I guess that puts all of the notion that this might become a battle manga eventually to rest.
OH man, I read the translation for chapter 28 and
I have just finished chapter 27 today! What a good series, I laughed for the humor and enjoyed the moral messages this strange alien teacher presented to his students. I like how the author showed how Koro-sensei approached the students one by one. The latest with Ritsu just doesn't make sense but funny in its own way. XD
Ah, I get what you mean. In my head as long as his appearance is not like other humans in general, hard to say he's a human, LOL~ It was not yet confirmed that the "2 of each" referred to hands and legs like normal human; until then I'd say he's still an alien for me. XDD
Also you can see him transforming from human to his current form in the flashback of chapter 1, so there is little doubt about that fact anymore.
You'll also see in the latest chapter (HUGE spoiler)...
A nice transition chapter before the long awaited 2d transfert student.
I liked when ritsu put some winter clothes, it's little details like that make me love this manga.
This was one of my favorite chapters to read this week. I really love Matsui's writing here. Its such a mischievous idea, and then when they come back to Japan we are hit with plot progression, with us being completely aware at how cliche the new development is without scorning it at all. Basically, it was totally meta, and meta is my cup of tea.
How many times have you wanted to see a movie but couldn't because of country restrictions? To me that really struck home. And even the kind of movie they saw -- an American comic book hero movie sequel with a distinguished director -- it made the manga very current. Ritsu becoming a mobile phone app was also very current. Someone on tumblr commented that Ritsu is an ideal female character pandering to otaku, except of course she's not real and is just a 2D image. Its stuff like this that makes AssClass fun to read.
It was really wish-fulfillment-y too, because Korosensei acted more like their guardian or parent than a teacher. But it made sense. I think the more Class E bond with Korosensei, the more he's going to drop the pretense of being a dangerous criminal -- even if he really is a dangerous criminal. I think its going to mess with their heads more and more. When Ritsu asked Karma why he doesn't try to kill Korosensei in the air, I almost got a bit of mood whiplash because Korosensei's personality didn't match up with Class E's objective, not in this chapter anyhow. Of course the newest member of the class would ask the most relevant question.
And then the ending was totally surprising, yet somewhat predictable. I'm interested in seeing why this kid calls Korosensei his brother. Does the new transfer kid have an objective besides killing Korosensei? It seems like it. But I think the fact that they're "brothers" will be used a lot more blatantly than it should. Maybe it'll be a red herring. I don't know!
Um yeah. Massive fangirl feelings for this chapter. *hides*
