Plot Synopsis: Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei revolves around a very pessimistic high school teacher named Nozomu Itoshiki who, at the very beginning of the series, tries to hang himself on a sakura tree. He is saved by an extremely optimistic student known only as Kafuka Fuura (though in her effort to save his life, she almost kills him). She explains to him that it is simply unimaginable that he would hang himself on such a nice day, especially in front of such beautiful trees. She decides to nickname Nozomu "Pink Supervisor" (桃色係長 Momoiro Kakarichō?), and offers to pay him fifty yen to call him by that nickname. After having enough of the strange Kafuka, Nozomu bolts to the school and starts his homeroom class, but the attempt to escape was in vain as he finds that she is one of his students. Not only that, but Kafuka is just the tip of the iceberg: each and every student in his class represents a new personality quirk or bizarre obsession, posing challenges that he must overcome in spite of himself.
The characters don't really develop at all but they're really interesting to watch. The point of the characters are to explore all the different things about society that are wrong and as a result, watching the characters interact is clearly one of the highlights.
Character designs are strange but the artistic style of the series as a whole is impressive and unique.
The soundtrack was a parody on other music, which for a parody show is rather appropriate. As well as this the voice acting was top notch as bringing out the bizzare cast of characters was important for the success of this series.
Please give me feedback on the video, and sub is you do like as I want to do more.
