Rookies ルーキーズ EP.2 Screen Shots

Kawato Koichi played by Sato Ryuta (Utahime, Bambino!) arrives at school at the same time as Aniya Keiichi played by Ichihara Hayato (Long Love Letter), who stops to watch two of baseball club members tossing a ball on the field before heading over to the club room, as the principal played by Ibu Masato (Detective Conan 2, Hataraki Man) observes them all from his office window. At the club room four of the members manage to pick the lock, but they aren’t happy when the get inside all of their stuff is gone, Aniya walks in happy that the couch is still there. Sekikawa and Mikoshiba Toru played by Koide Keisuke (Nodame Cantabile, Gokusen 2) enter and Sekikawa informs them that anything not related to club activities has been removed, Wakana wants to know if he’s serious about playing baseball. Both Sekikawa and Toru try to persuade them to give Kawato a chance but the other guys aren’t convinced.

This show is really looking an awful lot like GTO to me. The passionate teacher who’s a bit odd arrives and one by one he wins over the students of the class. Kawato’s a little more gullible then Onizuka but appears to be a little smarter. The students are a bit more delinquent then the GTO’s but not as devious. I’ll probably keep watching this show but I doubt I’ll post about it again unless the plot diverts from GTO’s in a significant manner. If you haven’t seen GTO, I’d highly recommend that you watch that.
