Sakaki Makio, also known as "Tornado" is a tough 27-year-old high school drop-out. By academic standards, he's pretty dumb. His father decides to force Makio to return to high school to receive his diploma and he asks an old friend who happens to be the principal of a nearby school to admit Makio. If Makio doesn't graduate, the position of boss will be given to his younger brother, Mikio.

Furthermore, he must pose as a 17-year-old during school hours and in the presence of any classmates or teachers outside of school. If his cover is blown, it would be the end of his high school career as well as his hopes to become boss. Things start out rough and tough as Makio's violent temper is tested. As the lessons and days go by he learns there is much more to school than just tests and studying.

My Boss My Hero

This drama is SO funny! Drama wiki says 'Loosely based on a 2001 South Korean film Doosabu Ilchae starring Jung Joon Ho. This drama uses the international title of the said film. The Korean title refers to a saying: "The boss, the teacher and the father are one". Doosabu Ilche spawned a 2006 sequel: Twosabu Ilchae (known as My Boss, My Teacher overseas).'. I read comments from people that they loved this version so much more than the korean film. So much funnier too, IMO.

I only gave the acting an 8 because Nagase Tomoya doesnt do anything new by acting mob like or have exaggerated expressions (like his character in Mukodono and Mukodono 2003). BUT he does a good job of getting laughs! He actually pulls it off as having a crush on a VERY young girl. Fine, he doesnt pass off as a high school student but that is what is funny! They keep joking about his looks in the drama such as how he has so much body and facial hair for a high school student!

I think the other actors and actresses did a good job in acting. They all helped in making Nagase Tomoya's character funnier. I especially LOVED how Tanaka Koki acted as his side kick henchman-- he kept wanting to beat up all the people who would talk to his 'boss' or treat his 'boss' a certain way.

The music is good of course because I am a fan of the opening and ending songs Nagase Tomoya's band (TOKIO) sing.

If you are looking for a light drama with a lot of laughs, watch this cute comedy. I think you wont be disappointed. Just be ready for Nagase Tomoya's slapstickness -- just keep in mind his character is so DUMB that he cant even add 5 +5 + 5 and it will all be OK! Hahahaha! :-D

Yet another yakuza going to school

Story:
The concept isn't different considering how many of these dramas there are out there. I wonder if gang/ yakuza/mob/delinquints really do go back to school and do all these things... of course not! Joking. I'm sure some do.

Anyway, what I really liked about this drama was the comedy, which didn't start until the second episode. The first episode was boring, but it was more of a orientation epi so I'll forgive.

Acting:
Tomoya pretty much carries the drama on his shoulders, but special mentions go to the supporting actors - koki, yui, and yuya.

Music:
There was music?! Exactly. It's forgettable.

Overall:
I recommend it because it really is funny. Tomoya's facial expressions sometimes reminded me of Jim Carrey.
