"Assassination Classroom" Co-promotes With 170th Volume of "Golgo 13"

Plus gravure idol Sugihara Anri cosplays as character

For 44 years, business men have been enjoying the adventures of cold hearted assassin Golgo 13, and its 170th volume hits Japanese bookstores this week. Last year Assassination Classroom, about a middle school class who have one year to learn how to assassinate their alien teach or he'll annihilate Earth, became one of Shonen Jump's most popular manga. Now, the two are teaming up for a bit of co-promotion.

 

Fans who buy Golgo 13 volume 170 this week, or Assassination Classroom volume 6, on sale October 4th, will receive special team-up cards.

 

 

Meanwhile, the smartphone app spin-off Jump Live features a photo spread with gravure idol Sugihara Anri as foreign language/seduction teacher Irina "Bitch-sensei" Jelavić.
