EXILE's AKIRA to reprise his role as Great Teacher Onizuka

1: 禿の月φ ★ 2014/03/17(月) 00:24:05.90 ID:???0
It was revealed on the 17th that EXILE's AKIRA will be returning to play the lead in the new GTO drama which will begin in July, Tuesdays at 10 pm.

GTO is a popular manga by Tooru Fujisawa which is about how ex-yankee-turned-teacher Eikichi Onizuka solves the troubles and problems of his students and conducts classes in a very unorthodox manner. It was first adapted into live action in 1998 with Takashi Sorimachi as Onizuka. AKIRA was cast for the remake in 2012, and special dramas also followed afterwards. The drama that will start in July will be set in Shonan, as Eikichi Onizuka will be returning to his mother school.

This news was announced in Vol. 17 of Shuukan Young Magazine. It was also announced that Fujisawa's new manga series GTO Paradise Lost will begin on April 14, in Vol. 20.

Enough already

I don't think I'll watch this
7: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:26:34.22 ID:VoLzOzpA0
Drama-wise, Sorimachi's version was better
but this guy looks more like the original drawing w

I'm fine with him being monotonous, but the way he says "~Dahh?" is kinda awkward
12: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:31:20.44 ID:pRgKTt2O0
Nothing new for dramas nowadays, huh?
13: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:31:34.09 ID:ecbg671z0
I won't approve of any other GTO outside of the Sorimachi
15: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:31:45.09 ID:dzXcpeNQ0
教師ものでも数字取れないだろ 白い巨頭でも流してれば良いんだ
Feels like Fuji's also just feeding off their past legacy.
I don't think these teacher stories will be able to pull in the ratings. They'd be better off if they just showed reruns of Shiroi Kyotou instead.

17: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:31:52.32 ID:hsy8wPtB0
普段はボケボケのアホでいざという時にガツンとパワー こいつはなんか普段からマジメ
Sorimachi was perfect for the image of the manga.
A normally dumb and stupid guy who'd get all serious when the need arises. This guy seems serious all the time.

18: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:31:53.41 ID:EXbTa/jC0
I've grown tired of this.
It's a drama where the main lead AKIRA gets to practice his acting skills.

28: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:37:01.73 ID:cQwUjcxL0
Sorimachi's image is too strong, I don't feel like watching this
30: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:37:56.58 ID:Q/wsN/i00
I didn't watch the previous one too, but please give us a break.
32: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:39:33.84 ID:oKW39qLp0
Same as Tsuyoshi Doumoto's Kindaichi,
I can't think of anyone else playing GTO.

Wow, they're still doing this despite getting only half of what Sorimachi's GTO got, and the specials they had afterwards were horrible?

AKIRA GTO's specials after the series

12/10/02 (Tuesday) 11.8% 21:00-23:24

And starting next month, TBS will also be having a serial drama on Tuesdays at 10pm, so together with NHK's drama, there will be 3 dramas running during the same time slot.

I never thought Sorimachi's version was good,
but this was worse, yet they're still having a sequel, huh

40: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:44:57.60 ID:gvzJiWl40

反町版バケモンやなw 25%切ったのが1話だけとか
Sorimachi's version was a beast w
Only 1 episode that went below 25%?
46: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:51:07.69 ID:rUCdxodQ0
Even the cast was amazing
50: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:52:33.03 ID:gvzJiWl40
Because the 1998 version had Nanako Matsushima together scriptwriter Yukawa-san whom she's always been compatible with

43: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:49:21.18 ID:Lw5Xkz460
Eternal Akanishi was originally tipped to do this, right?
48: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:52:00.61 ID:lFk+IaRV0
赤西だと視聴率そこそこ良くてもシリーズ1できちんと終わってそうだなw 業界の押しがなさそうだから それでよかったのに
If it was Akanishi, I think it would have ended in just one season even if it did get decent ratings. It doesn't seem like the industry would've pushed for him further. That would have been good, though.

51: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:52:54.86 ID:09eWmXb30
Why do this despite the bad ratings?
52: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:53:19.47 ID:iFJcqeAY0
フジテレビってやたら続編作ってるけどどうなんだろ? アメリカだと視聴率取れる限り続けるのがデフォだから理にかなってるとは思うけど
クライムサスペンスじゃなくてこの手のドラマ引っ張るのってどうなの? 金八は例外。
I have this image that Fuji TV does a lot of sequels, but how is it really? In America, I know that they keep on doing series after series of the show by default as long as it gets the ratings, but what can you say about trying to extend something like this, and not those crime and suspense shows?
Kinpachi is a special case, though. 

56: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:56:15.76 ID:vc/LK1jX0
フジテレビって焼き直しばかりで もうまともな企画を通せるプロデューサーや脚本家いないのかね
Fuji TV just keeps on making rehashes. Don't they have anymore producers or scriptwriters who can come up with a decent idea?
This situation is pretty similar to how NTV was flying low at one point.

59: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 00:58:50.49 ID:b3TQfQDR0
Sorimachi and Norika Fujiwara's movie flopped, and that's why they didn't make another Sorimachi version again, right?
115: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:40:47.35 ID:09eWmXb30
第2シリーズ決まってたらしいけど 反町が稲森いずみと二股してるみたいな記事文春がのせて研音がきれて おじゃんになったんじゃないっけ?
I heard that a 2nd season was in the works, but there was a report made by Bunshun that Sorimachi and Izumi Inamori were having an affair which eventually led them back to the drawing board, right?

68: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:07:44.77 ID:5lk0NwYIO
I'll watch every week if they did a version with Tutorial's Tokui

78: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:18:56.80 ID:J2IAsg9v0
毎回がエロ回で 夕方再放送が禁止されるな
Every week will be an ero episode, and it will be banned from evening re-runs

81: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:20:19.73 ID:Q8si3iwy0
Has Fuji given up on dramas?
I don't get it.

91: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:26:54.92 ID:pORZbD/h0
Sorimachi, Akira Nakao, and the still unpopular Ogurish, I can fly, Fujiki, Burusera-san and Rape-san.
The cast really was amazing.

97: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:32:35.80 ID:Xt6XfaKh0
Don't forget Hiroshi Tamaki and Hidenori Tokuyama
109: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:36:41.95 ID:pORZbD/h0
あ~玉木ん忘れてた。 池内もインパクトあったなぁ 当時の生徒役の明暗っぷりは異常w
Ahh, I forgot about Tamaki. Ikeuchi also had a pretty strong impact. And it's really astounding how much the careers of those students back then went separate ways. w

AKIRAのGTOと反町GTO  あずさ役が月とスッポン AKIRAのあずさ役はファンの人ごめん 

Won't they be turning Bokura no Yuuki Miman City into DVD?

When comparing AKIRA's GTO and Sorimachi's GTO, I can't help but say that the girl who played Azusa in both are like heaven and hell. Sorry to the fans of the one who played Azusa in AKIRA's GTO. She just looks like a student.


窪塚もメンヘラチックなのも 当時天パなイケメンって衝撃的だった 

Never would I have thought that Shun Oguri, the guy who was bullied there would go on to marry Yu Yamada, and that he would have numerous escapades with different girls along the way.

Also Kubozuka's crazy tendencies. It was really quite a shock to see such a naturally curly ikemen like him back then.

Oh yeah, Hidenori Tokuyama played a high school student in his 30s on Fuji TV's Yamada-kun to 7-nin no majo de and it didn't look awkward at all wwwwww
So won't he be able to appear in AKIRA's GTO? As a student.
119: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:43:27.65 ID:TZwc1CP80
徳山違和感あったよ イケメンだけどおっさんだった 30すぎの高校生はやめた方がいい
Tokuyama looked unnatural there. He's an ikemen, but still looked old. They shouldn't be making 30-year-olds play high school students.

106: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:35:24.37 ID:l6pqHrGZ0

Fuji TVs dramas for July
Wakamonotachi remake

They're way out of line wwwwwwwwwww

108: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:36:02.04 ID:0BMoqysT0
Could it be that they can only cast this guy because Fuji's usual go-to cast went on to other networks?
110: 名無しさん@恐縮です 2014/03/17(月) 01:39:39.61 ID:zh3Ux9Oq0
反町版のが好きだけど、この人もアツくて意外と良かったよ 本気泣きとかしてたし
しかしこの人ってエグザイルでもその他踊り子Aって感じで人気ナイの? 歌番組見てても探すの困難なんだが
I liked the Sorimachi version better, but this guy's version is very passionate and surprisingly good too.
He even cried seriously. But isn't this guy popular, and he's just regarded as "backup dancer A" in EXILE? I'm still having trouble looking for him when EXILE are on music programs.
