Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei – Episode 1


How… How did this come to be? For Itoshiki-sensei to be imprisoned…

Brief Summary

Jailed… for bad superstition with his nickname.

Rot There

However, he’s not alone.By the power of their deep love, Tsunetsuki Matoi is always with him.

Matoi Stalker

Won't change anything

After talking with the officials, Matoi notices something attached to her wrist. Bandages…

What's this


On the other end stands Kobushi Abiru. Like the crumbs in Hansel and Gretel, the class follows the trail to find the prison where their teacher is held.

Once they got there, Fujiyoshi Harumi had to use her athletic abilities to scale the wall.



After infiltrating the complex, she unlocked the doors, letting the rescue party in.

Then, the carnage began. Blood flowed freely from whoever stood in their way. Chiri cleared the way with the shovel, Mayo with the bat, MeruMeru with her phone, and Harumi with the Comiket catalog. Deadly combinations.

Harumi Books


The one to capture it all is none other than Kimura Kaere. By showing this to the public, surely they’ll get rich off of the settlement money.


Of course, not everyone was defeated by the initial assault. They survived… only to be finished off by Kaga Ai. Death by apology.

I'm Sorry

As for freeing Zetsubou-sensei, Usui Kagero used his invisibility to slip past the guards and unlock the cell door.



Opened on its own

The rest is history. Their teacher walks away… a free man.

I'll be leaving now

As for the second half of the episode… I have nothing to say.


Flying Saucer




Crazy as usual and SHAFT did an amazing job with the first half of the show. The second half didn’t impress me as much. Not saying that it’s bad but the jokes about the signs of spring and replying to them didn’t stick. I just didn’t understand them.

Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei OP

The OP was pretty fun. Definitely kept to the spirit of despair. The ED wasn’t as attractive. I guess I’m still in the mood for more Marionette.

Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei ED

Crazy good when Harumi opened the door. Creey music with the blood flying about. Definitely the highlight of this episode. Kaga Ai is my favorite out of them all, done in style. As a final word, I would love for Rin to be my tour guide…

  1. Well, it was expected that you like Kaga Ai – she has some of those maid properties :P

    The first episode was fun, and I enjoyed the ED song :)

  2. Matoi somehow managed to sneak into a top-security, impenetrable prison, with no one noticing her until she made her presence known. Why? Because her deep love is just that heavy, motherfucker.

    Man, this show becomes pretty fucking awesome when you over think things like that.
