Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei 1: The Power of Negative Thinking

Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei 1: The Power of Negative Thinking - Koji Kumeta Who would have thought that a manga about a Sensei trying every opportunity to commit suicide would be so funny. And no, it is not that I have a strange sense of humor, but this manga is really funny! To be honest, the Sensei is not trying every moment to die, just occasionally, but he is very negative in every aspect. He is the schoolroom teacher of a bunch of odd students: every chapter introduces one weirdo after another. And I can't decide yet which one is more unique, more extravagant, and more crazy.

So far we have:

- the positive girl (an "Anne of the Green Gables" type).
- the foreign girl with two different personalities (and who likes to show her panties).
- the stalker girl.
- the hikikomori girl who can't leave school.
- the shy girl who likes to bully others thru phone messages.
- the illegal immigrant girl.
- the chairman girl who can't stand things that aren't right (uptight and methodical).
- the girl who loves tails.
- the "normal" girl.

Sensei is like Hinamaru's twin (the gloom mangaka from Bakuman). He is always in despair and just want to die. Hilarious.

The art is normal but cute and suits the story.
