This year's 27th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine will announce on Wednesday that Tohru Fujisawa's Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) manga is returning under the name GTO: Shonan 14 Days. The Shōnan setting is the coastal bay area near Tokyo that is also the locale of Fujisawa's Shonan Junai-gumi (GTO: The Early Years, pictured at right). Tokyopop released the original GTO manga and GTO: The Early Years, both of which recount the misadventures of Ekichi Onizuka, the biker gang member who becomes the "Greatest Teacher in the World."
Update: More background information added.
