GTO, Shibatora Recommendations
There were times while I was reading Shibatora that I thought I was reading a new chapter of GTO - and that is among the highest praise I can give a manga. Unlike most manga that are considered "similar" to GTO, Shibatora is not another rehashed teacher-delinquent student story. Instead of an unusual teacher, it's an unusual detective. However, the underlying themes, motifs, humor and, ultimately, uplifting nature of GTO are all present in Shibatora. If you liked one, I have absolutely no doubt that you will like the other.
