From episode 1, we finally know Kafuka's real name.
I wonder why no one ever pointed this out?

Kafuka: Putting the Trauma in Traumeri.

As for the first part of the episode, words fail me. That was just bizarre.

This. Is. Awesome.

I'm not in despair anymore.

First part was great. Itoshiki, pyramid scheme con-man, misunderstood guy, action hero, girls' high teacher by accident. Has a problem with girls and lotuses.

Then it's business as usual and normal girl finally gets her own segment. Great fun and absolutely creepy at certain parts (Kafuka...what the hell is she!?).

The OP is in the same style as the much-loved "Bure Bure Bure Bure," while the ED is just plain snazzy with awesome shoujo emo art.

And finally, what's all this talk about retconning? I've seen the DVD special and it feels to me more like a recap/reintroduction and showing some sides of the story not seen before (anal retentive girl's viewpoint on how she got to share Zetsubou Sensei's bed) and that's it. According to this thread it's just a minor time discontinuity or two... I guess I'm a n00b, but that doesn't seem like a problem to me! And if it was, well, SHAFT handled it well enough that I, who have no access to the source material, doesn't feel discontinued in the least.

The part where they introduced Nami was made to seem like a flashback, which I think is the best way they handled it really.

I think the first op of this season is just as addicting as the first op of the previous season as I can't get the words out of my head (and I like it). Were the voices of the characters in the op and ed of both seasons?

I just saw the 1st ep; did anyone notice that Nozomu's face looks slightly different from 1st season? he looked normal starting the Nami arc, though.
I loved the"ramba ramba", but I still miss "bure bure", and love it more. Both OP and ED are great, but not as creative and snazzy as the first season.

PS. What is Kafuka's real name? I didn't catch it!

From episode 1, during the flashback scene with Nami, Kafuka was called "An-chan" so it's "An".

Also, from wikiJP, there was an amusing guess on her real name...
Spoiler for yeah, like above:

Seeing as how this is Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei (the series that is), the name should mean something that relates to the character. If not, oh well.

"An" could very well be short for something. :/

According to the manga though, Kafuka's seat is at number 14, while the anime put her seat at number 15. So, gensaku dori?

Hei, we don't know even know what Kafuka's real personality is. In our last thread, there were already discussions on whether in reality this "super optimism" is only a facade while her real personality is completely twisted. Considering that she seems to be able to torture many people while acting regularly, there must be something weird brewing behind the scene. ("KILL KILL KILL KILL KILL KILL can't be killed....")

Somehow , Kafuka remind me a little Rena ( from Higurashi); a ''happy/optimism'' side hiding a far more sad side.

Could Kafuka's SUPER DUPER HAPPY OPTIMISM! beat Rena's Omochikaeri~ Mode? xD I wonder if Kafuka is hiding something...will she be so unbelievable negative that it makes Itoshiki-sensei look positive?! D:

She seemed like such a happy child though. xD

She is not hidding someting; the fact than her parents did try to ''get taller'' ,her uncle in ''Dejima'' and she is denying what happen around her ( hikikomuri= zashiki-warishi, stalker=deep love)
