Assassination Classroom takes attendance on Viz Manga


Can you kill Koro-sensei?

Whenever I take informal polls as to which manga I should start covering in the wake of Naruto's closure, one of the most common recommendations I get - besides One Piece, of course - is Yusei Matsui's Assassination Classroom

I'll admit I haven't paid much attention to this new Jump darling - it's one of the highest-rated manga on their slate - but Viz has just taken away one of my excuses for not giving it a look - the first volume is out now in both print and digital editions. Viz promises to release new print volumes on a bi-monthly basis under its Shonen Jump Advanced imprint. An anime adaptation is scheduled to air next season.

I guess I'm going to have to give it a look now, though the premise involving an alien villain coming to Earth to take over a typical high school classroom in a bid to "teach" the kids how to kill it sounds quite inventive.
