Exam time: Koro-sensei helps us understand high stakes standardized tests:

"Exams are an excellent pedagogical tool. . . even though you'll forget most of what you crammed into your head practically overnight--and certainly by the time you are grown up. However. . . You'll polish your learning skills, expand your minds, and compete against each other on a level playing field. The experience you get from that is our gold." Ha! This one could be paired with the experimental novel Multiple Choice!

That assassination attempt was a thing to behold. Class 3E is really coming into their own. So that's why I don't appreciate some shadowy characters trying to kill them. Here's hoping they get a taste of their own actions. ...more

Final exams time! I love how Matsui depicts the exams as battles with anthropomorphic representations of the subjects. It works well. After grades are revealed, the class gets a well-deserved vacation. They even come up with an assassination plan that seems to have a strong chance of success. Another team is also gunning for Koro Sensei, though, and they're perfectly willing to write off Class E as collateral damage. Volume 8 will kick off with their plan to strike back. Looking forward to it! ...more

I really love this series, ridiculous plot and all. But imagine having Koro-Sensei as your teacher! Math class just got a whole lot better.

This was a pretty good volume. It's now August and that means the first semester? trimester? is over, and it's time for break. Of course for the Assassination Classroom that means more time to try to kill Koro Sensei! I love how the students are growing into their roles, becoming better assassins and learning important life lessons along the way. The exam taking is pretty funny, with the way the students picture the questions. I absolutely love Koro Sensei, he is a great teacher who can reach hi ...more

Quite a bit happening in this installment. There is a school trip to the ocean and more elaborate assassination attempts. I really enjoy the himor of this series and can't wait to see where it is heading to. ...more

It's been weeks since I started this so I barely remember what happened or if I enjoyed it. All I know is that I hate how Irina is written and drawn.

With the finals upon Class E, Koro Sensei has offered quite the incentive: rank #1 in your best subject and you can chop off one of his tentacles; rank #1 in all five and you get to chop off five tentacles to greatly reduce Sensei's speed. If that wasn't enough, Class A has made a wager that the highest ranking class can make the other do as the winner pleases. With the principle pushing his own son to destroy Class E's ranking things are defiantly heating up! From final exams to epic assassinat ...more

I'm so proud of this class. They're getting so smart and sneaky. I really want them to be able to pull it off! Or for their teacher not to destroy the world. Either works.

I didn't expect to grow to love this class so much. Usually I'm rooting for the non human creature in stories like this but totally team 3-E here.

This actually got quite interested, and there seems to be more of a plot actually linking the stories together now. Once more, Koro-sensei's past is hinted at quite heavily, and from the results of the final examinations, the trip to the island and the assassination attempt, and now the mysterious newcomer, I was sucked in from the get-go. It still had the humour whilst also developing the story, which I liked, and the art style is very good - especially the realistic drawings of animals (the Ja ...more

This volume contains my favourite assassination attempts from the whole series so of course, I love it to pieces. Okajima, Chiba, Hayami and Kurahashi particularly shine in this one

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

It's so exciting to see the students of 3E's skills increase as the series progresses! In book 7, we finish off the final exam arc and kick off an exciting new arc that will surely last a while. I'm looking forward to seeing where this new arc goes and getting some character development out of it! I much prefer the assassination side vs. the school side in this series, and assassination is the main focus of this graphic novel. Looking forward to the next one! ...more

So much happened in this volume! A couple of thoughts:

- The way the tests are represented is amazing! I could read those sequences all day
- The perverted nature of Koro-Sensei continues to make me giggle uncomfortably. It's an odd character flaw, but it is very memorable.
- I love this assassination attempt. The students put so much into it and with what they knew, it should've worked. Of course, I'm glad it didn't, but I feel for them.
- The build up to the next story arc is awesome!
Scott Lee
Starts with the outcome of the end of year tests (unless I'm remembering wrong from the end of the last volume), and then details a single incredibly complex assassination attempt.

While this book still has its moments, it's really a one-trick pony and it's just barely amusing enough to hold my attention...If Matsui can't come up with something to liven it up in the next volume, I'm done.
The Georgia Book Belle
AC has a formula. Main quests and side quests. Most of the time the main quests are fun and intriguing. Most of the time the side quests are dull filler.
For example:
Likes: The island and twist at the end. The cool battle sequence of the exams.
Dislikes: the stupid bug hunt and more training sessions.

Test results are in!

They've battled their courses as hard as they've battled Class A. They might just make it out on top. The class request gets revealed and Class E gets to put their skills to use in the real world against old and new foes. We also get go experience More Sensei's ultimate defense form for the first time.

Another excellent edition. Results come in from the final examination of the first semester, the biggest plot yet, complications, and a cameo from everyone's favorite psychic teen. Left on a literal cliffhanger, what remains is the not an assassination, but a rescue mission. ...more
A Spectacular Ghost
This filled in the gaps between season one and season two in the anime, so I'm glad I got to read this. At least now I know that Koro Sensei doesn't randomly turn into a yellow water balloon 😜. Reading this after finishing the anime was a nostalgic trip that made me miss all of the characters. ...more

The students have excelled in their plans and they are on their way to a private island vacation. This vacation will also be the location of their most complicated assassination attempt yet.
Lots of great action this volume and an intresting twist at the end.
Dominique "Eerie" Sobieska
Koro-Sensei is weak to water rendering him immobile. I wonder how all those weaknesses they learn will end up being used. I feel as though all this will become vital in the final arcs of this series. Itona returns! For a few minutes :P

After finishing Death Note I’m finally jumping back into this series. MAN IVE MISSED IT! Gosh this is my favourite volume so far. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Was grinning so much. THAT ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT WAS SO FKN GOOD!! So proud of them! Love love loving this 💗

This one is the most adventurous so far. I like that the characters are developing, the flow of story is getting better, and you even notice the mangaka researched and thought this through. I'm excited for the rest of it even though i already saw the anime. ...more

The conclusion of the E and A class showdown, as well as the beginning of a vacation for E class.

Probably the most enjoyable part of this series is seeing the growth of the characters under the tutelage of Koro Sensei. This volume really begins to show case how much they have grown.

The students do their big assassination attempt on Koro Sensei, using everything they've learned so far, and it's a big spectacle but the outcome feels cheap, with the next plotline immediately flowing from it. ...more
