Here we have a Robin Hood style genius swindler who finds himself assuming the identity of a high school teacher while he is on the run from the law. He then in turn finds himself using his talent and skill to teach his students valuable life lessons whenever they happen to get themselves in trouble outside of class. This he refers to as Hammer Session.

Not to be missed. Never boring and one of the most fun to watch dramas ever. Super-short and sharp-tongued student Tachibana Kaede along with super-tall and stylin' Otowa#4 (aka Hachisuka-sensei) lead this into five-star territory.

Other amusing roles include the tandem of fellow fugitive Azabu#10 (aka Imamura Shouhei the school janitor) and the true Hachisuka-sensei, who is a maladjusted otaku he calls "Roku" as in the Japanese term "rokudenashi" which basically means "good-for-nothing loser".

Well, a Miss Universe contestant as the school health nurse. I'm alright with that.

They are about male teachers, who save theirs students' lives, using strange methodes and playing tricks on them.

In both the protagonist is a swindler who starts using his abilities to protect the people who got in trouble. kurosagi is about those people getting in troubles, because of money; in hammer session! the cases are different, but involve students from one particular school.

I got really bored after 3 eps I still don't know if I will finish it someday or not. The pattern was the same ep by ep I wonder if it would change after ep 4?

The idea was very interesting but the drama was poorly made. Hayami is a good actor but it's really hard to make a school life show when the students suck. Except for maybe two or three students the rest of them were terrible. You don't feel the "get together" feeling and some stories were too forced. The interaction between the students was random and uninteresting. I enjoyed the show mostly because of Hayami and Shida-chan. For me, a solid 4/10.

It's similar to GTO. I like this drama, it's ok~ I wish I had a teatcher like Hachisuka~
I think with him I'd love a math's lessons :D

"كان يضحك كيف نطقها " شكراً، مع السلامة

honestly, the first 3-4 episodes were kinda boring to me, but I reaaally enjoyed the last 4 episodes! the story got better there, and I'm in love with Moko's acting here. And Shida Mirai is a great little actress ;)
