GTO Paradise Lost Manga Goes on Hiatus Until Winter
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 28th issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine is announcing on Monday that Tohru Fujisawa is putting his GTO Paradise Lost manga on hiatus, starting in the next issue. He plans to resume the manga this winter. Kodansha will publish the third compiled volume in August.
Fujisawa launched this spinoff of his GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) manga in Kodansha's Young Magazine on April 14, 2014. Crunchyroll has been offering the manga online, including latest chapters as they come out in Japan. Crunchyroll describes the story:
The next stage for Eikichi Onizuka: Kissho Academy's Class G, a newly-established class for young celebrities. But as Onizuka soon finds out, his new teaching assignment is no superstar paradise—it's a super problem class, feared by all!
Tokyopop and Vertical published the various GTO manga titles in North America, including GTO: The Early Years. The original manga inspired a television anime, as well as several live-action adaptations.
Fujisawa launched the manga Oishii Kamishama in Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday magazine in September. He ended his Kamen Teacher Black (the sequel to his four-volume Kamen Teacher manga series) in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine in October.
