The Earth is threatened by a powerful creature who destroyed 70% of the Moon with its power, rendering into the shape of a crescent moon forever. The creature 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 Kunugigaoka 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 (i.e. 100 million USD) to whoever among the students succeeds to kill their teacher, whom they have named "Korosensei" . However, this has proven to be an almost impossible task, as he has several inhuman abilities at his disposal, including the capacity of moving at Mach 20.

Did You Know?


Throughout the anime, main protagonist Nagisa Shiota often finds himself teased by the other characters for his androgynous appearance; coincidentally, three of his four voice actors are women. French is the only dub in which Nagisa is voiced by an actor of his actual gender, with women voicing him in both Japanese and English versions. See more »

Lessons of a unique teacher and an outstanding animated series
30 August 2017 | by AideanSee all my reviews

To find a Japanese animated series about a high school is certainly not surprising and it may be enough to make non-fans of the so- called genre 'anime' run away. What is more, even anime fans could think of it as just another series just after watching the opening but don't be deceived by its childish appearance because you'll be missing an amazing show.

So what is the plot? A class of teenagers must kill their alien teacher because he wants to destroy the world. An apparently impossible duty is handed to them given that no forces of law had been able to kill him. However, the teacher and monster itself encourages them to do their best in their studies and in the killing task.

The attitude of the antagonist known as Koro-sense is not the only weird thing surrounding this persona, his physical appearance and sense of humour makes him a certainly flamboyant character. A 'sensei' quite different in manners to the classical mentor in science fiction stories but not less wise or lovable.

The students of this teacher are also characters who differ from typical ones, they are the worst students of an elite school. This means that they are the ones labelled as lazy or simply stupid and the shows succeeds not only in showing us their true selves and development into adulthood but also in giving a very realistic view on teenagers. While many series tend to show us plain teens with one remarkable trait, here I could see real people even in the less protagonist students. One of the most fascinating things about this show is how in the end you get to know all the students in the class and it is all about their story. Even if there are many great adult characters, they seem flawed compared to this group of teenagers. I insist, the depth of the characters makes it difficult to hate them since you are able to understand their position even when they are making mistakes.

Regarding the drawings, we again can see very idealistic drawings with characters that look like they belong to a children's show and the colours only help to convey this idea. Everything is full of colour and life in a series where the main theme is murder. The colour I think matches perfectly the antagonist friendly and joking personality as well as the didactic idea of presenting the show as a series of life lessons that young people can learn from.

As I mentioned previously, the opening of the show may give a kind of feeling that this show is going to be light yet the intensity of the most dramatic parts is well accompanied by songs that succeed in portraying the feelings of the characters as 'Moonlight' does.

The acting of the voice actors in Japanese is key to characters such as Koro-sensei with its characteristic laugh and changes in tone portraying kindness, pride and anger among other feelings. Voice also plays a significant role in Nagisa's androgynous character and Karma's menacing attitude.

In conclusion, I really encourage teenagers, young-adults and specially teachers to give it a try but I believe Assassination Classroom deserves to be among the greatest animated series ever made so regardless of your age or race, don't miss it!
