365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 5/365 Nozomu Itoshiki

Day 5/365

Nozomu Itoshiki is in it!

From the anime Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Nozomu Itoshiki is a teacher with interesting views. Mainly always asking negative questions about society, cultures, and why things are the way they are. His students are all misfits that he "teaches" these thought and ideas too.

Why I like him: He brings up situations that not everyone thinks would be a problem and makes it one in a weird way. Some of the reasons he comes up with for these situations are ones I've thought of and wondered why no one else has bothered to speak about them. Very amusing.

Why I hate him: It's the same song and dance over and over again sadly. Sure it's different topic everytime but it's done in the same formula that gets tiresome after 6+ episodes.

Overall: Nozomu Itoshiki is definitely the star of the show. If he wasn't around there would be no show. With his constant questions of the way the world is on certain things with a depressing twist to them is very entertaining. Depending on the topic of course. There are some pretty boring episodes among the 3 seasons and 2 ova's worth of anime. Very unique among the recent shows though with animation and style.

Random: The dog in this picture is my favourite part of this series.
