HAMMER SESSION!

  • Title: HAMMER SESSION!
  • Genre: School
  • Episodes: 11
  • Broadcast network: TBS
  • Synopsis: Two prisoners managed to escape after the police truck carrying them crashed. One of them ,is a gangster. The other called “Otowa YonKo” – our protagonist – is a con artist whose cheats money from criminals or terrorists. Accidentally, “Otowa Yonko” then becomes the new teacher for the nearby high school, under the new name “Hachisuka Goro”, and according to a deal of “Hammer Session” with the headmaster.

Yet another Japanese school drama, but with a twist.  The students’ teacher is a con artist who is putting his conning skills to good use and whipping his students into shape.  Sound interesting? Well it should because it is.  I love the refreshing plot. However, it isn’t new or anything since this is a live action drama for the Hammer Session! manga (written by Tanahashi Namoshiro and illustrated by Koganemaru Yamato).

Although I may not exactly have gotten ‘addicted’ to this series, it was still fun to watch and was great for just passing time. I didn’t have to force myself to finish this series at all.  It’s cute, yet cool at the same time for having a swindler in it. But I must admit, there is some really over exaggerated acting in it.

My Rating: (3.5/5)
