Am I the only one who thought that ep. 3 was actually an excellent one? Maybe not as hilarious as the first two, but it's still extremely stylish. And how can you not laugh at the "nekomimi-bloomers". :P

I dislike Kanako's voice. her acting ability is inadequacy!
On sound dramas. It was played role by Hirano Aya.
Which is good?

I can say only this. Ryocho-Sensei is God.

I think the voice is perfect, it really is like the character.

I watched the first 3 episodes and didn't like it. The animation is poor to start. The poor animation was made up for most of you by it being funny. Well, for me it wasn't funny at all. I don't think I giggled let alone laughed at all while I was watching the episodes. I'll continue to watch it since I already started, it's released once a week and it might make me laugh a bit in the future.

The idea is nice, it's just not funny for me.

EP 3 was nice, I've started to like this series. ^_^ They talk really fast though, and it's really hard to keep up with everything that's happening on screen with the fast and witty dialogue and visual jokes.

Voice acting hasn't bothered me, so it it's good enough for me at least. Of course for a native speaker it might be totally different. I only concentrate on the sound of the voice, rather than how they say it. Too bad subtitles can't really express different tones and accents very well, so they're lost in translation for the most part.

Oh, and I don't like the CG opening. CG sucks in anime.

I don't she what's so poor about the animation.
Ok it's not stunning. But the director is really good.
And about the trees and stuff. It fits the serie somehow.

Different style =/= poor animation. The series was purposely drawn that way. While it's true that it won't fit everybody's taste, saying the animation is poor is very wrong. And it's true that the characters talk really really fast, but that was also the case in Sayounara Zetsubou Sensei, that's SHAFT for you.

Now that I know that it was purposely draw like that, I take back my previous statement saying the animation is poor. I guess I'm just used to different styles. I've just never watched something like Maria Holic so I don't really know what's what.

I don't think the characters talk fast to be honest. It never crossed my mind.

It's cool, just look at some of the screenshots here and here. You'll see that using textures in such a way is almost a trademark by SHAFT. Though if you didn't like the visuals in Maria-Holic, I doubt you'd like those in Sayounnara Zetsubou Sensei, but it's always a good thing to know the references.

Oh and that comment about the characters speaking fast, I was referring to a comment Ascendancy made in the previous page.
