Anime To Watch: Assassination Classroom
If you ever wanted to look around for any feel good anime this is definitely one of them.
Assassination Classroom tells the truth of Koro Sensei, a biologically engineered life form that agrees to teach Classroom of students from Kunugigaoka Jr. High known as E-Class for one year before blowing up the earth.
Because of this, not only does Koro Sensei teach these students but they must train themselves to learn how to assassinate their teacher before the year is up to save the world.
E-Class is considered the bottom of the barrel at this junior high as most believe that nothing good will come of the students that are sent there. However through the teachings and kindness of Koro Sensei, the students learn that they’re more than just low ranking students and that they can achieve anything they put their mind to.
This series has a good balance of action, comedy, and drama mixed in together. I’ve never seen an episode of this show that I consider boring or pointless. There are definitely a lot of life lessons that you see throughout this series. In a way it reminds me of an anime version of Boy Meets World with Koro Sensei as Mr. Feeny. All of the characters are interesting and unique in their own way and you really root for them to do well in life despite their circumstances.
For anime fans and even non anime fans I highly recommend this series, it’s well written, it’ll make you laugh and at times a little emotional. Check it out on Funimation, Crunchyroll, or buy the series on DVD!
