This afternoon Funimation announced several new acquisitions and upcoming releases during their Industry Panel at Sakura-Con, the popular anime convention held at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, WA.
Funimation revealed the key art and English logo for ASSASSINATION CLASSROOM THE MOVIE: 365 DAYS’ TIME, a recap movie by the cast and crew from the first two seasons of the hit anime series.
The killer class is back in session — sort of. Relive every moment that made you laugh, cry, and kept you on the edge through the eyes of the top two students: Nagisa and Karma. Reminisce with them about the time spent in Class 3-E from the moment Koro Sensei appeared to his final moments. This is a look back at the adventures of being assassins in training!
