Unlike other High School Anime.
11 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

GTO is short for Great Teacher Onisuka. Onisuka is an ex biker who has a long list of police records on himself. He's determine to become a great teacher.

the only reason why is so he can check out all the High School Girls. He's a pervert who like looking up girls skirts when they least expected and likes pornography.

But as he does his job as a teacher, he finds that helping students is a good thing to do as a teacher. He makes the impossible, possible and he doesn't do stuff you'd find in a regular teacher. Onizuku knows he'll become well known as the best teacher of Japan.

It's a cool series. I recommend it to those who want more mature Anime or for Student Teachers who want to find a series they can get advice from.

I also recommend reading the manga series too. Because it's like seeing an extended version of GTO with plot holes not included or changed in the anime.

It's rated 16 and up for Language, Brief Nudity, Drugs, some violence, and mild humor.
