Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei Episode 2

Episode 2 was just as good, if not better than episode 1. I actually laughed at a lot of it raw since I could get the basic gist of things. I only fear that it’ll become a bit formulaic. Once again, this episode also started with Itoshiki trying to kill himself, Kafka stepping in in an attempt to stop him, but actually making the situation worse, and him asking “WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE IF I DIED?!” This is funny once or twice, but I hope they mix it up a bit in later episodes. However, the show had a great chance to show a lot of “its stuff” this time around. Episode 1 was mostly introduction, but now they can get on to the good stuff.

Also a ton of references. I caught a Hidamari Sketch nod, Motsu, Konata and MASSUGU GO.

Oh, and it looks the opening and ending remained the same. Someone told me they’d be different from episode 2 and onwards. I guess not.
