A So-So GTO...Which Means It's Still Good

"This was a welcome relief from the weak fifth volume of this series, but like the fifth, it neither connects much to the past, nor sets up anything major for future volumes, up until the final episode on this DVD.To quickly review what this series is about: Eikichi Onizuka, a former bike gang member, college karate champ, 22 years old and a bachelor, has taken it upon himself to be the world's greatest teacher. With little or no qualifications, he somehow gets accepted into a prestigious school, is assigned the worst class of delinquents and somehow has to control them.Onizuka has to deal with various opponent-students during the course of the series: bully Aizawa Miyabi, super smart Kikuchi, fatal genius Urumi Kanzaki, and fierce Kunio Murai.His opponent(s) this time include Vice Principal Uchiyamada, from a different perspective, and the seductively beautiful new school nurse Kadena. This time, Uchiyamada isn't steamed about Onizuka's un-teacher-like in-school tactics--seems his daughter has fallen for Uchiyamada's worst nightmare. Then, the school is taken by storm as a voluptuous nurse takes up residence at Holy Forest. Girls either envy her, or need something from her, while all the men are hopelessly under her charms. When she starts running a slightly illegal school clinic, Onizuka's best friend Ryuji recognizes her as the "Queen of Hakosuka," like Onizuka, a former gang member. However, her specialty was a car street race beating out red lights. GTO takes a step outside the school as he tries to deal with the alluring nurse.Again, watching this series in Japanese is *necessary*, not only for the word jokes but because the story has pretty significant differences from the English to the Japanese versionin terms of what's going on. The Japanese vocal cast is far superior, and the vocal intonations better match the facial expressions; the storyline and what they say are far more risque and naughtier than the English dub as well.If you've been collecting the series up to this point, I don't need to tell you to buy it. If you haven't, you're best off having watched the previous volumes, and may struggle as to who's bad, good, and why if this is your first GTO."
More than makes up for Vol. 5

"Volume 5 got REALLY slow towards the end and had me wondering if I should even keep buying GTO DVDs. Thankfully I bought Vol. 6! This is the only GTO DVD that I have watched straight through from start to finish! I couldn't put it down and had to find out what would happen next. This volume also has some more intelligent jokes in it (at least the japanese version does) that had me laughing out loud, which I don't remember doing with the earlier volumes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Good Ol' Onizuka

"This DVD goes back to what the 5th DVD diverged from: Onizuka. This disc cracked me up, especially the episode concentrating on Uchiyamada and his hatred of Onizuka - who now, it seems, has seduced his daughter and ruined his happiness. This stuff just keeps getting better; although I thought the show was losing its shine on the previous disc, this one (thankfully) proves me wrong. Highly recommended to all the Eikichi fans out there."
