GTO Spinoff Manga GT-R Wraps in October

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Series focusing on Onizuka's close friend Ryūji Danma premiered in June

The 44th issue of Weekly Shōnen Magazine will publish the last chapter of Tohru Fujisawa's GTO spinoff manga, GT-R (Great Transporter Ryuji), on October 3. The manga will not run in the 43rd issue this week so Fujisawa can make preparations.

GT-R premiered in June, and it focuses on Onizuka's close friend and drinking buddy Ryūji Danma from the earlier GTO: The Early Years (Shōnan Junai-gumi) series. Kodansha will compile and publish GT-R in a single book volume on November 16.

Fujisawa also recently launched Itoshi no Dutchoven Girl (My Dear Dutch Oven Girl) in Futabasha's Manga Action magazine, and Ino-Head Gargoyle in Kodansha's Young Magazine. He ended his collaborative series with Ryō Aoki and Akitsugu Mizumoto, Shibuya Hachikō-Mae -another side-, in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Comic Japan digital manga magazine last month.

Tokyopop published Fujisawa's GTO and GTO: The Early Years in North America. In 2009, Fujisawa returned to the character of Onizuka with Shonan 14 DAYS, and Vertical is publishing both GTO: Shonan 14 Days and the later volumes of GTO: The Early Years in North America. Fujisawa just finished Shonan 14 DAYS last year, but he launched a three-chapter spinoff in November.
