The Anime is one of the better televised versions of GTO you will ever find
This was my first taste of Great Teacher Onizuka and I admit when I first heard of it well I did have reservations until a friend told me of it. So I went to watch the anime and you know what....I didn't regret it at all.
This is the series that genuinely captures the spirit of the manga and the depictions of the characters are just as good in the Manga because it included all of my favourites and they appear just as they did in the manga unlike the pointless live adaptations to which the first was just dull, boring with too many changes and the second was just a rushed, nonsensical jumble from the Manga.
I really grew to like Onizuka and other characters that were to be introduced because Eikichi is such a great character he can a pervert but he does use help his students, genuinely cares about them and is willing to go out of his way for them. Extreme measures are always a last resort but the guy can get excitable and is capable of admitting his own wrongs.
But the Great Teacher Onizuka Manga does tell a more complete and better story and the anime is excellent despite the fact I found its ending a disappointment.
If you want a GTO TV series stick with the anime and I hope they might decide to remake the GTO Anime that's if they had time for a live one.
