Hi there. I really have nothing much to say to start out this review. Only that my computer is craptastic, crashing every few hours or even every few minutes, even when there is nothing going on that would cause it to crash. Yeah, fun times. Anyway, this time I have something of a classic to review. Nearly everyone who has ever had any interest in anime probably have heard of Great Teacher Onizuka (or GTO) at some point in their hobby, but does this series hold up when one doesn't look at it with nostalgic eyes? Let's find out.
|Onizuka: Educating tomorrow's leaders with a sledgehammer.|
|You better get use to the ridiculous costumes and faces right now.|
|I swear, I didn't know she was only 14.|
Great Teacher Onizuka is a fairly well-done series, and it is understandable why it got so popular. While it isn't perfect, it is certainly one of the better made series that was localized in the early days of anime distribution. However, the quantity of references coupled with a rather sense of humor that may not be for everyone and some missteps in overall storytelling does not insure that everyone who watches it will enjoy it. And so, it is just recommended.
Until next time.
