Two prisoners managed to escape after the police truck carrying them crashed on the highway. One of them, Imamura Shouhei is a gangster who has sent 10 opposite bosses to hospital. The other called Yazwa Yuu—our protagonist—is a con artist whose cheating profile has piled up to approximately 100 billion yen. Accidentally, Yuu then becomes the new teacher for the nearby junior high school, under the new name Hachisuka Gorou, and according to a deal of "Hammer Session" with the headmaster.

tl;dr: A manga with a a really fun and interesting swindler of a teacher, but that is pretty lacking in terms of the characters and story surrounding him.

This manga is about an incredibly swindler named Yuu serving as a teacher. He and a fellow prisoner manage to escape while being transported, and while on the run they end up at Hikari Academy middle school. Due to various circumstances the principal takes a liking to Yuu and thus he asks him to take on the identity of Hachisuka Gorou, a new teacher that was supposed to start the next day but would now simply assist Yuu ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (10/96 eps)
If you read Great Teacher Onizuka there's nothing to be had by reading this manga.
The focus isn't as much on the class however, as it is on the main protagonist, that's a conman and oh he's so good at doing his thing, and he daringly solves problem after problem with his class, in a way that's very unexpected (really he's just conning people).
I get it that it feels nice when protagonist has everything under control, but there's no comedy in here, no ecchi (well, unless we count windy skirt flips ecchi), and generally the whole thing feels a bit bland.

That said, it still seems enjoyable ...
