Find out who you are and what your dreams are and pursue those dreams by hneline1 March 22, 2003 - 3:44 PM PST

GTO continues to be a dramedy with a strong message: find out who you are and what your dreams are and pursue those dreams... life is not a bed of roses but it can be pretty good if you try. On the one hand, I like the positive attitude and good role models that this series creates: very human and imperfect people who are nonetheless doing good with their lives (no teens saving the universe here, but plenty of sympathetic characters surviving embarrassing social situations and pressures and helping each other with friendship and acceptance). On the other hand, this series is losing its earlier edge and grittiness as each story arc ends positively. No, I'm not necessarily looking for death and destruction, but maybe after 27 episodes I'm looking for a little more escapism than the quality social drama that this series offers (as I look down at my feet in embarrassment thinking that "quality social drama" is a GOOD thing and should be supported... but maybe not when I'm in the mood for a hack and slash like Berserk or an action mystery like Noir).

Having said that, I will say that I really liked the second story arc in this DVD about the new school nurse Nao Kadena and her mysterious past, and I also found the final episode about Onizuka's attempts to jumpstart Tomoko's showbiz career pretty hilarious. If you like street racing and don't mind some insight into what happens after young gang members grow up a little, this is a fun DVD to watch.

Also, the extras contain Part 3 of the interview with Tohru Fujisawa, the creator of the manga on which this anime is based. I liked this interview section because Fujisawa gives some specific insight into Onizuka's character, how he handles fan reactions, his take on student/teacher relations, and why he decided to create Onizuka in the first place. This is a fascinating extra if you are a GTO fan.
