Teachers are supposed to inspire the younger generation to follow their dreams and achieve great things. However, our hero, Nozomu is not that teacher. Nozomu's probably the most depressive man in Japan--so depressive, in fact, that every little setback in life inspires yet another suicide attempt! But then why is being in Nozomu's class such a blast? Is it his quirky and endearing students? The bizarre adventures he leads them on? Or is there something after all to "the Power of Negative Thinking"? IT'S SPRINGTIME FOR ZETSUBOU It's spring which can only mean cherry blossoms, spring tidings, Golden Week, a new fiscal year, and warm weather! But leave it to Zetsubou-sensei to rain on everyone's parade. Why do we always look at the flowers and forget to eat the dumplings? Why focus on spring tidings, when there are so many spring "chidlings"? What about the people have to work during Golden Week? And what about Zetsubou-sensei's life-threatening outbreak of spring fever? Hilarity ensues in this newest volume of Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei! Includes special extras after the story!
