posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday July 18, Anime Limited will release the first DVD volume of Assassination Classroom, carrying the first 11 episodes of the first season. (The Blu-ray is already available.) Viz Media has described 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!
Jun Fukuyama will play Koro-sensei, Tomokazu Sugita plays Tadaomi Karasuma and Shizuka Itou plays Irina Jelavic.
Seiji Kishi (Persona 4 The Animation, Danganronpa The Animation, Devil Survivor 2 The Animation) directed the anime at the studio Lerche. Kazuaki Morita (Persona 4 The Animation, Danganronpa The Animation, Arpeggio of Blue Steel) designed the characters, and Makoto Uezu (Danganronpa The Animation, Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Is This a Zombie?, School Days) wrote the scripts.
