  1. ahhmmmm…it’s not as if i’m not confident with Ryuhei’s acting, in fact I like him as an actor, but the idea of him being Nube-sensei is just so unsettling to me. I love Hell Teacher Nube and he was one of my anime crushes. Though it was a long time ago but I still love the anime version of this. But even with my skeptical view of the live action, I am still hoping for the success of this drama for the sake of my love for Teacher Nube. hehehe…


    • Hai! Mokomichi is there and that excites me. I have watched Hell Teacher Nube when I was in high school and that was a long long time ago. hehehe… Maybe, Ryuhei can pull it off well. We’ll, I may never know until the drama starts. But definitely, I will watch it. 🙂
