GTO: An Inspiring Tale of Redemption and Unconventional Teaching!

Great Teacher Onizuka is often considered an inspiring tale, especially by those who enjoy manga and anime series. The story follows Eikichi Onizuka, a former gang member and delinquent who becomes a high school teacher. Onizuka’s unorthodox teaching methods and his commitment to helping his students often lead to positive changes in their lives. Many viewers and readers find inspiration in Onizuka’s dedication to his students and his ability to connect with them on a personal level.

GTO is such a great protagonist because, while he is a very flawed individual, his innate goodness still manages to shine through his actions.  The story makes no bones about the fact that Eikichi spent his youth driving motorcycles, beating people up, and generally being a horny little hooligan.  It also makes no pretense about him being any sort of secret genius or having purely noble motivations, considering that he focused more on his karate team than school and hoped that becoming a teacher would help him score with high school girls. 

But enough about GTO—what about Fujisawa’s art? It is kind of nostalgic in a weird way.  While Fujisawa has always had a problem with drawing the same generically pretty women, there’s something wonderful about the variety of faces and body types you find in the crowds here. Nowhere is this more evident than on Onizuka, who can be handsome one moment (even in flashbacks with his Yanki pompadour) and make the strangest gonk face the next moment.  You can see all the love and attention he puts into each one.

However, the series touches on themes like redemption, personal growth, and the impact that a dedicated and caring teacher can have on students who are struggling with various issues. It combines humor, drama, and heartwarming moments, making it an entertaining and inspiring story for many. However, it’s important to note that GTO also contains mature themes and can be quite unconventional at times, so it may not be suitable for all audiences.
