Winter is here and pickings are slightly slim for new anime. We’re likely to fill our anime-watching schedules with the 2nd and 3rd seasons of Durarara, Tokyo Ghoul and Kuroko no Basket. But if you’re looking for more than just the usual popular ones, here are 5 anime that you should give a try this January 2015.
1. Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assasination Classroom)
Announced back in November, this popular manga is finally hitting the telly this winter. There is an evil octopus seeking world domination on the loose and he’s my teacher! This next anime promises to be as crazy as the introduction sounds. It features a group of students that try their best to kill their homeroom teacher and for good reason. Their teacher claims that he will destroy Earth within a year but offers mankind a chance to change their fate. He does this by teaching the students not only regular subjects, but the ways of assassination. Meanwhile, the Japanese government has also placed a bounty of ¥10 billion to whoever among the students succeeds to kill their teacher. But with tentacles and super powers to spare, will the students succeed in killing this octopus?
Watch if: You’re interested in some tentacle fun or simply to get a good laugh.
