It’s time to see Koro-sensei in a whole new light!
Yesterday, the official Asassination Classroom anime website updated with a new visual for Koro-sensei Q! (Koro Teacher Quest). The image features Nagisa, Kaede, and Karma in the foreground, as Koro-sensei looms in the background.
The series will be a continuation of the Koro-sensei Q! short film that opened with Assassination Classroom The Movie: 365 Days last Saturday. The show was originally announced after the film’s screening.
Koro-sensei Q! is an ongoing fantasy comedy manga by Kizuku Watanabe and illustrator Jō Aoto. The series began publication in Shueisha’s Saikyō Jump in October 2015. The first compiled volume hit retailers on July 4.
Yusei Matsui’s original Assassination Classroom manga ran in Weekly Shōnen Jump from July 2012 through March 2016. 21 collected volumes were released, with the final book hitting stores on July 4. An anime adaptation, plus two live-action film adaptations of the title were produced.
The first season of Assassination Classroom kicked off on January 9, 2015, and ran for 22 episodes. The second season began airing on January 7. Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) helmed both seasons at studio Lerche. Kazuaki Morita (Fate/Prototype, Arpeggio of Blue Steel) provided character designs for the project, while Makoto Uezu (Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Is This a Zombie?) wrote the scripts.
57 episodes, plus an OVA were produced by the time the final credits rolled. FUNimation currently holds the rights to Assassination Classroom, and offers it on their FunimationNow streaming platform. Compilation film Assassination Classroom The Movie: 365 Days opened in Japanese theaters on Saturday.
Funimation describes the series as:
Class 3E is about to begin their second semester! And while some things have changed, the class assignment is still the same: kill their teacher before the end of the year! Easier said than done since Koro Sensei’s made it clear he won’t go down without a fight. Will these students be able to take down the tentacled monster that moves at Mach 20 before he can destroy the world?
