Something that I'm working on: Best anime/manga of all time (Click to show)
But on top of both of those kinds, there's just the "brilliant" flavour. That's where Sayonara, Zetsubou-sensei sits. Behind the facade of episodic dark humour with in-universe stereotypical characters, there's mind****s that mind**** a mind**** story, of how maybe the mangaka already planned the ending but make **** up as he go along, for the comedy is based on real life events.
An anime adaptation where the studio might have already know how it truly starts and ends, adapt as much as possible but dropping foreshadowing in almost everything related with the anime. Yes, including the character songs, the OST albums, even the promotional albums are a part of the web of mind****s.
Sleight of hands on top of sleight of hands. Double meanings inside double meanings.
Also, in light of the full revelation, this song took a whole different context now:
I'm almost done with season two. Next up is season three and the end of the manga.
