An early look at the cover for "Comic News" has confirmed the clues that an adaptation of Yusei Matsui's "Shonen Jump" hit is on the way

An early look at the cover for Comic News has confirmed the clues that an adaptation of Yusei Matsui's Shonen Jump hit Assassination Classroom is on the way. The anime is set to air on Fuji TV in 2015, lining up nicely to maybe take over the Dragon Ball Z Kai block when the Buu Arc ends in March. Additionally, a live-action movie is being developed.

 

 

A special about a field trip to historic Kyoto was produced for this fall's Jump Super Anime Tour 2013.

 

Cast for that included:

Karma Akabane ( Nobunaga Shimazaki in the vomic ) - rebellious student, regarded as the strongest in the class - Nobuhiko Okamoto (Index/Railgun'Accelerator )
