A new Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei OVA.
Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei Bangaichi – A Spiral into Despair Amusement
Don’t let the overly long name put you off. “Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei Bangaichi” is a rollercoaster ride of nonsensical hilarity and deep dark humor that might just leave you questioning the very fabric of society.

This doom-and-gloom personified protagonist is constantly in despair about the bizarreness of society and life in general. Aided and, might I add, frequently hindered by his eclectic mix of students, Nozomu’s antics never fail to leave you in peals of laughter or deep contemplation. The whirlwind of a narrative is just eccentric enough to keep you on edge, constantly wondering what in the world is going to happen next.
