Goku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
More of the same--a couple of additional episodes have been completed for those who couldn't get enough of the first and second seasons of SZS. As usual, conversations between Mr. Despair and his students veer wildly off track into bizarre, nonsensical situations such as a discussion of men who are immune to "Honey Traps" (being blackmailed by fake lovers). As usual, you'd have to be born and raised in Japan to completely "get" the jokes, and there are so many text gags in the background that one must pause every couple of seconds to read them all. As a result I have a hard time watching more than half an episode at a time--as usual. This show would be infinitely easier to enjoy in dub mode. One new thing was that there were some amusing parodies of other popular recent anime series. If you liked SZS and Zoku SZS, you'll like this (as if you didn't know that already).
