Review: GTO


Plot Summary: Onizuka is an ex-biker and gang leader who has one goal, to become the greatest teacher. He learns of the power and respect possible as an intern teacher, using his strength and connections to get his students to respect him. Now, graduated, he gets a job at a prestigious private school to handle their ‘problem class’ that made the past few teachers quit. He must handle a different sort of trouble when the trouble makers include some of the smartest kids in Japan who preffer a more cerebral approach to torturing their teacher. Onizuka must slowly win his students over and deal with their mistrust of teachers while handling the distrust of his fellow teachers.

This is one amazing anime that I couldn’t get enough of. Onizuka is an ex-gang leader, karate champ, 22 year old who wants to be the greatest teacher alive. He is also obsessed with high school girls, perverted, vulgar, and loves video games. He has to deal with the worst class en school and turn them around, and he uses un-orthodox tactics which are borderline insane. You get involved with all the characters, and get attached to different people. The animation is fantastic, and all you could do is laugh and get hooked on Onizuka. By the time animation is over you don’t want it to end. I recommend anyone who loves animation to watch this animation because its a classic that shouldn’t be missed. This is one of the few animes where they did a really good job with the dubbing. The voices really fit the characters.
