The first 2017 issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that the Koro Teacher Quest anime series will start streaming on December 23. This adaptation of Jō Aoto and Kizuku Watanabe's Koro-sensei Q! (Koro Teacher Quest!) manga will run on the dTV, UULA, and other services.
Watanabe and Aoto began the Koro-sensei Q! manga, which is a spinoff of Yusei Matsui's Assassination Classroom manga, in Shueisha's Saikyō Jump magazine in October 2015. In Koro-sensei Q!, Koro-sensei is a demon king in a world of swords and sorcery. Shueisha published the manga's first compiled volume on July 4.

The new anime series of Koro Teacher Quest will serve as a continuation to the anime film short now in theaters. Weekly Shonen Jump will reveal new information about the series in future issues.
