Synopsis

Nozomu Itoshiki is still the bizarre teacher of the even stranger Class 2-F. He attempts to teach his students the negative aspects of the world and society, only to have each circumstance thrown at his face whenever he tries. With more students and friends than before, Zetsubo-sensei's life becomes harder and crazier than ever before.

In Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, SHAFT shows us how to make a pretty enjoyable show with minimal effort on their part. If nothing else, Zan is an enjoyable, funny, and clever show that fans of the franchise will enjoy like previous seasons. However, the distinct lack of original material from the manga and noticeable drop in art detail may will leave many fans seeking more, which the show does not deliver.

Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is the third season of the wildly popular Zetsubou Sensei franchise, based on the manga by Kumeta Kouji. Like previous seasons, it follows the ever-in-despair Itoshiki Nozomu and his crazy read more

Zan Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei is the third season of the Zetsubou-Sensei series and I have to say it's even better than the first two series. Zan still delivers the despair-filled adventures of Nozomu Itoshiki aka Zetsubou-sensei along with his many 'unique' students. I have also seen there have been improvements in the art as well and at the end of most episodes there is the Zetsubou-Sensei Drawing Song. I am also very content about the new opening and ending themes(I liked the OP so much it was stuck in my head for like a week)

The story has been improved as well. read more

Though the season has of now not yet ended, I couldn't help but write this review, so please bear with me.

First off, to those who haven't yet watched this series, do yourselves a favor and immediately check out the first season. It's not that you won't be able to enjoy it, but you'll pretty much be caught in a whirlwind of referential jokes otherwise.

'Story': As usual, it doesn't have a story per se, but an immense load of material. Like the previous seasons, be prepared(i.e. watch other series) to encounter a deluge of metaphors choc full of social references and criticism, and of course, despair.
