As confirmed during our panel at MCM Scotland Comic Con yesterday, we are happy to announce that we (Anime Limited) have licensed the series Assassination Classroom for the UK.
Forget about homework and pop quizzes. The students of Class 3E have a far more important assignment: kill their teacher before the end of the year!
A tentacle-d sensei that moves at Mach 20 is out to conquer the classroom after destroying seventy percent of the moon. In addition to reading, writing, and arithmetic, the murderous monster behind the lectern will teach his students everything he knows about the assassination game. Should some eager beaver prove to be a quick study in killing, he or she will save Earth from extinction – and collect a hefty reward. But they’d better take some serious notes while class is in session because their slaughtering sensei has eight deadly tentacles just waiting to wreak havoc on humanity!
“I’m a very big fan of the Assassination Classroom manga so when I first heard this was getting an anime adaptation I was very excited” says Andrew Partridge, president of Anime Limited. “Another element that got me excited for the series was that Seiji Kishi was the director. He previously directed Persona 4: The Animation which I thoroughly enjoyed watching.”
We can confirm that we will be bringing this to both Blu-ray and DVD to the UK in 2016. More details will be forthcoming.
Though this concludes our string of announcements during the MCM Scotland Comic Con weekend, stay tuned to our site this coming week as we’ll likely have an announcement or two to share with you.
