Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is perhaps the only anime on this list that I have not personally seen all the way through. This series is a great series, but it touches on some subject matters that are a little touchy for me. The main character is a new teacher and has to help his students overcome their various issues.
Why I recommend this to writers: Because it has been recommended to me so many times, and has such a huge following. The story apparently has a huge twist at the end that really makes the series shine.
Warnings: Attempted suicide, stalking, and some other unsavory things.
Have you seen this anime? What about it made you want to be a better writer? Do you intend to go shotgun this anime now that I’ve shown it to you? Comment below and tell me what you think!
