Time to Show Off a Hidden Talent (才能の時間 Sainō no Jikan) is the fifth volume of the Assassination Classroom manga.


Ever caught yourself screaming, "I could just kill that teacher"? What would it take to justify such antisocial behavior and weeks of detention? Especially if he's the best teacher you've ever had? Giving you an "F" on a quiz? Mispronouncing your name during roll call...again? How about blowing up the moon and threatening to do the same to Mother Earth—unless you take him out first?! Plus a reward of a cool 100 million from the Ministry of Defense! Okay, now that you're committed... How are you going to pull this off? What does your pathetic class of misfits have in their arsenal to combat Teach's alien technology, bizarre powers and...tentacles?!

Publisher's Summary[]

Intramural relations are at an all-time low: Principal Asano wants to crush Koro Sensei's 3-E baseball team while Koro Sensei wants to avenge Principal Asano's sabotage of 3-E's midterms. Then the government sends in a new Special Forces operative—a ruthless father figure who tests Karasuma's combat coaching skills. You'll never guess which student does him proud! And when Koro Sensei digs a swimming pool to help his students cool off, they discover a new weakness of his—as well as how cute their classmates look in swimsuits!

Author's Comment[]

I know it's a simple-looking cover, but I'm not doing it to save time. (Laugh). I meticulously adjusted the location of the mouth, looked at various different whites to find the color, and created mock-up volumes to see what they would look like. As a result, I've come to believe that white is a great color. I usually see the color white on paper or the background of my computer, so it's refereshing to see it take on a more active role like this. I want to become the kind of man who looks nice in a white shirt
