Nozomu Itoshiki
Name Nozomu Itoshiki
Birthday November 4th
First Appeared in Chapter 1
Episode 1

Voiced by: Hiroshi KAMIYA 神谷浩史
The (often) despaired main character of this series.



While 糸色 (Itoshiki) seems like an ordinary Name at first sight and 望 (Nozomu) seems like a fine first name (it literally means "hope", "wish" or "full moon"), there's a shocking twist if the characters 糸 and 色 are squezed together - the result: 絶, which means "to cut off" or "to discontinue". Together with 望 you get the word 絶望 (zetsubou) - "Despair".
Another pun hidden in the family name might be that Itoshiki is a sound-alike to the word 愛しき which means "dear" or "beloved" - and we all know what a dear person Sensei is to most of his female students.
