Assassination Classroom (Ansatsu Kyoushitsu)

Plot: An alien monster that has blasted a hole in the moon is now the homeroom teacher for a class of problem students. The government is offering a hefty sum to anyone who can assassinate the monster before it does the same to Earth -- and the task has fallen to class 3-E! (Definitely something a bit off the beaten path -- B+)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: Not so much a question of the acting itself, but I'm not a fan of some of the casting choices. (A-)

Music: Not outstanding for the better or worse (B-)

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive/sexual material, blood

Other: The comedy/action manga has only recently been released as an anime series, and I've mainly been reading the manga. It's weird, but in a satisfyingly fun way. (The antics of the alien/monster (dubbed "Koro-sensei") are a show in themselves.)

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 3/5
