This season’s coveted Monday night, 9 p.m., Fuji TV drama slot is filled by “Taisetsu-na Koto wa Subete Kimi ga Oshiete Kureta” (“You Taught Me All the Important Things”), which stars Erika Toda as a high school English teacher.

Natsumi (Toda), who lived in the United States until the end of junior high school, always dreamed of teaching. Popular because of her cheerful, positive attitude, she’s also the coach of the girls’ basketball club. Her boyfriend, Shuji (Haruma Miura), is just the opposite: serious and thoughtful. They’ve known each other since high school and plan to marry in three months’ time.
