Manga Review: Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei


Title: Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Author: Kumeta Kouji
Release: Weekly
Status: Ongoing
Genre: Slice of Life, Comedy
Art: A
Originality: S+
Story: B
Characters: S
Humor: S
Action: B

Impression: This is the story of a teacher in despair who has a completely negative outlook on society and frequently tries to kill himself off as he deals with his class full of uniquely eccentric and problematic students. I like the humor of the manga but not so much the anime thanks to Akiyuki Shinbo’s approach to humor which borders the lines of freakiness and the abstract. There’s a lot of satire and political humor in there that has me laughing most of the time but reading the manga is ridiculously tiring. The jokes run a risk of hit and miss reactions since some of the jokes will seem repetitive even if they’re about different things. I’d suggest a look at this for those who have had enough with manga that goes for the cheap laughs.
