Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is a series about pessimism. Despair and suicide, to be more precise. In such, it is one of the most hilarious anime series Iíve had the extreme pleasure of viewing in many years. ďWhatís so funny about suicide,Ē you might ask? Listen to the premise, and youíll understand.

Same. After I read this, I went straight to animesuki for torrents.

It's been open in a tab for a while because I can't figure out which group to go with. Any recommendations?

That's the point! Stop posting on an internet chat forum and watch this effing show! AFK released the 6th episode the other day.

Another note that I completely missed out on mentioning, was that at the end of every episode, following the credits, is a piece of Zetsubou Sensei fan art. Not just any fan art, though. They're done by famous Japanese anime and manga artists, including the artists for Samurai Deeper Kyo, Genshiken, Ranma 1/2 (Yeah, that's right. Rumiko Fucking Takahashi does one) and Full Metal Alchemist.
PS: Didn't see the second post, but I'd go with AFK. The subs, video quality and side text are all really well done.

I also second AFK subs.
Anyway, Shaft(the company) is a really good at having interesting animation styles in whatever series they work on(ex: Pani Poni Dash).

For those who haven't seen this, be prepared to pause often just to be able to read all of the detailed things they sneak in every frame they possibly could.

Rumiko Takahashi is a woman, and Hiromu Arakawa does the ending picture for Episode 8.

I knew it didn't look right. I guess I've learned my lesson - stick to a.f.k.

Watched part of an episode at anime night on campus a couple of weeks ago. That pretty much sold me to the show and I have yet to regret it.

After watching Episode 8, I started noticing Kagero (the class president) a whole bunch in the episodes I rewatched afterward. Did this happen to anyone else?
