Synopsis

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...

Trivia

  • Despite being set two years after the events of Great Teacher Onizuka, Paradise Lost depicts contemporary fashion trends, pop culture, and technological advancements rather than those of the early 2000s.
  • Unlike Great Teacher Onizuka and GTO: 14 Days in Shonan, Paradise Lost's chapter segments are not designated as lessons.
  • Paradise Lost is the first in the series to visually depict nudity, albeit with the genitalia censored.
