Great Teacher Onizuka is based on Tooru Fujisawa’s manga of the same name. The show, which began airing in June 1999, was helmed by Noriyuki Abe (Black Butler: Book of Murder, Bleach) at Studio Pierrot. Masashi Sogo (Bleach, Fairy Tail) wrote the show’s scripts, while Koichi Usami (Welcome to Lodoss Island!) provided character designs.

Crunchyroll describes the show as:

Meet Eikichi Onizuka, a 22-year-old ex-biker and college karate champ. He’s crude, foul-mouthed, and has a hair-trigger temper. His goal: to be the greatest high school teacher in the world! Unfortunately, the only teaching job available is at Holy Forest Academy (no certification required). There he uses his street smarts to deal with colleagues and students alike.
