Onizuka 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.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Also contains the gaiden "GTO: Great Toroko Oppai♡" (Tomoko's Big Adventures).

I've hunted this manga for quite a while but there were always problems with the order. The translation was poorly done because it had a lot of spelling mistakes in it and failed to use proper use of the English language in some scenes.

That aside, this is by far the best manga I have ever read. I am stunned, the concept is so simple but so well thought out.

Well let’s start with a quick introduction to the story. Eikichi Onizuka is a 22 year old virgin and ex-gang leader of the dreaded motorcycle gang “Oni-Baku”. He’s a street punk with piercings and bleached hair, a read more

I can only use one word to describe this manga, OUTSTANDING! This is definitely must-read manga for all shounen manga lovers!

The story is nevertheless to say, more than great. I didn't talk this blindly, though. This manga can describes what is going wrong with the education system in this era. The story can makes you more mature by understanding the society more deeply than ever. If you are thinking 'manga should not be too realistic' right now, then you are definitely wrong. While it describes how serious the problem is, it also slips many sense of humor (most of it is perverted one :P) and read more

This manga, I can safely say, needs to be on everyone's "must read" list. I've been recommended this manga by a friend, and I tried it out. This was a refreshing change of pace from other popular manga out there. Maybe it was the more realistic setting, or it could have been the great arcs in each plot development. Whatever it was, I fell in love with this manga.

To begin, let's start with the story. To be honest, I personally thought it was a bit slow in the beginning. The "teacher" portion of GTO doesn't actually happen until a bit later on. However, once Eikichi read more

Denpa Kyoushi is like GTO for the 21. century. Both Onizuka and Kagami help students in their own way, Kagami using that brilliant brain of his and Onizuka pulling through with sheer strength and willpower.
If you like Kamen Teacher, then you must read the legendary Great Teacher Onizuka, and shame on you if you haven't already. Created also by Tohru Fujisawa, GTO offers the same humour and obscure teaching methods used in Kamen Teacher.
More in-line with plagiarism than a show of respect, the beginnings of The Breaker cannot but help one think of GTO/Onizuka. A new badarse teacher starts teaching at a school, bumps into a bullied kid, has to save him from jumping off the school roof and - of course - tries to get it on with a hot female teacher. If not for the art being so fantastic and GTO being equally fantastic, I'm sure this issue would be touched upon more than it has been.

Awhile after its GTO-theft introduction period, it does go off in its own martial arts / The Karate Kid direction. However, it completely goes to shit once the martial arts elite nonsense takes over completely, late on; becoming a subpar shounen fighting manga with A++++ art.
Protagonists that break society's norm of a typical teacher. They both provide the students with life lessons through unorthodox means. A tentacled monster that plans on destroying the Earth in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu and a reformed biker gang leader in GTO.

Both teachers go through outrageous lengths; following their own unconventional methods to help the students in both school and real life. They are constantly pursuing the ambition to become the world's greatest teacher.
In these two publications, delinquents are subjected to teachers who are determined to change their lives for the better. Both teachers teach their students important life lessons.
A male delinquent takes on a leadership roll and becomes responsible for the well being of his class and his school. Tho he means well people still see him as a delinquent and try to get in his way... lifes not so simple even when you dont fallow the rules
