Assassination Classroom

Is Assassination Classroom the next Attack on Titan? It’s certainly making a huge splash in the manga world, and it’s easy to see why. With its eccentric tale of an octopoid teacher coaxing a classroom of slackers into assassinating him to save the earth, the series has quirky charm in spades.

The story centres on class 3-E, the worst pupils at school. They’ve been tasked with a bizarre assignment directly from the Ministry of Defence. If they can kill their teacher – the strange being who is responsible for destroying part of the moon – they will receive a massive cash bonus worth millions. The downside is, if they fail, Koro Sensei will destroy the earth within a year. Even weirder – Koro Sensei is in on the plan and actively encourages his pupils to succeed – as all good teachers should! But what is his true motive, and will class 3-E ever find a way of killing him for good?!

Hilarious, bizarre and addictive, Assassination Classroom is a breath of fresh air in the manga world!
