Reaper Time, Part 1 is the twenty-ninth episode of the Assassination Classroom anime and the seventh episode of Season 2. It first premiered in Japan on February 18, 2016.

Summary[]

When Irina is kidnapped and held hostage by the legendary assassin known as the Reaper, Class 3-E attempts to rescue her without the help of Korosensei and Karasuma. But the Reaper's skills may be far too outmatched for the students to handle.

Plot[]

Toka Yada, Hinano Kurahashi and Hinata Okano discuss with Irina about their new military uniforms from the government. Irina states that she originally wanted the girls' military uniforms to be more revealing but compromised with Karasuma's vision, to which the girls are grateful for. Irina then chastises Karasuma for not giving Irina a present as she walks away. The girls remember that October 10 (four days previously) had been Irina's birthday.

In the staff room, Irina privately thinks to herself about not receiving anything from Karasuma, as she used to have plenty of suitors, but now he's all she cares about. Also, she cannot contact Lovro since the summer holidays. Megu Kataoka and a few of the girls take Irina outside to ostensibly learn more French. Okajima and Maehara are eavesdropping from out of a window, who radios Nagisa's group at the town to buy a present.

As they wonder what to get someone who has almost everything, the flower shop man who had witnessed accident two weeks ago approaches them. Confirming their intentions to buy a present, the flower shop man makes a convincing sales pitch for a bouquet of roses. The students buy them.

Nagisa's group returns to the mountain classroom and convinces Karasuma to take the flowers to present to Irina. With that accomplished the group of students who're busy pampering Irina suddenly leave, much to her confusion and chagrin. Returning to the staff room. However, she finds Karasuma who wishes her a happy birthday and presents her with the bouquet of flowers.

Initially speechless, Irina thanks him. Karasuma then states that it will be the only time to mark such an occasion as either the world ends or the mission is successful. At this, Irina realizes she has been set up, walks over to the window and finds the class eavesdropping underneath (and a spying Korosensei from above).

She hopes that the class had fun stringing a professional assassin along as she realizes that their relationship is strictly a business one. She rejects the flowers and storms out of the classroom. The students accuse Karasuma of being cold and not noticing Irina's feelings for him. He answers that he did notice but states that Irina's blade has been blunted by romance and therefore not suited for their mission. At the school car park, Irina contemplates leaving the mission as a figure approaches behind her.

Three days have passed, and Irina had not been seen since her storming out. The students worry about her wellbeing and unable to contact her as Korosensei leaves for a soccer match in Brazil. Afterwards, the flower shop man casually walks in as though blended with the environment, with the students only realizing his presence after they speak to him. He claims that he was able to easily exploit their connection to Irena. The man introduces himself as the Reaper, with the flower deliverman being a guise, and tells Ritsu to open the image he had just sent to the AI. The image reveals Irina tied up and gagged.

The assassin demands that the entire class go to the location. He will specify without any word to their teachers, or else he will send each of them a piece of Irina and take one of them, hostage, in her place. Terasaka calls his bluff and threatens him but the Reaper instantly leaves in a flash, leaving behind a map and a note telling them to go the location on the map at 6pm.

The class arrived at the location wearing the new military gear. With nothing standing out according to Itona's recon drone, Sumire Hara tells Ritsu to tell Korosensei of the situation if they're not back by midnight before the class enter the complex. Arriving in a big room, the Reaper greets them via camera before activating his trap. After seeing Irina tied up, the class try to find a way to escape.

Okajima keeps the Reaper distracted by talking to him as Mimura finds a hallowed spot on the wall. Takebayashi sets explosives while Okuda throws down a smoke bomb to cover the class's escape. Their efforts though please the assassin, getting a chance to warm up until Korosensei arrives. At the same time, the class splits into two groups, one led by Isogai to potentially fight the Reaper and another led by Kataoka to rescue Irina. Meanwhile, Korosensei is enjoying himself in Brazil, but his innocent remark of 7 to 1 unwittingly angers the locals. His failed attempts to contact various students. However, make him worry as his simultaneous dodging skills reverses the locals' attitudes towards him.

The battle group try to strategize with the mobile Ritsu. Unfortunately, they realize from her lazy behavior the AI had been hacked into. At that moment, the Reaper approaches in a shrouded matter with no one unable to make him out. Muramatsu and Yoshida charge at him but the assassin takes them out with ease with his close combat skills. He then kicks Kimura.

In one swift move, he appears among the group and kicks Kayano in the ribs. Although the cracking sound was emitted by her PE suit to withstand the impact, the assassin's emotionless statement thinking the girl's ribs were such brittle angers Nagisa. He walks up to the assassin with a taser in hand, ready to perform the clap stun technique. However, the Reaper does it first, stunning Nagisa into paralysis. The assassin instantly takes out the rest of the battle group who are vastly outmatched by his speed. He also explains to Nagisa about the wavelength of a human's consciousness and striking at its peak before the boy falls unconscious. He notes that they are missing a few students.

Meanwhile, the rescue squad find Irina and untie her. However, Irina betrays the group and using various tricks to incapacitate most of the group much to their shock. While Terasaka prepares to fight her and the Reaper who had just arrived, Itona instead opts to surrender, hoping to win another day.

The class is soon imprisoned in a large cell, Nagisa still dazed out from the clap stun technique. Karma asks whether the assassin's fight with Korosensei will go according to plan. But, he answers that no matter how poor the intel he will still get results. Looking at his monitor; however, he finds Karasuma outside the complex with Korosensei acting like a dog to track the students' scent.

Trivia[]

  • Korosensei's remark of 7 to 1 is in reference to the 2014 FIFA World Cup semi-final between Germany and Brazil. Brazil's humiliating loss is also referenced by the locals who were painfully reminded of the outcome hence why they attacked Korosensei.
  • Twenty-eight Class 3-E students are now soldiers and are wearing the military uniform, similar to PE gear.

Differences between anime and manga[]

  • When discussing the design of Class 3-E's new military uniforms, Irina emphasises Toka Yada as a model in the manga. In the anime, it uses Ritsu as a model.
  • The manga scene where Red Eye was being chased by the Reaper was omitted.
  • When the students are distracting Irina, Korosensei explains how she has started using more of the students names and how she has become a great teacher. He also starts to think of a way he can also scheme with the students.
  • In the anime when Irina confronts the students about scheming about her love life she shoots her gun in the air, while in the manga she shoots past Okuda's and Takebayashi's heads to hit a tree.
  • The manga has a number of additional scenes where after the third day of Irina not showing up, including Korosensei asking if Karasuma could empathise with her and Lovro warning Karasuma about the Reaper.
  • The manga shows that a "bug" was placed in the bouquet given to Irina.
  • During the fight between Team A and the Reaper in the manga, Nagisa did not have a knife along with his stun gun when attacking the Reaper.
  • In the anime, Terasaka carries Irina.
  • The manga also has the students taunting and looking down on Irina before she incapacitates them. Irina also took the students down in a much more elaborate manner.
  • In the manga it was Karma who notices Karasuma and Korosensei arriving and not the Reaper.
