The 48th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Tohru Fujisawa is launching his GTO: Shonan 14 Days manga spinoff in the next issue under the title Black Diamond. The new three-chapter story will be a school action story with two characters from GTO: Shonan 14 Days, the twins Riko and Miko Sakaki, and the advertising says that the keywords are "high school girls" and "auction."
GTO: Shonan 14 Days served as the sequel to Fujisawa's original Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) manga series until it ended earlier this year. Fujisawa launched GTO in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 1997, and Kodansha released 25 volumes through 2002. Tokyopop published GTO in North America. In 2009, Fujisawa returned to the character of Onizuka with Shonan 14 Days. Vertical announced in May that it licensed both GTO: Shonan 14 Days and Shonan Junai-gumi (the predecessor to Great Teacher Onizuka) for North America.
