Assassination Classroom

Matthew Wilbourn-Trotter

This anime was on air July 6, 2012 -March 25, 2016. The series is about earth is threatened by an enormously, powerful monster who destroyed 70% of the Moon with its power, permanently rending it into the shape of a crescent. The monster claims that within a year, Earth will also be destroyed by him, but he offers mankind a chance to avert this fate. In class 3-E at Kunugi Gaoka Junior High School, he starts working as a homeroom teacher where he teaches his students not only regular subjects, but the ways of assassination. The Japanese government promises a reward of ¥10 billion (100 million USD) to whoever among the students succeeds in killing the monster, whom they have named “Koro-sensei”.

The show also had a flims. A live-action film was released in Japan on March 21, 2015. It opened at number one on the Japanese box office with $3.42 million and as of April 5, 2015, has grossed over $20 million. It was the tenth highest-grossing Japanese film at the Japanese box office in 2015, with ¥2.77 billion (US$23 million)] A second film, titled Assassination Classroom: Sotsugyō-hen, was released on March 25, 2016.In English, the title of the sequel is Assassination Classroom: Graduation.

It ran for 22 episodes and has another season in store for the future. I give assassination classroom 5/5 stars. It’s a story where I believe anyone can find a related character within themselves and even see some teaching moments you can use in everyday life.
