Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei the Anime

This is the kind of series that you need to watch with your hand on the pause button, all the screen shots below are from the first 3 minutes of the anime. For a description of the storyline check out my post the other day on the manga scanlation. I won’t add to the plot description beyond that, just keep that remote handy because once they get into class there are a lot of random jokes written on the black board and their’s no way to read them if it’s not paused. I really like the series alot the manga is a little easier to mange because you can read at your pace but the stuff on the board is all new to the anime. I love all the little touches, the director’s head in place of panty shots and as the school clock, the opening cast credits where they all appear as themselves. A black and white clip to start it all off, with Otonashi Meru the abusive text mail girl dangling them all from a cell phone strap. Give this anime a try if you looking for something smart and funny.

At AniDB this is the 3 highest rated anime of all time not that it means much beyond the fact that the people who have taken the time to try this anime have really loved it.

1. Byousoku 5 Centimeter Movie
2. Death Note TV Series
3. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei TV Series

It's a show that really deserves more people watching. The first seven of the 12 episode series has been fan subbed and can be downloaded here. You can download the 1st opening theme song "Hito toshite Jiku ga Bureteiru" sung by Kenji Ohtsuki featuring Ai Nonaka, Marina Inoue, Yu Kobayashi, Miyuki Sawashiro & Ryoko Shintani here.
