GTO: Paradise Lost (GTO パラダイス・ロスト GTO Paradaisu Rosuto) is Tohru Fujisawa's latest work and a sequel to his magnum opus: Great Teacher Onizuka. Its publication began in August 2014; since then, fifteen volumes have been published in Weekly Young Magazine and thirteen have been officially translated into English. The total number of volumes planned for the series is unknown.


Great Teacher Onizuka is back, and the next stage for his legend is...prison?! The trouble magnet of a teacher reveals that this stint behind bars is thanks to a certain incident with the class he became assistant homeroom teacher of half a year earlier: Holy Forest Academy's new class for high school-aged celebrities! Does he regret the exploits that landed him in the slammer? Heck, no. In fact, he’s all too happy to calmly tell his fellow prisoners how the whole thing went down—if they’re willing to listen to his story from the very beginning...

  • Paradise Lost is the first in the series to visually depict nudity, albeit with the genitalia censored.
