The Greatest Anime!
23 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Great Teacher Onizuka is by far one of the best anime I have come across. It has every thing that you would look for in a anime- comedy, action, romance and drama. The opening and closing songs of the anime are one of my favorites.

The anime is about a guy called Onizuka who is portrayed as a 'pervert'. He earns his teaching degree, just barely, at a second-rate college. He is hired as a long-shot teacher by a privately operated school, to tame a class that has driven one teacher to a mysterious death, another to nervous breakdown, and one other to joining a cult. He embarks on a mission of self-discovery by breaking through to each student one-by-one, and helping each student to overcome their problems and learn to genuinely enjoy life, using his own brand of philosophy.

When I came across this anime, I decided to watch it for two reasons 1) It wasn't about some ninjas running on water or humans talking to ghosts 2) It was supposed to be perverted :p Every episode, I laughed and laughed till my stomach hurt and my friends wondered if anything was wrong with me! I realized that the anime was not about perverted jokes but about things beyond that. It was about life.

Onizuka takes us on a journey where we learn the importance of life, the important things that we need to have and the way we need to lead our life, in his perverted yet adventurous style! Its a journey that we must admire, a journey that you'll not regret, a journey of laughter is what GTO is all about.

The Greatest teacher- Eikichi Onizuka(22 years old and virgin) is awaiting to give you life lessons, so take the lessons that you'll never forget!

9.5/10
