Whether a fish lives in a clear stream or a water ditch, so long as it continues swimming forward, it will grow up beautifully.
Welcome to the world of Assassination Classroom. An anime about a group of teenagers who are tasked with the duty of killing their perverted octopus homeroom teacher. Gotta give it to Japan on this one because nothing will top that shit off lol. If you think this anime is going to be about octopus hentai then you’re
absolutely fucking correct going to be mildly disappointed lol. Please do not try to assassinate your teachers in real life, because they may actually die lol.
Let’s talk about the Octopus in the room first. Koro-Sensei is an intelligent, perverted and extremely fast yellow ball of slime that loves snacks. This yellow octopus has one goal, and that is to destroy the earth by March next year. You’re probably thinking, what the hell can a yellow octopus do? WELL. Look at what he did to the frikken moon! He claimed to have destroyed 70% of the moon’s surface just from farting sneezing. Now that shit is permanently in a crescent shape lol
Koro-Sensei enjoys a challenge. All of the governments attempt to assassinate him have failed. Guns, missiles, nuclear you name it, he’s indestructible. In my opinion, they should have used Naruto’s sexy jutsu lol. He with one of the most ridiculous offers that I’ve ever heard. He will specifically teach at Kunugigaoka Junior High School, Class E and allow ONLY his students to kill him. By doing so, he promised to extend the deadline of earth’s destruction.
Kunugigaoka Junior High School minding its own business is about to get thrown into this unexpected mess. Now we have Class-E, the rejects of the school who are pretty much delinquents with bad grades. With that said, they are my favourite class in the school because of how nice they actually are. The class is located behind the main school on a hill and Koro-Sensei comes busting through the roof or door I can’t remember lol.
If they succeed in killing him, the government will award them with 10 billion yen or 100 million USD! Now the kids in Class E were like wtf? As easy as it may sound to kill a yellow perverted octopus, they couldn’t even get close. Super intelligence, Mach 20 speed and a lewd sense of humour this makes for a perverted comedy anime. Koro-Sensei is teaching the students regular subjects, but he is also teaching them the ways of assassination. Tbh he’s such a good teacher and he really cares about his students helping each individual improve their grades and skills for their future.
Regular guns and bombs and stuff aren’t effective against Koro-Sensei. They just can’t hurt his slimy gooey body. The government have devolved special weapons called Anti Sensei Weapons which are made of some rubber material that’s effective against his anti-matter body. Harmless against a human but slices through Koro-sensei like tofu. They are usually green or pink in colour and comes in many forms such as knives, grenades, bullets etc.
We have the main characters Nagisa and Karma. The red and blue hair duo are rivals and sort of like Naruto and Sasuke. They don’t exactly get along that well but it’s enough for them to be cooperative. Nagisa doesn’t have any particular skills but utilises what he has to his advantage making him the best assassin as the story goes on. Karma has the brains, looks and strength to beat the shit out of anyone he comes across. According to Nagisa, Karma has a violent nature and loves to fight. That’s why he’s been shifted to many schools and now ended up in class E.
Later on, there was an addition of Karasuma and Irina aka Bitch Sensei as the students called her lol. These two low key have a thing for each other and they fall for each other at the end of the anime lol. Karasuma the strictest teacher you’ll ever come across in your life but also glad that he’s on your side. It’s also funny how Bitch Sensei is always hitting on him but gets curved everytime lol.
As the series continues, shit pretty much hits the fan. Many assassins come after Koro-Senseis life for the reward and ultimately the kids get caught up in it too. However, you can see the development of the kid’s teamwork and personal growth as they overcome challenges. Nagisa receives the most improved award due to his hard work and death clap. He also has a list of Koro-Senseis weakness that comes in handy for the whole class as they try to assassinate him every day.
UP to this point, you’re probably asking why Class-E at this specific high school???? And why did the most powerful creature on earth become a teacher? Wellllll. Believe it or not, Koro-Sensei was actually a human not so long ago. He was a part of an experiment for antimatter and was tested on for years. There he met a quirky lab assistant named Aguri Yukimura, the former teacher of Class-E. She was kind, funny and smart. Everyone is Class-E loved her. However, she was killed trying to protect Koro-Sensei as he was escaping the lab.
Koro-Sensei honoured her last dying wish and decided to become a teacher himself. You can see that he got his human characteristics and values of teaching from Aguri. And asking permission to teach in class E and threatening to destroy earth was the only way he could look after them. DEBUNKING the myth that he destroyed the moon, it was actually a lab rat that had undergone the same antimatter experiments that blew up the moon as its decreased lifespan came to an end. This means that Koro-Sensei’s death was inevitable from the start. Very sad when I found this out.
Koro-Sensei actually was the best assassin in the word known as the God of Death or Shinigami. He had an apprentice who backstabbed him during a prison break and handed Koro-Sensei to Shiro for the antimatter experiments. You’ll see them fighting in the final battle and it was pretty intense. BUT the saddest part of it was that Koro-Sensei instructed the class to kill him before his time was up. EVERYONE STARTED CRYING AND BALLING THEIR FUCKING EYES OUT BRO. I mean their beloved teacher asked them to end his life was probably the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. In the end, it was Nagisa would perform the assassination and said the last goodbye.
If you’re a teacher or a shitty delinquent looking for some inspiration, I’m pretty sure you can find it in this anime. The Koro-Sensei everyone loved sacrificed himself to the very ends to see his students. Although he wasn’t there to congratulate them on their graduation, he remained in their hearts till the very end. The amount of dedication and protection will tug all your heartstrings and make you cry a few waterfalls. Loads of respect for the writers of this anime ❤
