Assassination Classroom Manga Gets 2nd Original Event Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 34th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that Yusei Matsui's Assassination Classroom manga is inspiring a second event anime at this year's Jump Special Anime Festa tour. The event anime will tell a "secret" story that did not appear in the original manga, and it will feature "that character and Koro-sensei…!?"
Viz Media will publish the first volume of the manga in North America in December. Viz Media describes the story:
A humorous and action-packed story about a class of misfits who are trying to kill their new teacher – an alien octopus with bizarre powers and super strength! The teacher has just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth – unless his students can destroy him first. What makes things more complicated is that he's the best teacher they've ever had!
Jump Special Anime Festa will visit six cities this year: Tokyo on November 9, Sapporo on November 15, Sendai on November 15, Osaka on November 16, Nagoya on November 16, and Fukuoka on November 16. The magazine is holding a random drawing for 6,390 pairs of tickets. The Tokyo stop will include stage events with the voice cast members.
The manga already inspired an event anime at last year's Jump Super Anime Festa. It is also inspiring a television anime series that will premiere next January, as well as a live-action film.
