I’m sorry to say this, but I found this to be quite the weak season finale. I don’t even want to dedicated too much of my time by writing a big post about this episode. I simply expected a whole lot more from this and I’ll tell you why.
First off; Koro-sensei, as expected, escaped and was just fine in the end. We all saw it coming and we accepted it a long time ago. But what I simply cannot accept is that those students were never in any real danger, making the last few episodes pretty pointless. It just makes it very hard to takes things serious.
What also pissed me off is how nobody wanted to see Nagisa end up as a killer. I mean, he is being trained as an assassin… What do you think he’ll do after that long road? Become a florist? Assassins assassinate people. That’s their purpose. They kill. You train those brats to become perfect killing machines but you’re not allowing them to kill? It renders the entire story quite pointless. I hope the second season will make up for that.Read More
I knew it. I knew this would happen eventually. They focussed so much on it that I knew that it wouldn’t be the last time we’d see that insane character. Impressive that they could find a way to make that character appear even more unstable than before.
I’ll keep it short and sweet; that insane instructor that Nagisa defeated ended up being the mastermind behind the poison attack. He even hired those assassins to amuse himself. He completely lost whatever was of his mind after Nagisa beat him at his own game. Now he’s back and looking for revenge. He even blew up the suitcase with the antidote in it.
None of this, however, has anything to do with a good ending, has it? I see no good ending coming yet. Honestly… How are they planning on ending this? Koro-sensei is still in that ball form and now they’ve got to deal with that insane maniac that plans on burying Koro-sensei and a student in a heap of anti-alien BB’s and covering them up with cement. Not the ending that I had in mind…Read More
And once again it just dawned on me; only two episodes left before Assassination Classroom ends and we are still going nowhere by the looks of things. I already started digging about any and all information relating to a second season.
Everyone is still in the middle of finding the antidote for the poison that half of Class E has consumed a few weeks ago. We’re there now. The main story isn’t being tackled right now. We are watching some of the students show their assassination-related skills, and that is perfectly fine; I like the action. But I cannot help but look ahead at this point.
I hope that the students obtain the antidote next week so that we can have a good (season) finale that befits this great show. On one hand I want to see what those students can do in life threatening situations, but the desire to have at least some of my questions answered before this thing ends overwhelms everything else.
The thing is; Koro-sensei is still in that ball form. People cannot reach him and he cannot move. The main objective was to kill him in order to prevent him from destroying the earth. He refuses to be killed by anyone or anything other than his beloved students. All this has to be done during the next two episodes. Either that or there has to be a different, plausible ending that doesn’t stray too far from the main story. I mean, I don’t want to find out that the students have grown too attached to him and can’t kill him and vice versa. As touching as that may be for some, I would absolutely hate that. I guess I’m a little bit nervous about the ending.Read More
Ah, okay, now that’s more like it. I was afraid that they would waste more time on Koro-sensei’s current condition. I still think that a tank of liquid anti-alien juice would’ve been more than enough to finally take care of him.
No, this time it seems that the students are finally the target for once. It’s always been Koro-sensei. He has been targeted by the kids, professional assassins and various armies and private security companies up until now. Now it seems that Class E has become a target, which kind of renders this whole story pointless, doesn’t it? I mean, Koro-sensei will only allow himself to get killed by his students, which is why he teaches them, yet there are people that are now going after the only people that could kill Koro-sensei. It’s almost as though they want to die.
I’m kind of anxious to see Nagisa in action again. All of the students have weaknesses and strengths that they need to take into account. I’m aware. But hey, Nagisa is still the most interesting students. He’s patient, thorough and talented. I would love to see him turn into a murdering badass, which makes me sound like a complete psychopath. You’ll just have to believe me when I tell you that I’m not.
Anyway, that poison user has been taken care of by their beloved hand-to-hand combat teacher. Now it’s time for that red-headed brat to take care of another assassin. I am looking forward to that? Hell yeah. Nagisa does not kill head-on. This guy, however, doesn’t mind attacking head-on. I’m looking forward to seeing how that’ll turn out.Read More
Okay, better… Much better. It’s a damn shame that I’ve come down with a tremendous headache and have to make this post short and sweet before diving into bed. Some days are hardly worth it, you know?
So Class E decided to execute their plan. They seemed to have been working on it for some time and things went pretty smoothly. They made use of a lot of his weaknesses in order to push him into a corner where he couldn’t use his insane speed to escape. You could say he dug his own grave for promising not to go anywhere.
They trapped him, tricked him and successfully forced him to use his trump card; his last defence. A mode where he traps himself inside a little indestructible ball. He cannot move whilst inside and people can do whatever they want with him during that period. Sounds like a poor defence to me? Just throw that ball inside a container filled with melted anti-alien liquid.Read More
Another short post incoming. Assassination Classroom is really doing badly again. They throw in a really epic episode every now and then and that just gets followed up by mediocre episodes that don’t really matter in the end.
Did I really want to see an episode where one student tried to bait Koro-sensei with a mountain of dirty magazines? Hell no. What would be the point of something as stupid as that? It wasn’t even funny. The fact that he was dressed as a beetle, the animals that they were initially hunting, made things even more confusing.
I should have known. The episode started out really crappy and that’s when I should’ve known that it was going to be a waste of my time. Did they really expect us to laugh or to think that Koro-sensei is weak when it comes to porn? Come on… let’s cut down on the low level comedy and focus more on the action.Read More
Well, this certainly was a very weak episode. Yeah, sure, I am glad that things went this way, but damn; it was hard to stay interested somehow. I am surprised I managed to make it through the episode without looking away too much.
There is very little that I want to say about this episode. No point in writing up a big post. I mean, Class E had their little victory even though they kind of lost when you look at the big picture. Yes, they won that little bet and they even defeated the school’s number one in math I believe, but that’s all there is to it. That is seriously all.
If I understood correctly; class A won the most points overall. You could say that class E won the bet by a so-called “technical knock-out” (boxing term). There’s nothing wrong with that, but the build-up was far too much for what we eventually got to see. No need to focus on them doing those tests. Five minutes would’ve been more than enough to wrap it up, not an entire episode. But hey, that’s just one idiot’s opinion.Read More
You know, I actually saw this little twist coming. This cocky principal of theirs has been a thorn in class E’s eyes for some time now, and since that school is supposedly one of the very best, I could not help but wonder if he had children of his own.
And what happens a couple of weeks after I started wondering that? That’s right. It appears that he has a little bastard of his very own. Not just any bastard either. His son is very much like him. He has a rotten personality that sees other people as tools to do his bidding. He manipulates them into doing whatever he wants them to do so that he can achieve his goals. I mean, the guy came up with the idea to rally the best students of class A and to tutor them as much as they can so that they can defeat class E in the stats and once again verify that the principal’s system seems to be working.
This won’t change. That’s how it’s always going to go in Assassination Classroom. They will continued to be challenged for some reason or other. This time it’s to prove that class A really is the best and that class E is the worst, although Gakushuu, the principal’s son, has an ulterior motive for this compaction; to find out class E’s secret.
He just wants to know about Koro-sensei, I guess. Either that or he’s just after full control. I don’t know. His old man is just like that; always watching for afar and always ready to intervene. They are like herpes; you just can’t shake them and when you do they are likely to come back. My god… Can things become even more annoying than this!?Read More
