Ratings & Reviews
As serious as a story about students trying to kill their teacher before he destroys the world sounds, Assassination Classroom is very funny and heartwarming. If you're looking for a unique and original story, look no further. This is a manga you'll want to binge read all day.

So I already watched the anime, and it' pretty freakin' good! I even cried a bit at the end tbh, so I decided to pick up all the volumes that are already released. Basically it's about an alien-tentacled creature who is going to destroy the earth. Said creature is also the teacher of the end class in one of the most prestigious schools, hence the name assassination classroom. I'm gonna go ahead of myself here and say the anime is better even though i haven't read them all yet since it's basically the same, it's just that in the anime, you see them all come together. This opinion may or may not change as in continue reading.
This first volume covers the first three episodes of the anime. It's okay, although the anime is better. I recommend both though.
Love it. Own it. Wanna buy more of it.
I really love a nice refresher away from romance every now and then. This manga has just taken my heart for the students of Class E. It really give hope and an awesome imagination escape. Plus, I always tend to put them in a high school grade but no, they are middle schoolers which makes it that much more interesting. I want more.
A Must-Have Series

I've heard good things about this series, so I thought I'd give it a try. Suffice to say, I love it, its really good. It has a really interesting premise, and I absolutely love Koro Sensei, he's hilarious. If I had one nitpick, I'm not a huge fan of the design for the Nagisa, I know it's a guy, but he looks like a girl and it throws me off, but that's a minor thing. I definitely recommend this series, and I'm sure I'll be getting more soon.
A Solid (and funny) Start
This series starts out with a bang (literally.) Ugh. Sorry, that was soooo cliche. Anyway, it does a great job at introducing the main characters at an even pace as to not completely overwhelm you (which there are A LOT of characters in this series) and keeps you entertained by one of my favorite main characters (villain?) to date. If I had to knit pick this volume, it would be that they really dig their heels in and CONSTANTLY tell you the premise, almost to the point to where it becomes a mantra. But, given the oddness of the situation, it's not a terrible thing to be reminded of from time to time.
