Gokusen 3 ごくせん Ep2 Screen Caps

The episode opens with Kumiko played by Nakama Yukie (Gokusen, Itazura na Kiss) giviving a monologue about herself and the class she’s taken over this spring. The two students who have been giving her the most trouble are Ogata Yamato played by Takaki Yuya (Shabake) and Kazama Ren played by Miura Haruma (Unfair, Binbo Danshi), the two battling for leadership of the class. At Kumiko’s house, her grandfather Kuroda Ryuichiro played by Utsui Ken (Yamada Taro Monogatari, Gokusen) wants to know how the the new class is. Kumiko tells him that this time they’re formidable and the underlings all want to go to school to teach the students some respect for their teacher. But Kumiko refuses the offer and her grandfather tells her that it’s only been a week and the students are probably trying to figure out what kind of teacher she is.

I said in my post about episode one that not much had changed in season three except for some faces, but that’s not really correct this time the story has the added conflict element amongst the class itself with the rivalry between Ogata and Kazama. If you liked the first two seasons of Gokusen, I’m sure you’ll find plenty here to like as well, it’s been getting very high ratings in Japan.
