Funimation describes the story:
Forget about homework and pop quizzes. The students of Class 3E have a far more important assignment: kill their teacher before the end of the year! A tentacle-d sensei that moves at Mach 20 is out to conquer the classroom after destroying seventy percent of the moon. In addition to reading, writing, and arithmetic, the murderous monster behind the lectern will teach his students everything he knows about the assassination game. Should some eager beaver prove to be a quick study in killing, he or she will save Earth from extinction – and collect a hefty reward. But they'd better take some serious notes while class is in session because their slaughtering sensei has eight deadly tentacles just waiting to wreak havoc on humanity!
The company will also launch Broadcast Dubs for Death Parade, Tokyo Ghoul √A, The Rolling Girls, World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman, Kamisama Kiss 2, Absolute Duo, Yuri Kuma Arashi, Yona of the Dawn, and Maria the Virgin Witch.
Funimation launched its first two Broadcast Dubs, Psycho-Pass 2 and Laughing Under the Clouds, in November after premiering both shows with subtitles in October. The company plans to produce a final English dub after the Broadcast Duband before the home video release of each show.
