Great Teacher Onizuka is a goldmine of legendary memes. Its plot is so questionable that it’s a surprise that the FBI has not been called on Onizuka Sensei.
The manga started way back in 1997, by mangaka Tohru Fujisawa. The series has spawned multiple spinoff mangas, got live-action adaptations, and an anime series.
Due to its popularity, I can bet that even you might have seen glimpses of this great literature somewhere.

The Great Teacher Onizuka mangaka Tohru Fujisawa announced on Saturday that the sequel GTO: Paradise Lost is intended to be the “last” manga in the series.

Tohru Fujisawa, in the past, has shown interest in starting a new story. However, most of the work gets relegated due to his commitment to Great Teacher Onizuka.
In 2019, he drew a one-shot for a science fiction manga titled “Sodom Keepers.”
He even announced a new manga series titled Re: Animal Joe on 13th May 2019. However, the manga only ran for two chapters. Moreover, his Red Data-Planet manga with co-creator Iomaru was not even launched.

About Great Teacher Onizuka
Great Teacher Onizuka, officially abbreviated as GTO, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tooru Fujisawa. It was originally serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine from January 1997 to February 2002.
It is a continuation of Fujisawa’s earlier manga series Shonan Junai Gumi and Bad Company, both of which focus on the life of Onizuka before becoming a teacher.
Eikichi Onizuka, a 22-year-old ex-biker gang leader, leaves his old life behind to become the greatest teacher of all time.
However, his passion is something completely different from teaching. He wants a loving teen wife for his old-age, and a high school is a perfect place for wooing a teenager.
Onizuka finds a place to prove his worth and hence begins the psychological warfare between witty teens who hate all teachers and a perverted, lazy and greedy yet, intelligent teacher, Onizuka.
