The drama series "GTO" (Kantere/Fuji TV), starring Sorimachi, aired from July to September 1998, about Eikichi Onizuka, a teacher and the legendary head of a motorcycle gang, who commits outrageous acts against his students. A school drama where students come face-to-face with school problems. Based on Toru Fujisawa's manga of the same name (Kodansha), the live-action version stars Sorimachi and Matsushima as the heroine.The average audience rating for all 12 episodes (according to households and Video Research) was 28.5% in the Kanto region (the final episode 35.7%) and recorded a high audience rating. The theme song, ``POISON~I can't even say what I want to say~'', the theme song written and sung by Sorimachi, was also a big hit.

In "GTO Revival," which is being revived as a new special drama for the first time in about 26 years, Onizuka takes a new job as a teacher at Sotoku Gakuin High School, a private school full of problems, and gives Onizuka's passionate lessons to troubled students.

Azusa Fuyutsuki, played by Matsushima, changes her job from a teacher to a flight attendant (CA) at the end of "GTO." He continues to work as a CA in ``GTO Revival'', and his uniform appearance ``26 years later'' was also revealed. Attention is also focused on what kind of relationship Onizuka and Fuyutsuki have after 26 years.

Mr. Matsushima said, ``I was surprised when I heard that GTO would be revived for the first time in 26 years.The Onizuka spirit has elements that resonate well even in today's times, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Onizuka's depth will come out as he gets older.'' That's why I decided to appear in ``GTO Revival''.''

``On the set, there were a lot of co-stars that I hadn't seen in a long time since 1998, so it really felt like a reunion.It's been 26 years since Azusa Fuyutsuki...It's been a long time since I met Onizuka. I hope that the relationship between them was expressed well."
