Review :
Okay....first time i watch this anime i suddenly said......"What the....?!" since this anime is what you can called Weird Anime and full of unimportant things ^___^. But after i watch it the second time, i slowly realize that sometimes, episodes in this anime critisize some aspect in people's life or personality, so from my side of view, this anime teaching us some life lesson about our daily life in misguided and (often) bizzare ways.

"A man who can only see everything in negative way, and a girl who can only see everyhting in positive way. A meeting that never meant to be happen"

Itoshiki Nozomu, a man that always in despair and hate everything and often attempting to do suicide.
Kafuka Fuura, a girl that always see everything in positive way and have weird though pattern
Kiri Komori, a hikkikomori that refuse to leave school
Matoi Tsunetsuki, a super loving stalker that always follow Itoshiki wherever he go.
Chiri Kitsu, a girl that always force herself and other to do something 'properly' and might have violent alter ego ^__^
Hirumi Fujiyoshi, fujoshi....a female otaku that really love yaoi.....
Maria Taro Sekiutsu, an illegal immigrant from asia that live by buying name from one of the student in the class ^___^
Nami Hito, the only normal girl in the class that hate being normal.
Abiru Kobushi, a tail loving freak that always seen to have some serious injury all over her body caused by playing with dangerous animals (such as tiger), but people misjudged him for become a victim of DV (domestic violence)
Kaere / Kaede Kimura, a blonde girl that come from other branch of the school. Have two personality, Kaere which is violent and like to sue people, and Kaede, which is soft and shy.
etc

Imagine what will happen if that much troublemakers are in one class, what will happen ?
Interested ? Then watch this anime and you will find so many weird things happen to them.

So......Red's Rating (1~10) : 7
Contain good life lesson about our daily live. But sometimes it show unecesary things that might confuse people who watch this anime.
