Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) Anime Opening & Ending Theme Songs With Lyrics

Great Teacher Onizuka, a totally ridiculous yet lovable story about a crazy, over-the-top, good-for-nothing ex-gang leader named Eikichi Onizuka who wanted to become a teacher, is one of my favorite animes of all time. Between Eikichi's idiotic antics and unconventional methods, his students learned not only from books but from life itself. I actually found myself wishing I had a teacher like Onizuka when I was growing up. :)

The TV series has some very good music as well. It had two opening themes and three ending themes. The animation sequence for "Driver's High", the first opening theme, perfectly set the mood for the entire anime, and I love "Last Piece", the first ending theme as well. Take a listen and let me know what you think. :)

GTO Opening 1

"Driver's High" by L'Arc~en~Ciel

adrenaline zutto nagashite
boku no hou ga overheat shisou
bakuhatsu shite hai ni natte mo
kono mama da to waratteru ne kitto

machi o oikoshite kono yo no hate made
bu tobashite shinjuu shiyou saa the o nobashite!

chiheisen ni todoku you ni
genkai made furikitte kure
Woh-oh-oh-oh! Clash! into the rolling morning
Flash! I'm in the coolest driver's high
saikou no finale o! yeah!

GTO Opening 2

"Hitori No Yoru" by Porno Graffitti

Hyakumannin no tame ni utawareta love song nanka ni
Boku wa kantan ni omoi o kasanetari wa shinai
Koi seyo to semeru kono machi no kihon kousou wa
Easy love! Easy come! Easy go!

Souzou shiteita yori mo zutto mirai wa genjitsuteki da ne
Kuruma mo shibaraku sora o hashiru yotei mo nasasou sa
Soshite, kyou mo chikatetsu ni nori
Mukuchi na tanin to machi ni okizari ne

Dakara
Lonely, lonely setsunakute
Kowaresou na yoru ni sae
Lonely, lonely kimi dake wa
Original love o tsuranuite

Lonely, lonely aitakute
Kogoesou na mainichi ni
Kotoba ni dekinai koto wa
Muri ni shinai koto ni shita

Ano hito dake kokoro no seikantai
Wasuretai ne
Love me, love me tsuyoku yowai kokoro
Kiss me, kiss me aseru hitori no yoru

Nobody knows what means love so
Do you know how love song goes on?

GTO Ending 1

"Last Piece" by Kirari

Futari de Tooku e ikou

Kimi to futari nara Norikoe rareru yo
Atarashii ashita Tanoshimitai kara

Hitomi wo hiraite Tobira hiraku
Me no mae ni hirogaru sekai
Soto ni detai oki ni iri no oto wo tsurete
Osanai koro no kankaku Ajiwau

Taiyou no hikari Abiru watashi wa koko ni iru yo
Kuraberu yori Ima no jibun wo taisetsu ni suru

Aitakute demo aenakute
Afureru kimochi tada dakishimete
Hitodoori ooi toori aruite ite mo
Atama ni mawaru anata no egao

GTO Ending 2

"Shizuku" by Miwako Okuda

Subete no hito wo aiseru wake ja nainara, semete aisuru hito o
Uragi razu ni utagawazu ni, semetari nikundari shinai de

Mujaki de irukoto ga, hito o kizutsukete shimau no?
Shizukana jounetsu ga hitomi no oku de sawagi dasu... anata ni meguri aete

Hateshinai toki no naka de, jibun ni nani ga dekiru
Ima wa mada chiisaku demo, kagayaki keseya shinai yo

Kobore souna namida no tsubu, nagasazu mune ni tamete
Isshun o tsuyoku iki yo, ichizuna shizuku ni natte

GTO Ending 3

"Cherished Memories" by Hong Kong Knife

ore-tachi wa ima ga subete ore-tachi wa ima ga subete sa
owaranai yoru ga hajimaru kimete yaru ze konya...
