After reading Assassination Classroom I kinda now want more school assassination series and this sounds very interesting.

Same as Majestic Prince, not even the first volume is out! How about letting manga that HAVE been going on that are really good get an anime? Like Itsuwaribito?! Eh?! Then you'll have enough source material for even 26 episodes!

The story is set at Myōjō Academy, a private girls' boarding school. All the students in the 10th year's Kurogumi class are assassins with one target, Haruka Ichinose. Tokaku Azuma is a recent transfer student who is also targeting Ichinose, but she gradually develops feelings for Ichinose.


Combine with the fact that Sunao Minakata did some really stylish Touhou yuri doujins and designs for that Touhouvania doujin game, I'd say this worth keeping an eye out!

...the red-haired girl is Haruka, right?

Well, it's got me more than curious enough to take a look. It's a testament to the strength of a strong hook. It kind of sounds like Assassination Classroom and kind of sounds like Kill la Kill, too.

Any anime without a male lead is really interesting to me.
Looks very promising!!

Now that you mention it, that'll be a downer if this ended only as an OAD to package with the manga. Sad

That art in the article is awesome.

Loved the character designs for 00 which was the first I'd ever seen Yun Kouga's work.

I hope this is cool as it sounds.

I'm pretty sure that Touhouvania's art is by banpai akira

Sounds interesting. Almost sounds like material for a live action flick. I may give this a flick So I'll either wait for the reviews once the series starts.
