Set in 1955, the anime follows the story of seven teenagers locked in a reformatory, waiting for a ray of light in a daily hell of suffering and humiliation, focusing especially on how they faced the life once regained freedom.
Great Teacher Onizuka (aka GTO) was a manga by Toru Fujisawa. In 1998 it spawned a twelve-episode TV drama followed by a TV Special. The year 1999 comes around with an anime series of the same name. Along with that, GTO the movie is released. The movie continues where the TV drama special left off.
Onizuka (played by Takashi Sorimachi) ends up at the rural town of Horobonai in Hokkaido, Japan. He is a substitute teacher, there to set things straight at a school where nobody cares. Sound familiar? If you've seen the series, then it should. It's a new story though, and a great one.
GTO fans should be satisfied with this movie. You get to see Onizuka's crazy ways of handling things once again. If you are unfamiliar with GTO, go watch the anime or TV drama. It's much more entertaining that way. As a stand alone movie, it's pretty good. But as a GTO movie, it's great!
