Manga Review: GTO Shonan 14 Days (Volume 1)

Manga Review:
GTO Shonan 14 Days

In this volume of the sequel to the Great Teacher Onizuka series, Onizuka takes a new job as a Group Home Counselor (O.O)

This manga starts off where the end of the GTO anime series leaves off. Onizuka has reconciled with his homeroom class and getting ready to start summer vacation.

Now Onizuka is going on summer vacation and he's trying to find a gig for the summer!

But not before playing some pranks on the Headmaster!  

Onizuka tries out a few different things (you'll have to read to find out) before finding his calling for summer vacation. 

... Then he happens to meet Fuyutsuki's good friend, Ayame Shiratori, on the train. Do you think he has second thoughts about Fuyutsuki when he starts to hit on her girlfriend???

Eventually she offers him a job at a teen group home that she runs with another woman. Onizuka politely... accepts. But not before fantasizing about his future!

Onizuka has no idea that the kids that live at the group home are just as bad, if not worse, than his kids back at the school. He promises to change them for the better and in turn one of them promises to teach Onizuka a permanent lesson in choosing promises. One of the young women at the group home vows to chase Onizuka out before he can help anyone.

This manga was really good. It's a good one to read if you're bored or you're stuck inside on a rainy day. It did seem like it had less jokes and more violence than usual GTO. There are some fanservice shots also. This volume is plot driven and a good addition for any fan of the Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) series.

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
