In the fifth volume of 14 Days in Shonan, Eikichi Onizuka the Great Teacher has a very unique assignment to take on. Normally he spends most of his time teaching teens life lessons. He uses the school of hard knocks technique to open people’s hearts. However in this situation the GTO must make an effort to reunite a child with his mother. He must also teach the child that sometimes choosing family is not the right solution.

Everyone would like to have a happy household. Being able to sit by the dinner table to discuss the day’s highlights is an ideal that is not reality for millions across the globe. And in the case of the teens at the White Swan such realities are generally fictitious because of a variety of reasons. That does not excuse anyone involved from wishing for such a life, but changing the hearts of adults often means changing their lives at their core. Words or fisticuffs will not be enough.

So Seiya, a young man, who appears to be on the way to a pleasant self-reliant life, turns to violence to try to get his mother and family life back. But what happens when your very own mother is willing to take a knife at you? Well this is Seiya’s reality. And this is one lesson Onizuka will hate to have taught.

Then the spotlight turns to Onizuka’s employer, Great Vice-Principal Uchiyamada. He’s also in Shonan and on the hunt for Onizuka. But out of his element and turf, this educator is now caught up in a wild ride through the Tokyo suburbs.

This time round the GTO has a special case. He’s got a good kid to look after. Seiya has his head on straight despite having a troubled home. And if there is anything the teen struggles with it possibly is how badly he wants to fix his family. 

Like many single-parent children, Seiya has an attachment to the lone parent that has been around. And even though this person has neglected him enough that he is now in child protection, Seiya’s willing to risk his future and maybe his freedom to make things work out for his small family. If that means taking arms, then so be it! 

But the GTO is not going to let him off easily. You cannot pack heat without getting burned in his town! So Onizuka is going to show him what it means to shot someone. He’s gonna let him experience being hunted down. The school of hard knocks is back in session!
Book 2
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.
Book 1
After guiding the infamous Tokyo Kissho Academy through a crash-course of his unique brand of life-lessons, a battered and bruised Eikichi Onizuka takes a well-deserved trip to his hometown of sorts, a typically quiet surfers paradise called Shonan. Unfortunately, with child neglect and abuse becoming a global phenomenon the self-proclaimed GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) quickly finds himself back in the saddle for what he hopes is a painless two-week long field trip with some teens in need. And while Onizuka’s curriculum may not rely on the reading, writing and arithmetic that is common in most classrooms, he has more than a few good lessons in personal development, fisticuffs and fun to teach a new generation of trouble teens.
