I never watched Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
Did I miss something?
Watch Hayate, it's the same thing with different art styles, like Minami-ke.
Yes, since it does more than just reference shit
ignore the hayate fags, that shit is just as bad as lucky star.
Yes, it's actually very good. Although, once you get to season 2, you'll have to deal with raging over lack of subs, so it might be better to wait.
you won't laugh if your power level isn't high enough.
Not really, a lot of the humor can make sense to non-weeaboo westerners. Pretty much anyone can associate with all the silly social commentary.
Just ignore the LOL REFERENCE XD moments and I'm sure you'll enjoy it
worth watching if you've seen at least 50 different animes from past 10 years
No, he's right. The power-level is ovewhelming in this one. It's not only "lol animu and mango reference" like in Hayate/Lucky Star, there's stuff related to the japanese culture.
SZS just got a new viewer
Fuck yeah !
a.f.k. is a faggot
SUBS FUCKING WHERE GOD DAMMIT
which chapter is that from?
Most of the high power level weeaboo stuff is all the blink and you'll miss it sort of jokes, the rest of the humour is pretty universal.
You sure did, pal. You sure did...
in before massive SZS trolling
CLENCH THOSE TEETH ITOSHIKI-SENSEI
I wish I could hate you to death Meru
It's raining sticks in dogs.
Although a little understanding of Japanese society is required to understand some parts of SZS, most of time having no knowledge of Japanese society at all should be no problem. Like people've said before, it's kinda universal humour anyone should get.
And yeah, there are some references to other animes as well in SZS, but not as much as in Hayate or Pani Poni Dash.
It's not funny (humour is on level with Lucky Star, aka shit), but the social satire and visual style are pretty interesting. Not as great as some people will have you think, but worth watching.
lolno, enjoy your bleach.
Douchebag. For your information most humour in LS and SZS cannot be translated properly since it's wordplay or based on japanese honorifics and stuff like that. Especially LS based on that and the 4koma thing that originates from japanese theatre style which is almost impossible to translate to non-natives. I'm not saying that LS isn't shit, though.
I really hope the Japanese don't find shit like this funny.
OH KOTONA, YOU'RE SO WACKY
NO U !
Japanese have no sense of humour in general. Only Japanese comedies that are funny are the ones with ridiculously exaggerated characters and situations (GTO, Golden Boy) or ones with something completely random that you simply don't know what's going on but find it never the less amusing (Potemayo, Cromartie High School). Also, some of the older fanservice comedies were funny, though mostly because of the above mentioned exaggeration.
Japanese parody means usually tossing a bunch of references together and that's it, though that's how parody is everywhere. Usually it's not very funny, but there are exceptions such as Excel Saga.
i thought you got fucking B&.
NIPPON EXPERT IN OUR MIDST
LS is shit
SZS is fuckwin
