Tough on the outside, all heart on the inside, Onizuka turned to the life of a high school teacher for less excitement and action - or so he thought. GTO, a.k.a: Great Teacher Onizuka, is the racey story of Onizuka, a former motorcycle gang member who becomes a teacher to make a difference and... to meet girls? Using his street smarts to deal with colleagues, students and troublemakers, Onizuka finds that he too has many lessons to learn!
Contains Four Episodes:
Lesson 1: The Legend Begins
Finally getting into the classroom, Onizuka has been assigned a class of juvenile delinquents! Lucky for him his students are hot - especially the beautiful, young Nanako Mizuki. When she tricks him into inviting her to his place, he finds out exactly why she's in that class!
Lesson 2: Enter Uchiyamada
A real job? Could be when Onizuka decides to interview for a teaching position at the prestigious Holy Forest School. Too bad for Onizuka that on the day of the interview, he manages to come to the rescue of a cute young girl being molested by the Holy Forest's own vice principal Hiroshi Uchiyamada!
Lesson 3: Late Night Roof Diving
Finally a real job! As a new term begins at Holy Forest, Onizuka begins his lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. Unfortunately, he's also been assigned to the one class that trashes teachers on a regular basis. They say they leave from mental stress and Onizuka is about why. Is he so sure he really wants to teach?
Lesson 4: The Secret Life of Onizuka
