In 2004, just a couple weeks after Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei began, Kumeta did this one-shot for Shogakukan. This is probably related to his departure from Shonen Sunday over to Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen. It’s certainly an interesting one-shot, although it doesn’t quite flow as smoothly as a chapter of Katteni Kaizo or Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. This appeared in one of the Katteni Kaizo reprint volumes that are currently coming out, and Kasu was kind enough to scan and translate it for us.
