Assassination Classroom or Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is an anime series based on the manga by Yusei Matsui which was first published on July 2, 2012. After three years, the Assassination Classroom series got its first season on January 10, 2015 and became a trend among manga fans.
The anime was subsequently updated to produce a second season, which aired on January 8, 2016. Season 2 proved to be yet another success story.
The Assassination Classroom manga series is one of the most popular Japanese manga series in recent years. It’s so popular, that there are talks of an anime adaptation airing this year! But will it really happen?
Even though in season 2 it didn’t leave a cliffhanger, and ended well, here’s what we know so far about this anime series.
Assassination Classroom Season 3: Is It Possible?
If the Assassination Classroom season 2 anime is shown on January 2016, then roughly five years have passed since the last episode aired; nevertheless, no news has yet been released regarding the continuation of the third season.
From some rumors, and see the facts, Assassination Classroom will not get a third season on the grounds that the second season of the show already covers the entire manga with all the important parts. Of course each anime adaptation has to create their own ending, so adapting only the ending from the recently finished manga.
The first season of the show had 22 episodes adapting about half of the manga’s story. Then, season 2 has longer episodes so it makes sense that it would be able to succinctly wrap up the rest of the manga’s story.
Assassination Classroom Plot
Assassination Classroom was created by Yusei Matsui and started as a manga published through Weekly Shonen Jump. The narrative follows a group of students who are hiding in an evacuation center from an octopus-like alien that has destroyed most of the moon and is poised to do the same to the planet within a year.
Meanwhile, he takes on the role of a high school teacher. The Japanese government made a policy that whoever could kill him would get a $100 million bounty. In addition to educating in academics, Koro sensei also trains students to survive, and as soon as possible be the one who kills him.
A total of 21 manga volumes were adapted into anime. The show runs for two seasons, and is animated by animation studio Lerche. It was a huge hit, but the show ended in 2016. Since then, there has been no continuation of the series, leaving many to question whether there will be.
Assassination Classroom is a science-fiction and comedy series. The episode begins with an enormous disaster that depicts the moon exploding and transforming into a permanent crescent.
The yellow tentacle monster claimed responsibility for the moon’s incredible explosion, following which there was an explosion in the sky. Furthermore, he threatened to destroy the dark event again if he wasn’t given enough resources, claiming that he had been damaged during the apocalypse and needed time to recuperate.
Assassination Classroom Characters
Koro-sensei is a teacher at Kunugigaoka Junior High School’s Class 3-E, and he is the main villain in Ansatsu Kyoushitsu.
He carved out a big portion of the moon to create a permanent crescent moon and plans to destroy the planet after teaching class 3-E for one year.
2. Karma Akabane
Karma is notorious at school for his violent behavior and obstinate attitude. Because he occasionally skips out on things he finds tedious, such as the school assembly, Karma is quite calm most of the time.
He becomes deadly aggressive when fighting, with no compunctions about injuring individuals who endanger him or any of his Class E friends.
3. Nagisa Shiota
Nagisa is in Class 3-E and is one of the students. Nagisa is regarded as one of the weakest students in the class due to his small stature and poor physical capabilities, which are comparable to some of the girls in the class.
However, he has shown himself to be the most capable student at eliminating assassins out of all his classmates.
4. Irina Jelavić
She is a professional hitwoman employed to kill Korosensei by becoming a part-time foreign language teacher in class 3-E.
She uses her sex appeal to entice and then commandeer Korosensei, making him obedient to whatever she desires at first.
5. Tadaomi Karasuma
He is a government employee working in the Ministry of Defense. He made his first appearance, before the year was over, declaring Koro sensei’s deal with the government and their mission to kill him by the end of the year. He later became an instructor in class 3-E, and assistant teacher to teach the students.
Although the ending of Assassination Classroom is very clear without leaving any discrepancies in the story, but something we can hope for is the possibility if there is an additional episode in the form of a Special or OVA that talks a little about the students who have grown up.
