Finally finished 3 Nen A Gumi! Really dragged out watching this one, I started watching it in January but ended up only finishing it today :,,)
So the context for this one is: Hiiragi Ibuki (Masaki Suda) is a schoolteacher. But he's barricaded himself — and his students — in the school, using bombs and break-proof windows and guns and knives to seal off their contact with the outside world. He threatens their death if anyone gets in his way. But to the students he claims he is conducting a 10-day-long class, one that is vital to their graduation. Before the barricading incident, a student from this class had passed away. Hiiragi uses MindVoice, an SNS platform, to mobilise the internet to think about what had caused her passing — "Let's Think." The drama tackles really important topics I feel — social responsibility especially in the age of the internet and social media, where what we do behind our screens anonymously can really affect other people; thinking, before acting, regardless of whether its on social media or real life.
--- a more personal review / reflection starts from here !! Reading from here on would probably spoil the plot because what I'll say probably relates to it, so proceed with caution!!!!! . I would really (really) recommend watching this drama though. I thought it was very sensitively done, insightful and particularly important and relevant today. ---
