This was a great opening to the series. Despite the fact that the show is ten years old, it still has that "relevant" feel to it. I enjoyed the gritty dramatic feeling with the show. The way the main character dealt with the students lives was a bit unorthodox, but I think that's what I enjoyed about the show.
I feel that GTO has a very high chance of becoming a personal favourite.
TEACHER BANZAI xD I was in a "watch an old anime mood" so I decided to chek this out and I loved it ... It looks very promising! Btw am I watching the wrong series or the first episode is really 48 minutes cuz i thing I've mistaken something cuz I didnt see anything with GDT or someting xD
PS - Onizuka reminds me of Sanji form OP xD
Ah great start of this show! This show sure has lots of potential and with the first episode being an extra long edition the story really gets good already from the start! lets see what this whole serie has to offer!
Onizuka's insane. He's probably the only adult capable of earning any incorrigible ruffian's respect. I hope the show continues down that road instead of playing up the perversion.
I really love the art, too. The expressions and ruffians look soooo gritty, whereas the girls are all perfect little flowers. Everything's drawn as Onizuka would see it. (The opening's pretty awesome, too.)
Nanako's behavior was too promiscuous, though. I was surprised she even went along with the trap (err, that she planned herself. :S), much less seriously start undressing in front of her teacher. I understand he really did a lot for her (also unrealistic but epic enough for fiction), but really? That's how she thanks him?
It felt a little bit odd at first with the animation and all, but it didn't take long to get used. The show really dragged me in but in the middle of it I got this feeling that it was running for a bit too long, turned out it was a 48 minute episode. Very entertaining and I got high hopes for this anime, you can pull of a lot of things with this kind of story.
That was an amazing first episode. I was watching season 3 of bakuman when i first saw this (to decide on what to watch next). It reeled me in, i wanted to watch this episode more than the last few of bakuman.
This anime is freaking awesome, haven't laughed so much since the last time I watched an episode of Gintama. I just love the faces Eikichi makes, they crack me up every time especially the last one at the end xD

This show has SO much potential! I loved the first episode! anyone know what GDO stands for?
