Sayanora Sad Sensei

Oh my stars and garters. I've found what is probably one of the funniest animes ever. It's entitled Sayanora Zetsubuo Sensei (roughly translated as: Goodbye Sad Teacher). It's a black comedy, and here's the synopsis from

A suicidal teacher, who can see nothing but the worst in life is saved from committing suicide by a girl who turns out to be one of his students. A girl who is unfailingly positive, unable or unwilling to see anything negative in life. Who believes with effort, any obstacle can be overcome. The teacher with no hope, gets a student with more then she needs, and a class in desperate need of guidance.
I've watched the first two episodes so far, and they both started with the teacher trying to kill himself, only to get saved by the girl, by her almost killing him. He then screams at her: "What would you have done if I had died."

And then going from that opening joke, it just gets better and better. From the Hikikomori student to the stalkers to the just surreal-ness of the animation and waht's happening. I can't wait to see what comes next here. I was just thoroughly amused the entire time I watched this one.

But of course my favorite gag, has to be the 'suicide kit' which the teacher carries with him. Contained within it is a Best of Enya CD.
