Thanks, Nosajj- good to see more of the cast. To nitpick, having always been partial to Shinomi I have to say this version doesn't look quite as good a match as Satou Shinobu was back in the 90s live-action, but probably that's an unfair judgement based on such a small image/ not having seen her actually acting!

Only two days left and not a word about it showing outside Japan... I have a bad feeling about this :(

Anyway, yeah, this should give us a general idea of what arcs we should expect. It's been a while since I read SJG though, am I right in thinking that most of these arcs happen in the first half(ish) of the manga? I wonder if they're adapting the early stories so they can leave open the possibility of making a second season later, based on the later arcs?


Looks like it’s the first half of the manga only. The Midnight Angels Revival Arc seems like it’s as far as it gets.

It's out (in Japan). I watched the first episode with a trial subscription to Prime Video and a VPN (they seem to block most of them, not sure how long the one I made it through with will remain useful).

So far it seems pretty good and I really want to watch the whole thing, but I also kind of don't want to spoil it in case there will be a subtitled version (PLEASE let there be a subtitled version!).

The first episode
Spoiler:
follows the manga almost exactly, up to the point where Eikichi and Ryuuji come to school to find Mariko and Ayumi are teachers. Looks like second episode will be Kamakura Mad Dogs, but I'm gonna hold off on watching it for now.

8 episodes total, ~35 minutes each.

Actually, fuck waiting.

Episode 2:
Spoiler:
Makoto and Tsukai are introduced, abbreviated culture festival/Aina storyline, Minamino, and the beginning of Kamakura Mad Dogs arc all in one episode. Whew. The actor who played Teshigawara in the '98 GTO drama plays the principal here.

Episode 3:
Spoiler:
Begins with Onizuka having a dream that he's a teacher and his students make fun of him for being a virgin, Poison plays in the background lol. Rest of the episode is a somewhat shortened version of the Kamakura Mad Dogs arc. It ends after Onibaku takes them out, so now I wonder how they're going to have them befriend each other since they definitely didn't end this episode on good terms...

Sounds pretty good. A bit too fast-paced from what I read... Oh well.

How... naughty does it get? SJG was super raunchy in the beginning. Fujisawa used to draw hentai so it makes sense.

I love that the actor from 98 was there. The principal from '98 was in the 2012 drama as well, was he not? I don't remember.

Not very. It focuses mainly on the fights and rivalries and all that, the raunchy comedy takes a backseat. There is some stuff in it that you just know they'd never do in the GTO TV dramas, like girls in their underwear and such but don't expect to see scenes like Ryuji getting his dick stuck in the hole in the wall or anything like that.

He was not, you may be thinking of how he also played the principal in the old SJG video drama. It's kind of amusing, isn't it, how both live action versions of SJG have an actor from GTO '98 play the principal!

The first three episodes have been made available on numerous websites advertising English subs, but they all look to be raws.
