OMG Yankumi! =) Nakama Yukie’s reminding me of an idol right now!….♥
7. Because cute and cuddly animals always add reasons to love a drama! Awwww kawaii inu~! It’s a good thing that Uchi saved him from that terrible student!
6. The bumblings of Yankumi’s “family” are quite endearing and run deep, including this….um not too well thought out gift of offering alcohol to Sawadakun! :O

…LOL! =D…and the comedic jabs often thrown by Sawadakun are priceless~! ^ ^
4. And waking up Yankumi in the morning can be a dangerous affair~! 😮

2. Because we get an “endearing” lesson on how to play yakuza style basketball….hmm something tells me that he’s never actually played basketball before. 😮
1. And last but not least!….I ♥ Gokusen because a “rewarding” kiss from Yankumi = batsu penalty and can clear a room in no time~! :o…………….
………….♥CHU~!♥ ~Fin~ ^ ^
