Fresh out of college, Kumiko "Yankumi" Yamaguchi becomes a math teacher at an all-boys high school. Unfortunately for her, she's assigned by the school board as the homeroom teacher for class 2-D, which happens to be the class of delinquent students. When the class attempts to make a living hell out of Yankumi's career, they fail as her persistence and aggression gain their respect. However, little does anyone in the school know that Yankumi is actually heir to the Kuroda Group - one of Tokyo's most powerful yakuza clans.

I really adore this series. Seriously, give it a shot. It has its weird moments, like the ones with Shin and Fuji, but it's definitely worth all of them. I only regret that there weren't more moments between

Yankumi and Shin. However, that wouldn't have worked out since she would never let the line between student/teacher get crossed.

Oh, but
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it'd be great if there was a sequel where they focused on the blooming romance between Yankumi and Shin while he's going through law school.
That just might be romantic wishful thinking ;D

I'm actually surprised that I haven't commented on this manga before now. I'm on my way to reading it for the third time, and I'm so excited! When I read it the first few times, I laughed so hard I cried. Like it's often mentioned, there isn't much romance, but Shin's such a trooper! I, too would have liked there to be more romance, but it's a great manga as it is.
Don't let the art dissuade you from reading Gokusen! I didn't like it to begin with, either, but it's really a great medium for the story, and I can't imagine it being drawn any other way. I'm quite fond of it now!
About the drama: I was really disappointed. The manga had more romance than the drama did! Romance wasn't a thing in the drama. I couldn't even finish watching it!
Anyway, read this or your life will be lacklustre! bigrazz

No words to express how awesome this is. Hilarious, action-packed and you won`t even put it down. I`ve been reading it for the past 8 hours and it`s 4 in the morning and I just finished! I wish there was more, a bit more. The ending was a bit abrupt but the story will never get you bored. Wish there was more Kumiko/Shin romance :">

As the title says.
It was a good read, it really was. But for it's story, it's way too long. There's too much pointless filler, needless specials (what the heck was up with the SawadaxFuji ones??), and incredibly unnecessary story arcs. In its defense, though, it was very funny (I actually laughed out loud at times, very rare in my case), and the characters all had a lot of spunk. The romance felt a little shoehorned in, but it did give a little more oomph to it. Also, I liked

that the students were the ones who were more often being rescued.

The art... well, it does improve a little bit from the beginning. It's hard to get used to that aspect, but I've certainly seen worse.
It's got its rough patches, but it's still a great read.

I think I tried picking this up three times, and kept on putting it down again after the first chapter because of the art. But honestly... read this. When I finally started reading it for real, I couldn't put it down. It's so funny at times, and Yankumi is really cool. By the tenth chapter, I didn't even care about the art anymore. Honestly, if you read this, you won't regret it; it's funny, sweet, interesting, and has really good moments in it. Go read this now!

Gokusen is one of those manga series' that you start off being not so sure about, but end up finishing before you even have a chance to blink. There are some cultural references sprinkled throughout the series, but not enough to distract the reader. The teacher, Yamaguchi Kumiko (a.k.a. "Yankumi") is a funny, honest, highly respectable-type character that I often find myself looking for in most comedy-type series. I really like the fact that although she's tough, she's not invincible (which is awesome), and she really gives a crap about the people that most others are all too eager to toss aside.

I was able to get my hands on the Japanese quite a few years back and, like many others, was not too impressed with the art work. But the mangaka does improve the character design quite a bit towards the middle of the series. The funny thing about that the time she did, I was so into the story that I hadn't even noticed. LOL.

It's definitely worth reading for those who aren't too reliant on romance (there are a few VEEEEERY subtle encounters throughout the series, and the specials allude to more romance) and just want to read something that's good and makes you laugh, then I highly recommend this series.

Not a fan of the dramas and the movie though...although Nakama Yukie does bear a striking resemblence to Yankumi. It's almost kinda scary...

Also, it it just me, or does anyone else believe that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Wada Kyousuke is Kumiko's dad? I know what he told her himself, but...

Anyway, yeah. Great series here.

As an art lover, I judge manga by their art. So the beginning art doesn't appeal to me. But with the recommendations from my online friends, I began reading it with a little hesitation. Alas, another manga I judge by the cover. The story was hilarious. The characters made it even more hilarious. And the first chapter didn't help either with that last line that literally wowed me away. I got hooked afterward.

We first start out with Kumiko Yamaguchi, who began her teaching career at an all-boys high school. Unfortunately, she got the worst classroom of all, full of delinquents and troublemakers. The students greeted her with pranks and tough-attitude in trying to scare her, yet they have yet to know that she was actually the heir to one of Tokyo's most powerful yakuza clan, the Kuroda Group.

The art does improve as the story goes on, so that's a big plus. Like I said, don't judge this manga by its art. The storyline and the characterizations are the 2 powerful force that helps pave this manga onward. I got tons of laughter (that my family is wondering what is their crazy daughter doing in the middle of the night), a couple of tears, and tons more of smiles as I read this manga to the end. This is one of the classic manga that I'll recommend to all of my friends.

So what are you waiting for? Start reading and laugh your heart out!

It reminded me a bit of GTO with a female lead. (And I love GTO!!!)
But while GTO is, at times, deeper and Onizuka's students have graver problems, in my oppinion, Gokusen is funnier. Mostly because of Yankumi's family.

The art, while not great, is ok. But in my oppinion, the art is secondary to the story, anyway.

Its a pretty decent series. The art in the beginning is rough, but don't let that put you off because by the time the series ends its evolved and its really nice and polished. Its like night and day. Early on the stories are a bit repetitive, but again it gets better and also more polished as well. Its basically an all around fun series, you can't go wrong with it.

The Anime was not too bad either, but it doesn't go all the way to the end of the manga.

i love manga with humor, romance, tons of action, and a fun story line. this reminds me of Yankee kun to megane chan but ALOT BETTER!!! i never laughed so much from a manga and felt moved at the same time! the story line is consecutive but there's always something new that makes the series such fun! and you'll love the romance in this's not too much or too little, but just'll really see it through the actions and words of the characters. and i love strong female characters both mind and body and the lead in this manga is great! she's funny and strong!! READ THIS MANGA! you'll love it!!!
