𝐑𝐄𝐕𝐈𝐄𝐖  >>>  The world is in peril and the enemy just so happens to be your sensei and you have until the end of the school year to assassinate him. That might sound easy enough, right?

"Assassination Classroom" follows a group of high school students who are tasked in assassinating a tentacle creature who destroyed the moon and that said creature just so happens to be their homeroom teacher. The students later give him the name Kuro-sensei and he is assigned to the E class of an illustrious high school. The students are given training by either a JSPF member or some other military affiliation in Japan, Mr. Karasuma. They are also assigned a language teacher Ms. Irina Jelavic, whom the students called "Professor Bitch". The students not only have to deal with school work but also find a way to eliminate Kuro-sensei before the school year is over. There is also a subplot about the school hierarchy being corrupted and unfair for anyone to succeed.

This is what Assassination Classroom ultimately revolves around; it speaks about those. Frustrations that we had as high school students, and acts as a coming of age story of sorts about the characters in the show.

The story isn't believable in the slightest and acts as device to advance its themes and characters, which is very effective. The story instead mainly focuses on the comedic aspects between the students and Koro-sensei, while also balancing out the various character dynamics between not only Koro and the students, but even the students among one another.

This works extremely well, and the character interactions are a great deal of fun to watch. The contrast between the various characters and how they see studying, their love for various things and Koro-sensei is interesting and makes their characterization all the better.

The artwork is smooth and distinct and never drops in quality from episode to episode. The animation quality is pleasant and extremely colorful to look at, though the animation and the way the characters are presented in the opening theme leaves a lot to be desired.

Overall, "Assassination Classroom" is a very enjoyable show that unfortunately isn't as balanced as it could have been and its comedy being rather inconsistent, especially in the beginning of the show. Those who can get past that will find a likeable cast of characters, some great comedy and a very nostalgia-feeling show (if that's even a thing), so while the show isn't for everyone it certainly is something you can check out if that strikes your fancy.
