The new chapter which includes Jesus Franco painting makes me admire Matsui's fresh sense of humor even more. I agree with what Teeba said, the students are so easily get kidnapped up to the point where it doesn't feel natural and anti-climatic. I'm guessing that Matsui intended the story not focused solely on the kidnapping, but let's just see that later.
I also read the Psi x AssClass crossover, while I agree that it's not something unique or extraordinary, the manicure part made me laugh.
first page last panel of the raw chap. 17, we know his skin color can be 7 different colors but we don’t know if he can actually have his entire body of any of those colors or not.
So I think it’s quite probable his natural color is yellow but for now this thing is a bit confusing .
I have to agree with Teeba the chapter was lacking something with the kidnapping being too simple, but the first half with all the assassinations in the city was quite interesting, Matsui is good at doing this kind of thing. About the cover, it’s very interesting but I don’t know if I would really like having all the volume covers like this. We’ll see when next covers come.
Come on guys, the first time we ever see him in story, he's yellow. The double page after it has been used for the credit page almost every single chapter...
It's just proof that this double spread didn't make as much impact as you seem to suggest :-)
I'm really bad with such details and I remember more the cover where he is blue-green
I just think he constantly changes color, like a mood ring. So maybe his "base" color goes from green to yellow all the time.
Did anyone see Korosensei burst through Shuiesha's office in Japan?
The display in a Japanese bookshop when Assassination Classroom 1 went on sale?

Or how about the fact that Jump's talk show will interview him on the 9th? Things are looking good for Assassination Classroom, I hope the manga's quality can keep up with it!

my my whats this looks like this really is an instant big hitter, well about time something we like that WON'T get cancelled.
Adding one more image
Some sources said that the amount of advertising and print counts of Assasination Classroom is almost the same with when the best selling manga in the history came out in 1997. Shuueisha really put a lot of hope for this to become a mega-hit. Hopefully that's what will happen, only time will tell.
It really will become a hit if continue like this.
It's kinda understandable since it has one of the best start since one piece in TOC...
I really like how much attention AC gets
Considering the soon ending Naruto, KHR and bleach (not too mention all the new stuff bound to be cancelled sooner or later)
SJ needs to give some series promotion to get new Action/Shonen/Moneycows
usually I'm against this and think the readers should decide, but Ac is my fav series atm so please continue to support them SJ!
While all this attention for AC makes me happy, I'm somewhat sceptical. I mean, I enjoy it a lot, but all this hype seems a little too much.
They are nothing alike, Bulge was only popular here. Japanese hated it. Assassination classroom made one of the best TOC start ever.
What I hope is that the success won't affect Matsui originality.
