Makoto Konno is a somewhat foolish and tomboyish high school student who spends most of her time hanging out with her two male friends. Things change one day when she suddenly gains the ability to leap through time! At first, she uses her newfound ability to do things such as preventing her sister from stealing her dessert, cheating on a test, and singing Karaoke for 10 hours. However, the small alterations she makes to the timeline turn out to have unforeseen consequences that snowball into dramatic and lethal situations for her and those around her...

Both are good dramas with a kinda complex story or complex characters. Both have a subtile romance that belnds well with both the storys.

If you've liked either one of them, there is a big chance you will like the other. They both have a feeling that I like, and that feeling is "It has to be this painful way"

Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Nozomu Itoshiki is in despair… again! Condemned a traitor to a religious cult he'd never joined, Nozomu finds himself pursued far-and-wide by its mutated, fanatical worshippers. In his final escape-turned-suicide-attempt, he plunges headlong into the oceanic depths. Sometime later he is discovered - beached, naked, and unconscious -by the unbearably cheery Fuura Kafuka, who drags him to her all-girl high school for care. To his dismay, he is instantly appointed teacher to Kafuka, and her class of extraordinary misfits. What ensues is an unending series of schizophrenic absurdities, beginning with the re-introduction of Nozomu's troubled students; and their problems - tail fetishes, stalking, closet-hiding – quickly become his problems. Thus the grand question arises: will Nozomu finally succeed in ending his life, or will his students beat him to it?

Watching ZSZS, I realised that it would be a very difficult show to make a recommendation for. The visuals hit you hard, the audio is slick and constantly changing, anfd you never feel like you comfortably settle into part of the show. I don't think any other show can reach the strange heights of ZSZS...

However, Welcome to the NHK does its damndest to keep up. Although not as disprate and visually bizarrel, it does have an eclectic mix of genres that will appeal to the otaku viewer.

Both shows are aimed specifically at people who know some of the nuances of the Japanese culture, and will keep you laughing along the way.
