Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (さよなら絶望先生)

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (So Long, Despair Teacher) is irreverent, sarcastic and crammed with anime in-jokes and otaku references.

What I like the most is the old-style nostalgia that the series unashamedly uses, especially in the title cards and the kanji. Another subversion there!

Try the first 8 minutes of the first episode on Youtube:

The reference to Osamu Dazai in the Episode 3 opening cracked me up.

The Episode 4 opening. NSFW (some disturbing bits), but graphically brilliant.
