While on the Class trip Kayano and Kanzaki have been abducted by students of another school and are being held captive in an unknown location. It is up to the students to rescue them. More assassins come in to try their hand at Koro Sensei. A sniper named Red Eye and an artificial intelligence named Ritsu. More assassins could mean a better chance of assassinating Koro Sensei. Then a girl hurts Maehara and Class 3-E decides to humiliate her for it.

This volume introduced some new characters and an interesting story while the students were on their class trip. An excellent display from Koro Sensei as he protected his students. When Koro Sensei does these things it is difficult to hate him as he really is a great character with his students best interests at heart. The students banded together and using the trip guide were able to locate their missing friends and rescue them. A humorous interaction ensued between the two schools.

The new assassin Ritsu is having difficulty fitting into class. Mainly due to the fact that she is a large machine and keeps disrupting class. A very interesting character for sure.  The students are working diligently to not only assassinate their teacher but also to raise their grades. This is an important aspect as it sheds more light as to the kind of stress the students are under. Even with all that is going on the students still have fun and give everything their best. It is with these plot points that make the series an absolute joy to read.

Though we still do not know much about Koro Sensei’s origin he remains as one of my most favorite characters. He is down right hilarious in most every situation. However I would like to know just where he came from and how he came to be. I cannot wait until we get his full origin story.

Taking every aspect into consideration this series is sure to excite and interest most anyone who picks it up. I highly recommend not only this volume, but this series as a whole.  Phenomenal read.
