This book is for ages 16+. If you buy this for your child, beware that they may become very negative and start to hate life.
Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei revolves around a teacher called Zetsubou-Sensei (real name Nozomu Itoshiki) and his class of unique students. Zetsubou-Sensei is one of the most depressed people you will ever read about. All he wants to do is die. His strange personality is somehow attractive to the females in his class such as a super positive girl, a hikikomori, a stalker, a foreigner, a quite girl, a perfectionist, a girl with a tail fetish, an illegal immigrant and more! Every single character (apart from the ordinary girl who says she isn't ordinary) is really strange!
Basically, this manga is about a class full of strange people who talk about everyday things but delve deeper into the truth and make them seem really odd/bad/funny.
In volume 3, we learn more about Itoshiki's family, a male student brings the whole class to tears and sensei tries to commit suicide! Again!
The translator has done a very good job in this volume too. Even for those who haven't much knowledge about japanese culture, the translation notes make it easier to understand but reading whilst flipping pages back and forth between the story and notes at the back can become a bit difficult after a while.
It's still an excellent read with many laughs.
