What I expected: A fun little diddy about an alien like creature turned teacher who helps some down and out kids gain many life skills and confidence. Not only do they try to save the world, but they unite together and realize that they’re actually worth something.
It’s going to be awesome and I’m incredibly bias though since I love the manga and Koro-sensei.
How it really was: If 70% of the moon was destroyed, then there would be absolute chaos in the world. Absolute chaos. Like, people dying and tons of natural disasters happening. The fact that everyone is okay so far is scientifically impossible.
Ignoring all that, let’s talk about the show. I thought it was much better than the special that I accidentally watched and thought was the first episode. I was nervous about the animation, especially after that special, but it was quite good. The comedy didn’t feel forced and the plot was smooth. It was a great start to the series!
Overall: I liked it. I liked it a lot, but I think that special really helped me get over my fears about Assassination Classroom. When I thought it was the first episode, I wrote a full rant about it. Now that I know it isn’t and that the first episode was actually quite good, I’m relieved. Any worry that I had before is now out the window.
Can’t wait to see more!
