One of the best shows out there. Not only does it have my favorite animation, but it also includes one of the best character lineups, plots, good humor, and the best OP and Ending songs like……..ever. (Yes I have a top ten OP/ED and I will put them up eventually, I grouped every single one from this show as one, and they are high on the list). So then, here is my review of
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
What’s it about? A depressed person, Nomozu Itoshiki, is trying to hang himself when along comes this overly optomistic girl, Kafuka, who eventually stops him from doing so, and decides to call him “Pink Supervisor”, because the trees around him were pink, and pays him 50 yen for the rights to call him such. She goes to school, and soon there after it is revealed that Itoshiki is the homeroom teacher of her class, which turns out to have only one normal girl in it. Hilarity ensues, as the show pretty much points out the obvious things around us that we don’t notice, and makes fun of them using satire, which I love. Oh, and Itoshiki always falls into despair over any subject brought up.
- Animation = Probably the best I’ve seen. Definatly the most artistic. I love it. Shaft did a great job with this one.
- Characters = Every character has something unique about them. Even the “normal girl” is unique…..because she’s….well…..normal. My favorite character is probably Matoi, who stalks Itoshiki because she’s in love with him.
- Humor = Was excellent. This show points out things that you don’t really notice around everyday life, and makes them funny.
- It’s awesome.
- Sometimes they put up a million words and give you no time to read them. These are usually examples to illustrate someones point. I really had to stretch for that one.
- The show turned very lovey-dovey halfway through, and the comedy slowly was lessened until it could barely be considered a comedy, except this never actually happened and I made this whole sentence up.
Watch this show. If you don’t watch it, you have no soul…..and what’s worse, you suck. Therfore, since this show (both seasons and the OVAs) was fucking great, Eye hereby give it a
FINAL GRADE = 5^^
