Has anybody else seen this anime? It's SHAFT's new show, and it has a lot of kanji jokes in the first episode, so I'm wondering if they've been doing a good job subbing all the translations; either way, the first two episodes are hilarious (if you're into dark comedy). Only two episodes are out right now (subbed), and it's only scheduled for 12 (so I hear), but right now I can't get enough of it. Anybody else's opinions?

Best series this year. And the strangest.

Definitely the best of the new summer anime, at least. I don't think I've ever laughed this much watching anime... So many good comedies this year ^_^

I watched the first two episodes of this and thought they were hilarious. However, I have a concern. If the whole show is going to be



then won't it get boring or even profoundly disturbing. I think it might be like catching yourself laughing or excited over a train wreck. Sure it is interesting, but laughing at catastrophe isn't generally a sign of mental health.

I'm waiting for episode 3 to show up somewhere.
I think the series is going to develop the people in the class.


I don't think this series is going to be a really depressed one.

This is, in my opinion, the best show of the summer and possibly for the entire year. It tries to be depressing, but it falls flat on it's face. Itoshiki Nozomu couldn't be funnier!

I didn't really like it after seeing 3 episodes, I couldn't stand the teacher. If you're going to kill yourself, do it, don't blame others if you fail at life.

Yeah I know, I don't get the humor they use and it's not for me. I guess I'll GTFO now.

I know I'm behind the times, but I just decided to pick this one up. So far I've only watched 2 episodes, and I think I'll like it. Not my favorite show ever, but amusing.

But, I must admit in episode 2 I laughed my ass off at
I don't know why, it just sort of caught me by surprise (the boy I expected, but after that)... Hilarious.

Don't worry, that one killed me as well -.-' I think ep2 is prob the best one... it either gets weaker or just a bit old after that, though things seem to be improving since that drop.
