Eikichi Onizuka, former biker turned great teacher, is back home in the Tokyo suburbs for a well deserved break (...and to escape possible discipline from his employers at the Tokyo Kissho Academy). But once he arrives he quickly finds himself assisting a new child protection home as they try to guide troubled teens back to the path of happiness. Unfortunately for the GTO he has run into a buzzsaw in the form of Miki Katsuragi. Miki is determined to rid her home, the White Swan, of nosy know-nothing adults, and has the financial and political capital to not only have the teacher reconsider his lesson-plan but probably send off the straight and narrow entirely.
Then again, who said Onizuka was ever on that path to begin with...The Oni-Baku rides again and manga will be all the better for it.

Best known globally for his international sensation Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO), Fujisawa was awarded the 22nd Kodansha Comic Award in 1998 for his work on the hit series. The GTO property would go on to inspire two animated TV series and an internationally distributed live action TV series by the same name. Since GTO, Fujisawa has gone on to thirteen more comic series, with four of those properties (TOKKO, Rose Hip Rose, Rose Hip Zero and Shonan Junai-gumi) landing on American shores.
