Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei Episode 5 — Measuring Social Standing & The Stain And Poison Removal
Published April 13, 2012
On physical examination day, many of the girls are feeling stress about their weight, measurements and fitness. Nozumu distracts them by deciding to judge the "social worth" of students so that they will know whether they are living "above their station". Chiri seizes on this idea, scolding everyone who possesses any luxuries, appalling Nozumu to the point where he decides to go on a hedonistic binge before killing himself. In the second half he encounters some of his students at a hot spring and is frightened to learn the spring has the power to remove their "toxicity", giving them well-adjusted personalities.
