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

[SPOILER FREE REVIEW - UP TO CHAPTER 30]

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

Assassination Classroom is somewhat of a unique shounen which blends comedy and action really well.To me this manga is a break from the more mainstream shounen manga and it really is a fun and interesting read.

Story
The story to say the least is really weird.The misfits(Class 3-e) of Kunugigaoka Middle School must kill their new homeroom teacher (an octupus creature of unknown origin or as the students call him Koro-sensei) before he blows up the earth in one year and also become world class assassins in the process .For the most part the stories really focuses on the development of class 3-e developing into assassins read more

If you are the kind of individual who enjoys tentacles of comedy penetrating your funny bone, then Assassination Classroom is the manga for you. It has everything you could want from a shonen manga: a unique art style, likeable characters, and, most importantly, it manages to maintain an essentially perfect balance between comedy and action. Unlike other comedy manga, which can often come across as being too Japanese, Assassination Classroom’s comedy is generally much more accessible, relying more on character-based comedy than wordplay (although wordplay does feature quite heavily in the beginning). 



Assessing the characters in Assassination Classroom is a difficult exercise. It took more read more

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.
Both revolve around scarily strong teachers who are targeted by their students.
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.

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.
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.
If there's one word to describe Medaka Box and Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, it would be peculiar. Peculiar in the sense of being unconventional concepts adapted into a story. Both series follows a small yet colorful cast of characters at school. However, as the story belongs more complex, the characters gets involved with various conflicts that interconnects the fate of the premise. There is a lot of comedy, drama, and bits of action involved for both series. In Medaka Box, there are superpowers while Ansatsu Kyoushitsu relies on creativity through assassination means. Recommended for fans of stylistic shounen.
