List of Characters

English teacher of the Holy Forest Academy.

Another Onizuka's workmate who doesn't like him. His English speaking is somewhat weak, made obvious by Urumi Kanzaki's public observation on his errors. In fact, since then, he's been trying to improve on his English.

Don't be fooled by his surname, because he is not married to or related to Ryoko Sakurai in any way. The last name is different in the anime because it is a way to avoid this confusion. He is actually quite married with a wife and child of his own.

Anime & Manga Differences

  • Manga: One of his hobbies will come into play.. allowing Aizawa to take advantage of it (via Blackmail) in her attempts to get rid of Onizuka.
    Despite his crimes he keeps to be unpunished in the school.
  • Anime: Something he did before becoming a teacher allows Aizawa to take advantage of him (via Blackmail) in her attempts to get rid of Onizuka.
  • Anime: His name is changed to Tadashi Sakurada to avoid confusion with Ryoko Sakurai.
