A humorous and action-packed story about a class of misfits who are trying to kill their new teacher – an alien octopus with bizarre powers and super strength! The teacher has just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth – unless his students can destroy him first. What makes things more complicated is that he’s the best teacher they’ve ever had!
Time for another one of my favorite anime! Assassination Classroom is such a well animated, funny, action-packed anime. I enjoyed this anime so much that I cried at the end (won’t spoil why) and I have a poster of the show on my wall, this show is also apart of my travel library, so I have both full seasons downloaded to my laptop for when I travel!
I quickly fell in love with the show, from the characters to the story, to the great intro. This show is so funny with the premise of a group of students who have to kill there teacher by graduation or he will destroy the earth. They give their yellow octopus teacher the name Korosensei, which translates to “unkillable teacher.” The English voice actor for Korosensei is Sonny Strait, also known as Krillin from Dragon Ball, Maes Hughes from the Fullmetal Alchemist series and Usopp from One Piece, along with his many other rolls.
Korosenseis powers and abilities consist of:
Antimatter physiology: so he can’t be harmed by normal weapons, only anti-sensei weapons can affect him.
Protective coloring: He can change into any color for his skin, and it is used for his disguises and camouflages. It is also the principle of the faces which represents his moods. Since it is only applied on his skin, to fully use the ability Korosensei must be fully naked. Although when he is blushing, the coloring won’t cover the blushes on his face.
Mucus: The standard trait of an antimatter organism, the mucus that Korosensei has varied uses for support purposes, such as waterproofing, cleansing, adhesive and the replacement of tears.
Absolute Defense: He can shrink his body into a sphere and the remaining energy from the transformation hardens as a seethrough second layer over his spherical body, making him impervious to harm.
Superhuman speed: He can travel up to the speed of Mach 20. His normally soft and jelly-like head hardens under immense pressure as a process known as the dilatancy phenomenon, which presumably lowers his wind resistance, allowing him to reach inhuman speeds.
He also has genius intellect, assassination (showed to be extremely observant and stealthy at planning and execution), eidetic memory, Genius chemist and machine ingenuity.
I would highly recommend this show to anyone out there. You have a class of junior high school students who have to kill a yellow octopus before they graduate, but he just wants to be a teacher (and he is a damn good one at that). I would give this anime a 9/10. I really wish they didn’t end the show yet, a spin-off continuation series of this show would be amazing.
My question today is, if you were in this same situation as the students, how would you attempt to assassinate your teacher? Make sure to be extra creative because you have to deal with a yellow octopus creature who has all those abilities and powers above.
Thank you so much for reading my post, I hope you enjoyed it, and as always, have a great day!
