|Episode:||2: A Safflower Can Shine In A Garden But Cannot Hide|
|ADV Title: A Safflower Stands Out In Any Garden|
"Becky" is having trouble remembering her student's names, so she devises her own names for them, not with the greatest of tact. We are introduced to some girls in another class, and some of the other teachers at the school, plus "Upako", a pink tadpole-like creature. Mesousa meets the cat-god of vending machines again, and a robot from NASA pays a visit to Becky's class...
|Everybody seems to compare this show to Azumanga Daioh, but considering how bizarre it gets, it kind of reminds me of School Rumble. About the weirdest AD got was with that yellow cat creature that posed as Chiyo-chan's father. This show has a similar character, plus Mesousa, aliens, UMAs (Unidentified Mysterious Animals), the creepily weird Ichijou, and all sorts of tie-ins to video games and other shows, both anime and live action. So, it has a lot in common with Excel Saga as well.|
