| Assassination Classroom: An anime well worth your time
And like that it's over the two seasons of Assassination Classroom are behind me and though I believe the quality dipped I can confidently say I miss it already.

Now I'm "That guy" who wants to like anime but generally struggles. I like darker stuff and avoid the cutesy stuff which seems to make up most of the anime available. For that reason I've genuinely struggled to find both series & movies to watch.

On this occasion against my better judgement I watched the two Assassination Classroom live action movies first and was really quite blown away with how good they were. I figured the anime would be a let down by comparison and I'm still on the fence as to which is truly better.

Assassination Classroom is a beautiful intricate storyline with real depth and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Sadly a large chunk of season 2 feels like filler and that really damaged it but it returned to form in it's final few episodes all leading the incredible finale.

Without a doubt this is heavily underrated as many people I've spoken to have never heard of it. It's well woven, thought provoking and powerful as well as genuinely funny in places.

One odd thing is it's tone, it's so inconsistent. It is fairly cutesy, in places is ridiculously so and yet it can switch on a dime and get really quite dark.

I am so very glad that I experienced the series as it was certainly a memorable one and one that will stay with me.

The Good:

Amazing storyline

Powerful messages

Very well written

Devastatingly good finale

Great characters

The Bad:

Cheesy soundtrack

Some over the top anime tropes

A lot of filler in season 2

Things I Learnt From This Series:

The Japanese are capable of producing something involving tentacles and school girls without blending them in a dirty way

I'm going to miss Koro-sensei and the e-class *Sadface*
