I first thought this was going to be a very weird series, and it is, but it really has some depth to it. It really is worth reading. One thing I'm still confused about, is why the whole class is so prideful about wanting to kill their teacher. Sure saving the world and getting a reward is one thing, but they talk about killing their teacher themselves like it is the most innocent thing in the world. I just don't get it.

Why is this marked Tragedy? I mean, I know something happened in Koro sensei's past, but is it because of that? Or is something going to happen after they kill him? Anyway, I really love this, Matsui Yusei is a genius for making it. And I can't wait for the anime adaption! smile

What's up with all those mediocre reviews? What do they expect of a manga with such a story description? Something really deep and moving? Sorry, you should move on. This is a shounen series after all...

What you see here is a perfectly well made gag manga that has a quite slow moving plot. For now read it for the comedy, later on for the actual plot. It will become more serious at some point if my prediction is right.

It is basically Great Teacher Onizuka on acid. Reminds me somewhat of Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei in that regard.

Sure the premise is retarded, but ridiculous premises that somehow make great stories is why I read manga

Assassination Classroom is an excellent manga. I've noticed that its getting good to mediocre reviews due to the whole plot and details, but this manga goes much deeper than the ordinary assassination plots and school life. Assassination Classroom is not only about a bunch of low-ranking students on a mission to kill their teacher before graduation, but also how they learn to work together and explore the weaknesses of their target and teacher with each passing chapter. This manga shows the true nature and relationship of assassin and target, teacher and student. The humor inserted in this story helps keeps things interesting and gives it more of the school-life touch. Assassination Classroom grows and develops, and it will also grow on you.

Yet, it somehow doesn't seem as funny as it should be. It's quite amusing but not laugh out loud funny, which was what i was expecting from the premise.
It kinda sucks how education makes me a little ticked off when the impossible happens in manga/anime bigrazz (or, rather, the impossible happening with no explanation e.g. there being no catastrophic effects from the moon being mostly destroyed) but it's something I've just got to get used to personally and I suppose it has no place in this comment... <,<

I was kinda surprised by the tentacle rape being used as a joke in WSJ but...*shrugs* Japan, man. bigrazz

The series in itself is fun, I'm a big fan of Matsui Yuusei's extremely weird humor (though this is not his best work by far) BUT in my opinion, the plot, though not uninteresting, can't work.

The students are obviously fond of their alien teacher and vice versa. In this situation, anyone who's not a psychopath nor a complete retard will realize that there is no way he's gonna kill the target, weird alien or not.
So there is a feeling of pretence in the story. Every time the students make a move of the teacher, I get the impression that they're pretending, since the atmosphere makes it impossible in my mind that they'll actually go all the way...

On the other hand, depending on how the story unfolds and how the atmosphere evolves (I've only read 4 chapters so far) this paradox could lead to very interesting psychological situations and dilemmas. *_*
So, let's wait and see

Interesting manga to say the least and scores high points on originality, comedy and execution. Certainly not your typical shounen manga, and manages to score lots of laughs whilst still being well grounded.

A lot of comments have criticized the manga for simply having too silly of a storyline, but honestly the manga more than compensates with its clear cut direction and intent. Each page is sharp and witty (more than I can say for a handful of other shounens), and despite the quirky plot the flow of the manga feels surprisingly natural.

If you enjoy a good laugh and are looking for a manga that doesn't have a thousand cliche's packed into every panel, then you won't regret taking a look at this title.

is one of those things that can only get better because really if it gets worst than it already is, it would get cancelled. So if for some reason you like the so far 5 chapters that are released then go an be happily prepared for a loooooong road of pointless action, it would probably go to the guy then using the kids to fight a major enemy, now that they are trained, and then it is gonna take them forever to finish.

now under no circumstances use the excuse of give it a try because there is nothing better, or because other shonen are equally bad, if you have that much free time grab a seinen manga, or go and read a proper book.

So you better come with a better justification, you know like, the cheer stupidity of the plot just happened to be your thing, simple and straight forward with no direction, that is better than the above. Or you like the manga or not, but do not compare, that is insulting to yourself, like taking the smallest out of two pieces of shit and shove it down your troath.

I, for once, think the idea is cool. Well, you can use other words such as creative, original, amusing, remarkable, but to sum it all up, cool fits perfectly. Since I sincerely like the mangaka's other manga (Neuro), I have rather high hope for this one. That is with proof that the flow of the story so far is really interesting. It gets more gripping chapters to chapters.

As for the comment below me by Ninetails-Naruto, please, this story is more than enough worthy of being serialized in Jump, much better than some current popular series that bored one to the utmost extend.
