Average Rating

Onizuka is a reformed biker gang leader who has his sights set on an honorable new ambition: to become the world's greatest teacher... for the purpose of meeting sexy high school girls. Okay, so he's mostly reformed. However, strict administrators and a class of ruthless delinquents stand between Onizuka and his goal and they will use any means, however illegal or low, to drive the new teacher away. Perfect, because Onizuka's methods won't be found in any teaching manual; he cares about the difference between legal and illegal activities about as much as he cares for the age difference between himself and a high school girl. So get ready for math that doesn't add up, language you'd be slapped for using, and biology that would make a grown man blush... unless of course, you're the Great Teacher Onizuka.

“Give a kid a smoke and he’ll be happy for a day. Teach him how to smoke… he’ll be happy for his whole shortened life.”- Eikichi Onizuka


Just because you’re a 22-year old virgin with no college degree doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to be the greatest teacher in the world.


I wish I had a teach like Onizuka. Great classic.


Although each plotline seems to adhere to the same general formula, the hilarity and adventures that ensues are what keeps you coming back.


you should be (re)watching GTO instead of reading this pointless reaction.
Got me rethinking some important life decisions.


A classic comedy a must watch for anyone who likes a good story mixed with a fair amount of perverted humour.


Even with no degree in education, a street gangster, legend Onizuka becomes one of the greatest teachers alive!!



    can i kwill u plis 🥺🥺
