Each of these series are comedic with a love story going on slightly in the background. Both of these series make constant reference to other anime and otaku culture for a hilarious result.
I thought of this anime when I was watching this series because they both make references to other animes.
Life is simply not worth living for down and out school teacher Itoshiki Nozomu. He has no hope of progress, no prospect of promotion, no chance at happiness… he is in despair! Even his name spells 'zetsubou' – 'despair', when compressed. But when the time comes to end it all, Itoshiki's attempted suicide on the first day of the new school year is foiled by relentlessly positive Fuura Kafuka. This saves Itoshiki long enough to meet his new class, and the quirky range of students under his care. Will Itoshiki Nozomu depress his students with his anguish? Or will Fuura show Zetsubou-sensei the joys of life and hope?
Even though the plot are as different as night and day, (wait, wheres the plot?) nevermind. You'll like one if you like the other, both of them are parody animes, in Sayounara Zetsubo Sensei the parodys are harder to notice as they are not as obivious as in Seitokai no Ichizon. Both also seem to have a faniscation with Death Note. Though not exactly similiar give one a shot if you like the other.
Both anime features a lot of parodies about another anime and videogames (though SZS parody more stuff than that and sometimes it's jokes are hard to get) so, if you like one you'd like the other one.
Who is MAICO? She is state-of-the-art in android technology, a Multimedia Artificial Intelligence Computer Organism, and the host of Japan Broadcasting System’s latest primetime variety show, JUMP OUT MAICO 2010! With an insensitive director with one mega-hit in 15 years, a highly experience technical team, a talented writer inspired only by others’ misfortune and massive pressures from corporate executives and sponsors alike, what kind of adventures can the staff have? What lessons can Maico learn from them? And what is MAICO’s true purpose?
Each show takes place in a single room, where an ill-matched team defends their modest achievements against the rest of the organisation. Maico is office humour, Seitokai relies on anime references. If you get both, watch both!
