The official Tokyopop GTO box 1 has episodes 1- 23 and consist of the regular GTO discs 1 to 5 (along with a box and t-shirt). The one on amazon could be a bootleg.
I got my information on the first box set at http://www.tokyopop.com/dbpage.php?p...productid=1638
I've checked numerous online stores and came out negative with box set 1. I've found none with it in stock as of yet. If all else fails, there is the option to purchase the first 5 DVD's individually. I've emailed TokyoPop about box set 1, but haven't heard back from them yet.

Well apparently there has to be a collectors box as well that has all 10 DVD in it. At least that is what a friend of mine claims.

PS The individual DVD's 1-5 are the same as the ones in Box 1 so you would only loose the box itself if you cannot find it.

The second box set was just released last month, so if there will be a full collection, it won't be out anytime soon.
I had speculated that about the TokyoPop boxsets. With the individual DVD purchase scenario, I'd pay more for less (minus the box and the t-shirt.) That is the final option I have.

This series was a lot of fun to watch, I bought it off of Ebay for a pretty good price. There were some scenes that were a bit too ecchi and the character designs were kind of ugly, but the storyline was so great that it kept you watching. I highly recommend it.

I also recommend the Live Action version of GTO. It's great and it's unlicensed so you can grab it off of this site. =d

Woah this thread has been really inactive after the forum incident. Anyways i had a question about GTO series. Is there an OVA for the series after the 43 episodes?. I really didnt like the series ending. It wasnt bad, but i had hoped for some other ending. I mean he should have been proved innocent right?. so why that kind of ending in which
Spoiler for For ending:
. Does any one know if Manga has a better ending?. if it does i want to buy it and read it so could any one who has read it say if it is worth the try?.

Also i had some questions about the live action version of GTO. is it a sequel to the series?. or Does it have a completely diffrent story?.

Manga ending
Spoiler:


I think it was quite a good ending though. I recommend it. It would be better if the manga end with Onizuka returned though.

For more information on the manga story, check this website.
http://www.angelfire.com/geek/tetrisnomiko/gto/gto.html

The live action is kinda an alternate universe of GTO. It is basicly the same but with quite some differences though. For example, there's no Urumi or Anko etc. It's enjoyable and certain episodes left me in tears. Hehe.

Time for me to ask question. How does the anime end? I didn't watch the anime....
Thanks!!!

Thanks alot for the summary. It was very well done ^_^. Anime version of GTO was really good too. I can say GTO is one of the few anime that made me depressed by being ended, not because it was depressing but because it was such an enjoyable anime. Regarding the ending, it wasnt that bad. I basically just didnt like it, because the same as Manga he doesnt return.
Spoiler for Anime ending:


I am really bad at doing summaries, sorry if it isnt clear enough . What i still cant figure out myself is why Onizuka even had to run. I mean Saito awakes at the end and the Board of the education gets revlealed to the public.

About the LA version of GTO , it sucks that they dont have Urumi. She was my favorit character too ^_^.

So the anime end this way. It seems to make Onizuka less godlike if he had to run away from police...

I agree that LA don't have much characters. And the students didn't have much role in helping Onizuka unlike in the manga. And each episodes feature the evil teachers trying to kick Onizuka out from school. Kinda funny. And Fuyutsuki had a bigger role in the LA. But honestly, I don't like her very much.

This anime rocks, its the funniest anime series I've watched ( shame bobobo got licensed because that would be pretty close ).

The LA is pretty bad imo.....

Her father is a brilliant scientist whose sperm was bought to create her. Basically, she was conceived through a sperm bank.

hmm

thanx a lot. i actually looked into it and figured it out. i actaully caught that while watching the anime, but i guess i just didnt think it was that big of a deal, so i kept thinking there was more behind it.

Damn, either I wasn't paying enough attention in the Anime, or my episodes didn't come with this information. Lol, I'm willing to bet the former is true.

Does anyone know what episode that is explained in?

GTO question?

Hi.

I watched Great Teacher Onizuka and I have a question about a trivial matter I thought was odd. Anyway, when they had to take the national test, where Onizuka had to score best points, they didn't show Kanzaki Urumi in the list of top scores from that test when the results came. I understood from the earlier episodes, that she's supposed to be a genius with IQ over 200. So, it would be reasonable, that she would've scored full points or at least something near to that score. Did the ones who created the serie forget her or what's the reason she didn't score excellent points from that test? At least I didn't notice that happening, did I miss something? Anyway, it kinda bothered me. It's a trivial matter, which doesn't matter, but it was kind of disturbing.

Bear with me.

I would suggest you to watch GTO Live Action and also the 2 Movies/Special ( live action ) after completing the Anime . Dont be skeptical regarding the name Great Teacher Onizuka its will be a total shock once you watch it .

One of the better animes around definately

LOL good question . There can be a few possibilities. Well one is that 1) She didnt score high enough on purpose so that Onizuka can stay. 2) She is the idol of the school and smartest person so as she is allowed to skip school she can Also not take the tests .

Well.............................................. ..................................... Ok fine. I will stop joking around .

The reason is that She is introduced in episode 16, while He took the test in episode 15. I hope that helps .
