With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...
A teacher with troubling background with an unorthodox manner in dealing with situations starts work in the homeroom teacher for the schools 'rebellious’ and ‘underachievers’ class. What follows are comical circumstances that see the once hated homeroom teacher slowly gaining the affection of his students. That doesn’t however stop the students from continuing to implicate their mischief behaviours towards the teacher. (THIS REFERS TO BOTH SHOW)
In short. If you liked one, I am sure you will like the other. As deep down, we all wish we had teachers like this.
The story centers around Junichirou, a young man obssesed with manga, anime and games. He was a young genius who published papers in the journals Nature and Science when he was only 17. However, after graduating college, he became a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) absorbed in his anime blog. Unable to watch Kagami throw away his life, his sister Suzune gets him to work at the Ichou Academy she attends. The head of the school's board, Koyomi Hiiragi, assigns Kagami to his new life as a teacher.
Both series are about a class trying to kill someone in the classroom. In Akuma no Riddle, it's a class of assassins trying to kill one student. In Assassination Classroom, it's a group of kids trying to assassinate their teacher. Akuma no Riddle is a lot darker and more serious with more action and drama, while Assassination classroom is more humorous and uplifting. Both are great to watch and if you want assassins and school, both fit.
Hope’s Peak Private Academy is a super-exclusive institute that gathers the best and the brightest, provides them with a world-class education, and propels them into any career they wish. At least, that’s what the average student Naegi used to think. Having been accepted into a class of 15 students through a lottery system, the boy quickly comes to learn that Hope’s Peak is no ordinary school. In reality, he and the group find themselves trapped inside and learn that the only way to "graduate" is to murder a fellow student and fool everyone in a trial that determines life or death! Led by the whimsically-cruel, teddy-bear-like Monobear, Naegi and the others must do whatever it takes to escape this bizarre, deadly game.
Both of these series have to do with assasinations, trying to take the best of a situation, and the students trying to get their way by killing the teacher or principal. Assisination classroom has a more comedic side though while Danganronpa the animation is a more serious mystery. Although if you like one, you will surely enjoy the other.
