In both, the male protagonist is a high-schooler who slacks off at school, but after becoming acquainted with a real samurai grows as a person.

The male protagonist is someone who follows his own moral. By reason of fair play and well being of his friends, he is not afraid to talk or do whatever he thinks right. Not obeying the school rules, he is always at verge of punishment.

Even though the comedy was pretty good and Miura Haruma's acting was amazing, the show is still pretty terrible. It tries too hard to be serious and has so many plotholes and inconsistencies that honestly made me dislike it. The best parts were Kotarou's (Samurai mode or not) interactions with his father. Great chemistry between those two and very good acting! It goes without saying that Haruma's acting of the two roles was amazing and he did an excellent job - pity it had to be in such na unfortunate drama. The rest of the cast were mostly disappointing.... 2/5

The good part about seeing this series?
Now I want to see Haruma in a Taiga drama~~

I didn't find the drama itself that amazing, it was actually quite boring for me. But Miura was AMAZING! He was able to portray both a character that for me was ridiculous and which I would never even look at and, 30 seconds later, be a super cool and sexy samurai D:

Such a classic! One of the most hilarious dramas I've ever come across. Watched the whole thing twice already but it may be time to settle in for a third. This is one to watch in Japanese. Translated subs just wouldn't cut it because so much of its charm and humour would likely be lost.

this is beyond ridiculous... i mean, they are overdoing everything (typical for jdramas) and well, they have like, 7 teachers in their school. and what is that, is that policeman the only one there is in their neighbourhood? and i really like miura but let's be serious, his character is so simple that i can't help being disappointed all the time.
