Also, judging by the character profiles, they still can't decide how they want to spell "Jelavic." Sometimes it has an h on the end, sometimes it doesn't. The translation throughout the book is much better than it was before, avoiding the non sequiturs (*Itona crashes through wall* "You just came in through the door - literally - but...") and bizarre wording ("You will use the anti-me knife which is harmless to humans") that distracted readers of previous volumes. In general, the translation seems more faithful to the original Japanese, opting to keep subtle metaphors and wordplay where they might have been eliminated if done in the style of the first few volumes.
I pray that this was not a fluke, and that future volumes will be as well done as this was.
This was a well done volume of Assassination Classroom carrying us through the end of the baseball arc to fully covering the new teacher Takaoka arc. This volume brought us closer to Karasuma and understanding Nagisa. I found it enjoyable and well paced.
In terms of quality, there were no typos or akward phrases. Pages were cleaned nicely, sound effects and general text was lettered professionally. Extras were few this volume though, there was small afterward about the cover design provided from the author. Additionally there were still character profiles in between chapters or just alternate dialogue for some key panels in chapters, but in terms of post volume content there was little.
Overall this was another great addition to the bookshelf.
