A lot has been going on in the world of the new live action drama lately. Last week a complete cast list for the teaching staff and Onizuka’s students was announced, along with a revamping of the official drama website. We have listed the complete cast list bellow, but there are so many roles that we have to decided to dedicate new a cast guide page for a more thorough look at the actors, equipped with images of them to compare with their manga equivalents. There were some names bellow that I was unsure how to read, so I marked them with a question mark. Also I’d like to point out that Fujisawa Toru’s own wife will be a member of the cast! In case you miss it bellow, she will be playing the role of Shiratori Ayame. This brings me to my next point, Shiratori will be part of the teaching staff at Onizuka’s school rather than a caretaker at a children’s home like in the original story. It seems like other characters from GTO Shonan 14 Days will be inserted into the story as members of Onizuka’s class as well. See if you can spot them!

A synopsis of the first episode has been made available on the Fuji TV website. I have given a rough summery of it which you can read bellow. Be prepared though, it does contain spoilers. If you would rather see what the new drama is like for yourself, I would not recommend reading any further.

 

Onizuka is working as a part time gardener, and one day he helps out Fuyutsuki and Miyabi by dealing with some delinquents who are giving them trouble at a bus stop. Meanwhile we see Noboru getting bullied by Anko and co, and they demand money for embarrassing pictures they take of him. Onizuka is working at their school pruning some trees when he spots Noboru on the roof ready to jump off. Onizuka yells at him which makes Noboru leave. At lunch Onizuka talks to the canteen lady (Chairwoman Sakurai) and bumps into Fuyutsuki again. Suddenly three students who were previously kicked out of the school appear searching for Uchiyamada. The story pretty much follows the manga at this point, Uchiyamada calls them trash and Onizuka, who was going to help him, turns on him instead and gives him a GERMAN SUPLEX (not a roundhouse kick like the previous drama). Fuyutsuki, Noboru and Sakurai all witness this, and Onizuka takes the 3 expelled students with him and leaves. He takes them to a cafe managed by Ryuji, and asks if they can work there for him. Saejima enters with a suspicious character he found spying in on the shop – Noboru. Noboru asks Onizuka for advice on bullying, and Onizuka promises to help him and become his friend. Later, someone who seems like a staff member with handcuffs, rope and other S&M equipment enters in on Anko and co having fun at karaoke. It’s none other than Onizuka, there to dish out revenge on the girls.
