Looks like it’s not just the anime adaptation of Yusei Matsui’s Assassination Classroom manga which will be able to catch up to the manga’s ending, as a press conference for the second Assassination Classroom live-action movie has confirmed that the second film will be able to catch up to the manga as well.
The second live-action film is titled Assassination Classroom: Graduation, and is slated to premiere in Japan on March 25, 2016. According to Yusei Matsui himself, the film was timed with the ending of the manga, and all of this was thanks to a proposal that both the film and the manga will share the exact same ending.
Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed last month that Tsuyoshi Abe (pictured below) will play the assassin Red Eye in the second film.
The film has also cast Mirei Kiritani (seen below, top photograph) as Aguri Yukimura, and Hiroki Narimiya (below photograph) as Kōtarō Yanagisawa.
The manga’s ending coincides with Japan’s graduation season, which is usually being done in March. The same issue of Shounen Jump is also announcing that they are starting a “Graduation Countdown” for the manga, and will also feature an illustration by Yusei Matsui, which comments on the manga’s ending.
Previously, issue #11 of Weekly Shounen Jump! Magazine announced that the series is headed to the “conclusion of the fated battle.” So, will Class E finally assassinate Koro-sensei and save the Earth? I guess we will find out in March.
