Hīrōbites – Greatest Teacher Onizuka

Let’s celebrate teacher Onizuka’s birthday

Have you seen Great Teacher Onizuka? It is a manga and anime aimed at adults and teenagers. It deals with our birthday boy of the week 22-year old Eikichi Onizuka, an eccentric mischievous and secretly perverted teacher. He contradicts and challenges every rule and law any respectable school abides by. He uses genius and unconventional ways to gets his message across to people he tries to help. In the anime series Great Teacher Onizuka (or GTO to his fan base), he is the Homeroom teacher of class 3-4 at Seirin Academy. He teaches Social Studies (Sociology) but his real teachings go beyond that; teaching his students about the reality of life.

Onizuka used to be the leader of the Oni-Baku biker gang. He is still respected, revered and feared by his formal biker buddies. He is still riding a bike in the series as we always see him riding his Kawasaki 750 Road Star z2, on which he sometimes even carry a student. He miraculously solves his students’ problems and has even jumped off the school’s rooftop in order to save a student or another teacher. He also works hard with perseverance and determination to earn a student’s friendship.

Onizuka Trivia

Onizuka is a chain smoker, smoking Mild Seven.
He also loves eating, especially sushi. (Once he did not have money to pay for his sushi so he ‘arranged’ to get hit by a car and made the driver pay for the sushi)
Onizuka’s interests include girls of the legal age, to become the greatest teacher in Japan, cosplay and motorcycles.
Being born on August 3rd makes him a Leo.

Onizuka also had a few live action movies and a live action series GTO Taiwan. GTO Taiwan is a continuance on the stories from the Manga and anime. Ex-gangster-turned-teacher Onizuka has been invited to a Taiwanese high school to be a one-week teaching assistant… and those of us that knows Onizuka knows that the Taiwanese students are in for some interesting times…
