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.
The title of this anime makes it sound like a sadistic and maybe lame wannabe thriller, but in reality, Assassination Classroom is an incredibly wonderful and heartfelt story. It starts off purely humorous and light, but oh my god, it blossoms into something amazing throughout it's two seasons.
One of the most admirable things is the approach to every single character in the show; Assassination Classroom features a class of about 30 students, and surely an anime would never take the time to focus on each individual character and their talents and flaws, right?
By the end of the series, you seriously know about every character and get legit attached to them, which is amazing. The relationships in this show are executed perfectly, and when you give them a supernatural edge, the result is absolutely amazing. There's honestly nothing I disliked about this show, and btw, the ending made me cry so hard, and I'm not usually a cryer. Thinking back about literally any episode of AssClass makes me feel really good and happy.
