Synopsis:

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

Golden Boy and GTO share a common bond in their two protagonists. Both exist outside of society's norms, and deviate significantly from what is considered "acceptable" behavior. However, because of this rejection of common societal values, both become unmistakeably genuine and loveable anti-heroes that emphasize the importance of living life on your own terms - not on someone else's.

baley7

Both anime feature an exteriorly silly protagonists that do not behave as society would expect of them and completely out of tune with the ambient they work in. Both of them are funny, genius (not always though) in their behaviour and original.

Junk Boy

Junk Boy
  • OVA (1 ep x 44 min)
  • 1987

Ryouhei Yamazaki thinks he's the master with women, and finds himself living it up in the job of his dreams: working odd jobs for Potato Boy, a men's magazine. He ends up helping with all aspects of the company, including pictorial selection, photoshoots, journalism, or wherever his manhood takes him. If that wasn't hard enough, after a wild night of "journalism", his hopes and dreams are shattered by one woman! Now he must prove himself, his member, and especially his libido in order to regain his ego.

The sort of humor used in both is really similar. It mainly includes facial expressions and mainly has mature humor and subjects. Though wher eyou will see actual nudity in Junk boy, you will not see any in Great Teacher Onizuka. The main plot lines are the same too. A person inadept at a certain job seems to be quite god at it in his own way.
chii

Both shows are about men who love the ladies. They revolve around the males job and females that surround them. GTO is more tonned down "sexy" wise since it is a school setting where Junk Boy goes all out but if you liked the male lead in either show check out the other one.

Kodocha and GTO are both really funny school kids genre animes. While I think Sana-chan may have been a funnier and spunkier (is that a word? =p) main character than Onizuka, Onizuka is an awesome teacher. Really, who wouldn't want him as their homeroom teacher? =)
SlinkyABC

Both Great Teacher Onizuka and Kodomo no Omocha primarily take place in a school setting. While many anime series also take place in school settings, these two stand out in my mind because they're very different from the rest, though for different reasons. Both series have a heavy comedic influence while simultaneously having serious overtones that become more prominent as the series progresses. You won't find much similarity between Sana and Eikichi, and the plots of the two series aren't similar either, but there is enough in common for me to reverse recommend them.

If you can appreciate the intense story surrounded by a high dosage of comedy in one series, you might find yourself drawn to the other one.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

Its not quite the same settin, nor feeling, but I think these series have something in common which would do that you like both. It's how they both (patially) describe japaneese school and everyday life, with a storyline with romance and a large dose of humor.

erede007

Both animes have a similar school life feel to them with humorous and sometimes ridiculous occurences happening to the group of main characters. The episodic style is also a common theme between both of these two fantastic anime. GTO's humor is slightly more vulgar in its nature, but not ridiculously so.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Life is simply not worth living for down and out school teacher Itoshiki Nozomu. He has no hope of progress, no prospect of promotion, no chance at happiness… he is in despair! Even his name spells 'zetsubou' – 'despair', when compressed. But when the time comes to end it all, Itoshiki's attempted suicide on the first day of the new school year is foiled by relentlessly positive Fuura Kafuka. This saves Itoshiki long enough to meet his new class, and the quirky range of students under his care. Will Itoshiki Nozomu depress his students with his anguish? Or will Fuura show Zetsubou-sensei the joys of life and hope?

PockyBebop

The main protagonists of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and Great Teacher Onizuka are teachers who are both a little out of the ordinary and a little insane. If you like your anime teachers to have their own morals and slightly have a funny side as well, then check out either of these.

xxSilencexx

If you like Great Teacher Onizuka you will probably like Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei. Eventhough the ideas and plots vary they are relatable, both are teachers who unorthodox and highly irregular teaching method earn them notice through out their class. However GTO is a feel-good anime whereas Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei is not... But the teacher both have a habit of exaggerating everything Onizuka more positevly though.
