So great! The anime is in my top 3 faves so it's about damn time I started reading the manga. I own the 15 volumes that are out in English so I will be reading all of them verrrrry soon.

Cross The Breakfast Club with The Most Dangerous Game and The Magnificent Seven - now you have Assassination Club! The students in Class 3-E (remedial class) of Kunugigaoka Junior High have a new teacher this semester: an alien octopus (whose head is the classic 70's 'smiley' face) with bizarre powers and almost unlimited speed and strength! He just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth - unless they can kill him first - and claim a HUGE monetary reward, going from loser to ...more
It's probably weird to find a being that's destroyed most of the moon and plans on destroying Earth if he isn't assassinated in a year ... kind of lovable, cute, and squishy.

But ... I love Korosensei.

"El manga del profesor con tentáculos"

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ese tipo de manga.

Emmm, esto ocurre en un episodio y no es exactamente lo que estáis pensando...
Este es el profesor con tentáculos.

Como podríamos definir este manga?

Es el manga que cumplió los sueños de esta niña, ¿Que?, ¿Quien es esta niña?, ¿Como estas leyendo esta reseña?, ¿Tienes Internet?, En fin... (mirar vídeo antes de ver spoiler) (view spoiler)

This was quite refreshing, if not a tad odd to read. The story is just utter nonsense really, and that might be one of the reasons why it has appealed to me. I'm not joking, the plot is absurd.
The story centres on some octopus-like squishy kind of guy, who is wanted by the Japanese ministry of defense, for destroying the majority of the moon. For some reason, he is given a teaching position in a school, so that he will cause no panic, but everyday, a classroom full of kids, that just happen to

I have never read manga. Ever. Reading right to left is confusing, it's black and white (or at least this one is), and it's weird, even by comic standards. So it's never appealed to me. But I'm open minded and this gets incredible reviews. So here we are. I read manga.

So how do I as a non-manga reader describe Assassination Classroom? Absurdism. It makes no sense and you just have to go with it for pure nonsensical entertainment value. Koro Sensei, a pun meaning "the teacher that can't be kille

Assassination Classroom has an absolutely batshit premise: a talking tentacle monster with a smiley face who can move at Mach 20 destroys most of the moon and will do the same to Earth in a year unless humanity somehow stops him. Oh and the monster - called Koro Sensei after a pun on the Japanese word “koro-senai” meaning “can’t be killed” - wants nothing more than to be a high school teacher!

All of which is fine by me - silliness, unique setups, and imagination aren’t my problem with this comic

Crazy premise: A goofy-looking smiley-faced monster has already destroyed much of the moon, and now threatens to destroy Earth, in one year, but he also wants to become a teacher. For some reason. And he's a good teacher, too. Koro Sensei, they call him. The unkillable teacher.

So, his low-performing students, in order to prevent the unthinkable, must assassinate him, of course, and he is aware of this but is so far unkillable, though they seem to be making progress in their goal, getting more in

Assassination Classroom. Judging by the title, it sounds like one of those survival manga, like Battle Royale or Doubt or Future Diary, in which high school students are drafted in to a dog-eat-dog killing contest where there can be only one survivor.


Assassination Classroom takes place on Earth, but an Earth which is playing host to an almost impossibly powerful alien monster who demonstrated his talents by blowing an enormous chunk out of the moon. All military efforts to destroy him have

I really liked this book. I love that Koro sensei taught the class about some life lessons. I know they're trying to kill him but it's very interesting. I can't wait to see what will happen. Also how he killed a woman and became a teacher for her death. I'm curious of the background.

Possibly one of the strangest books i have ever read, and that's saying something. I did really like this one, it's funny and it's kinda sweet for you know a bunch of kids trying to kill their alien teacher.

El primer volumen de este manga es INCREÍBLE...! Desde La primer página está llena de mucho misterio e intriga y sabiduría de parte de un ser tan poco esperado y extraño, tiene unas frases que te hacen reflexionar y que son muy verdaderas para nuestros propios objetivos, y el anime es fielmente al manga. Sin duda alguna deben de leerlo, no se arrepentirán.

Me divertí como loco con esta historia.

Para que leer esta trama:
1. El maestro o villano de la historia es tan grotesco y al mismo tiempo tan inspirador que te divierte y te enternece.
2. La manera en que crea el autor el escenario es muy bizarro e imaginativo.
3. La originalidad de hacer una historia de ciencia ficción, terror y misterio en un sólo escenario como un salón de clases es sublime.
4. Ame a Korosensei.

I have tried to get into manga over and over again, and after listening to a teen describe this series, decided to give it a go.

Alien from some other planet invades earth, gives a timeline for when he's going to destroy it, and insists on being placed in the position of a teacher for a bottom-of-the-barrel school. The students are tasked with killing the alien before it's too late.

It's a ridiculous gimmick, and goofy, and not terrible to get through, so I finished this first volume, but feel no

Manga dengan premis yang aneh tapi keren. Ceritanya lucu, karakter utamanya menggemaskan dan keadaannya gak masuk akal. Karakter Korosensei kok adorable sekali sih? Inspirasi bikin penjahat yang seperti itu dari mana? Unik sekali.

Karakter siswanya belum kelihatan, cuman lewat sepintas sepintas, gak ada yang kecantol di otak. Cuma Nagisa yang awalnya saya kira cewek yang agak kelihatan. Mudah mudahan di volume selanjutnya ada karakter yang digali lebih dalam selain Nagisa. Ada bebera

This was one of the weirdest things I have ever read... and it was awesome!

The art didn't feel convoluted and confusing like a lot of manga does for me. The characters were slightly average, but still likable. It had some good humor, mostly in the form of one-liners. The dialogue flowed well, too. The plot is one of the most original plots that I have ever experienced. It was really weird in a really good way.

Definitely going to continue this series.

Surprisingly likeable, much like Koro Sensei himself. The premise is totally on crack: Most of the Moon is destroyed by a being of unimaginable power, and he promises to do the same to the Earth one year later. In the meantime, he wants to teach. So a group of Japanese high school students have him as their teacher. He helps them learn, they try to kill him before the year is up. And he encourages them. And it's really cheerful and goofy. It's one of those premises that, if someone tells you abo ...more

It's been a long time since I delved into the world of manga, and I wasn't sure what to read first. The librarian at my local branch recommended "Assassination Classroom," which she called "a lot of fun." Well, she wasn't wrong! I giggled at the premise: an octopus-esque alien has destroyed most of the moon, and is threatening to decimate the world in a year's time. The only people allowed to kill him (or even attempt it) are the students of classroom 3-E. It turns out that the alien, later dubb ...more

This is very unlikely premise, and I seriously wondered what my reaction would be to this series. The verdict: wonderful! This is one of the most curious works I've read all year. Nicely crafted, and so much fun. Shea and I discussed the first six volumes of this series on a recent manga episode:

A squid type tentacle creature with a happy face destroys half of the moon and says that he is going to do the same thing to the earth in one years time. The dude can travel at the speed of Mach 20 and can't really be killed by any conventional means...except for rubber knives and bb gun pellets.

Luckily for the earth, he gives us a chance. He requests to be a junior high teacher and will instruct the classroom on how to assassinate him (as well as being a regular teacher in the subjects of Math/
