Eikichi Onizuka and Ryuji Danma are members of infamous biker duo, the Oni Baku. When not out riding around, they can be found in school, trying to pick up young women. This is the story of the young Onizuka, who would later become the greatest teacher in Japan, and his partner Ryuji in their quest to lose their virginity and reach maturity.

They are widely feared bosozoku, and are known for their tenacity and viciousness in a fight. However, this lifestyle does not exactly endear them to the opposite gender, so they decide to change their ways. However, this is easier said than done.

I am a huge fan of the Great Teacher Onizuka manga and anime, so I knew I had to check this show out. Shonan Junai Gumi is actually a prequel to the popular GTO, but not nearly as well known. It is a look into the life of Onizuka and his friend Ryuji back in high school, when they were known as the feared biker duo, Oni-Baku. Filled with action, fighting, and humor, this show is a great way for GTO fans to get a bit more Onizuka, and give those new to the series their first taste of this great character.

The prequel to Great teacher Onizuka a truly amazing series to precead. I watched GTO first and i know many people will do the same since this title is lesser known. Hopefully i can give you a few reasons to pick up this exciting prequel.

When i picked up Shonan Junai Gumi i was not sure what to expect considering the structure of GTO i had wondered if it would follow a similar pattern or would it be totally original in itself. It turned out to follow a similar yet different structure. Following Onizuka on his various journeys riding motorcycles and beaten up punks.

Sex crazed youths trying to find their next ambition. The '90s sure was a single-minded time.
There both short OVA series with stupid and perverted main characters. Though Kintaro is more moral than Onizuka but if its about women there very similar and in every Episode there always have a new adventure with new woman's.
