Assassination Classroom Vol. 3

This is a review for Assassination Classroom Vol. 3 by Yusei Matsui
I rated this book ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 stars, I loved it.

Reminder: this is the third volume in a series and this review will probably spoil the first two volumes.  If you wish to read my reviews of 1 & 2 before you read this one you can find them here 1 & 2.

"We are assassins and our target is our teacher."
The students of class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High have it rough.  Their school has a strictly enforced hierarchy and they are at the bottom.  The principal is determined to keep them there, even going so far as to change the material on their midterms to keep them from getting good grades.  This should make them depressed, angry and bitter.  Their teacher is something special though, Koro-sensei goes out of his way to make sure each of his students is reaching their full potential.  It kind of puts a damper on their desire to assassinate him though!

This volume picks up where the last one left off.  Two of the students got kidnapped by a gang of high school students while on their class trip to Kyoto.  The rest of their group has decided to attempt to rescue them using the guidebooks Koro-sensei made for their trip.

After their trip they look forward to settling back into their routine at school but the government is shaking things up.  They have a new student joining their class.  She is a very determined assassin and the other students don't like having to clean up after her messes.  Miss Vitch has a guest who wants her to leave the school.  Koro-sensei makes a bet between them to determine if Miss Vitch will get to stay a teacher or leave to continue her assassination career elsewhere.

As usual this volume ends in a cliffhanger to get you to keep reading.  I would keep reading anyway because I enjoy the series.  I know I have said this before and I will probably say it again.  Read this manga and watch the anime!
