Assassination classroom – the end is near

assassin

We have approached the 10th episode of Assassination Classroom, and now it seems to be fitting to have some reflection on a show that i have been following for almost 3 months.

Here’s something disappointing to begin with,

  • Almost all anime this season began with a high note and could not maintain the pace throughout.
  • About halfway point, most shows became stale or boring, relative to the first two epsiodes
  • A lot of tv trope and cliche

First off, earlier i expressed a lot of interest and praises for this anime. But, I think i have to change my view point. In the start, the idea was fresh and interesting but as the anime goes on, you kinda see how it might end and you hope that this will not be happening but as the show creeps nearer and nearer to the end. It feels like it will end in a very bad way. Overall, the idea is fresh. Which is probably the best thing i can say about this anime.

Honestly, i thought i would have a lot to say about this anime but as i typed, i am struggling to word my feelings. This meant that although this show is ok and could improve, my mind is probably giving up trying to give suggestions to improve it. I think this is a classic case of “I don’t give a fuck anymore”

Here’s my prediction

  • Koro sensei will not die to assassination.
  • The students will fail to kill him and they will probably die.
  • Koro sensei kills himself or goes outer space.

Really loving this cheerful Assassination classroom

It will be hard to not call this show a slice of life (with a twist of everything else not related), so the whole idea is a monster aka our lovable GTO (Great Teacher Octopus) aka Koro sensei destroyed 70% of the moon and will destroy earth next year. However, he made a promise to be a teacher for a year before destroying earth and also, made a deal in that if any of his students managed to kill in before they graduate (they are in their final year), he will not destroy earth.

Magically, there’s a special material that cuts up Koro sensei but to humans, the material feels like rubber. Of course if you think only at this point, the anime do not make any more sense than a cow trying to type on a keyboard, you will definitely enjoy this anime. There are many funny moments in this anime, and so far 3 episodes in and i am really loving it. But was tweeting the other day about how i was enjoying it,

but a bad news came in from Tallon , follow @TKarrde23

My heart sank a bit because this show is so good. Then i decided to dig around to find out why. Came across this tweet here, follow @ansatsu_anime

This one of the those times where i know its time to dig up my old japanese books and start relearning it just so i can read japanese twitter again.. >..> So i continued to look around and it wasn’t too difficult to get english news regarding it so,

The update on 23rd Jan 2015 at crunchyroll says

While no explanation given, many fans are assuming it is because of the current hostage situation by the Islamic State group. Three days ago, the militant group posted a video online to give the Japanese government a 72-hour deadline to pay a $200 million ransom for two Japanese hostages. In the video, a masked member of the group was holding a knife and intimidating the hostages and viewers with it.

Which is even more concerning but another update on the 24th Jan 2015 by Yomiuri Simbun says

Fuji TV’s Public Relation Section confirms the reason of the cancellation is a scene that a character is swinging a knife to kill a monster in the episode.

 

Lastly, anime news network kinda hit the last nail in the coffin,

The official Twitter account for the Assassination Classroom TV animeannounced on Friday that the Fuji TV broadcast of the third episode has been delayed due to “various circumstances.” The announcement also notes that future updates about the broadcast of the anime will be posted on the anime’s official website.

Actually after digging around, i have 2 conclusion,

  1. Sounds like this anime future is very uncertain, possibly going to be taken out and will only be in blu-ray/dvd, maybe.
  2. I have no idea what the fuck is going on anymore.

So, i guess i shall wait and see? 😦

Assassination classroom and Death parade – first impression

Assassination classroom

This anime is really funny shit slice of life and god knows what else is in it! Having watched the first episode, i was like “I WILL FUCKING CONTINUE TO WATCH THIS”. Also nothing in this anime makes any sense. I guess this type of anime is “my type” of shows, after all if i wanted “logic”, i would just read a textbook or bible (depending on what you believe). The OP and ED is great too and really fitting too!. Is funny how sometimes only watching the first episode of an anime, it’ll be enough to go all “Hnnnnnggg!” or “FUCK YES!!”.. Will continue to post after watching more to see if i am right about this.

Death Parade

Don’t let the super sentai and cheerful looking screenshot deceive you, this anime is fucking dark. Think of bleach + a bar (or the bartender anime, otherwise a place that serves alcohol) + yugioh, all messed up into one anime. So the idea is that, couples that die at the same time (this is spoilers, although they explained the idea of the show in the first episode) gets to come to this place, a judgement zone basically. This will decide who goes to heaven or hell and you have to play a game as well. Not sure if i would want to see the dark side of humanity every episode, but heck, i think i might just continue to watch because i saw a cute girl at the end… XD
