Manga Review: Assassination Classroom Vol. 1

Damian Trypp here.

Okay so I’m on a bit of a roll with some of my reviews. I have been in a big-time reading binge and have even finished a couple of books in between these mangas and my video games. One game in particular coming out on the 29th of this month, Kingdom Hearts 3, which I will probably end up playing alot. Anyway…to the review.


Ever caught yourself screaming,”I could just kill that teacher”? What would it take to justify such an antisocial behavior and weeks of detention? Especially if he’s the best teacher you’ve ever had? Giving you and “F” on a quiz? Mispronouncing your name during roll call…again? How about blowing up the moon and threatening to do the same to Mother Earth- unless you take him out first?! Plus a reward of a cool 100 million from the Ministry of Defense!

Okay so now your committed…How are you going to pull this off? What does your pathetic class of misfits have in their arsenal to combat Teach’s alien technology, bizarre powers and…tentacles?!
Meet the would-be assassins of class 3-E: Sugino, who let his grades slip and got kicked off the baseball team. Karma, who’s doing well in his classes but keeps getting suspended for fighting. And Okuda, who lacks both academic and social skills, yet excels at one subject: chemistry. Who has the best chance of winning that reward? Will the deed be accomplished through pity, brute force or poison…? And what chance does their teacher have of repairing his students’ tattered self-esteem?


Rating: 5 stars

Okay so this one I originally started off as the anime, but being aware that their can be differences between manga and anime I decided to grab this series and wait a while to read. The overall idea of this is that this teacher may be a weirdo, but he also human and despite declaring he’s going to blow up the world is genuinely trying to help the kids if this classroom. Why, is the big question. What possible reason could a being with so much power have in doing such a thing? This is what had me binfe watching the anime and now I’m probably going to be binge reading this manga to get to the nitty gritty of what makes Koro-sensei tick. I foresee allot of tentacles in the future thiugj
