This year's 46th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing more plot details on Monday about the original story included in the Gekijōban Ansatsu Kyōshitsu: 365-Nichi no Jikan (Assassination Classroom The Movie: 365 Days) compilation anime film.

The original story takes place the day before the class reunion depicted at the end of the manga, seven years after the manga's climax. Yusei Matsui, the manga's creator, collaborated with the film's staff for the original story. The film's visual (seen bottom right) already hinted at the story, showing the character designs for Nagisa and Karma seven years after the manga's climax.

The official website previously streamed a teaser video for the film earlier this month.

Gekijōban Ansatsu Kyōshitsu: 365-Nichi no Jikan will screen in a limited screening event starting on November 19. The compilation film is screening alongside an anime adaptation of Jō Aoto and Kizuku Watanabe's Koro-sensei Q! (Koro Teacher Quest!) spinoff manga series.

Watanabe and Aoto began the Koro-sensei Q! spinoff series in Shueisha's Saikyō Jump in October 2015. In the manga Koro-sensei is a demon king in a world of swords and sorcery.

Studio Lerche, the television anime's staff, and the television anime's cast are all returning to work on both films.

The first 22-episode season of the Assassination Classroom anime premiered in Japan in January 2015, and the second season premiered in January 2016 and ended in July. The manga ended in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in March.

The original manga also inspired two live-action films, the second of which premiered in Japan on March 25.

Update: Corrected issue number of Weekly Shonen Jump.
