Review: Assassination Classroom, Vol. 01

21412045 Assassination Classroom, Vol. 01 by YĆ«sei Matsui
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The students in Class 3-E of Kunugigaoka Junior High have a new teacher: an alien octopus with bizarre powers and unlimited strength, who's just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth - unless they can kill him first!

Meet the would-be assassins of class 3-E: Sugino, who let his grades slip and got kicked off the baseball team. Karma, who's doing well in his classes but keeps getting suspended for fighting. And Okuda, who lacks both academic and social skills, yet excels at one subject: chemistry. Who has the best chance of winning that reward? Will the deed be accomplished through pity, brute force or poison...? And what chance does their teacher have of repairing his students' tattered self-esteem?

I don't know why, but I loved this! Especially Karma XD crazy as he is! Beautiful art, strong characters, and interesting plot. It's nice to find another 5 star read, and I will definitely get the next two at the library tomorrow! I really enjoyed this and quickly fell in love with the characters, even the teacher! I can't wait to see what happens, and plan to enjoy it all the way! I love seeing all the creative ideas the kids come up with, and I an interested to see how Koro sensai handles things. I even laughed out loud at one point!
