What’s a Yanki?

The way they dance is almost like Para Para – but manlier.
Sometimes Ouendan cheer on love confessions! Where did the Japanese fascination with confessing one’s love start? Was it the Tale of the Genji?
The Manga Love Roma actually starts with a love confession.

Are there Ouendan in Water Boys?
Erin: Water Boys is not the Fireman series, called Fireman and released in English by Viz – there’s also a live action drama. Called Sea Monkeys, or Omisaru or Water Dogs
Noah: The live action drama may not be called Water Boys, but it *is* called Fire Boys, which yes, is an adaptation of Megumi no Daigo, but still, it isn’t *called* Megumi no Daigo. So there.
Are high school teachers in Japan much younger than uh… mine were?
