Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A 2013 OVA based on the Shonen Jump manga Assassination Classroom.

Koro-sensei is a dangerous alien that has promised to destroy the world in one year. The governments of the world frustratingly tried to kill him but their methods failed again and again. Finally, they put the alien to teach high school students. No, this isn't a plan to make him feel pity for mankind. His students are tasked with the mission of killing him.

This OVA, however, is just a Breather Episode, involving the class going in a school trip with their teacher, having little to do with the overall main plot, that would be pretty hard to fit in such a short running time(31 minutes).

Directed by Keiji Gotou.

Tropes used in Assassination Classroom (2013 anime) include:

  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Koro-sensei default expression is this; he is also a alien that will destroy the world when the times come no matter what.
  • Crazy Prepared: Koro-sensei travel guide contain instructions about what to do in extremely specific situations, including feeling lonely by seeing couples bonding. It's also humongous.
