Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

I decided to pick this manga up on a whim, since it seemed prominently placed on the shelf and had an interesting art style. Then I started reading it, and realized something: this may be one of the funniest manga I've read, and my Japanese isn't good enough to catch most of the jokes.

I honestly don't see why this manga doesn't seem to have gotten much attention from the fan community, as far as unlicensed stuff is concerned, so I thought that I'd start a thread for it. If anyone else out there is reading this, and knows more Japanese than I do, I'd love to hear what you think.

It's also apparently getting an anime later this year, so maybe that'll give it more exposure here?

I'm following it now. And yes, the anime is what turned me onto the manga.

The anime is following the manga pretty closely right now, adding in little things here and there that *compliment* the story already (usually doesn't distract from it like another manga-turned-anime-with-distracting-bits-added series I can think of). Though, there is a chunk of episode two that I didn't read in the manga, so they're probably jumping around.

Both anime and manga are very quick-paced with lovely, simple artwork and little references sprinkled throughout the story. And - omg - the first three pages were priceless.
Spoiler for First three pages :p:
I love how atypical Sensei is. Sure, you'll find nice guys in many series who just sort of get thrown into situations in which they help others in need out of their own kindness. But Sensei doesn't really care about other people and just wants to die and clue others in that dying is the best way to go. In fact, he's *reluctant* to help anyone at all. He's such a great character.

Yeah. Considering the number of active projects, we might be in for a long wait. I'm really looking forward to the next chapters.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is such a refreshing break from the typical slapstick humor, panty exposure, and otaku lingo of the usual (high)school comedy. The black humor is reminiscent of the jokes we shared back in my own highschool days.

i should have rephrased that while it is somewhat scanned certain places where these scanlations can be obtained don't seem to have any of it

Im following this but since I can only read the scanlated version Im very very behind
Im hoping with the anime out maybe other scanlators will pick it up. I really love the simplness of the manga, its drawn well but not overly done. I really like it.

Ah, same here, same here. I'm following scanlations and it appears it'll be a long while until I'm able to read the next chapter.

So far I like the anime more, I think it adds a little more "zing" to the series without turning it into something else entirely.

Exactly but with the anime only being 12 epis and the manga almost 10 vols Im hoping there is much more backstory in the manga that we probably wont get to see in the anime, unless there is more then 1 season (which Im also hoping for!)

Does anyone know why the group translating the manga decided to skip 7 chapters? Ive searched high and low and I dont think its due to another group covering those chapters. So whats up with the missing volumes?

It seems that my hope for more scanlated chapters has done the one thing Itoshiki-sensei could not do, it died. I wonder if another group will pick it up.

Wow, the unthinkable has happened: it actually got licensed! This is awesome news, and now I just wonder how in the hell they're going to translate it.

While the hope for scanlated chapters died, the gratitude for translated chapters was born out of those ashes. Nothing personal to the scanlator groups.


I wonder what each character in the series would say about this. I could imagine Chiri going "They must properly translate every bit of text of each page, even the bits that don't have an English equivilant."
