Great Teacher Onizuka Season 2 Storyline

The main lead of the show is Eikichi Onizuka, a middle school teacher who was an ex-bouzouki and he has no shame in admitting that is a pervert, besides the only reason he joins school is his expectations of getting to see young girls. At the climax of the show, the teacher Eikichi decides to take the blame for stabbing to clear Miyabi Aizawa and Azusa Fuyutsuki confesses her love for Eikichi.

The last time speculations of Season 2 arose was in 2014, but as of now, there has been no new announcement. It’s also worth noting that the last season ended on September 17, 2000, almost twenty years ago. So there is a slim chance of season two happening since there has been a little buzz and most of the fanbase has probably died out.

But there is also the nostalgia factor that will bring big money to the studios, so we can’t for sure count it out. There is more of a chance of the series being rebooted than a new season being released.

Great Teacher Onizuka Cast

Is Great Teacher Onizuka Season 2 RETURNING after 20 years: Release Date & More

If the new season gets announced, there is a slim chance that most of the cast members would be coming back, the show aired 20 years ago and most of the cast members would have aged a lot and the show has a lot of student cast members, who the old actors would not be able to provide voice-over for. Wataru Takagi, who played the protagonist Eikichi Onizaku, is now 54 years old, Junichi Suwabe who voiced Koji Fujiyoshi is now 48 years old, Fujiyoshi was a student, and it would sound weird for a 48-year-old man to play a student. Some cast members like Cho who played principal Hiroshi Uchiyamada might come back, since it is not uncommon for principals to be old. The rest of the characters might get an entirely new set of actors to play the role.

Great Teacher Onizuka Season 2 Release Date

It is quite difficult to predict the date of season 2, and even through our clairvoyance skills, we can’t figure out the time period around when the new season would get released. The best we could say is somewhere after 5 years, since there has been no hint or leaks of the new season. So any sort of new season, or even rebooting the show would take years. So don’t expect anything to come so sooner than that. So, put your bets on 2o25.
