ごくせん/The Gokusen episodes 1–5

[Screenshot]Gokusen ended up in my queue because it’s ostensably josei, a genre I’m interested in, but didn’t give me much to judge the genre as a whole on. It’s pretty fun, albeit a bit colorless: it’s got a wacky premise but honestly doesn’t go very far with it. It’s a good anime to watch while shutting your brain off, really, a moderately interesting wrinkle on an Azumanga Daioh-esque high school hijinx series. I don’t really have too much to say about it: it’s fun but not fun enough to really rise above the crowd as far as comic series go.
