Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) revolves around an eccentric, yet mischievous teacher who is not afraid of brazenly admitting to being a pervert. At 22-years-old, Eikichi Onizuka represents everything that contradicts and challenges the foundations of the educational system. His methods are considered bizarre and often dangerous. Despite this, Onizuka manages to earn his students' trust and respect one-by-one while simultaneously teaching them life lessons.
Shonan Junai Gumi (English: Shonan Pure Love Gang) is a 31-volume prequel to GTO. It depicts Eikichi Onizuka and Ryuji Danma as teenagers in the infamous Oni-Bakubōsōzoku gang. The shōnen manga was originally published between March 1990 and September 1996 in 31 volumes. In 2009, it was retitled GTO: The Early Years for the English digital deluxe release.
You know why they call these sunflowers? It's because no matter what the time of day you look at them, they're always facing the sun. When the sun's in the east, the flowers point east. When the sun's in the west, the flowers point west. They're like little yellow suns themselves, always looking for their parent sun in the sky. And as long as the sun is shining, each one is never alone and never sad and never cries. That's why this garden is such an ideal place to visit when you're feeling down. The sunflowers never fail to remind us there's always a reason to smile.
