Hmmm, I appreciate your style and the concept is good but the violence is over the top. While fighting will always be a natural part of their lives, I felt like the fic had a bit too much senseless violence on Kumiko's part. That isn't her character at allll. She fights with honour and yes if she's flustered she may lash out. But I can't ever see her constantly laying into Shin like this just because she's coming to terms with her feelings for him. It was literally a never ending assault, like she's an animal incapable of self control. Even if there was that under current of sexual tension it was marred by Kumiko's irrational behaviour.
But at the end of the day it's your interpretation. Thanks for the fic!

Haha, Shin as a kept man. But that doesn't mean he won't hesitate to fight back. I keep wincing at the parts with the fighting scenes because ouch, shounen anime usually gloss over violence and pain that results from such things. I was too young to remember anything concrete about the Gokusen anime apart from Shin Sawada's face, ditto for the live actions. But I was really pumped up when my sister and I read that manga special of Gokusen. The ship I low-key loved sailing away. And with a painstakingly put together canon compliant fic to top it off.
(Florence and the Machine. It's been years since I've known them through mentions but it's only when I watched their live performance that I can understand why people like them)

Yankumi is so hilarious. I love how she's constantly freaking out when she had to deal with the possibility of romantic entanglements.

Shin made a major faux paus and he kind of deserved to get punched for that. He didn't do well at all. Poor Yankumi; she's so out of depth here.

They're so violent. It's rather scary. I honestly hope it isn't a thing that will prevail their relationship the longer they're together.
Anyway, I like how you tied together the manga ending with the onseshots released afterward. This was pretty epic. Kumiko is so frustrating though, I can't imagine what Shin was feeling since he had to go through it himself.
The fact that she made him fight her is characteristic of a super dense and stubborn Kumiko, which I think is somewhat contradicting the development she underwent in the manga. I was sure she became slightly more reasonable at the end. I mean, she did let the guys give her a makeover.
Still, this was awesome and I greatly enjoyed reading!

This story was so amazing, neither Shin or Yankumi were OOC, the writing style is really great and the scene with "better a kiss with a fist then nothing at all" made me almost cry, but all the scences between Shin and Yankumi were so beautiful written and Shins conversations with Hiroki were great as well. Conclusion: I really really loved it!

WOW! That was just... wow!
MY GOD WOMAN D: WHY ARE YOU SO GODDAMN VIOLENT!? That thought kept racing through my head the entire time I was reading this :P And then... oh God this is sexy. Loooooool, I really really loved it.
Yankumi and Shin were very in-character when they weren't fighting and it was very, very sweet seeing the softer side to their relationship. As usual, Yankumi has no clue whatsoever and yet her entire family and everyone else is rooting for the Shinkumi team ;) I loved the added bonus of Fujiyama and Shin's university student :) It just feels very rounded when there's a whole lot of other opinions mixed into the soup :3 Dominatrix *nosebleed* LOL
While I loved the action scenes and the fights, there were 2 things puzzling me throughout the story. Yes, Yankumi is violent and short-tempered at the best of times, but I don't think she would go to the extent as described in the story, although THAT was interesting and fun to read :) As well as exasperating. She was also very adamant about ONLY using fists both in the manga and your first chapter, so why did she start resorting to throwing vases and plates at Shin's head? That contradiction and hypocrisy kind of turned me off a little. I got really pissed off at her rudeness too when she wanted to kick Shin out :P That was... low. Very low.
Other than that, WOW! :) Yes, dear God Shin is hot. And Yes, bdsm isn't that uncommon now :P Look at 50 Shades of Gray (Although the book sucks). So, I really loved this story, although it broke my heart at time (LOL) and then sewed it right back up (DOUBLE LOL). You're a fantastic writer and I hope another Gokusen inspiration hits you soon :) More BAMF Yakuza Shin perhaps? I love reading your work.

I hate to point out, but your intrigue could use a little back-up, since a phone-call would have assured Shin of Yankumi's help without all that drama, in the beginning and ... Shin always seems to have a cell
