comedy parody school slice of life


More crazy antics abound as Nozomu Itoshiki, a.k.a Zetsubou-sensei, who is the worlds most negative person, tries to teach class 2-F about how life is filled with despair and darkness. A harder task than it first may seem, with his students being far from ordinary themselves, including the likes of the most positive girl he has ever met, his very own stalker, a foreign exchange student with split personalities and a perfectionist acting class president, due to the fact the real class president can't be seen by anyone, among others.

This is a comedy/satire anime and the jokes are generally based on the problems and absurdities of society and humanity as a whole. It's full of references to the anime industry: both to series, producers, voice actors, character stereotypes etc. To understand many of the jokes, you have to have watched a lot of different animes and know your terminology, otherwise you will instead of laughing end up with a question mark on your face. A lot of jabs are also aimed at recent and old happenings in Japan and are thusly hard to understand for viewers without a profound knowledge of Japanese culture and read more

Both are random second seasons with no plot and just random funny moments 
reportRecommended by ariamachi
Both have parody and random comedy as their main attraction 
reportRecommended by Ewulf
Both are dealing with social issues. Also, in both main hero is introduced to a mysterious cheerful girl who's playing an important role in his life.  
reportRecommended by sanjica
Similar artwork and animation style, as well as fast-paced dialogue, raunchy yet tasteful humor, and social critique. 
reportRecommended by Numi
Similar stile of humor. 
reportRecommended by Dille
Both of them show comedy and how to deal with kids in there classrooms. They have a unique way to handle the student and also create a bond with them. They make a few of these student change there ways and there attitudes are completely opposite. Onizuka is a happy go lucky person and Zetsubou Sensei is filled wtih despair... These 2 are very funny school life animes as teachers that run the classroom, also there seem to be a blond chick in both of them that are smart...
