Ever caught yourself screaming, "I could just kill that teacher"? What would it take to justify such antisocial behavior and weeks of detention? Especially if he's the best teacher you've ever had? Giving you an "F" on a quiz? Mispronouncing your name during roll call...again? How about blowing up the moon and threatening to do the same to Mother Earth—unless you take him ...more

A little bit slower volume, preparing for exams, with a special incentive for the Assassination Classroom: If you are the best in the class in a certain area, you get to cut off some of Koro-Sensei's tentacles! . . . which would not kill him, but, you know. In this volume we discover his greatest weakness, water! So there's pressure to throw him in the water, weaken him and THEN kill him because, you know, he is planning on destroying the world, so duh, you haveta to do that, but then on the oth ...more

Last volume we learned of a possible weakness of Koro Sensei. This volume starts off with Class E's attempts to exploit that weakness. Since there are quite a few volumes of this series still to go, the outcome of the attempts shouldn't surprise anyone. And then exams are coming up, and it's time to see how well Class E is doing compared to the rest of the school. We don't actually find out in this volume, but Koro Sensei seems optimistic, and everyone is definitely feeling a certain degree of c ...more

And his little brother returned!
I hate these bullies who have to bring everyone else down with them to make themselves feel better!
And the slurs towards Hara because she's a bigger person are so degrading! But the way she stands up to him is worth it!
I hate how Principal Asano is such a dick, and that his son is also such a dick. All of the unfairness is through the roof! I hate no idea how Class E is actually hopeful! Even without a looming assassination of my teacher, I'd hate being Class E!

Once again just an amazing volume in the series and I loved every single ounce of it. Going to continue on and catch up with the publication in English. Super excited to see what happens next!

I love this idea of playing to your strengths. Koro sensei brings out the best in everyone and I envy the Class E students that they have such a great mentor like him. ✊️👍😁

Oh I HATE the principal but I love how the manga takes the time to explore every characters strengths and weaknesses in depth. Koro-sensei and Karma are probably my favourite characters.

I am still enjoying this wacky adventure where everyone tries to kill Koro Sensei. This is a bit of a slower volume as the class starts prepping for exam season. It also focuses on Koro Sensei's biggest weakness which is water! Once the class finds out that they are trying to get him into the water.

The book, therefore, focuses on two student plots that revolve around water. One in which a girl is being held back by guilt and another when a student's deceit goes horribly wrong. I liked both plots

Here we meet Gakushu, who in many ways is Karma's mirror in Class-A, and have a return of Itona, which was very interesting to see. From the revelation of Koro-sensei's weakness to water, to Itona and his master making another attempt of his life, and the race for first place in the final exams, things seem to be heating up a bit, especially as the summer grows closer to an end.
The humour was still there, and appreciated, but there were a few moments that were a little questionable, like when t

This volume has Koro Sensei with an actual weakness that can be exploited, a renegade Class E student having to choose between himself or his class, and a larger school-wide challenge between our protagonists and the evil forces of the school trying to keep them down. I like how the true motivations of Class E, to kill Koro Sensei, is a secret from the rest of the school and how Yusei Matsui is able to blend the overall plot of killing Koro Sensei as fuel for all these other plots about Class E' ...more

Swimming, more swimming and an exam arc.

I really enjoyed reading this book, especially with the final exam story arc. When class E gets competitive, I can’t help but want to cheer them on. The other stories were good too. I’m glad I got to see more of Karma and Terasaka. The principal’s son is amazing. I can easily see him as the lead in most Shojo manga. It’s good to see characters like him from a different angle (as a villain). I also like how Asano works really hard to pull class E down. He
One tall tentacled beast is your teacher! You may ask how that will work because people will freak out if they find the truth? Well they wont because in this book there’s class E then every other class. Class E is for people with the worst grades and only people who get to class E know about him. He teaches you assassination techniques because either they kill their teacher by the end of the year or he blows up the planet! Everyone looks down on them when they are really on top. Their physical a ...more

Seeing more of Megu's backstory was great, she wasn't one I loved as much as some of the others but I have so much more appreciation for her and her selflessness now.

Stellar, as always. Literally, there isn't going to be a single one of these I don't rate 5 stars because I already know the plot and the characters and that I love them, these volumes just contain extra scenes that weren't in the anime and I love it all the more for them

Finally readers get to enjoy a Terasaka chapter. He was one of the first characters introduced but slowly fell into the background, and I'm glad he got some focus in this book. As the series progresses, larger story arcs are coming into play as Matsui gets his stride and the readers become more attached. Three stars instead of my usual four because this novel wasn't anything unique or spectacular, just more of the enjoyable same. ...more

Again, I love the scenes in the manga that didn't make it into the anime. The fish dream was so freaking cute - I especially loved the costumes - and showed once again how much Koro-Sensei cares for the wellbeing of all his students. The lesson he taught Meg in the one scene was so important, but done in a wacky way only he'd dream up.

Also I adore any of the arcs with Asano. He is like Karma's evil twin - they're even kind of drawn that way - and his deviousness is always impressive.

Not a bad bit of filler...

Water, water everywhere...and is it really deadly? We find another weakness, but whose is it really? The students fight just as hard as korosensei to get through this little conflict. Finally, we make it to their final exams. With the deck stacked against them, will they get an advantage over their teacher or are the elite students still putting them in their place?

This series is beginning to feel a bit repetitive. Nothing beyond the assassination attempts have been developed in any serious way, and there's not a whole lot of variation there. The rest of the school events feel a bit sad and contrived--at least they did in this volume. I'll have to try another and then decide if I want to continue or not. The novelty has definitely worn off. ...more

This series just gains momentum as time goes on, now that the characters are firmly established, it can keep building on their traits and quirks, which makes this and future volumes a joy to read!

I particularly like the ending half of the volume, which begins to pit E Class against A Class, the top of the school vs. the supposed bottom, quite enjoyable to read!
I mentioned in my review of Volume 5 of this series that I'm loving the thematic development within the series. So for this volume, I'm really enjoying the whole "love isn't all about holding someone, it's also about knowing when to let them go". Love is about giving someone the independence to grow! ...more

The students are getting ready for their big school tests and Their sensi gives them an added incentive. If they make it to the top of various subjects he will let them destroy a few of his tentacles before an attack. The students also engage in a bet with the upperclassmen that raises the stakes.
Mateen Mahboubi
The first two-thirds of this volume are an enjoyable romp into exposing the teacher's weakness and trying to assassinate him. Full of twists and turns, it's pretty fun. The last third is fully setting up the next volume and is a disappointing spot to end. ...more
