Trivia

  • Despite being set two years after the events of Great Teacher Onizuka, Paradise Lost depicts contemporary fashion trends, pop culture, and technological advancements rather than those of the early 2000s.
  • Unlike Great Teacher Onizuka and GTO: 14 Days in Shonan, Paradise Lost's chapter segments are not designated as lessons.
  • Paradise Lost is the first in the series to visually depict nudity, albeit with the genitalia censored.
