This was a great series in some aspects, fun, entertaining, some action, good characters... but at the same time if fails in a few important points, imo the ending sucks, in more than one way
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
basically, because Shinohara and Shin don't really compete in the end. Luckily the specials came out but even so there is a gap and a very important one which is not covered, so it goes from Shin confessing straight to them dating already or something like that, it's not very clear, and that sucks imo
and second, because it dragged more than necessary, there are a lot of fillerish things going on of zero importance, if the author had so much chapters to waste, a decent ending would have been a way better choice.

This manga is one of the rare works that can be called 'complete'. It truly never does let you down, as 99% of mangas do. It was entertaining, comedic and touching. It has one of the more satisfying endings (including the special chapters following the main storyline), but it still leaves you wanting for more. That just shows how great it is.

For those commenting on the art, I was one of those who originally dropped it because I couldn't get used to the art. But once I picked it up again and got over it, I have to say that there is not much to regret. Wonderful manga from this author.

It's worth the all nighter! Sad to say the drama does it no justice. The drama's good...no great! But this... THIS IS SPECTACULAR!!! The only flaw is that I don't know how it end for the couple! What about that guy talking to Shin and Yukumi at the end? At least not a cliff-hanger or the treacherous axed ending! Those make me "CRAY". Anyway it's a 10

I've read literally hundreds of different mangas, but this is and always will be my favorite. the Gokusen anime is my favorite anime, too, simply because it came from this manga. the dorama, not so much, but it still holds a special place in my heart.

the art isn't great in the beginning, but it gets better and you'll be so drawn in by the story that you won't care anyway. and is it funny! i've re-read Gokusen more times than i can count but i still LOL each time.

I have two great dreams regarding this manga: 1) that the manga-ka writes us a sequel showing the development of the ShinKumi relationship (yes I'm a shipper) and 2) that this series will be licensed and released officially in English so that i no longer need to hurt my eyes staring at scanlations on my computer screen during my periodic gokusen binges. oh, and so that i can help support the mangaka.

so yeah, read it. you will not regret it. unless you're one of those 15 people who gave it a 1. then you obviously need help.

I saw the anime long before reading the manga, I wish they would (or have) completed the anime, it followed the manga closely but was different enough for you to enjoy. But i'd recommend this to anyone.

It got a little boring around end volume 4, but picks up again and stays real entertaining. It's not perfect, but the humor and atmosphere is pretty good! Too bad the school didn't go co-ed, and the conclusion was a little underwhelming.

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 :">
