The series has made some direct references to ''{{Peanuts}}'', and this makes a surprisingly large amount of sense:

There will be at least one ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' [[ShoutOut reference]] / [[ProductPlacement plug]] [[OnceAnEpisode per episode]], just like ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]]'' in ''Manga/LuckyStar'' (especially with Kafuka and Kyoko [[AiNonaka sharing a VA]]).

While it is true that SZS focuses only on social and cultural tropes that apply to UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}, you notice that in every episode, Itoshiki-sensei introduces a trope in a form of a rant and then his students chip in and bring up examples including [[PlayingWithATrope subversions, inversions, deconstructions and other ways of playing with a trope]], all in an entertaining form, just like TvTropes.

The story will end in a simple way. Kafuka will finally snap and just kill ''everyone'' and then kill herself. The only survivor will be Itoshiki who will promptly try to kill himself, and fail again.
* At this point, he will realise how lucky he is to be alive, and will, for once, feel joy.
* Alternatively he could end up witnessing God's Last message to His creation and finally understand happiness, thus ending his term in purgatory.

** Meru, on the other hand, could be borderline or undifferentiated schizophrenic. [[TourettesShitcockSyndrome Coprolalia]], [[InnocentFanserviceGirl no nudity taboo]], [[GenreSavvy bizarre delusions that she's in an anime]], [[EmotionlessGirl negative affect]]... they all fit.

The world portrayed in ''Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei'' is very similar to Hell as shown in ''Main/JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac'' - just like Earth, but a bit weirder, and everybody is constantly driven to despair by minor annoyances. This means that Itoshiki died by suicide in the first episode for a crime which made him a target of [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]]. Light set Itoshiki's death to some time after the end of his natural lifespan, which is why he was able to survive a death note-induced heart attack - the reason he didn't die is that he was already dead.
