In a previous post about Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, I explained that I considered the characters to be basically concentrated versions of existing character types, not unlike boiling a stew until all that’s left is a thick muck. It’s a crazy wonderful show.
After two episodes, I have to say that Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is basically boiling down the entire first series until it becomes a thick gravy of pure entertainment. Plot, characters, humor, and metahumor all exist as a singularity from which none can gain a true separate identity from the others.
It’s like injecting anime right into your eyes.
