  • Comments: This AMV is meant to show situation in the Holy Forest Akademy (Onizuka's school) from different points of view. And like GTO some may find it's positive ending one-sided, but afterall it shows some Values. I tried to join 2 basic aspects of GTO : intereesting action-comedy and more importantly deeper sometimes psychological tale.

    I think this AMV will be clear to anyone not just GTO fans. At least in majority of frames.

    "Onizuka is coming for you" motif (present in first part and refrain) can be misjudged as random scenes, but they're there on the purpose. I really liked the idea "he's coming for youuuuuu" so even if it's hard I let it stay.

    There arent't much effects, but also GTO doesn't have plenty either. Since I don't know good special effects usage yet I didn't want it to screw whole vid or make contrast with original scenes. I think that Offisping is ideal band for GTO vids

    And as always in my vids - audio is crutial for understanding video. (lyrics below). Nevertheless this time song's last lines weren't as similar in meaning with my idea so I've skipped them. As always I try to be faightful to the song's feeling - not just "word-by-word" lyrics-synch which I find too restricting and not very bright.

    Uchiyamada :
    A school is a place to teach not to play.

    And why not? What's wrong with playing?

    Uchiyamada :
    What's that?

    Hey! When I was in junior high-school I used to play 24h a day. And I was learning plenty.
    (used in ending part)

    Uchiyamada :
    Don't you understand? The entire future of a student depends on the 6 years of junior and senior high-school. Whether he can get into the best university and then into a top company and eventually get the proper promotions depend primarily on this 6 years.

    I don't know - that way of thinking seems pretty old-fashioned. Besides a lot of those big companies are going bankrupt these days. For my information those 6 years of junior-high and high-schoiol are far more important as so-called "golden years".

    Uchiyamada :
    Meaning what?

    Meaning you have to learn to get your priorities straight. Like knowing who your true friends are and realise in ityou can count on them when you need their help.

    " The kids aren't alright" lyrics

    (only used part)

    When we were young, the future was so bright, whoa
    The old neighborhood was so alive, whoa
    And every kid on the whole damn street, whoa
    Was gonna make it big and not be beat

    Now, the neighborhoods cracked and torn, whoa
    The kids are grown up, but their lives are worn, whoa
    How can one little street
    Swallow so many lives

    Chances thrown, nothings free
    Longing for what used to be
    Still, its hard, hard to see
    Fragile lives, shattered dreams

    Jamie had a chance, well, she really did, whoa
    Instead, she dropped out and had a couple of kids, whoa
    Mark still lives at home cause hes got no job, whoa
    He just plays guitar and smokes a lotta pot

    Jay committed suicide, whoa
    Brandon odd and died, whoa
    What the hell is going on
    The cruelest dream, reality

    Chances thrown, nothings free
    Longing for what used to be
    Still, its hard, hard to see
    Fragile lives, shattered dreams
