Assassination Classroom!!!

Review by Gaby
Promotional Poster for Assassination Classroom
Another series that has been rising in popularity here in the states this summer is Assassination Classroom.  Recently just finished airing in Japan on June 20th, 2015 with 22 episodes.
This story is not your average high school comedy, its comedy, mixed with assassination plots, mixed with sci-fi, and just a bunch of good stuff all meshed into one anime.
Korosensei is the yellow octopus looking tentacle alien in the image above...well he blows up the moon and basically tells everyone that he will destroy the Earth in one year unless the delinquent class 3-E can assasinate him, hence the Assassination Classroom title.
Korosensei turns colors depending on his moods

 So basically these kids in Junior High are now under pressure to assassinate this alien creature. And the twist is that this alien creature will also be their teacher that teaches them in a secluded area where no one else knows that this is going on.
Not too shabby at the teaching thing
He's actually a pretty good teacher though, actually manages to teach the students while they at the same time try to come up with ways to kill him.

He's so fast he clones himself

Korosensei, is actually extremely fast, being able to travel at Mach 20 speeds is always able to evade attacks from the students, and is actually so fast that he can pretty much clone himself and be able to help all the students at once (quite a hilarious scene).

So yes this is Assassination Classrrom. Expect many cosplayers this summer.  Especially since the series is already a live action series that was just released on March 21, 2015.
