Bento Box: Old Teachers, New Features and Hairy Creatures
Hot for Teacher - Fans of everyone's favorite sleazeball teacher rejoice! Live-action Great Teacher Onizuka is back with a brand new two-hour special due to air on April 2nd. Exile pop star Akira is set to reprise the role of the titular Onizuka, a man with a criminal past who spends his days as a perverted, but dedicated high school teacher. The two-hour show will take place at the graduation of Onizuka's class and deal with the students worries about the future, namely college (and all the stress and beer funneling that goes with it). Not only will Akira star in the highly anticipated adaptation, but Exile will also perform the show's theme song “24karats Tribe of Gold”. This is the first follow-up to the eleven episode series that ran in September of last year. If you've read the tremendously popular manga or seen the anime, you know that viewers are in store for a GTO-style slightly creepy, but plenty hilarious treat.
