Kanchirou will star as a young Eikichi Onizuka, while Daichi Kaneko stars as a young Ryuji Danma.
In the manga, Onizuka and Ryuji are known as the infamous Oni-Baku duo. They are known for being good in fights and ride their bikes really fast. However, it seems that the duo really want to leave their gang for a very special reason… to lose their virginity! Yeah, sounds like what Onizuka would do…
