One of the few Japanese dramas I like
14 February 2004 | by (Detroit, MI) – See all my reviews

First thing I want to point out that this is the not the anime that several people commented on. This is the drama, two completely different works. Both are based on the same manga, but relatively different. GTO (the drama) is excellent. Its one of the few Japanese dramsas that I actually get excited about. While at times it can be a bit cheesy, the actors in the series are so incredibly loveable that the exploits of this troublesome teacher are so touching that it makes this one of the most addicting dramas I've ever seen.
