(<i think,? i dont remember the exact whole thing but its almost the same) thats why.. im waiting for him because he said that "i'm not going to lose either"...

YES, there is... in the manga & a little bit in the anime...

"In the Special Manga 2008, Sawada was a top student of Toudai University and he has a stable life and job as he's seen taking Yankumi out for a movie with his own car and constantly flirting with her, stating why he was so cooperative with her back then was because he fell in love with her at first sight and set up their casual meeting to turn it into a date. For the first time he is shown with emotion when one of Yankumi's new students trick her to fight a gang of bikers and he goes off to save her - he managed to save her and Yankumi finally returned his feelings, and they ended up kissing."

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.



Actually a the end of the season, in I think one of the last episodes. Everyone is outside including her family. Shinhora-san, tetsu talk about how they are rivals for her love, and then Shin comes in and says that they should add him into the rivalry because he likes her too. And then that weird sunglasses cop says that he now has three rivals for Yamaguchi's love.So it not really until the end but it does mention it. And in the manga, its mentioned all the time that Shin likes her.

When I was watching the drama, I thought they will have a relationship...
I think they changed the part where shin likes Yankumi because they want to emphasize student-teacher relationship rather than an intimate one...
and for me it's better to be that way because it's not morally accepted if there will be a relationship (bf-gf) between a student and a teacher...

I guess it's too late for that to happen.. they already made a TV drama special [Gokusen Special: Sayonara 3-nen D-gumi] after season 1 of Gokusen where the entire cast of that season got back together.. but nothing happened between Shin & Yankumi.. T__T

Here's what i got from my research:

With “Gokusen: The Movie” less than a couple months away, a new announcement has revealed that six more actors from the drama’s earlier seasons will be returning, including Shun Oguri and Mocomichi Hayami. The movie is already known to focus on the cast of the show’s third season, which aired in 2008. It was previously announced that Yuya Takaki, Haruma Miura, and Yuta Tamamori are part of the main cast. At the end of last month, it was also revealed that the second season’s Kazuya Kamenashi was added to the cast. Now, the number of returning alumni has again increased, adding three students each from the drama’s first two seasons. Oguri will represent the first season, along with Yuma Ishigaki and Hiroki Narimiya. From the second season, Hayami will be joined by Teppei Koike and Keisuke Koide. Although all six played delinquent students in their respective seasons, they have grown up to become respectable members of society. Together with Kamenashi’s character, who has become a teacher in training, these graduates will lend their support to the beloved teacher “Yankumi,” played by starring actress Yukie Nakama. This movie is said to be Nakama’s last time to take on this role. [source: http://www.nipponcinema.com/trailers/gokusen_trailer/]

NO WAY!!!! Are you serious??? So in the manga (official storyline)... Yankumi and Shin hooks up in lip lock??? Shocker!!! But another shocker is Yankumi being brutally beaten... she never gets beaten in any of the fights in the drama. But she looks bruised up in the attached link. Thanks for sharing.

in the anime shin confesses to liking yankumie too. he is jealous of her family's lawyer that yankumie is crushing on. i heard aya ueta will take over the role of yankumie in the drama series. so that probably means gokusen 4 in the future.

I really like the last volume of the manga where Shin has stepped up his interest in Yankumi.

As for the live action version, well, the love story may never really crop up....

but you never know since Odagiri Riu is supposed to be the Shin version in Gokusen 2

and he is in the movie as well. I hear he's a teacher here. I was really hoping for Matsumoto Jun

to be in it but still I look forward to the movie.

Yes, Shin and Yankumi finally get together in the Special Chapter of the manga. You should

read the last volume of the manga...Shin really shows his feelings for Yankumi in this chapter.

And yes, she does get beat up sometimes in the manga...when she got sick and

when she sacrifices for her students.
