shocking and crazy how far some people will go just to get revenge
Of course, I won't review this without talking about the story AT ALL. The story, of course, is well-written. Some might say it's too fast-paced, but I say it doesn't waste your time. This volume is the main bulk of the arc started in volume seven, with the conclusion to come in volume nine. Don't worry- the story just keeps getting better, especially once the second semester starts.
If I had to say one bad thing, I'd say that Viz is too thorough in its previews of the next volume. Assassination Classroom is a very content-dense series, so the previews feel less like previews and more like play-by-plays. But oh well.
Quality wise there was a typo in this volume (Karasuma is misspelled one time) so one wonders if some quality checking actually took place. I say that because the typo was actually four pages in. If I could see it then I would imagine anyone else could. On the same lines of quality, we did get lots of translated moments like the overview of the student locations on the resort section of the island, character profiles and random omake moments in the middle of the chapters, a translators note (on a character quirk and a gag manga reference), and a translated afterword.
The manga continues to have great content and a plot that's very focused on moving things along. It feels different and tighter than most other Shonen Jump manga. I think its for the better as it makes Assassination Classroom a very memorable series.
