Hammer Session!

Two prisoners managed to escape after the police truck carrying them crashed on the highway. One of them , Mr Sawazaki is a gangster who has sent 10 different bosses to hospital. The other called "You" - our protagonist - is a con artist whose cheating profile has piled up to approximately 100 billion yen. Accidentally, "You" then becomes the new teacher for the nearby high school, under the new name Takeda Shindo, and according to a deal of "Hammer Session" with the headmaster.

The story is about a teacher who has a past record as a con-artist. It has its own unique taste, which makes it distinctive from other series about teachers, such as GTO and Gokusen.

This series is really great, much better than GTO in my opinion. However, I think comparing them seems unfair because except the "accidental teacher" plot, they share nothing in common.

First chapters were great, both in terms of art and plot. However as the story progressed I think the author gradually ran out of ideas. From vol 5 or 6, this series started to deviate from a "teacher" plot and gradually fell more into the "comedy/action/martial arts" categories. That being said, there were still teacher/student subplots, and the students still got their lessons at the end of every chapter, but why they were able to understand the lessons, and change that much, was more and more a mystery to me. In other words, I feel later volumes were increasingly lack of character development.

However, this is still a fun manga to read. It can make you laugh until the very end (I mean vol 11). The art is gorgeous, and the fighting scenes are as lively and fresh as from the 1st chapter. Hence my 9/10 ratings.

The first few volumes is great, but after a while, it gets a bit repetitive. GTO has something around the corner that surprise you like Onizake becomes a terrorist and etc. Plus, there is a line of memorable side characters. This is more like come and go. There aren't any interesting side characters (students) and his "scam" isn't that interesting afterward.

But this is a good series

It is very good and educational. I just think that the author ended this series toooooo soon. It seems like this author just end this series. Other than that, this is wonderful.
