You know, it IS Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, so you are going to get a crapload of mindfuckery heading at you, from politics to michael jackson to chocolate hearts.
*below are some spoilers coming atchu.***
Story: Just like any old Zetsubou Sensei material, there will be mindless plots, random explosions, and a bunch of ADD worthy material mentioned. But be warned: this anime requires a lot, I mean a LOT of anime and Japanese knowledge to be funny. I mean, a parody of Code Geass, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, and cosplaying all at the same time?! Come on! thats crazy! But it is just how this anime read more
