The super lifeform responsible for this catastrophe is a strange tentacled creature that can slink around at supersonic Mach 20 speeds.

The students have until graduation to assassinate the teacher, or it will destroy Earth as well.

The event anime special adapts the original manga's popular segment about the field trip to ancient Kyoto.

Note: I've read the manga of Assassination Classroom prior to watching this special. Reading the manga is not necessary at all before watching this and if anything, this may just make you want to read it as well. This does skip a little ahead to the Kyoto school trip but it's not that far into the story.

That said, this is a good 30 minute special episode that's main purpose is just to promote the manga. It begins with an initial setup of the story to clear a few things up for people who have not read the manga. For anyone reading this review who hasn't read more

Assassination: Classroom is one of my top manga for sure. Those who mentioned this skips ahead are correct. But the average viewer will be able to watch it just fine without any trouble.

This is a combination of slapstick comedy, a tiny bit of tragedy, and positive "we can do it" thinking, and it works so well. I love how it can be hilariously funny at one moment, then make you feel for the characters the next, making you want to say, "You can do it!"

The positive feel of the story really can make a bad day better; often, I've had read more

Let me tell you something as someone who watched and enjoyed the TV series that aired in 2015: Assassination Classroom is a great series, that is wildly enjoyable. I would highly recommend watching the series (linked on the MAL profile). I would watch this special episode if you can't get enough of the series.

Okay so this was made before the series and it essentially is a shortened version of episodes 7 and 8. Personally, those are some of my favorite episodes in the series, so this special is appealing.Anyway, lets begin:

STORY: 7
