This year's 51st issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Jō Aoto and Kizuku Watanabe's Koro-sensei Q! (Koro Teacher Quest!) manga will get an anime series. The manga is a spinoff of Yusei Matsui's Assassination Classroom manga.
Watanabe and Aoto began the Koro-sensei Q! spinoff series in Shueisha's Saikyō Jump magazine in October 2015. In the manga Koro-sensei is a demon king in a world of swords and sorcery. Shueisha published the manga's first compiled volume on July 4.
An anime based on the manga (pictured at right) is screening alongside the Ansatsu Kyōshitsu: 365-Nichi no Jikan (Assassination Classroom The Movie: 365 Days) anime compilation film. The films will open in Japan on Saturday.
The new anime series of Koro Teacher Quest will serve as a continuation to the anime version that will screen in theaters. Weekly Shonen Jump will reveal new information about the series in future issues.
Fuji Creative's English website had previously listed the Koro Teacher Quest anime with 12 10-minute episodes.
The first 22-episode television anime series based on the Assassination Classroom manga 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.
