Assassination Classroom episode 14

Not a bad episode, but it certainly does not beat last week’s epic episode where we discovered that Nagisa-kun had some hidden assassination talent. Still, it’s always nice to see another character in the spotlight I suppose.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 14 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_06.05_[2015.04.25_23.22.07]I’m guessing that Koro-sensei has befriended all of his students now. I can’t think of one student that he hasn’t won over yet. All that was left was the class bully, whom he won over during this episode, which makes the story even weirder. He wants to be assassinated by his students that he befriended. Yeah right. His real objective will become clear in time.

But hey, those students learned that he doesn’t really go well with water. His mucus protects him from water to a point, but after that he becomes slow and somewhat vulnerable. Information like that is worth gold to someone like Nagisa, whom relies on accurate information to achieve his goals. It’s only a matter of time.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 14 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_19.01_[2015.04.25_23.22.22]What kind of bothers me is that Koro-sensei is still being very gentle with his so-called brother. That masked guy withdrew him from his class due to personal reasons, but now he shows up again and he expect Koro-sensei to go along with him and not harm him even though he’s not really his student right now. He’s just another freaky kid with killing intent and tentacles for hair. So, in theory at least, Koro-sensei shouldn’t have to worry about harming him, especially since he was really driven into a corner this time. I guess he just refuses to go back on his word (which might just be his biggest weakness).

Assassination Classroom episode 13

Epic! This episode was completely and totally epic. There are no other words to describe it. I thought that we would get another class E bashing episode, but this completely blew away all my expectations. Well done!

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 13 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.07_[2015.04.18_23.42.43]The episode started out very interestingly. All the students were practicing their close quarter’s combat techniques again with Karasuma-sensei and things got out of hand when our favourite blue-haired kid scared the daylights out of him for a split second. This alone was more than enough to keep me interested throughout the episode.

That’s when some big guy showed up that claimed to be their new teacher. He was supposedly instructed to turn those kids into ruthless killers as soon as possible. I’m not even going to mention his pointless and merciless methods. Let’s just say that his appearance brought to light a talented young assassin.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 13 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_13.06_[2015.04.18_23.42.59]You see, none of the students wanted him as a teacher. The guy was a monster. He hit students, came up with a ridiculous training schedule and even forced them to recognize him as their “father”. I’m not even going to explore whatever daddy issues that guy has. I’m just happy that Nagisa-kun got picked as a representative for his class and successfully managed to defeat that guy. That’s right, he got defeated by a student whose talents finally became clear to all of the teachers (and perhaps students). This was truly a great episode with a lot of awesome developments!

Assassination Classroom episode 12

I am going to keep this post short because I found this episode rather dull and because I am running out of time and because my RSI is once again killing me. It’s been one of those days, you know? I just want to go to bed and end the day.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 12 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_19.36_[2015.04.12_00.29.10]So Class E decided to go up against the elites in a baseball match. This is all very nice and all, but you’re doing something quite pointless. Yes, you’ve shown that you can beat those so-called elites at their own game, but at the end of the day that’s what it is; a game. Class E beat them at their own game but it won’t do much for them since it really was just a game.

In the end they will still be looked down upon. They will still have to endure many hardships and unfair situations because of that evil principal. And Koro-sensei will have to continue helping his students whenever they encounter yet a new situation where they are being looked down upon. That’s how this will be going for a little while longer.

Assassination Classroom episode 11

A new character, new mysteries and new possibilities. I have to admit that the latest character sure clears things up a little if you ask me. It answered quite a few questions that I’m sure a lot of other fans had for the past few weeks (or pretty much since the start).

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 11 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.59_[2015.03.28_23.56.20]So this new character shows up (in a rather flashy way) and things already get out of hand. In fact, he challenged Koro-sensei right away to a match after school. Of course, Koro-sensei, thinking he’s the fastest creature alive, agreed to that challenge because he thought he would win either way. That, if you ask me, is his biggest weakness. He automatically assumes he’ll win.

Still, things did not go completely his way. That new guy showed that he, too, had a few of those handy tentacles. That’s when Koro-sensei’s smile definitely disappeared. He was dodging and using all sorts of tricks in order to escape death. He only got away because he has more experience than that boy, otherwise things might not have ended so well for Koro-sensei.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 11 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.31_[2015.03.28_23.56.37]Anyway, we learned quite a few things. We learned that Koro-sensei and that buy were probably man-made life forms. That makes more sense than him being an alien somehow. I mean, yeah, he destroyed the moon, proving that he can travel through space, but branding him an alien would seem rather weird. No, but him being a man-made creature makes a little more sense. Let’s face it; humanity is always trying to destroy itself one way or another. Finding out that a group of scientists made some creature in some lab that then destroyed the moon sounds actually quite plausible.

Assassination Classroom episode 10

You know, the problem with Assassination Classroom is that they are always trying to keep things lively and interesting by doing the exact same thing over and over again. Most anime do it like this, but in Assassination Classroom it happens too often.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 10 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.11_[2015.03.22_00.16.44]I’m sure a lot of you have noticed already. Every time they try to keep things interesting and lively they do so by introducing a new character or two. It was the same with that teacher, with that red-haired kid, that computer and this time it’s going to be a couple of characters that seem to have some sort of a connection to Koro-sensei. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of the characters so far, but there’s a limit to how long this’ll last. You cannot keep introducing new characters just to keep things interesting. It gets out of hand quite easily.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 10 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.39_[2015.03.22_00.16.54]But hey, ignoring that ridiculous competition amongst teacher’s nonsense, I found it quite nice to see how Koro-sensei cares about his students by taking them on trips, looking after them and making sure that they get all the attention and support they need. It is still hard to believe that he plans to destroy the earth.

Nevertheless, I have a feeling that the following episode are going to tell us a bit more about that creature. We already got a hint a few weeks back about the possibility of Koro-sensei’s humanity at one point in time. Maybe those two new characters might shed some light about what he is or where he comes from.

Assassination Classroom episode 09

It’s a damn shame that I have to keep this post short because I am running out of time. I have had a hellish day. I haven’t sat still all day and all I want to do is close my eyes right now and sleep for a week. God I’m tired. I haven’t even seen this week’s Aldnoah yet. Saving that one for tomorrow.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 09 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_15.30_[2015.03.14_23.46.24]So they decided to add a new “student” to the story. It would’ve been a big boring and predictable if it were an actual student, but they decided to spice things up by making that student an A.I. killing machine that will continue to learn more about Koro-sensei in order to find a way and kill him before he destroys the earth.

You can say whatever you want, but a computer has a higher chance of success than a human. Humans make a lot of mistakes and are a lot slower, but those machines are all logical and do things based on their own calculations. That is why I have quite a bit of faith in his new “student”. That thing adds a new element of comedy to the story.

Assassination Classroom episode 08

I really wonder how much longer this school trip thing is going to continue. I really want to see more of Class E’s struggle to get to the very top. That principle needs to be put in his place, even if his plan is pretty good.

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 08 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_02.45_[2015.03.08_00.20.42]I don’t understand why more and more professional assassins are getting sent to help kill Koro-sensei. You won’t succeed. He sees almost everything coming and even if you use a professional sniper with a badass reputation, you’ll only end up feeding his ego because if these ridiculous stunts. He made it very clear that he’s only going to get killed by the students he’s currently teaching. And even that’s not guaranteed. He probably survives and explains why he threatened to destroy the earth for some personal reason. That’s probably how this is going to end, isn’t it?

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 08 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_14.00_[2015.03.08_00.21.02]But hey, I saw something a lot more interesting. We were given a hint that Koro-sensei might not be from outer-space after all. In fact, there’s a good chance that he might’ve been human at one point before some kind of experiment went horrible wrong of awesomely well. Either way, that really piqued my interest.

I think that the possibility that Koro-sensei might’ve been human at one point was definitely the most interesting part of this episode. I think it’s about time this class trip ends and things go back to normal, but a part of me hopes that this continues for just a little longer and that we’ll get to learn a bit more about Koro-sensei that way .

Assassination Classroom episode 07

Oh, okay… Not exactly the kind of episode I expected, but I suppose there were a few interesting scenes. And, unfortunately, a few disappointing once as well. I suppose that’s how it always goes, isn’t it?

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 07 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_08.06_[2015.03.01_00.27.10]So last week’s episode went by quickly and I was really surprised to see them go on a class trip so soon. I kept thinking about what the angle of it was. I mean, first those children are forced to make an unfairly modified test to make sure they get poor grades. Now they are sent to another part of the country on a field trip right after they finished their exams. One cannot help but to think about the real reason as to why they’ve been sent on that trip. There is always a reason, especially when class E is involved. I just can’t put my finger on it…

[Ohys-Raws] Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - 07 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_11.53_[2015.03.01_00.27.13]Anyway, some of the students got abducted by a small group of thugs and I immediately started to think about the idea of it. Where they ordered to do so? If so; what was the point of it all? I just find it a very strange twist in the story. Were those students just at the wrong place at the wrong time? Was it really all a coincidence?

There is only one thing that I know for sure; it’s a damn shame that Koro-sensei interfered. I would’ve liked to see those students solve it themselves without that alien showing up to solve it for them. They are being trained as killers for god’s sake; at least let them defend themselves against a group of thugs like that.
