You most definitely may be right on me getting it backwards. I did not read the manga.

I was just comparing to the original series. A series I liked.

On that light; my comments remain the same.

In the original Onizuka was just a guy (albeit an impressive guy in some circles ie: impressive figure for motorbike gangs/youths because of his background - but thats about it. for rest of the world he is an underdog. ...

Hey EriKira,

I just found this and not sure if it will suit your tastes (from what I understand a knowledge of rpg games on ps2 or equivalent was required, especially dragonquest series) but I laughed a lot in first episode so I recommend you to check out Yuusha Yoshihiko to Maou no Shiro.

You can check out d-addicts discussion forums about shimokita if you are really interested. I am sure people who liked the series made some alternative suggestions. And there is always google.

To be honest I do not even remember how I found the Shimokita so can't help you more than this.
