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 surfer paradise called Shonan. Unfortunately with child neglect and abuse becoming a global phemen, the self-proclaimed GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) quickly finds himself back in the saddle for what he hopes will be a painless two-week long field trip with some teens in need.
