Assassination Classroom anime to be directed by Seiji Kishi (Persona 4, Danganronpa)
The popular Shounen Jump series, Assassination Classroom (Ansatsu Kyoushitsu) is getting an anime adaptation PLUS a movie. It’s no surprise considering the series is doing very well in Japan with 10.1 copies in print as of July 2014. The anime series will be directed by Seiji Kishi who also directed the Persona 4 and Danganronpa anime adaptations.
Haven’t heard about Assassination Classroom? A squiggly alien comes to earth and destroys 70% of the Moon and says that Earth will be destroyed in a years’ time. However, he decides to give humanity a chance to change this and becomes a teacher at a junior high school. He teaches the students the ways of assassination and the students are tasked with assassinating this squiggly alien. Too bad he has an arsenal of ridiculous powers at his disposal making the task seemingly impossible.
If you want to into the series, Viz Media is bringing the first volume of Assassination Classroom to North America in December. Oh, I should mention it is a comedy series despite its subject. The anime is set to come out next year so it’s perfect for new fans to get a feel for what the series is like before the anime comes out.
