Sometimes, you just feel like letting go of the past and starting fresh, you get me?
Well, Great Teacher Onizuka is the story of a former gangster trying to restart his life by being a teacher. Just from that description alone I’m sure you can guess what kind of story it is. It’s hilarious most of the times but will definitely make you shed a few tears.
Originally a manga written by Tooru Fujisawa, you can now watch the anime adaptation on Netflix. All 43 episodes of the show are available but unfortunately, they’re not in HD. Seeing as how show debuted in 1999, that shouldn’t come off as a surprise.
Regardless of the quality of the stream, it’s perfectly watchable and highly recommended. It’s just one of those anime that really sticks with you years after you’ve seen it. Tons of fun and a few great life lessons too.
