Meet Eikichi Onizuka, a 22-year-old ex-biker. He's crude, foul-mouthed, and has a split-second temper. His unlikely goal: to be the Greatest High School Teacher in the World! Of course, the only reason he wants to be a teacher is so he can try to score with the hot students...
Before he can become a full instructor, he's got to work as a student teacher to earn his credentials. Onizuka may think he's the toughest guy on campus, but when he meets his class full of bullies, blackmailers, and scheming sadists, he'll have to prove it.

Won the 22nd Kodansha Manga Award for Best Shounen Manga.

I really enjoyed this series. The plot was original and down to earth, although it got somewhat outrageous at the end. The events are common and easy for me to relate to, so I got into the manga.

However, it started going downhill near the end when they started having unbelievable events happen. If the manga had continued, my enjoyment of it would have dropped considerably.

Overall, the manga was very enjoyable, but I think the anime actually did a better job. It captured the idea of "dedication and trust in teaching" but removed the outrageous events so that the tone was more consistent.

alot of LOL moments, one of my favorite mangas. my friend's mom walked in on us reading this once. somehow we were so lucky that when she was flipping through the pages she only saw up to the fight scenes. if she had flipped one more page she would've seen a scene of old men being bondaged by middle-school girls... yes dont let this manga lie around if you still have parents-nose-poking problems.

later story lines feel like a bit of reruns. bad students -> worse students -> worser student -> worserer student -> worsererer student etc....

a minor thing thing that i really liked about it was that some pages are absolutely FILLED with texts, where every dialogue has a sub dialogue. and background texts such as signs, titles, newspapers are hilarious to read. also some of the "sound effects" in the fight boxes are hilariously (mis)-used.

The first time I saw this manga I thought it was going to be lame so I just looked around it. Now, 2 years later I finally read it and it's great sometimes the story kind of drags on but other then that its pretty good.

Been years since I saw the anime, except some single eps so thougth it was time to refresh my memory.

Prolly one of the best mangas (& anime) out theire. Especially when you're searching for a comedy. The only thing that annoyed me is that the mangaka is to soft on his villains.

He should have put some suckers in jail. Onizuka is a saint even when he has oni in his name.

I've just finished reading it for the second time... this manga is just too good, I really love the plot, main character is completely awesome and the art which is fairly detailed matches very well this manga's style.

This is most likely my #1 manga. I'm a sucker for ecchi, comedies and this delivers it with a powered hero-punch in the face. The story doesn't drag on nowhere and the art is great (this wouldn't have worked with any other style!). If you're not rooting for Oni by the end of this series maybe you should check your brain.

I give it a 10, not because its perfect in every aspect, but because if you're looking for something with ecchi, comedy, and action with a great fallback story you won't find better then GTO.

GTO-a must read

So much has been said before me about GTO (relate only to the positive).
so I won't bother you with more stuff to read^^
Amazing and funny to tears.

For those who were b**ching about the art style : I'm a very big cretic of manga art, and can't stand bad art, In GTO I find the art really good, realistic, that adds to the plot with all the posibile expretions and so on..
So If you are a big-eye-shoujo lover, I can't help you. (although even big-eye-shoujo lovers must read this amazing piece of art.).

GTO- RuleZ

*sigh* Another one of the people who bring down mangas with good storylines just because of the art. Yea I think everyone's superficial in some way, but to ridicule something based on it's art is just sad. I can say this to the people who hated Hana Yori Dango, and look at what a phenomenon it is.

I think the art's interesting-looking. I'm not someone who will scowl at something that doesn't look like [insert manga with crazilly-embellished artwork] or something. *rollseyes* You really are missing out.

Yea Im saying wut the if I can finish this... man this manga is toooooooooooooo awesome! Each an every time it gets me goin from each plot to plot its interesting it makes me boil sumtimes(srry). Even towards the end I didnt want it 2 end becuz Onizuka is the best teacher out there. I would pay a billiob bucks 2 have a teach like him. It would help society so much in a positive and fun way I swear... Besides the plot, Onizuka is the man!!!(How many times do I ahve 2 stress this?) He does the impossible wut can i say? His pervertedness and reactions(when he gets pissed more specifically) towards things make this manga also a fun one as well. I am glad 2 have read this manga it makes me sad that it freakin ended...seriously... The best school life/shounen/comedy I have ever read so far...
