OP2: 「バイバイ YESTERDAY」 (Baibai Yesterday) by 3年E組 うた担 ［渚&業&茅野&磯貝&前原］ (Sannen E-Gumi Utatan [Nagisa & Karma & Kayano & Isogai & Maehara])
「告白の時間」 (Kokuhaku no Jikan)
After an entire cour of build up and a one week delay, AssClass has finally upped the ante and is getting serious!
Before I say anything about the girl who nearly killed Koro-sensei, can I express just how happy I was to see my one true pair actually appear? Ever since the beginning of the series, I’ve been rooting for a Nagisa x Kaede pairing. Not only are they pretty unique in comparison to the rest of the class, but I’ve always felt this special link between the two. Sure, you could say that it was all Kayano’s acting, but there’s no denying she enjoyed that kiss from Nagisa and she was blushing pretty strongly when Nagisa addressed her after their romantic moment.
Getting back on topic though, it was nice to see Kayano return to the class without any serious problems from the tentacles. She’s probably one of the few female characters who I just don’t think I could watch this show without, ya know?
After complaining episode after episode, we finally got to take a peek into Koro-sensei’s past – and boy it didn’t disappoint. Starting with the beginning, who would have thought he was the true number one assassin able to kill anyone in the world known as the Reaper? A fact that seemed a little ridiculous at first, but started to make more sense the more I thought about it. I mean, how else could have Koro-sensei managed to avoid all those assassination attempts? With speed and his personality alone, I’m sure he would have tripped up by now. But with the knowledge of a true assassin, it all really starts to come together.
That said, who would have guessed his power and speed comes from antimatter? Or I suppose the creation of antimatter and how it’s tied to his cells and how they reproduce? Honestly, it sounds a bit ridiculous (since it probably is), but there is a certain cool factor involved that makes Koro-sensei look like the coolest science project ever.
With the story finally focusing on Koro-sensei’s past, it looks like we’re about to get a good look into just what changed him from the number one assassin into the best teacher Kunugigaoka has ever seen. In any case, I’ll catch you guys next week where I have this odd feeling we’re going to need some tissues.
See you later!
