The Kunugigaoka school festival kicks off and 3-E is pulling out all the stops. Even with their location at the top of the mountain the students manage to use their weakness as their greatest strength. Using ingredients found all over the mountain the students cook up some of the most unique dishes. With the final exams around the corner Principal Asano has stepped up as the 3-A teacher. Using his ideal teaching methods Asano feeds class 3-A’s hate for 3-E, while also teaching them advanced subjects. After the final exams, Principal Asano takes a more desperate approach. It’s the final battle between 3-A and 3-E.
The story is still presenting new points and possibilities this far into the series. That is a huge feat as normally a series will lose its momentum and become stale, that is not the case here. The characters are still growing and developing. I am as excited to read the next volume as I was when I started the series. Assassination Classroom literally just gets better over time. Words can’t describe how excited I am to continue this series.
Several characters had developments in this volume. Nagisa used his communication skills to help better someone else. Karma used his knowledge to teach the other students the subjects they weren’t comfortable with. It is a real treat to be able to watch the students grow and mature with every volume. One of the best things about this series is the characters. It is nearly impossible for me to pick a favorite character at this point.
The story developments were quite a surprise as well. I had thought that the students would excel at their final exams but I didn’t think that Principal Asano would try to do what he did. Aside from the final exams I didn’t expect class 3-E to do so well at the school festival but with all the friends that they have made over the course of the series they were bound to have plenty of guests.
Assassination Classroom truly is a series that gets better as time goes on. There are still several things that I would like to see but with every volume we are that much closer to learning more about Koro Sensei and the final assassination. I am certainly in no hurry to finish the series as I am loving every bit of it. Assassination Classroom volume 14 was a perfect read.
