For anime comedy like this, it’s very funny to watch maybe one of these anime. It isn’t wrong if the manga became a best-seller for years and became one of the most hit manga of all time. “Great Teacher Onizuka” or abbreviated as “GTO” is a manga by Tohru Fujisawa in 1996 to 2002 successfully attracted the interest of its readers. Moreover, the anime that aired in 1999 until 2000 first. Although I have never read any of the manga, this anime is a comedic anime that makes me laugh in every episode.
Onizuka is a reformed biker gang leader who has his sights set on an honorable new ambition: to become the world’s greatest teacher… for the purpose of meeting sexy high school girls. Okay, so he’s mostly reformed.
However, strict administrators and a class of ruthless delinquents stand between Onizuka and his goal and they will use any means, however illegal or low, to drive the new teacher away. Perfect, because Onizuka’s methods won’t be found in any teaching manual; he cares about the difference between legal and illegal activities about as much as he cares for the age difference between himself and a high school girl.
So get ready for math that doesn’t add up, language you’d be slapped for using, and biology that would make a grown man blush… unless of course, you’re the Great Teacher Onizuka.
“GTO” does have explicit scenes that sometimes contain elements of violence, adult scenes, but besides that, this anime can be said to be great compared to other manga. This is what makes the audience more love this anime that sometimes we can be made to laugh out loud by this Onizuka and sometimes always get the moral message that is in this anime as well. Indeed for the now rare comedy anime that makes us want to laugh out loud that sometimes also anime it displays a comedy that contains elements of coercion. For this anime, maybe it can be said not.
Discussing the matter of artwork in this anime, it is natural that this anime is a classic anime. For the classic anime of an old-days, this anime can be said to be good for the matter of his artwork. Because of the work by Studio Pierrot, the artwork can be said as anime kind of “Naruto,” “Tokyo Ghoul,” “Bleach,” and others. For the size of the artwork, I would say mediocre.
In addition, the core story of this anime is very simple. Only a teacher wants to see a pair of panties from his own female students. However, if only by listening to the synopsis it will make us think weird to be lazy to watch it because it looks stupid. However, you are mistaken. Besides that, anime is nothing more than funny that there is also a moral message. Onizuka even though he is the one who has thugs and always makes trouble, Onizuka also sometimes has his own principles that make all his students it likes to him. Onizuka also always has a great sacrifice for his students so that his class students initially bully him into liking this Onizuka.
I just don’t know or maybe just my own that will say like this but this anime has cliche that often appears in the episode. Sometimes the background of the character has a past that sometimes turns it into a rare-looking character. Therefore, the audience will think, “Oh, they are not bad people.” And from this point, Onizuka will improve the character of this character by taming their nature. But, this is also what makes this anime so interesting if there is nothing like this.
How this anime also shows that education is also not something worth laughing at. Clearly, this anime show something like that. For nowadays indeed, education is always increasingly chaotic by the time exceeded. One teacher even the education council considers education to be something they consider to be money in the eyes. Therefore, education is only the eye. How to create a relationship between students and teachers is very difficult. For anime like this, this anime explains the appearance of an education that has been rampant in the world of society.
This is anime is perfect to watch with everyone. Because the existing comedy can indeed until the moral message will also be able to. If you guys wanna see this great teacher with comedy that super funny, I recommended this anime because you will make you laugh in each episode.
