About the Author

Born in 1967, Tohru Fujisawa is a veteran Japanese comic artist and multimillion unit seller. Best known globally for his international sensation Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO), Fujisawa was the 22nd Kodansha Comic Award Winner in 1998 for his work on the hit series. The GTO property would go on to inspire two animated TV series and an internationally distributed live action TV series by the same name. Since GTO Fujisawa has gone on to pen thirteen more comic series, with four of those properties landing on American shores. Fujisawa continues to be one of the most beloved manga artists of this generation.

Reviews

"As a character explicitly points out, it's painfully evident that parental selfishness has given [these teens] severe reason to distrust adults and that they're not about to give Onizuka a second chance if he lets them down. As a result, the manga is dealing with the same Onizuka, but watching him walk a much narrower tight rope... It's intriguing to consider how the manga might react to the new twist in its careful balance act and how 14 Days might consequently develop in subtly different ways than the original." --Ain't

"I have never read a GTO comic before this, so the prospect of reading what amounts to a spin-off was a bit intimidating. Luckily the premise is pretty simple... I liken this book to Columbo. Anyone who has ever watched a Columbo episode knows that Columbo is going to solve the case. The real pleasure comes from seeing how the bumbling detective puts it all together... The figures are strong and confident, and the backgrounds are stunning." --Stumptown Trade Review

"I loved it... The most surprising thing about 14 Days in Shonan is its ability to address serious social problems without devolving into an Afterschool Special. The hand-to-hand combat and barrage of condom jokes helps mitigate against didacticism, to be sure, but Fujisawa is skillful enough to make the students' personal troubles a meaningful--and sometimes moving--part of the story, inspiring Onizuka to new heights of creativity (and silliness) in his efforts to reach them. Highly recommended." --The Manga Critic
