The 12th Weekly Shounen Jump issue of the year, which will go on sale on February 22, has announced that the manga Ansatsu Kyoushitsu will end its serialization in the magazine's 16th issue. That issue is scheduled to be released in March 2016.

The school action series drawn by Yuusei Matsui has been publishing since 2012. (Debut issue of Weekly Shounen Jump pictured.) It placed first in the 2014 Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga is Amazing!) rankings among male readers. The series currently has 17 volumes and more than 20 million copies in print.

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu's popular Kyoto field trip story was first adapted as an anime special for Jump Super Anime Tour 2013. A complete TV anime adaptation with a new production team and voice cast aired in the first half of 2015, and a second season began airing this past January.

The first of two live-action film adaptations opened in theaters in March 2015, earning 2.77 billion yen as the year's tenth highest-grossing domestic film according to data by the Motion Picture Producers Association of Japan. The second live-action film is scheduled to open in theaters on March 25.

Cramming the rest of the manga into the second season of the anime is totally doable. It's an action series after all, and it'll go by a lot faster on screen. Things like Korosensei's back-story took several chapters in the manga, but they could do it in a few episodes in anime-form (Nagisa even stated in the manga that it only took half an hour to tell the whole story). Same with the Shinigami arc -- a lot of it could easily be condensed.

How I think it'll play out:


It's better than them trying to drag things out and make everything take twice as long as it needs to, especially when Ansatsu is as action-packed as it is. Plus, in terms of business, it makes sense -- they'll save a hell of a lot more money this way than if they made a season 3.

I was upset when I first heard about it but after trying to rationalise it, I can see what they're doing. I still believe they'll make a good adaptation, since it's been great so far. Sure, they leave out some of the more comedic moments, but in a way it flows better. They're trying to make it an action series through and through (with some comedy still here and there). I'll take it.

Anyway, no matter what happens, all I ask is that Karasuma and Irina end up together. I don't know why, but I ship them so fucking hard. I thought Karma/Nagisa would be my favourite ship of the series, but nope... it's fucking Karasuma/Irina.
if that the order they will adapt this then it will be perfect

That's terrible! There's still quite a bit of material to go on, but judging by the pace the 2nd season is already going at, it's not that much of a surprise. I bet they will leave out a lot of stuff.

Wow! I would never imagine that a plot like that could last this long. Props to the mangaka for somehow keeping his readers interested in this series for 4 whole years.

Even though I'm glad that we'll actually be getting an ending (so rare for manga adaptions) I don't like that they'll be skipping episodes.

With just a total of 25 ep? I can't see it as a good thing despite they can jump around it.

So S3 should be able to cover all of it, right?
if they decide to have a season 3

they can skip complete arcs and go straight to the ending in season 2
i knew it

no way they would have invested in a season 3 after the manga ended

I am very surprised that Shueisha let's go of such a good going series if I remember it right Ansatsu kyoushitsu was last year the third best selling manga in japan.

Better to end it than loosing steam. I was reading the manga, and I'm glad to know I can see a conclusion to this!

I'm really sad to see it go, even though I only started following the manga in 2014, I've been waiting every week for a new chapter, it became the manga that I looked forward the most.
But I know that the end will not be a disappointing one, and this manga will be forever one of my favorites :3
And will also be waiting for a new work of Matsui-sensei ^^

I would be sad to see it end, but I'm glad the author isn't dragging the series out for longer than it needs to be. Now seems like the right time to end it.

I enjoyed the series, but IMO, it never reached the heights of the author's previous series, Neuro. I'll still be sad to see it go, though.

Yassssss maybe this means we'll get the whole thing in an anime soon enough.

Feb 19, 2016 7:41 PM by Protaku

NOOOO!!! Well, was expecting this to happen because of the recent chapters.

Good. I don't have money to spend on mangas anymore *cries*

Sadly this series was never as good as it was expected to be.

Knew this day was coming soon. It has been such a rollercoaster, I'm sad to see it end. Though I'm glad they're aren't dragging it out any longer than it needs to be.

the manga art is kind of sloppy, warning! (especially if you watched the anime first)


How is this manga for a newbie?
I'd like the story and I'm not into manga but I wanna try with this one..

The art is a bit more sketchy and unrefined than some veteran mangaka, and personally I like the anime's art much better, but if you get used to it, or like it, reading the manga shouldn't be a problem at all. It's not super heavy on the dialogue either.

If you're just starting out manga, definitely start series you already enjoy. All in all, go for it! If it doesn't appeal to you, you can always try for other series!
