SynopsisOnizuka is a reformed biker gang leader who has his sights set on an honorable new ambition: to become the world's greatest teacher... for the purpose of meeting sexy high school girls. Okay, so he's mostly reformed.
However, strict administrators and a class of ruthless delinquents stand between Onizuka and his goal and they will use any means, however illegal or low, to drive the new teacher away. Perfect, because Onizuka's methods won't be found in any teaching manual; he cares about the difference between legal and illegal activities about as much as he cares for the age difference between himself and a high school girl.
So get ready for math that doesn't add up, language you'd be slapped for using, and biology that would make a grown man blush... unless of course, you're the Great Teacher Onizuka.

This by far was my favourite thing that I ever watched, Geat teacher Onizuka was the best thing I have seen in ages, in the beginning I said to myself this is too old to watch...GUESS WHAT, I have noticed that many of the old anime's are well written and have better Ideas and more rich context than most of the new ones.
Most the ones I watch nowadays are filled with the same cliches that are known in the anime world, for example; Strange overpowered character that doesn't talk to people, strange overpowered girl that doesn't talk to people, girls looking exactly the same but with different hair color, read more
A funky name, you maybe thinking, huh? You may haven’t heard this name or you may think it isn't that popular. But underneath all these, it originally is very good anime series. If you like Comedy and Slice Of Life-type anime, then go for it.
GTO, however, doesn’t aim to be just a good comedy, instead all other ‘spices’ are added in it. Along with the enjoyment, you may consider Onizuka (Protagonist) as a very influential character. The storyline is pretty decent but the only issue is that its short (43 episodes are just too less for GTO!). For the info, GTO manga won the 1998 Kodansha Manga Award for Shounen.
The story focuses on Eikichi Onizuka, 22 years old Ex-bike gang member and a virgin, who wants be the greatest teacher in Japan. He is given to tame a class that has driven several other teachers to death and nervous breakdowns. But Onizuka uses his own methods (which are mainly against the law) to teach students how to enjoy life and solve their problems one by one (with the help of his own life experiences).
Onizuka is one of the most coolest characters I have ever seen. I have realized that this anime isn’t just only about jokes but it is much far and far beyond that. This series also tells ‘how’ to live your life and also explains the special bond between a teacher and a student and is very enjoyable. The series may be old but it has not lost touch and still holds a special place in the hearts of many otakus. The pacing of the anime is almost perfect, which is what makes it watchable.
The only thing it lacks is its stability in changing the situations, the situations change in just few episodes and it is old too (which is one of the reason for its low popularity… but old is gold, right?). On the whole, the series is gorgeous. Be ready to take the adventurous life lessons from the greatest teacher in Japan!
Verdict: GTO – (G)orgeous (T)reat of an (O)utclass anime.
For: Enjoyable, Humorous, Adorable Characters.
Great Teacher Onizuka had some potential, but all of the humor is repetitive and juvenile, while unrealistic dramatic scenes dominate the plot more and more as the series drags on. It basically fails on both fronts. Plot points and devices are reused to the point where they become dull, and they get increasingly ridiculous as the series progresses. Not in a good way, of course. Holy melodrama, batman! This anime is chock full of bullshit backstories that are supposed to make us go “awwwwww, they’re not a bad guy/girl after all!” by the way. Yeah, it’s definitely as irritating and ineffective as it sounds.
Character development is unfortunately absent from the personality of our bland douche of a protagonist, and he is pretty much the same annoying dumbass for the whole duration of the plot. His way of solving issues with students is completely unrealistic, and while this is sometimes acknowledged and played for laughs, it takes itself seriously far too often. He’s pretty much just there for wish-fulfillment, plain and simple. As for his students, all developments in them come off as completely forced and contrived. Plus, almost all of them are blatant archetypes, who have some deep-seated reason to “bawww nvr trust a teacher again!” to boot. Why should we care about anything bad that threatens to happen when we already know that the Mary Sue genius cool handsome hacker boy can fix all problems that come up easily? Another telling issue with the characterization is that just about all men above the age of twenty are, for whatever reason, portrayed as disgusting perverts. This may be a reflection on Fujisawa himself, given the large amount of poorly-placed fanservice. All antagonists in this series start off completely one-dimensional and unrealistically evil, but they then get some sob-story tacked onto their character and their personality changes completely. That is simply not proper character development.
The art is easily the weakest aspect. Almost everybody has the same exact face; you know, that one face that Fujisawa Tohru recycles endlessly in everything he does. The only face he knows how to draw, basically. Great Teacher Onizuka largely depends on visual humor for its value as a comedy, but all of the "hilarious" facial expressions were used over and over again, when they were never really funny in the first place. At the same time, they contribute heavily to my inability to take Great Teacher Onizuka seriously. The rest of the visual humor is just somewhat lame and, man, I hope you like seeing Onizuka’s ass, because you’re going to be getting a lot of that. The animation is nothing special, and any flaws with it are completely overshadowed by the horrendous art.
All of the claims made by Great Teacher Onizuka’s rabid defenders about its “societal commentary” are completely untrue. Bullying is not dealt with much better, more interestingly, or realistically than in many other works I have seen. Furthermore, I failed to see what it actually criticized about the education system, other than the fact that not enough teachers are violent gangsters. This theme continues with just about everything else it supposedly comments on. It either just features these things in a cliché manner or does not really say much about them at all. There is no depth to Great Teacher Onizuka; it is just a simple drama and comedy. This would be fine did it do either of those things right, but, alas, it did not.
I have no idea as to why this anime is so highly regarded. It is just not very good, plain and simple. I get second-hand embarrassment when watching all of those sentimental scenes about teaching, and then I have to wonder why Great Teacher Onizuka didn’t just stick to comedy. Then I remember that it wasn’t funny and I think to myself “ah, that explains it.” GTO started out as a decent parody of all of those stupid shows with a super-teacher who helps his students work out all of their problems and wins their hearts in the process, but it eventually fell victim to self-indulgence and became a stupid story in the same vein. It contributed nothing new nor anything of real value to the genres of school life, comedy, or drama. It never made me laugh out loud, and it never evoked any kind of physical or emotional response. Not in a good way, at least. At its best, it’s okay. At its worst, it’s goddamn painful.
If you haven't heard of this show you should stop whatever you're doing and give the first episode a sampling. GTO is an amazing classic that combines a likable, self-proclaimed pervert with an amazing character-based story showing the growth of the world's naughtiest group of students. His struggles and the lessons he teaches his students go beyond that one would normally expect from a teacher, and that is what makes this series good. What surprises me most about this show is that despite the male-oriented ecchi aspects, many girls also hold this show in high regard.
It struck me at first how dated the animation looks but one gets used to after awhile. Expect saturated colors and gritty, thick strokes throughout. Detail is only fair in general and effects are rather lacking compared to today's high-production works. The characters are also drawn differently than what I'm used to, especially Onizuka when he does his crazy monkey-like face.
This show has plenty of action, fittingly for a seemingly indestructible veteran of a biker gang. Expect a fair amount of fighting from this black belt, along with unrealistic proportions of blood gushing out. The show also has plenty of ecchi, very few shows are willing to start with an upskirt in the very first frame, but this gutsy first frame set the tone for the rest of the show in style.
The OP/EDs were fair but didn't catch my attention. The BGM was fair most of the time but definitely grows on you through this fairly long work. As for voice acting, there are some notables in the cast including veteran Kotono Mitsuishi and Ayako Kawasumi (Saber anyone?). All the cast did a very good job (especially the vice principal).
The majority of the series follows Onizuka as he gains the trust of his class, which had previously been psychologically wounded by a former teacher. At first, everyone doesn't trust him and does everything in their power to get rid of him. However, his bike-gang experience and pure guts show that he will do anything to win over his students' trust. Be it family problems or relationships, his teachings go well beyond the textbook.
The show follows Onizuka through his "trials" as students successively attempt plots to either embarrass Onizuka or get him fired. This is a perspective that I have yet to see another show pull off successfully. Expect a very enjoyable amount of tension as well as an equal amount of humorous situations. The show builds to a huge final climax that is resolved in a very fitting manner. Overall, the show gives off a very warm and positive feeling, as if telling us to still have faith in humanity.
There are a lot of characters in GTO with very different personalities, and each one has some story to tell and some conflict to have resolved. Thus expect a lot of character development as Onizuka does his magic. I really liked how they were able to explicate so many characters without the viewer getting lost in it all. The only thing that isn't believable is Onizuka himself and his superman-like ability to survive seemingly any injury, be it jumping off a building or being hit in the head with a bat.
What is also particularly well done is the sense of group. There are many cliques within the class and the show masterfully mixes individual development with that of the group. In addition, there are also romantic developments between certain characters as well- this was particularly enjoyable for me.
Despite being quite long, I've re-watched this show multiple times and it's still great. It's a touching story with bits of hilarity and true to life ideas mixed in. This is storytelling and character development at its best. If you can live with the ecchi and naughty camera angles, this is definitely one show you shouldn't miss. read more
GTO and Golden Boy are extremely similar in style and humor - both feature honest and hardworking leads who will go to great lengths to make a difference in another person's life. And both are prone to trouble, especially when women are involved.
The two shows have their differences though - they're similar enough that I'm absolutely sure anyone who enjoys one should watch the other, but not so similar that either feels like a ripoff.
Very similiar main lead, art style and humor.
Golden Boy and GTO have similar humor and style. When I watched GTO I kept thinking about how it reminded me of Golden Boy. Both of these animes deal with comical perverted guys who you just can't help but love.
The same humor and style. Main characters: Eikichi and Kintaro are very similar.
There both funny as hell!!!
Onizuka Eikichi from GTO and Oe Kintaro from Golden Boy are very similar characters. That goes for their personalities and even applies to things such as the facial expressions they make. They are both perverted guys who act goofy most of the time but when it comes down to it, they always deliver and save the day.
The art and animation style for the these series are also very similar and the same goes for the style of the voice actors.
Story-wise, Golden Boy is very episodic. Each episode is about a completely different scenario while in GTO the story is ongoing from beginning to end. Of course this makes sense seeing as how Golden Boy is a 6 episode OVA while GTO is a 43 episode series.
Overall, it is impossible to watch both titles and not see the similarities as they apply to the characters, the art and animation, and the style of humor.
Consider both titles under the category of "must watch".
Golden Boy and Great Teacher Onizuka has a similar style and humour and the main guys is just so similar in every way and yeah they make the same facial expressions lol...
Both have very funny main characters as well as multiple problems with no real goal almost being episodic ,both are perverts and have similar art style.
Both of the protagonists are very similar, and both have their own ways of solving problems that they have. Golden Boy is very cerebral and plays dumb under the mask of a pervert, while actually solving problems and 'studying'. Onizuka uses a certain amount of wit, but also relies on his past experience as a biker and gang leader to gain respect from his students, who rebel against him. Both have great comedy moments, but also touch on serious topics, although more so in GTO.
Both Golden Boy and Great Teacher Onizuka have the same kind of warm animation style and they both feature humorous male leads who frequently have all sorts of escapades involving women. If you liked Golden Boy's sort of humour, you will find more of it from GTO.
Additionally, if you liked Golden Boy but wish to see something with a more solid plot, this is a good candidate.
Both of the series involve a pervy protagonist who happens to get himself in loads of trouble but always gets away learning something or teaching something to someone else. Both protagonist make the most ridiculous faces that add to the charm of the series. If you like the brand of humor that Onizuka has, then golden boy is a great companion to the type of humor. Both are very inspiring and have a great spirit that make them a great watch. Sadly the series is a bit short but very worthy of a try.
Slice of life, ~18-25 age group of main characters, male lead characters, mature themes, both have a lot of comedy, and voluptuous females.
Extremely similar characters.
If you like one then you will like the other.
It's not like the series are similar in plot, but the sense of humour is analogous. Since Golden Boy is only an OVA, you won't waste much time if you happen to don't like it at all. While Onizuka Eikichi is actually a dumb ass (which is fine with me), Kintaro Oe is rather an intriguing character and one doesn't exactly know which on he is - a smart genius or a dumb ass as well. If you liked GTO, you might try to watch Golden Boy.
GTO and Golden Boy both are similar in humor. Both have an honest, hardworking main character who will go to great lengths to make a difference in another person's life. Mostly women.
GTO and Golden Boy are both my favorite anime ^o^ there are both funny and have sweet story line ^_^
if you finished golden boy and wanted more, GTO is what your looking for
Golden Boy is some of the most baller S**t i have ever seen, but it is incredibly short. I feel as if GTO captured Golden Boys message, but is a lot deeper and longer.
Both are some of the funniest anime you will ever find. I just couldn't stop laughing. When your done you'll feel sad because its all over.
Well, these two series definitely shares some similarities. For instance, the main male protagonist is portrayed as a perverted guy. However at the same time, they are honest and truly wishes to help the people they meet.
Both series' main male protagonist also gets into various situations with women. Initially their outlook on the mc is disgust but later on seems to view him in a different light.
There's a lot of catchy dialogues in both series that is humorous. The old school style artwork also gives similiar vibes. There is also some fan service in both series.
Both main characters are perverts go horny over any girls with ba-donk-a-donks
There both Aspiring..
In GTO the main character Onizuka wants to be the greatest teacher while in Golden boy the main character likes to study study study study by going around japan learning new things, meeting new people, and taking alot of part time jobs
Both shows are great
Both have a funny humor to them, i would recommend these to everyone who wants a good laugh. Cheers.
Great Teacher Onizuka and Golden Boy are a like since they both have the same type of perverted humor. Both mains are extreme trouble makers and perverts.
Both are 90's anime about hardworking pervert who somehow finds a way to save the day, but somehow never gets laid.
The situations that the main characters go through may differ, but the way they act throughout the episodes and they way they solve other people's problems are nearly identical.
"Learn, learn, learn!" is the motto of Kintaro Oe, a law school drop-out who goes on a quest to travel across Japan on his bike, to gain knowledge. Both shows largely focus on the comedic, weird experiences and life lessons derived from them.
just ridiculous pervy episodic comedy to make you feel warm inside
It has the same atmosphere and similar characters, except in GTO the protagonist is a teacher, and in golden boy it's a super fast learner. Same genre, same art style, both main characters are cool and funny at the same time in their own way, which is good. I personally prefered golden boy as an anime, shame it's only 6 episodes, although you can always read the manga of which there is a lot of. Golden boy used the "arc an episode" format so it's better suited as a -relaxing, switch off brain and be happy- anime because you don't need to follow a particularly long plot. GTO does the same thing occasionally too though, just not the whole time. I highly recommend both.
Both are comedy about a perverted guy and his escapades. Both have old style animation. Difference is that one MC is a teacher while the other one is just travelling around the world.
Similar art and comedy.Both will make you laugh a lot A LOT
well both are very similar in allot of ways
* both are strong and willing to take a beating to help some out
* both have perverted minds
* both should be never underestimated
* both are good good hearted
* they both teach people that there better than what they think
* both have funny ass face's
* both are from the mid to late 90
* golden boy is a little bit more ecchi
* GTO Story is set in one place most of the time
* Golden boy almost has a harem
* GTO wish he had harem lol
* GTO rides a Motorcycle
* Golden Boy ride's a Mountain Bike
Onizuka and kintaro are protagonist fom the two series, the two share quite the similarities with both being a total perverted maniac who looks like idiot from the eyes of others. But as the story progresses others begins to doubt their despise and sees them as a kind of heroes.
GTO and Golden Boy will make you pause the video from laughing for fear that you’ll miss the next joke
Both shows are comedies that feature an expressive, perverted, happy-go-lucky man in his twenties as the protagonist. These characters then spend the course of their respective shows trying to help solve problems held by the people around them while simultaneously solving a few of their own. Also, both shows feature older, celluloid animation.
The thing I love about GTO and Golden Boy, is that both main characters are hilarious and get themselves into some of the most humorous, and awkwardest situations that make GTO and Golden Boy so much fun to watch.
I noticed that both Onizuka and Ooe, Kintarou go to great lengths for other people, even if they're risking their lives doing so.
Golden Boy is very similar to GTO and I highly recommend you watch it, despite Golden Boy only having 6 episodes.
Both of these shows follow the same formula, featuring a rough-around-the-edges new teacher reaching out to problem students who eat normal teachers for breakfast. GTO is the funnier of the two by a long shot, but they're both quite good.
Both of these anime portray a teacher in a leading role, with GTO having a male lead while Gokusen having a female lead. Both are focused on how the teacher solves the problems that the students may have, though the problems you see in Gokusen may be a little more "tame", i.e. a tad bit less serious and realistic, than the ones dealt with in GTO.
Ooo...k.. Do NOT expect it to be GTO! It's a comedy with an interesting story. The ideea is basicaly the same: a teacher with a controvertial story in their lives (Onizuka ex-biker, Gokusen relations with yakuza). This is considered the female version of GTO. It's a MUST if you saw GTO but it's not GTO by a long shot.
Almost the same art. Both main characters were gang members and want to be a teacher.
Both are stories about a teacher who is really bad ass who becomes a teacher for a JD class. GTO is much more perverted then Gokusen, and the main character is a guy (obviously). Gokusen's main character is a girl.
Teachers, gangsters, life. Makes for a great anime.
Both animes feature a gangster backed wanna be teacher,who actually succeeds to overcome the disorganized students and teach them some respect. Where GTO has male, Gokusen goes with a female teacher.
Teachers who are members of a gang that wanted to change their life for good, they help those stubborn teenager students who are going to the wrong path & lead them to the right path.
Both series have the troubled class and unorthodox teacher theme.
Gokusen is basically like a poor man's GTO, but both were enjoyable.
Main character is a former gang member who wants to be a teacher and has to deal with difficult students.
Besides everything previously said, in both TVs vice president of the school dislikes the protagonist and tries to harm him/her. And the flow of the storyline is pretty similar.
Epic Teachers using unconventional methods to teach their students.
Similar genre. Difference one GTO - male teacher, while Gokusen - female, also GTO have more series, but both are really fun to watch.
-Former gangsters who want to teach.
-Badass MCs overall.
-Students try to jump off a school roof.
Difference: Gokusen is mostly a comedy. While GTO is showing the consequences with students and dealing with it, but epicly. Gokusen kind of has those moments too, but it's mostly a comedy, thus not having some of the emotional moments in GTO.
Despite there being many differences in the setting, you will find that as you watch GTO there's many parallels to Assassination Classroom. For example Onizuka-sensei while not being a Mach-20 octopus like Korosensei, is very OP in his own right. Also, both of them take a sometimes unconventional approach to teaching, like to fool around but have a tendency to impart the occasional piece of wisdom to help their students. Don't be dissuaded by the fact that GTO was from the 90s because there are some things that don't get worse with age!
Basically the same plot. Both have unique teachers teaching a class of trouble kids and going to any extreme to help them.
I've always been looking for a similiar anime to GTO, and I think many others do. GTO was just amazing and I didn't want it to end.
And since I found a similiar anime on par with GTO I thought to share it with the other members here :D
They're both about special teachers who care about their studends and help them grow.
Even though one is a delinquent and the other is some kind of lab-created monster.
As the series goes on they will help their students with daily life issues, go on field trips and many other stuff.
U should watch it!
What happens when you mix a situation comedy, a schoolyard travesty, and a straight jab of hard-hitting commentary on modern youth and the issues facing the Japanese educational system together in one anime series, and shake strenuously? You get these two series. The teachers share some qualities and morals that they pass on to the students in a untraditional way that works well. They will go to any length to help and guide their students with whatever trial or obstacle may stand in their way. While there is a certain moral message to the anime, watch it for the sheer fun value.
- Both are based in a school setting (like most shounen)
-Both are about a teacher trying his hardest to get a class full of misfits to became more socially acceptable in the eyes of others.
- Both feel very episodic
- Both feature a Main Character that seems like someone that differently does not belong as a school teacher, (in GTO he is a biking Gangsta, in Assassination Classroom the main character is a tentacle monster trying to destroy the world).
- Both feature the class trying to get rid of the teacher by any means necessary (for example in G.T.O. Onizuka is always being plotted against by his fellow students, while in Assassination Classroom they are trying to get rid of Koro sensai by killing him).
- Both are very fun shounen series that seem to be very humor and entertainment based.
Both shows have a strange teacher as main character (In AssClass it's an ultra powerful octopus-llike monster, in GTO it's the former leader of a biker gang) who teaches his students important lessons about life. Also, both are very hilarious but also both are quit drama.
Unlikely teachers who try to solve the problems of a troubled class through their own weird but fun methods.
I was so waiting until I could normally add this recommendation. So yeah.
An untraditional and perverted teacher, working with kids who are in their 3rd year in middle school. And those kids try to remove the teacher. In GTO, we have a bunch of kids who think they're so cool they don't need a teacher and in AssClass we have a tentacle monster who wants to destroy the world in one year and the kids were asked to kill the monster with huge bounty. And what makes the children's goal difficult? The teacher seems to be the best teacher in the world...
Apart from the main characters being completely random, both series having re-occurring characters and a similar style of humor, there are not too many similarities. However, if you like either of these series, your almost guaranteed to love the other! Both start out fairly slow, so watch at least the first 5 episodes and you WILL be hooked.
If you liked Onizuka Eikichi from GTO as a main character, then you're definitely going to like Sakata Gintoki from Gintama. Everything they do from riding 2-wheeled transportation devices(I hesitate to call Gin-san's old scooter a bike) to nose-picking to ass-whopping make me think that they must be brothers from different universes. And if you liked GTO's awesome mix of comedy, action, life lessons, occasional ecchi, and problem-solving, then you should give Gintama a shot, because it is all that with a heavy dose of parody thrown in just for kicks.
compared to the anoying self centered gintama show with its uncharming sense of humour on thirds expenses GTO would be a clear improvement and many finely created laughs without any bad after taste.
Gintama may seem completely random at times only for comedy but when it gets serious its obvious these shows are alike.The similarity of the two lies mostly in the characters and their interactions.
They both have a poor excuse of a "adult" as the main character that just happen to be skilled fighters. As stupid as they seem their main point is the impact on other characters with cliche yet encouraging words of wisdom . And that is what makes them so liked by both characters in the show and in reality.
If you like one you will definitely like the other :3
Light-headed/carefree main characters, great humor and both animes giving you the chance to review/edit your opinion about life and stuff to do with it.
Both main characters:
*Act like scum.
*Can do awkward things without shame
*Overpower pretty much all fights
*have perverted scum fantasies
*really really caring of their friends
*everyone is drawn to them mystically
*dead fish eyes
*make stupid ugly hilariously drawn faces
*wear other anime costumes
*prioritizes doing the moral thing over importance
*both animes don't do cliched things to drag the story
*makes you tear up when people discover the heroic things they did
*great episodic arc stories
*gets mad easily
Whoops, I kept going on. Well you understand how much I love both of these.
Although these two anime is not similar in plot, the funny moments will remind you again again of each other. If you liked one of them then you are surely to like the other.
In both anime, the main characters have a dangerous past and are trying to be good in the present. Humour present in both are comparable.
Both are your non-standard teachers who help the students and "lecture" them outside of school. This is the he way deals with problematic kids, and aid the not so bad ones. However the differences are that Onizuka wanted to do it, but Junichirou didn't, and also Junichirou is open about the fact that he is a hardcore otaku and seems to have everything going for him. Unlike Onizuka who had to overcome many obstacles as a teacher, and fight for both the privilege to teach as well as many things and Junichirou had the job forced on him against his will.
Ever assigned to teach a bunch of socially-rejected pupils? Here is your chance. Denpa Kyoushi as well as GTO offer you the chance to laugh of what a teacher can do, if he's also by himself, rejected by society. Although Comedy is not guaranteed in both of the series, the enjoyment rate will change your vision into what schooling means. But most important is that... here they share the fact that they're teaching us what it meant to be a teacher.
Both having the main MC(Teacher) guiding the students to go on the correct path
The Main MC originally not suited to be a teacher(GTO-Yankee, DK-Otaku)
The MC got accepted to the school due to the principle finding them interesting.
These are literally the same show but one is biker gang guy and one is NEET.
-Both shows has NEETs as Protagonist's
-They suddenly become a Teacher
-They help students with problems
Kagami has the brains, Onizuka has the power.
The MC become a great teacher and has some different
-Kagami is a great teacher otaku
-Onizuka is a great teacher bad boys
both have a delincuent its the main character and both are to die laughing.
... and of course both happens in the school
They're both very very funny anime's, their humor is VERY similar but GTO is a bit more ecchi at times. Also both are episodic in nature, meaning there's no MAIN plot, just a couple plots that last a couple episodes each with themes.
high school settings, with badass main characters
2 of the funniest anime out there, both with similar comedy
Both series are first of all, takes place at a school life setting with a large cast of characters.
Both series' main protagonists are viewed and portrayed as delinquents but later gets character development through his interactions with the other cast members.
Both series contain random humor, drama, action (less so in School Rumble), and some romance.
Both series are overall entertaining and even teaches a value in some of the episodes.
Both main male characters are misunderstood delinquents. This fact causes lots of drama for them which always results in hilarious outcomes.
Both shows are perfect for a good laugh.
School Rumble is the rightful rec for any GTO inquiry and vice versa.
GTO offers you a more mature experience using similar jokes, animation, crazy events, etc. Think of GTO as the older brother to School Rumble. The funny thing is that Onizuka was a biker prior to being a teacher, so although the stories don't converge there are stark similarities.
Put simply, if you liked School Rumble and don't mind a slightly more mature version then GTO will reward you. Also let me mention, GTO is one of the best anime I have ever seen in all regards.
