Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei 13: 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"?

RACE OF DESPAIR

Zetsubou-sensei explains his fear of relay races. After all, you never know what kind of baton you'll be passed! What if the CEO of a company passes off the baton to you right as the company goes bankrupt? Or what if a movie director passes off the baton to you right after the main actor quits? What would you do then, huh? In a moment of weakness, however, Zetsubou-sensei passes off the baton to a student. How will the "Second Generation Zetsubou-sensei" fare?
