Viz Media has kicked off their next week long sale of manga in digital form by picking Assassination Classroom as the series to work with. The book comes from creator Yusei Matsui and it ran between 2012 and early 2016 for twenty-one volumes. It generated two series of anime TV episodes and has some compilation film material coming as well. The sale covers the first eleven volumes of the series that has been released so far with ComiXology editions priced at $4.99, which can be viewed in Amazon Kindle, as well as the Amazon editions that are priced at $4.49.
Plot concept: Meet the would-be assassins of class 3-E: Sugino, who let his grades slip and got kicked off the baseball team. Karma, who’s doing well in his classes but keeps getting suspended for fighting. And Okuda, who lacks both academic and social skills, yet excels at one subject: chemistry. Who has the best chance of winning that reward? Will the deed be accomplished through pity, brute force or poison…? And what chance does their teacher have of repairing his students’ tattered self-esteem?
