Itoshiki is class 2-F’s depressed and suicidal teacher. When written horizontally, his name spells out ‘Despair’ earning him the nickname of Mr Despair. Itoshiki is exceptionally negative, depressed and paranoid and fervently insists on educating his class on the dark side of life and society. He frequently attempts to commit suicide because of his bleak outlook on the world, though he doesn’t put much effort into it often berating his students when they place him in danger by exclaiming “I could have died!”
