I never read the manga, but the drama was entertaining. Yankumi's character is adoreable. Sometimes, the drama strays from the original script of the manga... so here's a question for thought:

Was there a relationship that was somewhat present but overlooked and brushed aside between Yankumi and Sawada? When I say relationship, I mean a relationship that's a little more than teacher and student.

I know I'm not the only one that thinks that way, because I see little videos made on youtube sends out the idea that Sawada and Yankumi is an item. Those who saw the drama, however, knows that this relationship does not exist. Yankumi never saw Sawada romantically. Likewise for Sawada. But for some reason, as I was watching the drama.... I was expecting for some kind of forbidden romance to surface between the two. It never happened as the drama approach its end and was followed by one sequel after another.

Sawada's (Matsumoto Jun) character is the nonchalant, quiet, cool and handsome type of character. It parallels Rui's (Oguri Shun) character in Hana Yori Dango and Shin's (Joo Ji Hoon) character in Goong (Princess Hours). In Shida Mirai's new drama, Seigi no Mikata (I've only watched the first two episode), Kanata Hongo's character also reminds me of this character. What does the latter three character have in common? They fall in love for the strong willed female protagonist (Makino for HYD, Shin Chae-kyeong for Goong, and what I believed shall be Nakata Youko (Shida Mirai) in Seigi no Mikata's case, depending upon the progression of the Seigi no Mikata). What is similar in HYD, Goong, and SnM case? Makino (Mao Inoue), Chae-kyeong (Yoon Eun Hye), and Youko (Shida Mirai) amused Rui, Shin, Okamoto Riku (Kanata Hongo), respectively. They broke the males' cool exterior, and made them laugh or break a smile (that swoons the female viewers ) when thinking about them. Makino, Chae-kyeong, and Shida all have interesting personalities.

Before I digress... Yankumi's first caught Sawada's attention when she effortlessly caught a baseball being thrown at her behind her back. Hiding her background and her quirky teaching personality made her stand out to Sawada, and eventually amused Sawada.... along with the rest of 3 D who coined her Yankumi. It follows a similar cycle. Cool guy falls for the amusing and interesting female. Although the amusing and interesting female is not pretty in the drama sense (because in real life, these girls are considered beautiful), they still win over the heart throb in their respective drama.

But another thing to note is Yukie Nakama as the actress playing Yankumi. Yankumi's character has a cute personality... but her anime version is far from cute. Yukie Nakama, the actress, on the other hand is really pretty. So it was easier for me to tolerate Sawada and Yankumi's possible relationship in the sense that Matusmoto Jun and Yukie Nakama were the ones in the roles rather than the anime version of the two.

What do you guys think?? I tried to explain my thoughts clearly, but it may get confusing.

I read the manga, but never finished the drama. I feel that Yankumi & Sawada are more like buddies/pals in the way they can fully trust each other, but definitely not lovers. It's probably more accurate to say that they have mutual respect for each other.

The absence of love interest between the 2 is more apparent in the manga because Yankumi has serious crush on her family lawyer (I think in the drama the character is an inspector).

Actually at the end the detectives were starting to "fight" over yankumi including sawada but yankumi never saw sawada that way only one of her "precious" students.

In the manga there was sort of a relationship (shin admit that he had feelings for her) but they sort of brushed it off in the drama.

he's not int he third season? Boo, guess there's no reason to watch the third season anymore... I thought I read somewhere awhile back that he was supposed ot be int he third season..

Yeah in the drama they imply that Sawada likes her for more than a teacher, I don't think this happens in the manga, but I never finished the manga. I'm not sure how I feel about that relationship though, as I'll be student teaching next fall, the idea of student-teacher relationships kinda creeps me out.
