Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (Episode 3)

I am trying my best to catch up with all the anime reviews since I have assignments needing my attention for the coming days. With this reason, I may consider on dropping one of an anime title to make up time for my hectic schedule.

I know that Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is one crazy anime but the opening scene this time is just mindless. Not ridiculous but mindless. So, we have a fugitive appeared to be running away from the police. After that she found herself a TV and she switched it on. I was lost while watching it. Furthermore Nozomu is easily depressed on many matter including petty ones and those that do not concern him. Most of the time when he feels depressed, he intended to commit suicide. Despite of this, all of his attempts are a failure and this makes me wonder if he truly is a great failure. Even suicide is such a hassle for him. To the least, his antics never fail to amuse me. Yet the episode this time did not punch up much laughters compared to the last two episodes. But what the heck anyway, it’s a great show to watch.

Remember this guy?

Days later Nozomu announced to the class that a test will be held next week. Accustomed to the class’ antics – from a stalker and a girl paying his license for naming him “Pink Supervisor”, he continued on to convey his zero-expectation to his class for the test. Not much a motivation you need from a teacher. However Chiri protested his remark, saying that he will be removed from his job if his class fared badly. Nozomu was confident as the oversea student is returning, having the believe of a higher standard overseas will make the student smarter and is able to raise the class average. That is his usual stereotypic thinking. However when a student said that a student is not enough to raise the class average, Nozomu gotten depressed and intended to kill himself – again. Then Kafuka suggested that the student from the oversea class would be a returnee. Hearing this, Nozomu gotten depressed as the student might be correcting him all the time and again he resorted to suicide.

To look at a girl is considered as sexual harassment.

Finally the oversea student arrived to class. She introduced herself as Kimura Kaere and wanted to speak to Nozomu. However he kept on averting himself from looking at her, claiming that she tried to sue him for sexual harassment if he should look at her. Nozomu is just being over the top. His odd behaviour caught the students’ attention and they wondered if Nozomu had never travelled outside of the country before. With such closed-minded like him is convincing enough for that reason but Nozomu claimed that he preferred solidarity, not ever wanted to travel outside the country. Then all of the sudden, Kaere freaked out and said that the country is filled with strange stuff (or acting differently than where she was from). The rest of the class protested and stood up for their country of Japan (hail patriotism!) then asking her to go back to where she belongs. But then Kaere was overwhelmed by all of this and somehow her personality changed. It turns out that she has multiple personalities and this is when her alter ego (the Japanese personality, by contrast of the foreigner personality) appeared as Kimura Kaede. Somehow Kaede fell for Nozomu but she felt defeated against Matoi (the stalker) and she decided to kill herself. Fortunately Nozomu came in time to save her but this is also when Kaede changed back into Kaere.

Now this is a real sexual harassment – by accident.

Things gotten nasty as Kaere decided to sue Nozomu for sexual harassment. Yet again Nozomu is feeling despair – about having himself in courtroom sketches. So Akai was sitting in the stead of Nozomu. After taking the attendance, she noticed an oddity of a student claiming to be Sekiutsu Tarou who was supposed to be the ignored guy but it turns out to be a girl never seen in class before. Akai just shrugged the matter off but this irritated Chiri. So she decided to investigate on the unknown student. By chance Kafuka followed her along. The truth is that the girl proclaimed to be Tarou is actually an illegal immigrant alonng with more others who came with her. Yet Kafuka (in her usual positive light to the problem) said that these people are actually returnees from Asia. The girl named Maria got the name Sekiutsu Tarou from a male student from the class who was willing to sell everything including her student number to Maria. Despite of such bizarre anomaly, Chiri accepted it as Maria made a proper exchange of buying the student number. In the end because of her looks, Maria became person whom people have apathy with and they all had the urge to protect her. Another odd ending.
