Sakaki 'Tornado' Makio is an aggressive and mentally slow 27 year old who can't do simple math or think about much of anything for more than 90 seconds at a time. Next in line to become his yakuza family's third boss, Makio is living the good life. That is, until his father tells him he must do something before he can ever become boss -- finally graduate from high school. Posing as a 17 year old transfer student, Makio enters St. Agnes Academy. When he unexpectedly starts making friends, becomes class leader of 3-A, and even develops a potential romance, he begins to realize that one learns much more than academics in the classroom.
Just imagine, yakuza gangster who stutters, loves pudding so much that he would "jump" over a building just to get one, can't think clear for more than 90 seconds and is soo stupid that he can't decide which is bigger - 35 or 27. You can't? Well then get prepared, because if you decide to watch this drama, you'll see a yakuza like no other.
The story: Imagine the yakuza mentioned above, stuck in a high school crowded with full of themselves teenagers, and trying to act all innocent and friendly, while on the other hand wants to kick the butt of all his "classmates" and you have it. Nothing so much, really. In it's whole once again the main idea is to learn all the important aspects in life. What makes it nice is the presenatation, and the comedy. Definetly the comedy, which believe me, is like nothing you've seen before.
The cast: Like it. Untill a while ago I had difficulty imagining Nagase Tomoya as an actor, but he actually did a great job, so he has my compliments on his performance. You'll definetly fall in love wiht his dorky yakuza. Also, after having watched Kashii Yuu in some other roles, this is the first time I actually like her performance, so she is worth mentioning as well. Oh, and Kouki, he was cute and absolutely adorable as well.
The drama passes with high score for me, so my advice is to give it a try.
The idea of a soon-to-be yakuza boss attending high school is interesting and funny in the same time. I think that Nagase Tomoya was perfect for that role, even though his facial expressions were somehow exaggerated in some parts. Tanaka Koki's role was amazing too, and my personal favorite in the drama. His ability to combine the yakuza attitude with needlework was exquisite~
There are some scenes that can definitely make you cry, wonder about your own path in life, and, in the end, take in the message of enjoying school life and every little thing it has to offer.
