    Show continues to be holding my interest. Plan to let my daughter whose been teaching 2nd graders in the states for 3 years know about the show. Also 1 very special person living in Tokyo who used to be a teacher there!

  14. ScottyM9991 Says:

    [..YouTube..] Love this series. Very well done. Particularly love the name of the school: Be Yes – very Engrish like.

  15. nielswolfgang Says:

    [..YouTube..] I’m really enjoying these, hope we see a lot more.

  16. Nemesis093781 Says:

    [..YouTube..] I like the idea of showing what the life of a teacher is like in Japan. I have watched plenty of youtube videos showing the challenges of working, and living in Japan. It is a great idea to make a series out of it. Thumbs up.

  17. ningchoo Says:

    [..YouTube..] I’m just a student but I love this series! Watched one episode and thought it was funny

  18. yukak0202 Says:

    [..YouTube..] 最後に出てきた人が気になる~!!!誰だろう~??早く続きが見たい~!!!(*^^)v

  19. DoloresMBernal Says:

    [..YouTube..] Good job. I like the fact that there is a show about this! Rock on. Also, please more Japanese would be nice, like the scene you had of him getting in the elevator was great.

  20. GogglesOfBiggles Says:

    [..YouTube..] Very disappointing third episode.

    The production is still good but the storyline has become banal (with non-sequiturs and plot holes appearing from nowhere) and the acting from some characters is so bad it’s distracting to the extreme.

    Plus, we’re now seeing adverts popping up during the episode and not just at the beginning and end. Very annoying!

    A shame. The first two episodes showed promise but this one really does dip.

  21. mrotaku869 Says:

    [..YouTube..] I love this it’s so funny my favorite character is Nevil but my favorit line is still from the first episode where Ms. Sawaguchi says “if we didn’t care we would teach them french” so so funny

  22. mrotaku869 Says:

    [..YouTube..] I love this it’s so funny my favorite character is Nevil but my favorite line is still from the first episode where Ms. Sawaguchi says “if we didn’t care we would teach them french” so so funny

  23. BusanKevin Says:

    [..YouTube..] Another wonderful show! I love this series guys :) Please keep it going!

  24. yumyumsesame Says:

    [..YouTube..] Pretty good! Will subscribe. :D I kinda agree that the acting isn’t super great… but then I’m sure it will get better as everyone gets more experienced. :)

  25. yukigatsu Says:

    [..YouTube..] I’m enjoying the series so far. There is definitely enough content to expand this out into a 24 minutes show. With a 5-6 minute run, it really only leaves enough time for plot and a small amount of scenes intended for humor.

    Like a few others said though, there are times when shows quality is kind of apparent, but you guys are doing great working with what you have so far. The show can only get better after all, there’s no such thing as perfect from the get go. I look forward to more.

  26. BeltlessTrenchcoat Says:

    [..YouTube..] haha the austarlian guy reminds me of “the silly old dude” from the youtube channel: youtube.com/thejapanchanneldcom. good stuff

  27. jescoboy Says:

    [..YouTube..] Lovin’ it! Keep it coming!

  28. Fayjay4 Says:

  29. thebebop87 Says:

    [..YouTube..] good stuff

  30. thebebop87 Says:

    [..YouTube..] good show

  31. TamsosPadaras Says:

    [..YouTube..] Interesting story and beautiful actresses ^_^

  32. jakesinjapan Says:

    [..YouTube..] this is great stuff. I’m glad i found it

  33. egoimperator Says:

    [..YouTube..] <3 it! but the episodes are soooo short and rare! I know there must be a huge work in this, because the quality is excellent, but could you make the episodes maybe longer? ^.^y

  34. silentbob890 Says:

    [..YouTube..] i am really digging this series

  35. tokiobunniprodigy Says:

    [..YouTube..] I think I’m addicted!! Best line: “When one door closes, open a window.”…LOVE IT!!

  36. CultureQuirk Says:

    [..YouTube..] This series is awesome! Can’t wait until the next episode :)

  37. chris Says:

    not good! can we say “bitter, whiney ex-nova teachers with too much time on their hands”? And the acting is terrible, and the writing is worse!

  38. totosbasket Says:

    [..YouTube..] 0:56 Let’s Tee!. Ha ha! Gotta love Mark.

  39. jtargetmarket Says:

    [..YouTube..] OK , I’ m a bit mystified by all the positive comments here.

    The start is so close to Modern Family you’d better hope their lawyers don’t see it.

    Or is it Arrested Development I’m thinking about…..

    Anyway this is clearly highly influenced by those two shows.
    Unfortunately the writing here is extremely poor. Its almost embarrassing to watch the whole way through.
    I guess if your target demographic is confined to “English Teachers in Japan” then its OK . But if not find some new writers.

  40. Boffo Says:

    It’s all over. I’m giving up. That was horrible. I didn’t think it could get worse, but it did. AND how low has it sunk. terrible acting, poor camera work, no jokes – not even bad ones and a really cheesy ending.

    Please stop producing and rewrite until you got something good.

  41. tokyotos1 Says:

    [..YouTube..] It really IS similar to Modern Family and also The Office, and in my opinion, that’s why it’s relevant and fun…I love the way it flows, so funny! Neville is very insightful and Ashley reminds me of Angela from the Office.
    Love the series – Keep up the good work, looking forward to the next!

  42. agordon121977 Says:

    [..YouTube..] Love all the Ninja stuff and the quotes about the windows and having faith.

  43. missy192 Says:

    [..YouTube..] I love when Ashley puts Neville down. Like when she called him a fruit loop in the last episode. =D

  44. englishseries Says:

    [..YouTube..] Episode 4 comes out on Oct. 30th!

  45. SmilingMaram Says:

    [..YouTube..] this is too short T^T

  46. Glassbeadcheese Says:

    [..YouTube..] Hahaha, so good

  47. Theytoldmetodoit1 Says:

    [..YouTube..] This is a great series. That was the first time I have heard a Brit on YouTube, in Japan use the word ‘wanker.’ Thumbs up just for that. We Brits love using that word…LOL!

  48. Drivenbyfate1 Says:

    [..YouTube..] Loving it. Keep em coming.

  49. whiteclecks Says:

    [..YouTube..] A mini-series with great potential I say :D
    I’m getting hooked, so simple yet so fun to watch ^^

  50. TSDT Says:

    [..YouTube..] @englishseries Pretty much anything Neville says makes me smile. You guys have really nailed his character and he really sets the series tone of being a little off-kilter and not necessarily a reflection of ZOMG THE GRITTY REALITTY OF ENGLISH TEACHGNIGGIN

  51. MewesK Says:

    [..YouTube..] Again, awesome episode. Best YT series I’ve ever seen. I even deactivate Adblock Plus on your video, hope it helps you to earn some money.

  52. MarioKArtAdd1ct Says:

    [..YouTube..] Don’t get me wrong, I love this series, but if you guys are gonna post them more than one week apart from one another, they need to be longer.

  53. CommenterGuy Says:

    Seems like the ultra-flat lighting style flatters Japanese skin and features but makes the gaijin look pasty and boring as hell.

  54. henryyydarkkk Says:

    [..YouTube..] @englishseries All of Mark’s scenes have been great :)

  55. William sensei Says:

    I am loving the show and wish I could have been a part of it! This may be premature, but any chance for a second season audition???
    I forwarded the link to a female Japanese friend who is a branch manager for an eikaiwa (“Neon”), and she enjoyed it too.

  56. Fayjay4 Says:

    [..YouTube..] @englishseries Thanks please post weekly 2 or 3 videos

  57. rLor3nzo Says:

    [..YouTube..] @englishseries “I guess now it’s my turn to have faith.”

  58. TheJapanChannelDcom Says:

    [..YouTube..] @BeltlessTrenchcoat
    Yes, that is one fine looking man! :-D

  59. BeltlessTrenchcoat Says:

    [..YouTube..] @TheJapanChannelDcom hahaha. you’re the man.

  60. NancyChikamatsu Says:

    [..YouTube..] yay!!! banzai!!!! I like this series. but but but it does takes time to release another new episodes

  61. Anonymous is everywhere Says:

    “Particularly love the name of the school: Be Yes – very Engrish like.”
    Think real hard about that, you may discover another joke.

  62. christofffrazier Says:

    [..YouTube..] Love it thanks, cant wait for the new episode.

  63. dukemon22 Says:

    [..YouTube..] Fantastic:)

  64. peachrosequartz Says:

    [..YouTube..] @englishseries maybe you can put a preview on what will happen on next episode!

  65. st4rlight90 Says:

    [..YouTube..] Hey guys, if it’s possible, please put a subtitle in english on the next videos. This will help a lot, cause it’s hard to me to understand what the britsh teacher says. Loving the videos!

  66. gcop33 Says:

    [..YouTube..] @englishseries 3.45” “now its my turn to have faith”

    Keep ‘em coming :D

  69. Joe Says:

    More please!

  70. misctube Says:

    [..YouTube..] @jtargetmarket Really? I was thinking more along the lines of a completely 4th wall The Office with the whole, almost closing the school conflict and then quirky characters. But I see what you mean by similar to Arrested too.

  71. NMRA Says:

    [..YouTube..] I didn’t see this in my subscription box..

  72. peruface Says:

    [..YouTube..] GOD DAMN YOUR HOT

  73. sargeantbanana Says:

    [..YouTube..] Great series! I’ll be waiting for the next episodes. I’d love to become an english teacher in Japan so I felt compelled to watch this.

  74. thepickledfish Says:

    [..YouTube..] wow this is amazingly well put together compared to most shows on youtube!!

  75. Sadude13 Says:

    [..YouTube..] great show guys

  76. telecalcu Says:

    [..YouTube..] I already hate the fat teacher and the mean bitch teacher. I hope they some how die in this story. and leave room for other nice teachers.

  77. babochureum Says:

    [..YouTube..] what did he say? efl ego?

  78. scablet Says:

    [..YouTube..] i’m rooting for eyeglass girl and ninja/water can guy…

  80. Mehlwurm18 Says:

    [..YouTube..] @peruface

  81. Mehlwurm18 Says:

    [..YouTube..] @peruface

  82. tomoko96962000 Says:

    [..YouTube..] My teacher of teacher said that the first thing a teacher should have was the patience.

  83. tomoko96962000 Says:

    [..YouTube..] My teacher of teacher said that the first thing a teacher should have was the patience.

  84. yokohamalion Says:

    [..YouTube..] This show is about as risque as a level 1 lesson. You have to be the most boring English teachers in Japan EVER!

  85. hoylguy11 Says:

    [..YouTube..] @tomoko96962000 That’s key, second is: to like teaching.

  86. Buenomars Says:

    [..YouTube..] 0:54 Soup opera?

  87. cuddl3cor3 Says:

    [..YouTube..] It’s nice to have something like this to watch after a long day of ALT work.

  88. clonecommander07 Says:

    [..YouTube..] NUGGET OF WISDOM

  89. RoderickGubla Says:

    [..YouTube..] @englishseries CANT WAIT! :D

  90. teachernoir Says:

    I love the show. I teach in korea and have to deal with the same sh*$. super funny

  91. nagoyatim Says:

    [..YouTube..] Nice stuff!!! Keep it up!!

  92. bundangbear Says:

    [..YouTube..] Here’s my freebie for you:

    The one thing this series is missing is the owner of the school, the real boss man who comes rarely but makes everyone tremble, who wears an impeccable suit and claims his mission “is to bring English to the Japanese people,” but can’t speak a word of English himself and makes the manager woman translate. We had one that was pure Yakuza. I mean, he was missing a pinkie!

  93. PolakInAKilt Says:

    [..YouTube..] @bundangbear 100%!

  94. gioxer Says:

    [..YouTube..] I enjoy the show!!!!

  95. gioxer Says:

    [..YouTube..] I enjoy the show!!!! the old teacher is using market leader ! hahahaha

  96. SingmetheSea Says:

    [..YouTube..] Love the show — I have to say, one of the things that draws me in is the lack of crass language. The only thing is, I wish I knew the main character better, but I guess he’ll get fleshed out as the series progresses.

  97. TheAbcsensei Says:

    [..YouTube..] Great show!

  98. TheCatherineLopes Says:

    [..YouTube..] good show i had learn something funny!!

  99. Ovidius89 Says:

    [..YouTube..] Really nice show. Japanese subtitles are great

  100. Lonna Says:

    These videos make me want to go to Japan even more to teach! Thanks :)

  101. SimBRASILRap Says:

    [..YouTube..] Olá Amigo gostei do seu canal, e já me inscrevi

  102. BP5M Says:

    [..YouTube..] Finally some different type of comedy!! very good job.!

  103. ParaguayMK Says:

    [..YouTube..] I teach in Korea, but this is spot on for over here too. Really well done.

  104. ZetaCron Says:

    [..YouTube..] Soup Opera? Lols! :P XD

  105. MotokenUchia Says:

    [..YouTube..] these are great!

  106. catnews Says:

    I’m enjoying the show but can’t figure out why Episode 3 was called Hail Mary.

  107. fwrsd Says:

    [..YouTube..] Is it just me, or does the narrator’s voice sound like a computer?

  108. elovaloco Says:

    [..YouTube..] i really like this…good work guys…

  109. ki6eki Says:

    [..YouTube..] she’s so hot.

  110. Zeavo87 Says:

    [..YouTube..] this is EXTREMELY well produced (editing, sound, lighting, etc.) And I love the premise (spot on as i am a teacher in korea). But if you want any constructive criticism, the writing is lacking here. The ‘life lessons’ and ‘philosophy tidbits’ the narrator provides feel very forced, and are severely wanting in originality. and the Zen Guru character just seems really unrelated to the rest of the show, just a lazy insertion of comic relief. I will keep watching though.

  111. Zeavo87 Says:

    [..YouTube..] though i must note that the sound has a small issue…that it dips into moments of complete/utter silence when there should be some kind of sound there, the stark silence sounds very unnatural and is very noticable. it is especially obvious in the opening monologue where the girl is making the faces.

  112. TheSunmanho Says:

    [..YouTube..] English people are ugly.

    the only decent person was the Asian.

  113. williamishiwata Says:

    [..YouTube..] Such was my life the first 3 years here. This is too funny, I have worked with all of these people at some time.

  114. TheMOshowtime Says:

    [..YouTube..] the 10 people that hit dislike are probably japanese lol this is a comedy its about the teacher not the students or the country im sure teachers deal with this even in america

  115. solidiquis1 Says:

    [..YouTube..] I love the ninja dude and the grumpy ass british teacher xD

  116. solidiquis1 Says:

    [..YouTube..] @TheSunmanho which one? lolol

  117. TheSunmanho Says:

    [..YouTube..] @solidiquis1

    the lady secretary! or do you think I’m gay????

  118. LoyFeibleman671 Says:

    [..YouTube..] DL the audio from this tune at searchripgrab doht cohm.

  119. IsomehowForgot Says:

    [..YouTube..] Am I the only one who doesn’t like the idea of that main teacher character beeing quite a copy of what JD from Scrubs was ? Walking the hallways with his backpack on him, thinking with a narators voice and telling people the meaning of what’s going on and the lesson you should learn… This series really takes up the idea of a scrubs sitcom…

  120. minazumi Says:

    [..YouTube..] Great series :)

  121. MayorMichaelShell Says:

    [..YouTube..] This series works. How long has it been around? Is it on tv too?

  122. surgerryy Says:

    [..YouTube..] were can i get a copy of the ninja DVD?

  123. boncku Says:

    [..YouTube..] Thanks. A great series! Teachers can learn a lot and change their attitudes, and be useful teachers!! And I feel a new window has opened up before me!!!

  124. ShugglesStuff Says:

    [..YouTube..] love iit lmao
