This is actually a very good series. It follows the same line as the manga and the live action, though it drags it out a little more.
This is actually a very good series. It follows the same line as the manga and the live action, though it drags it out a little more. Good if you want more GTO, bad if you're not so interested in all that filler.
The live action version was the most popular TV event in Japan's history, and remains so to this day. The drama it invokes when you think of this normal guy, whose life wasn't easy, who didn't become a teacher (mostly) to hit on girls in fukus, taking on these kids, and making them see that he, even if nobody else agrees, does not think they are trash.
He doesn't always assume that the adult is always on the right side of the argument, and he doesn't assume that these kids are automatically going to do wrong by him. However, he doesn't take their crap, and will not hesitate to call out his gang or dangle you over a roof to get his point across. Its a brilliantly done series, and one I VERY highly recommend.
