I just had to share this - I’ve just stumbled over this live action drama TV series (on YouTube); it’s really quite humorous and you can learn quite a lot because it follows the story of a Japanese teacher teaching … gaijin. So if you ever wanted to take Japanese classes but couldn’t afford to go to Japan, this series is made for you!
Mm, since I don’t know the manga and I generally like the cheese japanese tv shows (家政婦のミタ was the last show I watched, and I thought that there was a lot more overacting than this), I would give this show my blessings. I do find it quite useful for listening practice and even learning vocabulary and/or phrases. But that’s just me watching the first few episodes.
Oh, I watched several episodes a while ago! It wasn’t a masterpiece, sure, but it’s worth a try. I can’t remember how helpful it was, though, because it was quite some time ago. Maybe I’ll give it another look.
I watched it a while ago too, but didn’t finish. It was cool enough to continue watching. As a Portuguese, I loved those parts of the series where they mentioned the Portuguese influence in the Japanese language ^^
