Short Review: Sayonara, Zetsubo-Sensei, vol. 27

(All rights belong to their owners. Images used here for review purposes only.)

Sayonara, Zetsubo Sensei, vol 27. By Kouji Kumeta.

(The record jacket reads "Zetsubo Record")

(Inside front cover. Looks like one of the fight scenes from "Kill Bill".)

(Inside back cover.)

In this chapter, the characters talk about the need for fixing things (such as the bent antenna on top of Tokyo Tower), and the difficulty of knowing when to do it.  Some of the students pick up their rooms after one earthquake, only to have to do it again after the next.  Others hope that the earthquakes will shake everything back into their original places again so they don't have to clean up themselves.

Nami Hito rearranges her room so that everything is already in place on the floor.

(Final papercraft page for the Zetsubo funeral set.)

One of the first pages of this volume has the characters talking about when the manga is going to end, with Nozomu replying that it may be pretty soon.  As far as I can tell, it finally did end towards the end of last year (although the wiki page doesn't confirm this), but there are enough outstanding chapters to fill up one more volume.  #28 isn't on the shelves yet, but that should happen pretty soon, if ever.  The end of this manga fills me with despair!
