Teacher Onizuka volume 4
Lesson #29 - To the PE teacher, there's someone stronger than
(Hajime) Fukorada, in a swimming trunk, said to (Eikichi)
Onizuka that teachers should become an example to the students.
But Onizuka has the guts to write a fake set of eyes, just
to sleep at the teacher's meeting, a trick that even a primary
school student won't use. He then challenged Onizuka to a
swimming race, and if Fukorada wins, Onizuka must not repeat
such a stupid trick again. He commented, even that Onizuka
was the strongest at Eurasia University, but outside the university,
there are many people who are more powerful than him, like
himself, who come from the Nippori Sport University.
THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACHER
Hajime Fukorada -- Single -- 32 years old
Hobby: Body training
Fave food: Anything good for the body.
Abilities: Good at sports
Activities on free time: Running, exercise and gymnastic.
He turned his head to see Onizuka is eating. Enraged, he
lashed at Onizuka, saying that eating 30 minutes before swimming
is dangerous, and if the students followed his steps, it could
be fatal. Onizuka replied that he is hungry and haven't eaten
since morning, and offer no knowledge about his claims. Fukorada
then asked him to change, puzzling Onizuka who then asked
Fukorada why. Hearing that, Fukorada lashed at him for ignoring
him all the time.
At the class, (Saeko) Iijima asked (Taadaki) Kusano, (Kouji)
Fujiyoshi and (Kunio) Murai what have happened until they
could be on a good terms with Onizuka, and she got no reaction.
Iijima then lashed at Murai, for being so quiet, and asked
him to answer. Murai then asked her why they couldn’t
be friends with Onizuka, and telling her to ignore them, much
to (Miyabi) Aizawa shock. He then continued, that just like
(Yoshito) Kikuchi, they wanted to pull out from the effort
to bully teachers again. Murai then asked, whether they think
that bullying Onizuka is a waste of time, because the effect
on Onizuka is minimal, outraging them. Fujiyoushi added that
playing with him is more fun than bullying them, and Iijima
started to call them traitors.
Suddenly, one of the students run into the class and told
Murai that Onizuka and Fukorada will have a swimming contest
at the school pool, much to his delight. Murai and his gang
then started to go to the pool, ignoring the screaming Iijima
who wanted them to stop. Iijima then reminded Murai that they
have never trusted a teacher before, but Murai replied, if
Iijima wanted to see Onizuka fired, Iijima and the other girl
teams like Aizawa and (Anko) Uehara have to do it themselves,
but Murai reminded that they will surely lose, as Onizuka
seems to have a strong guardian angel protecting him. Murai
and his gang laughed as they leave for the pool.
Aizawa is seething by now, as the anxious Iijima commented
that if Murai’ gang defected to Onizuka’ side,
half of the class is on his hands. The rest of the class stared
at Aizawa as she screamed that even that Murai is on Onizuka
side now, she will make Onizuka knows her wrath for pissing
The school pool is now filled with students who wanted to
see the contest. Fukorada is now warming up, but had overdone
it, and the female students started to puke. Meanwhile Murai
have opened a betting center manned by Kusano, and most of
the students are betting for a Fukorada win. Murai commented
that if Onizuka lose, they would lose big. Suddenly Fujiyoushi
wondered where Onizuka is, just to see that Onizuka is also
warming up, using synchronized swimming methods, much to Fukorada'
The referee then asked both of them to get prepared for the
race proper. Suddenly Onizuka sees a book (the betting records)
and asked Murai what they have done. He then moved to them,
and asked how much debts they are in, and Murai replied that
they have a lot of it, as most of them betting for Fukorada.
Suddenly, Onizuka coughed up 3000 yen, gave it to them and
declared that he is betting for his own win.
At the starting point, Fukorada teased Onizuka for not wearing
a swimming trunk, as the normal short pant he used will only
hinder him, as Onizuka is silent while cleaning his nose with
his fingers. The race then started, and Fukorada is swimming
furiously, thinking that karate skill is useless compared
to the power of human bodies, and how he hated Onizuka who
spent 4 years at university (webmaster note: I don't know
if it was a misprint, but 4 years at a university is good,
even in here it's normal for someone to take 4 years to graduate),
and he will change Onizuka attitude. He then turned at the
halfway mark; thinking that a victory is certain, just to
see that Onizuka is getting out of the pool already. Fukorada
is astonished, asking how he can finish ahead of him, and
started to accuse Onizuka of cheating.
Suddenly, one of the students told him that Onizuka have
never emerged from under the water from the start to the finish,
and that was permitted under the rules (webmaster note: I
don't know if this is right or not, as I don't know the rules
of swimming). Fukorada is stunned, screaming that it's impossible
for a human to swim competitively underwater all the way of
the 50 meters race (webmaster note: Probably the pool is not
an Olympic-sized pool, as Fukorada is obviously make the turn-around
maneuver in an earlier panel). He started to accuse Onizuka
of using stimulant, and he went off to drink some stimulants
of his own. As Onizuka, Murai, Kusano and Fujiyoushi are counting
their profits, Fukorada challenged Onizuka for a rematch,
but still end up on the losing side despite after using stimulants,
while a female student was watching Onizuka silently........
