The students take and conclude their finals. After much hard work class E has beaten class A and according to their bet class E gets one request from class A. As class E has achieved the highest scores academically they are rewarded with trip to a resort in Okinawa. After the students launch their biggest assassination attempt, they are found to have been poisoned and are in immediate danger if they don’t get the cure in time. The remaining students unaffected by the poison and Karasuma now race to the hotel where the antagonist awaits their arrival.
The students attempted to pull off the most elaborate assassination attempt yet. They pulled out all the stops and went for broke. But this time the students were so close that Koro Sensei had no choice but to deploy his last line of defense to protect himself. Unfortunately for the students even after the failed attempt their hard times are just getting started as an interested party has their sites set on the bounty on Koro Sensei.
It is currently unknown as to what this mysterious antagonist wants from the students, I imagine it would be Koro Sensei but it could really be anything. I look forward to their meeting. The students showcased their skills perfectly in the assassination attempt. From the location, movie made for Koro Sensei, and the way the attempt was executed. The students are showing a lot of promise as the series moves on.
The only major part about this volume was the assassination attempt. As epic as it was we already knew that it was doomed to fail as we are still early into the series. But the students are making progress. They threatened Koro Sensei to the point that he used his absolute defense form. So we can agree that they are close to succeeding in his assassination. I hope to learn more about Koro Sensei before they succeed in killing him, as we still know nothing about him.
This volume was the much needed jumpstart to the series. As things started to feel repetitive, everything was shaken up by the mysterious interested party. I can’t wait to see how the remaining students assault the hotel and save their classmates. To be honest I was losing faith in series but now my faith has been restored. Assassination Classroom volume 7 was an excellent read.
