University graduate Yamaguchi Kumiko's first teaching assignment is at Shirokin High School, an all-boys school renowned for being full of [[JapaneseDelinquents delinquents]]. She is put in charge of the worst class in the school -- class 2-D. Fortunately, teaching and helping delinquents has always been her dream, and as she is heiress to a {{Yakuza}} group, she is more than equipped enough to handle any trouble a bunch of snot-nosed kids can cause.

Schools aren't tolerant of gangs and people of dangerous backgrounds, so Kumiko's relationship to her yakuza family must remain a secret. Unfortunately for her, there is one extremely smart and disgruntled {{Bishonen}} in her class full of idiots, Sawada Shin. He sees through her very poor cover-up and realizes that she is an ActionGirl. His demands for a fight are mocked by Kumiko, after which Shin's respect and passing interest only grows.

The manga was serialized in YOU, a {{josei}} magazine, and while it does have many {{shonen}} elements it is noticeably geared more towards females and fanservice is kept to a minimum though there are some notable exceptions. The anime adaptation has been licensed for release in North America and can be found in retail outlets with larger anime sections. The multiple seasons of the live-action television drama, however, remains locked behind the language barrier.

Gokusen is fairly similar to ''Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka'' in premise -- become trustworthy to the delinquents and teach them lessons through "{{tough love}}". However, Kumiko is properly educated and her secret background plays a large part in the series -- for example, her students think she is in debt to yakuza because of one of her poor cover-up excuses, and she brings in a rather conspicuously shady fellow when she suddenly needs to tutor her students in boxing.
