Just some trivia I found that I thought was interesting!!!

-Gokusen is an abrevation of Gokudo no Sensei which means Gangster Teacher.

-Teruo Kumai is nicknamed "Kuma" (Bear) not only because it's a derivative of his last name, but also because he tends to look, act and eat like a bear.

-In epi. 11, Yankumi confiscated mangas from her students. Two to three of those were Gokusen mangas.

-The Graduation Special was aired 9 months later in March 2003 after the series ended in June 2002. All of the original cast were retained.

-Season 2 was aired January-March 2005, 2 years and 6 months after the series and 1 year and 9 months after the special. Some of the original cast were retained. Like Yankumi's family(her grandpa, Wakamatsu, Minoru, Tetsu & Shigeru), Vice Principal and of course the only remaining student of Yankumi in season 1, Kumai Teruo aka KUMA.

-If you take a look around the classroom during episode 10, you can see a lot of cartoons of Yankumi. There's some at her podium, board, left side of wall when facing class, and the wall right behind the students as you are facing them.

-The insert song was sung by Kamenashi Kazuya of KAT-TUN

-Ishiguro Hideo who plays Honjo Kengo also played the role of Yabuki Taku (Hayato's brother) in episode 8 of Season 2
