The characters in this anime are all really unique, we've seen Kafuka who is really positive, Itoshiki who is really negative, The girl who always has to be perfect, a stalker girl, Komori the hikikomori. I really want to find out the uniqueness of the girl with bandages

My guess is that she'll be explained in the next episode, just based on what I've seen in the manga.

If you don't mind spoilers, the Wikipedia article has a good run-down on the class. And what a class...

LOL net idol... This is such a funny series. Thanks for the link, and thanks for the link to the comic - I hadn't seen that one.

Anyone know the name of the sad piano piece that plays at various points during the show? I need that song more than anything.

This episode was more class centric than zetsubo-sensei centric. It's pretty interesting how it's going, an over problematic class and a pessimistic teacher that dosent help at all. I thought one of the best parts was the cake splitting part and how she calculated what arc to cut the cake in.

4 parts... 72 degrees
5 parts... 60 degrees
6 parts... 51.428571428 degrees!!!!!!! Heck cares, lets have a cake milkshake XD

Once again i'll say it...

We have no idea. The soundtrack for this series has not been released yet -- we don't even have a date for its release yet.

The character description that really cracked me up was

Spoiler for ep3 or later:

I just hope we get to see all these students in 12 episodes - not sure how likely that is, given there are nine tankōbon out as of last week.

The literary allusions are great - let's see, so far we've had Stendhal, Kafka, Nietzsche and Dazai Osamu (whom I'd never heard of before, but now want to read). I'm also loving the "historic cinema" visual effects, although I suspect I'm missing lots of references due to not having seen much classic Japanese film. It could easily have ended up seeming forced, but IMO they've got the balance spot on - it doesn't feel at all jarring for Itoshiki to turn up to class in traditional dress, while the kids tote cellphones and date boys in Konata T-shirts (then again, I suppose the figure of the tormented intellectual is somehow timeless).

Speaking of cultural references, a big 乙 to a.f.k. for translating the 2ch rants in the OP!

Osamu Dazai wrote The Setting Sun and No Longer Human. Although The Setting Sun ended in a redemptive fashion, his novels were full of the desolation and emptiness he felt throughout his life. He died in a very colorful fashion after a few unsuccessful tries: he finally killed himself.

Let me add that Dazai is worthy of mention because his attempts at death were as comical as Itoshiki's attempts to kill himself. It took him five tries, if I remember correctly.

Now that people pointed out a lot of reference, I'd like to ask: I've heard there's some reference to other anime as well, most noticeable is the Honey and Clover book that the sensei was reading (I missed that too T_T), so what are the referential details? I've watched quite a bunch of anime, but I'm just slow...Thanks in advance!

Ah, if I remember correctly there was a drawing among the always-changing sketches on the board. One of them was a picture of Jeremiah, known to be Orange in Code Geass, and beside this sketch was a funny statement. Just look for it, I don't remember exactly the time it happened. ^_^

This series tends to lend itself better to static avas than ani-avas for me.

Static:


Animated:

The last one is similar to Simon's avatar, so it probably shouldn't be used right now.

(Really looking forward to the next episode. @_@)

Thank you. One of the best things about this series is how *stylish* it is. It's not really fancy or glossy like other series I can think of, but it doesn't need it - it's got its own artsy charm.

This series is absolute gold, it's pushed out Lucky Star quite easily, to my surprise.

I died a little bit inside when I read that it was only supposed to be 12 episodes. Here's to hoping for a second season.

To those who read the manga(I'm planning to, but I haven't gotten around to it), does it revolve more around Itoshiki/Kafuka, like in episode 1, or the class in general, like in episode 2?
