Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei


Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei (さよなら絶望先生, “Goodbye, Teacher Despair”) is a Japanese manga by Kōji Kumeta, serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine. It is a comedy about a teacher who takes all aspects of life, word, and culture in the most negative light possible. In 2007, the manga received the 31st Kodansha Manga Award in the shōnen category. Shaft produced three anime television series and two sets of three original video animation episodes between 2007 and 2012. This is a slice-of-life series and it is based entirely around hilarious character shenanigans, though if you ever see characters like this in your life, I’d be a little worried. Still, there are a few reoccurring themes revolving around anime and otaku snark and satire of Japanese lifestyle, culture, politics, media, literature, etc. They also frequently make fun of themselves, which is incredibly amusing. It’s all amazingly well done and highly entertaining, I assure you. A bit of warning through, if you try and pause to read every single thing written in the background for scenes, you will turn 20 minute episodes into 40 minute episodes.
