    Nice Story and Good Quality
    If I could rate each aspect, I'd rate like this:
    - Story: 9
    - Acting: 7
    - Sound: 8
    - Visuals: 9

    Definitely deserves 4 stars because this story is very interesting and more realistic than what it seems, though sometimes the acting lacks something and it feels kinda fake, but depends on the actor/actress mostly. The sound track is good and imo it fits very well in ...

    Hoping for a season 2 on this one
    This was much better than I expected. With so many high school dramas, there is a lot of "bleh" dramas, but this one stood out for me. Not so much for the high school parts, but for the personal back story of our heroine, who was able to get her life back together by going back.

    Drama Worth the 5 Stars
    I am quite impressed with this drama.
    I'll admit, I came into watching it with low expectations, but this drama became a 5 star for me.
    It's funny, emotional, and engaging.
    My only complaint is that Crunchyroll should display a trigger warning as there are frequent mentions of suicide, self harm, etc.
    Wonderful! Can't wait for more!

    No Dropping Out -Back to School at 35-

    I was browsing Crunchyroll's drama section when I came across No Dropping Out -Back to School at 35-. A 35 year old women named Baba Ayako returns to highschool. I found this interesting, as I have never seen a plot like this before. I thought this would be mediocre. However, I was dead wrong this was excellent. This drama deals with the nasty ...

    NEW vs OLD: The new school age
    I really enjoyed the series. The problems they bring up can be solved so easily but nowadays you "just can't do that". Baba is the only person with a reasonable mind. I know if those problems were to be solved like that in American schools, you'd just get punched no doubt lol

    Something about this.
    I absolutely love this show.
    I wasn't expecting much, but after watching the first episode I was blown away.
    This show was definitely not what I had initially expected and I really enjoyed it.

    Interesting concept, but flawed execution
    The amount of screen time Baba Ayako had made her a very relate-able character. She was the voice of reason as well as the back bone to each of the supporting character. The supporting characters lack a brain and drive to take any form of action. If Japanese high school students now a days are a bunch of ungrateful kids then The writer did a great job of that. Otherwise, character development was ...

  • Skillfully woven subtleties
    A pretty amazing story once it gets going.

    At first I felt a little irritated that our protagonist was, as a character, hidden from us as watchers. But I came to understand there was a lot more that the writers were telling than they let on. Watching the series a second time will show how much was out in the open. However the first time through, even when we knew literally nothing about her, ...

  • A Fun and Interesting Ride!
    Some basics:
    Trigger warnings: discussions and attempts of suicide, bullying (which is the major crux of the show).
    This series has elements of both drama and humor.
    Some of the acting is stiff or over-the-top, but much of it is pretty well done.
    There will be a few plot holes! Ignore them and just have fun.

    Thoughts:
    I can't believe this series wrapped up in 11 episodes. I had no idea ...

    Once you start, you can't stop.
    It was the most interesting drama I have ever watched. Baba is one heck of a character, solving problems of your peers and carrying a problem of her own at the same time, LADY HOW DO YOU DO IT?! I know its not real but when I was watching it, I was so into it that I thought I was actually in it.
