I don't remember any avas similar to these made, let me know if I'm wrong. One Abiru, two Meru, and one static Kaere.



I'm not big on requests, but making animated avas is fun. XD

So, I just remembered that Ai Nonaka (Kafuka's VA) was Akira-sama's VA in Lucky Star DS game.

doesn't go anywhere

correct link is -

Ep 4

Not much to add to what everyone else has already said except the obvious: this... show... is... awesome!

I find Goto Yuko's voice incredibly alluring. As far as talent is concerned, I could probably name a number of seiyuu that are better than her, but I have to say that, at the moment, her voice is the one I find most moe. But it looks like her character here isn't going to get all too much time in the spotlight from here on in, since she is a bit of a once-and-done gag character.

I wouldn't say that. Some of the choices of licensing in recent years have been somewhat bizarre and there are a number of titles that I've thought, flat out, would never be licensed, which I've turned out to be wrong on. I think it's starting to get harder and harder to predict which titles will and won't be licensed. But I doubt a bit of BDSM will do all too much to deter companies... particularly if this anime does well on the fansub route.

Probability of any of Kohji Kumeta's works being licensed is 0, nil, zero, name it the way you want - they simply can't be translated! Even afk version is losing at least 50% of all the meanings and there's nothing anyone can do about it. It's just their nature, with constant word-plays and heavy culture referenses in every phrase.

Saying that, a lot of Shinbo's work end up licensed. Though i believe some people were talking about the manga.

The direct-to-DVD market would have some problems with it as well (they'd have to rate it 17+ for all KINDS of things). This is too nasty a series even for Adult Swim in terms of the psychology (because most of the subjects being satirized are things that are never even discussed on American TV, even pay cable, much less made the subject of comedy). Legal online distribution is out of the question because the iTues store would refuse to carry it outright. And it isn't even pornographic, so there's no market there.

That being said, if there's enough buzz or it catches the attention of the right people, it will come over. And, depending on how it is distributed, attract controversy when it does -- because it's obvious that, outside present company, there are many people -- even die-hard anime fans -- who will be offended by this series' content.

I had a completely different impression: while PPD has a lot of references it doesn't utilize wordplay that much. Here, you cannot even translate the title!

The only way it can come over is in a Robotech-style localization which I don't call licensing at all. Money, buzz or even the attention of some (hypothethical) extremely rich fans won't be able to fix its basic untranslateability.

So we'll lose the wordplay. We'd still have the character's crazy personalities, though.

Errrr I don't think that the translation will be a problem at all, well not compared to finding an US company to take the new OP

Can you tell me what's so bad in the OP that makes it so hard to find one? As I don't live in the US I'm not well informed of their censorship policies.

Don't mean to vilify it, but US is the country that goes nuts over some hidden sex scenes in a game where shooting police is a normal thing to do and the fallout for Janet Jackson's boob was amazing. It just seems like a real hot potato, and also the series deals with some very touchy social circumstances, so I'm not too sure how the it will fair in such a PC climet. But then again South Park does its best to piss of as many people as possible and that still does very well over there

Parker and Stone exist to piss people off. That is their purpose in life -- to earn a living being obnoxious frat boys and having the chutzpah to get away with it.

Most of the cast of Zetsubou Sensei is so severely mentally ill that their ability to function in society is virtually non-existent. Even Furan, the eternal optimist, is so delusional in heroptimism that she's completely psychotic. In most harem animes, the hero only think's he's irresistible to psycopaths -- here Itsohiko-sensei is being molested by the entire Physchiatric Diagonistic Guidebook! Literally!

In the real world, most of the maladies from which the cast suffers are treatable, although it's never easy or certain. Itsohiko-sensei, in particular, would probably benefit greatly from a medication regimen and a prolonged stay in a psychiatric hospital. And his efforts to form an imprmptu Suicide Club (which he may not even truly be aware of, because he's so insane that he thinks "I'd die with you anytime" is flattery) would be considered among the most evil actions imaginable -- if they were being done by anyone on Earth except him.

But in the series, these extremes of insanity are played out for comedy, and it works as much because of the brazenness of it all as anyone else. it is the brilliance of this series that it is so brazen, light-hearted and witty about such incredibly distrurbing ideas. It's triumphant that we root for an sympathize with a man we would normally cross national boundaries to avoid contact with.

Luckily we don't have to, because hes in Japan and most of us aren't.

I know that i am slow , and 've just finish Ep 4. But read 15 first pages and didn't see any1 mentioned about the "appear" and "disapear" of a ghost student(he is kind of transparent) in the first half of Chapter 3 ^_^

Can't remember when but most likely is when a student ask if our "Pink Supervisor" ever leave Japan yet.
