I just started reading the manga. I haven't watched the anime but if the manga is any indication, the jokes will start to get very very Japanese. I doubt most western viewers will get some of the hardcore jokes. And they seem like very deadpan Japanese culture jokes. My japanese isn't very good but from what I read up to volume 3, I seem to go huh?? at the jokes they make. It's like asking some chinese dude from china to understand southpark jokes.

Could anyone explain me why does Zetsubou goes 'WHAT IF I HAD DIED?!' after he actually wanted to suicide in the first place. You could say he's all emo and he does it for attention, but there's actually no one in the scene that he'd want to see what he's doing.

Or maybe when he's just that close to dying he realizes he doesn't want to die at all, and freaks out like that?

But that wouldn't make sense either since he tries to die once again the next day..

Any thoughts? xD

That's easy to explain, and a common real-life occurrence. Note that he only ever tries to kill himself in public places, or with people who he know will rescue him. Zetsubou wanted to "show" the world how much it sucked, trying to convince others to follow his point of view through the act of suicide. But he has no intention of dying.

(An example is how people IRL slit their wrists in the wrong direction, and ended up surviving it repeatedly. Sometimes I wonder if the fact that TV shows show the wrong way of wrist-slitting was intentional...)

If Zetsubou really wanted to die, he could have done so in the privacy f his own home. Or if he want to be dramatic, he would do it at "the forest of Death" at Mt Fuji. That forest had so many suicides (due to a book claiming it is the best place to die) that there is signs put up by the authorities saying "don't do it!" "Think of your famiy!" and all that.

You don't have to think hard about it. The anime is one whole freak-fest. Who knows what goes on in their minds?

That's the thing; the characters might be extreme, but their lines-of-thought are actually quite easy to comprehend. They are exaggerated facets of humanity, and not at all alien.

The forest is the place for suicide? You are kidding. Of course they were there to increase their height.

I think you're over-analyzing it. I believe it's simply meant to be humorous that he suddenly freaks out about almost dying despite trying to commit suicide only seconds ago.

At least I found it hilarious.

I think he sincerely want to commit suiside, on the other hand, he, like most people, fear of death. He is both sensitive and negative. The world is so depressing, living is so painful. It is not he really think kill himself is a fun thing to do but it seems easier than living. A bad but only way to escape from worse realtiy, for him, it is.

I see it more like if you die by accident you fear the death, but if you decide to do it then it's another thing. He decides to take his own life multiple times but always ends being an accident more than something made by his own hand. (Ep1 with Fuura, Ep2 Train with Fuura, etc.)

BTW more vectors/walls

If the point of watching an anime is just to see the personalities of the characters so plain, you'd better stay off with Naruto or bullshit like that where there's no actual human reasoning, just "OMG I'VE GOT TO BE THE BEST".

I can't agree more with Herbert btw.
