Gardener Eikichi Onizuka (Akira) is pruning trees at a school garden as part time work. A student named Noboru Yoshikawa (Taishi Nakagawa), who is Azu Fuyuzuki's (Miori Takimoto) student, is about to jump from the roof. Eikichi Onizuka sees the student and talks the student out of jumping. Noboru Yoshikawa is bullied by 3 female classmates including Anzu Uehara (Yua Shinkawa). These 3 girls also takes Noboru Yoshikawa's money before class starts.

Eikichi Onizuka then talks with Yoshiko Sakurai (Hitomi Kuroki), the owner of the school cafeteria. 3 students who insist they were kicked out of school for unreasonable reason break into the school cafeteria.

Vice principal Hiroshi Uchiyamada (Ryosei Tayama) harshly blames these 3 kids. Eikichi Onizuka becomes angry at Hiroshi Uchiyamada and literally throws Hiroshi Uchiyamada aside. At that moment, student Noboru Yoshikawa, teacher Azu Fuyuzuki and chief director of the school Sakurai watch the incident.

Yuzuru The original cast T.T love it

CaptainMarvelous Season 3 please with Fuyutsuki and Kanzaki

fernandi richardo I love this movie, can take a good way and true friendship

Mey the drama is motivated mee :) i wanna be your students Onizuka-senseiii ... hahaha i hope i can watch the next story of GTO .. im waiting the neww filmmmmm ^^

d'sign I want onizuka be my teacher too...

ace I posted before but it disappeared. In the comment I admitted to being an unabashedly fan of this series. How it had a very near perfect cast etc etc. But one thng I really liked that I didn't really mention was the cinematography. Whoever did the blocking and scene shots etc really knows their business. Really good visual storytelling.

(One I liked was after Kikuchi helped save a classmate. He did a good deed but as he walked away the camera did a ever-so-slight Dutch Tilt. Showing Kikuchi was bit twisted) and that is just a quick one in a series full of equally great ones. Not intrusive or overly clever but just right.

All-in-all, that substatial talent in front and behind the camera made for a fun series to watch.

ace I will start by admitting I'm an unabashed fan of this show. Never having read the manga or watched the anime I had no reason to compare them. But I have watched the earlier live action version. Both versions have pros and cons. Some stuff I liked more in one and some stuff I liked more in the other. Wish I could cherry pick the best parts of each and do a mash up. But I think I like this version more overall. Largely due to the casting. The kids really impressed me. Tsubasa Honda and Haruna Kawaguchi in particular stood out but almost all of them were really good. But it wasn't just the kids, Miori Takimoto, Hitomi Kuroki and Akira were all great.

The plot has a lot of flaws but even so, it is a  really fun watch.

I watched the series that followed, in Taiwan and the 2014 one, as well. I didn't care for GTO in Taiwan but I liked the 2014 because it was in GTO's hometown. But any GTO that lacks Azusa Fuyuzuki is always going be missing something. Not to say Manami Higa was not great. And her character was interesting. But Fuyuzuki seems crucial to me in a GTO show.

nurman I watch it continously...:)

Toulue Who's julia murai played by???

Rifukii Afayumi best asian film i ever seen :)

Fery Hi GTO, I Love Tsubasa Honda, I love Mariya Nishiuci, I Love Haruna Kawagachi, I Love Yua Shinkawa, I Love Sara Takatsuki, And I Like This Film, This Is The Best, I'M From Indonesian Fan. I Want Onizuka Sensei Go To Indonesian To Be Teacher In Indonesian. ^_^ Go To Japan.

Rida fukada I'm indonesian fan. Greetings for GTO. GTO 2012 is the best,,,,, This film is very funny & great! i love it.. Hi honda tsubasa.. hi kawaguchi haruna.. hi AKIRA.. hi miori takimoto.. hi shinkawa yua.. hi taishi nakagawa.. hi yuki yamada.. i love you all........... ^_^

HC PS: I'm AHC and I'm Indonesian. One of the quote that I learnt from this drama "Smile is Fun." :) (Episode 11)

AHC PS: Indonesian Fans :) One quotes that I learnt from this drama "Smile is Fun" :) (Ep. 11)

AHC This is the first time I like manga. I love this drama. These dramas taught us everything, about family, friendship, and I learnt many things from this drama. Is there anyone agree with my opinion?

SC I agree with DF, but honestly i love GTO remake too ( kawaiii ne) so i don't care wich one better, can not compare both or any (if there's others remake again) of them, much important is the good massage in GTO story about friendship, family,etc.

PS This drama is good enough. But honestly, in my opinion GTO 1998 was so much better than GTO 2012. In GTO 1998, I felt the good partner's chemistry from Onizuka (Takashi Sorimachi) and Fuyutsuki (Nanako Matsushima). But that kind of chemistry was not exist in GTO 2012.

asha131097 love it.. fan malaysia

junpei mizocendol @DF Totally agree with you

I hope so i like Drama GTO or the anime i hope GTO have new Series with new pupils and her old friend with many episodes i so sad,if this drama ends with 14 episodes

Airpit Discovey thumbs up!! better than GTO 1998. love honda tsubasa.. very cute girl FRom: MALAYSIA FANS

DF I don't understand why so many people love this series. If you are a fan of GTO (anime, manga, and 1998 TV series), this will not be your cup of tea. You will have a problem of comparing this to them. The acting is pretty bad by the cast except for a few of the students, the editing doesn't allow any character development for the characters thus making it feel rushed, the show doesn't know if it was to be a comedy/drama/or anime like show, the music is really corny where it takes you out of an emotional scene, and it is super cheesy.

I do think there are some positives though. For instance, some of the students actually do some good acting. The main leads suck though. Another positive is the story isn't exactly the same as the anime or 1998 TV series. This was good for me because it kept me curious of where the story was going to go.

Overall, this was not a great show. I highly recommend checking out the 1998 TV series. It is honestly a great representation of the anime. There is actual development and you get a better idea of why Onizuka wants to be a teacher. I think that was the main strength for me.

somebody i watched both ' GTO 1998 ' and " GTO 2012 " i liked 2012 GTO it was perfect and funny more than 1998 GTO

Anton Kusuma it's so awesome..realy i so like it.. hope GTO can go to Indonesia to see us (GTO fans club Indobesia)

danur Onizuka looks like Keisuke Honda

Ryc we don't care about the ratings, so piss off dude

pls make more SP, love it.. :DD

HorribleShow I'm being honest

Cliche lines, horrendous acting, unrealistic and embarrassing portrayal of a thug teacher done by thy one and only Akira. His acting was so bad I felt embarrassed for him...

All students look almost the same (I'm Asian for God' sake, but I can't even tell them apart)

Shirota Yu is the only decent one here that is at least charming and can pull off his role decently

God knows why this has gotten 13.9% ratings...

Rozie chan GTO was soooooo good. They couldn't possibly find someone better than Akira to potray an iconic character such as Eikichi Onizuka. The drama was a bit mellow but nonetheless still has that effect of tugging on ones heartstrings like how the anime and manga does.

Umi Akira is the best he can potrays the onizuka role very it

Kawada This drama looks ridiculous! Sorimachi is the one and only Onizuka ever!!

Banno Rosemarie I Love GTO so Much and I Like Every One Casting GTO AND Mostly AKIRA

Master Drama love this drama , its so funny. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!
