Assassination Classroom is an action-packed Japanese anime series that premiered in 2013 and aired its last episode in 2016. The show was produced by FUNimation and is an adaptation of a manga series written by Yusei Matsui. Assassination Classroom follows the adventures of a group of middle school students who are tasked with assassinating an otherworldly creature that has taken over their classroom.

The creature they are tasked with assassinating is a smiley-faced, tentacled creature known as Koro-sensei. Koro-sensei is a powerful being that has the ability to move at Mach 20 (20 times the speed of sound) and is virtually indestructible. He is also a very good teacher, something that the students quickly discover, as he begins to teach them valuable life lessons and academic skills, despite their mission to eliminate him.

The show centers around the classroom's daily life as they work on their assassination mission, with Koro-sensei always staying just one step ahead of them. The students all have different motivations for attempting to assassinate Koro-sensei, ranging from a desire to save the world to a desire to be the top student in their class.

Throughout the show, the students attempt to utilize all of their skills, including weaponry, technology, and strategy, in order to defeat Koro-sensei. The students also develop unique bonds with Koro-sensei, and they begin to question whether they are truly capable of killing him, even if it means saving the world.

Despite the intense storyline, Assassination Classroom also incorporates many comedic elements, with Koro-sensei often playing tricks on the students and creating hilarious (and sometimes embarrassing) situations. The show also addresses some serious topics, such as bullying, child abuse, and mental illness, providing a well-rounded storyline.

Assassination Classroom features a talented voice cast, with Jun Fukuyama providing the voice of Koro-sensei, Mai Fuchigami as the voice of Nagisa Shiota, and Bryce Papenbrook as the voice of Nagisa's classmate, Soma Yukihira. The show has received critical acclaim for its strong storyline, well-developed characters, and unique concept.

One of the main themes of the show is the importance of education and the impact that a good teacher can have on students. Koro-sensei is an extraordinary teacher who is able to relate to his students, understand their strengths and weaknesses, and push them to be the best versions of themselves. Through Koro-sensei's teachings, the students begin to realize that there is more to life than just academic success.

Another theme of the show is the importance of teamwork and friendship. Although the students are all competing to be the one to assassinate Koro-sensei, they are forced to work together and rely on each other in order to succeed. The bonds they form are strong and lasting, and they learn to value each other beyond just their abilities as assassins.

Overall, Assassination Classroom is an exciting and dynamic anime that balances action, humor, and drama perfectly. With a talented voice cast, well-written storyline, and strong character development, it is no wonder that this show has become a favorite among anime fans. Whether you are a fan of action, comedy, or drama, there is something for everyone in this series.

Assassination Classroom is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (49 episodes). The series first aired on January 9, 2015.
