Assassination Classroom is unique.That's the word to describe the manga.It draws you in and keeps you there.

A super-being destroys a large part of the moon and then becomes a teacher.If that doesn't make you curious, I don't know what will.

It's very funny, the art is well done, and the setting of the story in particular(a school which discriminates against students who don't perform well) is refreshing.The manga hits you hard with the realism in relation to the education system.The characters are done fine.You can see the development happening gradually.

Overall, it's a fun and refreshing manga to read.This is one of the few mangas that don't read more

Assassination Classroom is possibly the most unique shounen/comedy/action story I have ever seen in either anime or manga. Despite it's somewhat slow start and very peculiar setup, this manga is executed very well with good pacing and astonishing character development despite the large cast.

As for the story, it is about an unfortunate group of third year middle schoolers at a prestigious school. They are "Class E" which is full of the idiots, delinquents, and other people who didn't fit into the other four classes. Their class is used as an example for the other students about what happens if you don't do well in school read more

After constantly putting off reading this manga i have finally caught up.Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is a very popular manga among teens in japan that is always in the top 10 of weekly shounen jump and so i wondered what was so good about it and after having read it i can say the popularity is well deserved.Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is different from the standard shounen series the entire concept of middle scholars having to kill their homeroom teaching or else he will blow up the planet in a year is something you don't see in shounen.The relationship between the students and the teacher koro sensei is peculiar read more

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is a very unique shounen/comedy/action manga that has managed to make me reconsider about the combination of the said genres. I never go for such manga since I prefer to read an actual story with an intriguing plot etc. I'd rather watch comedy than read it most of the times. But this manga has definitely captured my attention.

The story is pretty simple to follow, since there's just one crucial plot point you need to remember from the beginning (although, I can assure you that you won't forget it, as it is mentioned more times than I read more

Manga: GTO
GTO and Ansatsu Kyoushitsu not only feature a teacher as a major main character but also what goes inside the classroom can be quite humorous with the amount of gags and themes. The main male protagonist teacher their students with some unusual methods although they are genuine about their roles. There is a large amount of focus on characterization in both series when we find out about the students as well. Do note that Ansatsu Kyoushitsu portrays supernatural elements by adding unnatural events with assassination as a theme as well. GTO on the other hand has more realism.

Manga: Kamen Teacher
Both revolve around scarily strong teachers who are targeted by their students.

Manga: Denpa Kyoushi
If there's one word to describe Denpa Kyoushi and Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, then 'intense' is what comes to mind first hand.

Both series has a teacher character that is not your so ordinary professor in class. Rather, they have absurd ideas and are well known for their accomplishments. Also, expect action, comedy, and drama to ensure in a school life setting as it's where both series takes place.

Manga: Gintama
Ansatsu Kyoushitsu and Gintama has different premises but they have an ability to attract the readers with their appeal of humor. Both series' main male protagonists has strange habits that are very amusing to watch. Throughout the story, we learn more about them and the relationship connections they build with others. They also show phenomenal skills in certain fields that are beyond human comprehension. Both series are also known for their goofy dialogues but also accomplishes its goal to entertain. There are also serious moments with the overlay of their storytelling though.

Manga: Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
Different premise but both have a similar feeling when it comes to its characters. In fact, both series have a colorful cast of characters that all attend classes for a variety of reasons. The main male protagonist has some influence throughout both series and often gets involved with events relating with other characters. There is a decent amount of comedy present with its dialogues and character interactions. Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom) has an additional element of supernatural while Yankee-kun to Megane-chan (Mr. Delinquent and Miss Glasses) adapts more of a slice of life tone. Yet, both series has a goal relating to their premise.

Manga: Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan
Kenshin and Koro-sensei were destructive monsters in the past, but in present day, changed themselves to help the people around them.
However, their lives are targeted by people from their past as well as new enemies made in the present.
The supporting characters in both series learn from and are influenced by the aforementioned protagonists and have their own battles to face.
An important theme in both series is an emphasis on not killing but disabling your opponent in order to defend yourself and those important to you.
