Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei 9: The Power of Negative Thinking (Paperback)

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"?


Have you ever noticed the “reverse-boy-who-cried-wolf” phenomenon, where normally serious people tell jokes and nobody gets them?  Are recent fashion trends in Japan sophisticated artistic expression, or just gaudy over-decoration?  In volume 9, Zetsubou-sensei loses his job, his freedom, and… his glasses!?  And to top it off, the students of class 2-F are informed that they will all be held back in the eleventh grade… again.

Includes special extras after the story!
