GTO Vol. 1

» written by Wai Yung (Wayne) Chim [Discuss]

Synopsis
Meet Eikichi Onizuka, a 22-year-old virgin and ex-biker. He’s crude, foul-mouthed, and has a hair-trigger temper. His goal: to be the greatest high school teacher in the world. Unfortunately, the only teaching job available is at Holy Forest Academy (no certification requiered) There he uses his street smarts to deal with colleagues and students alike. GTO is the runaway hit from Japan based on the hugely popluar manga series by Tohru Fujisawa. The finale of the live action version of GTO was the most watched TV program ever in Japan.

Review
When I first heard about GTO, I thought it was something to do with cars, simply because of the Mitsubishi GTO and such. Turns out that GTO is about a man who was in a biker gang and later on left it to fulfill his dream to become a high school teacher. Of course this task isn’t going to be easy with the troublesome kids that play pranks on their teachers.

Overall, this is a pretty enjoyable series. I liked the values it taught. Onizuka has made an impact on his students, students who hated him at first, later on liked him as a teacher because of the things he did to get them out of trouble or the things he did to stop bad students continue doing their bad things (Getting his biker gang to teach those kids a lesson ^_^). I’d recommend the Japanese Drama series more than the anime series though. I just think, the Jdrama and the anime series both are similar in ways but the Jdrama is live which was, obviously, more realistic.

The Breakdown
GTO, Get iT Otherwise you’re missing out on an excellent dose of Anime. TokyoPOP has licensed GTO and it is currently available in both Manga and Animation.

 

» The Pros
GTO has everything a fan wants, action, comedy, drama and characters that attracts its audience.

» The Cons
Each volume of GTO takes a while to hit the streets.

» Animation
9
Normal TV series animation, but the characters had too many lines in some parts. Such as to demonstrate shadows, I don't think people use lines like GTO did anymore.

» Sound
8
Alright I guess, Nothing terrible about it, therefore nothing really to complain about, but just I didn't like some voices.

» Story

I like GTO because of its story, it teaches life values in which happened to me too. GTO kind of guided me through my life. And also for you perverts out there, there is ecchi humor :P.
