She covers up her background as a former hostess and goes to Class 2Z, the form class which she has been put in charge of, but the classroom is empty.

Karina as Tennoji Misaki
Mido Gakuen’s new teacher who is put in charge of Class 2Z, a class is full of problem children. She was actually the number one hostess of Roppongi’s ‘Club Southern Sea’ but suddenly became a teacher one day at the request of “Mama” whom she feels indebted to. Well-meaning and meddlesome, she cannot stand to ignore people who are in trouble. She became a hostess because her boyfriend is in debt. Although she has transformed into a high school teacher, she wears flashy clothes.

Fujigaya Taisuke as Kujo Kazuma

Kitayama Hiromitsu as Minato Ryosuke
A student in Class 2Z. The mood maker of the class because of his lively personality. A grown-up, cool guy in some respects. The famous partner who is able to restrain the reckless Kujo Kazuma.

Although he has a cheerful disposition, he has family problems behind the scenes.

Omasa Aya as Sakurai Yui
A student in Class 2Z. The only girl in the five member group and the most mature among them. She is a beauty but has a tough, boyish and candid personality who makes sharp digs at guys’ actions. Because she has been friends with Kujo Kazuma and Minato Ryosuke since elementary school, she is more at ease with Kujo and Minato than with girls, and finds them fun.

Ichikawa Tomohiro as Nagase Kyotaro
A student in Class 2Z. He has a quick temper and simple personality, not considering the consequences of his actions. A silly person who has a lovable character. Although he talks big, he is poor at fights for a person of his size.

The chief waiter at ‘Club Southern Sea’. His nickname is Ume-chan. He respects Tennoji Misaki as a hostess, and is in love with her as a woman.

Toda Keiko as Tsuruhashi Shizue
