AKA: Drop-out Teacher Returns to School / Back to school / Yankee Bokou ni Kaeru
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.

Mac 2004: This drama really touched me, esp the last part of the drama. And the theme song is really nice, much more realistic compare with other similar theme drama. Too bad shinohara ryoko was just a beautiful vase in the drama........

Ahhh...what can I say...as usually yutaka is so kakkoi...now I know why they chose him as the emperor....overall for this drama, it's a thumb up....very nice and there are some touching scenes too...although it cannot beat GTO but I think we have to separate the 2 dramas. GTO is more mangga type while this one is more realistic....really like it.
