For a long time, people have loved GTO, a.k.a. Great Teacher Onizuka, the story of a gang-member-turned-awesome-teacher. The original manga ran from 1997 to 2002, which spawned a live-action TV drama, a movie, and an anime, all around the same time period. A follow-up manga, GTO Shonan 14 Days, ran from 2009 to 2011. But that's not enough!
There's a remake of the TV show planned, with a new actor playing Onizuka. This time around, it's Akira, a member of the 14-member pop group EXILE. Miori Takimoto will play Azusa Fuyutsuki and Hitomi Kuroki is principal Sakurai Ryoko, while Yuu Shirota plays Ryuji Danma.
Looks like a solid main cast, and due to the casting of Akira, Onizuka might actually have blonde hair this time around. Will you be "tuning in" to Fuji TV every Tuesday at 10PM, starting this July?
