Synopsis
Six months ago, a mysterious super being appeared one day at the prestigious  Kunugigaoka Junior High School and announced that he will be taking over as the new homeroom teacher of Class 3-E, a notorious class of flunkies. In the first film, more shocking news was delivered when the assistant homeroom teacher Mr Karasuma divulged to Class 3-E that they have been assigned by the government with a secret mission to assassinate this creature, who has threatened to destroy Earth in a year’s time. The reward? 10 billion yen.

The story resumes in the sequel as the second semester begins at Kunugigaoka Junior High School. Only six months left till doomsday, and Class 3-E is making no headway in assassinating their homeroom teacher, whom they have nicknamed UT, or “Unkillable Teacher”. Besides, the class seems to have developed an extraordinary bond with UT.

Conflict arises when one of their own, a girl named Kaede Kayano, suddenly declares vengeance on UT, spitting out these fateful words: “I’m Aguri Yukimura’s younger sister. You should know what that means!” Class 3-E is horrified when she, too, reveals a black tentacle on her that is similar to UT’s. Breaking his silence after so long, UT recounts his life to the class, telling them that he was once an assassin named God of Death. The revelation of UT’s tragic past creates a rift between the despaired members of Class 3-E. Should they follow through their mission and kill this ‘creature’, or should they save a teacher who actually cares about them? 

Meanwhile, the final phase of the government’s “UT Assassination Strategy” has been implemented on a national level. Assassination or salvation, Class 3-E must decide on whose side they will stand.

What will become of UT and the Earth he vowed to destroy? Will Class 3-E live to graduate?
Reviews
By Yian Lu  19 Apr 2016
Action, CG and a dash of humour, this sequel still fares moderately well. Enjoy the movie with a light-hearted mood, Korosensei's multiple transformations (Peach, dog, police, and Karasuma-sensei!?) and facial expressions (See his face change colour!) definitely can put a smile across the audience’s faces.

A sequel to the first part shown in July 2015, Assassination Classroom 2 continues the story about Class 3-E’s mission to kill their homeroom teacher, Korosensei. If part one covers the general plot, part two zooms in on the secrets behind what happened and why it happened.

The Good
A recap at the beginning serves well at introducing the various major characters. It not only helps to remind who the assassins sent after Korosensei are in part one, but also helps audience who have yet to watch part one understand a little of the background of each character.

While the plot is simple with the aim to kill Korosensei before he destroys Earth next March, the action scenes coupled with realistic CG (computer graphics) send tensions down the aisle in waves. Among which, one of the fights to look forward to is that of Karma versus Nagisa, signifying the dilemma between killing and saving Korosensei which Class 3-E is facing.

The Bad
A no-go for avid fans of the manga or anime, this sequel skips certain sub-plots to compress the chapters to fit into the 118-min film. The beginning may seem a little hasty as it half-heartedly covers the school festival, where most character developments took place in the original work. It is a pity various interesting elements like how Class 3-E builds their teamwork and bond through training, certain cool gadgets and suits are not included in the movie. They could have given the movie more depth, a better understanding of the characters, instead of a touch-and-go, skimming across the surface.

While there are various attempts at following the original work, such as iconic lines and epic scenes, they come off as fuzzy due to the lack of depth. Audience who do not follow the manga or anime would most likely not understand certain jokes or grasp certain supposedly meaningful scenes.

And The Summary
Action, CG and a dash of humour, this sequel still fares moderately well. Enjoy the movie with a light-hearted mood, Korosensei's multiple transformations (Peach, dog, police, and Karasuma-sensei!?) and facial expressions (See his face change colour!) definitely can put a smile across the audience’s faces.

Side note: Fans of Ryousuke Yamada and Kazunari Ninomiya must not miss the credit block. Be prepared to squeal away as they smile charmingly at the camera!
