So I just started getting into JDrama, my first series was GTO 2012 and I loved it. Followed by "Rich Man, Poor Woman", "Samurai High School" & Doku (Poison). I started to watch Gokusen and I am really disappointed now that GTO 2012 seems to have copied a A LOT from this series.

I haven't watched GTO 2012 (which is the remake of the original GTO), but I did watch the original GTO Live-Action along time ago, which came out in 1998, well before Gokusen, the live-action series came out (which was 2002). And if u want to go back further, the manga of GTO came out in 1997 while Gokusen the manga came out in 2000.

So it's actually Gokusen that's a knock off of GTO. But in any case, I still love the anime series, the manga series and the Live Action series of them both.

i haven't watched the original GTO or read the manga, i knew the manga came out first but from what i could tell by briefly looking at the scans, GTO 2012 looked very different from the original GTO (classroom story wise) and resembled more towards Gokusen. now if you are telling me you saw Gokusen and also read GTO, then that's a different story.

Yes, GTO (the first one) came first way before Gokusen. But that kind of style when they each turn to tackle one student at a time is not very new in jdrama in which GTO and Gokusen have great similarities with.

Teacher's back stories.
Rebel students.
They have a leader sort of in the classroom.

But don't worry about that, I think both of them were good. And since GTO 2012 is the most recent, it gives off the recent type of students in Japan maybe. And they're quite alarming. Or I don't know, I haven't seen the first GTO.
