to:

* When Koro-Sensei had to punish his students for causing an old man to get hurt on their way to school, he also involved the ones who exactly ''weren't'' involved. He slapped all of them across the face, ''including'' those who were entirely uninvolved in the situation. He not only scolded the uninvolved kids for something their other classmates did, but gave all the innocents an equally cruel ArmorPiercingSlap! Apologies and "equal treatment" be damned, he shouldn't punish or ''harm'' those who aren't included in any sort of incident like that! So why did he?

Added DiffLines:

** The headmaster's whole strategy with his school was falling apart and his philosophy was getting overturned. It seemed that he was getting desperate and wasn't really in his right mind. Trying to destroy Class E's building and threatening to fire Koro-sensei was him ''panicking''.

Added DiffLines:

*** I can understand the reasoning behind that, but in that case... Why not [[spoiler:make an agreement with the world governments that he'll let himself be killed after teaching for one year]]? I could even understand if [[spoiler:the governments decided he can't be trusted on that]], but it's strange that he never even ''attempted'' it, especially in a series where the protagonists usually analyze every possible angle of their current problem.

Added DiffLines:

** Kayano [[spoiler: possibly being pregnant]] doesn't mean that the [[spoiler: other parent]] is Nagisa. It's entirely possible that she's with another guy, it has been seven years since graduation by that point

Added DiffLines:

* Also does the chairman really think the government would let him fire kuro-sensei? how does he think that conversation will go. "I want to fire Kuro-sensei because he challenges my personal philosophy." and they will just agree hell no they will laugh and say "you want us to let a dangerous planet killing monster loose on the world with no way to watch or keep track of just because you have problem with him? No. you really think the governments of the world wouldn't fabricate a bunch of shit to get him in jail if he tried something or hell they wouldn't even have to I am pretty sure he breaks several laws with his treatment of Class E. they could just throw him in prison and say "he was abusive to many children and went out of his way to try and expel a group of students who were trying their best to succeed and when they did he had a mental break and broke several laws in process. seriously how did he expect to get away with threatening to fire kuro-sensei? did he really think the government would let him?



to:

* If Koro-Sensei can move at Mach 20, why is Class 3-E not deaf or at least hard of hearing from the near-constant sonic booms? Koro-Sensei himself has a HealingFactor, but most of the students are normal humans.

Added DiffLines:

** No firm comfirmation one way or the other, though in my head-canon, she's being a [[SecretRelationship bit less than truthful...]]



to:

**In his own words: "I'm making good on a promise, one I don't take lightly." [[spoiler: He intended to die, but his first priority was looking after class 3-E like he promised. Training them in both academics and assassination made them strong enough to actually kill him while protecting them and preparing them for life, as he promised Aguri.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Wait, I'm confused about something: [[spoiler: If Korosensei WANTED to be killed the whole time to save the Earth, why not just let himself be killed? Why go through all this elaborate set up with the class?]]

Added DiffLines:

* Wait, so are Kayano and Nagisa canon or not?? The epilogue seems to imply [[spoiler: she's pregnant]], but she also says regretfully that Nagisa probably doesn't even think of her. And we get no confirmation one way or the other from Nagisa's perspective. It seems to imply both sides at the same time, so which is it?

Added DiffLines:

** That's actually missing the point. Asano's philosophy isn't that "some people are naturally less capable than others," it's that "if 5% of the population is subjected to abhorrent treatment, then the remaining 95% will work much harder in order to keep from falling into that bottom 5%." In other words, Class E isn't intended as a dumping ground for students who can't keep up, so much as it's intended to be a deterrent to spur the rest of the student body into trying their very hardest. But Class E only works as a deterrent as long as it's viewed as a ''punishment'' by the student body; when Class E succeeds over the "higher" classes, the rest of the students are forced to acknowledge the value of the Class E students, which makes it harder to look down on them and thus lessens the pressure on Class E, bettering the conditions for its students and in turn making it easier for them to succeed. Thus, Class E being allowed to succeed creates a positive feedback loop that makes it continually more difficult for Class E to fulfill its intended role as a deterrent, and without a deterrent there's no incentive for the rest of the students to work as hard,; this runs counter to Asano's ultimate goal of producing students who become "winners" after graduation. So it's not "Class E can't be allowed to succeed because they are inferior, and I will prove it by sabotaging Class E's efforts," it's "Class E can't be allowed to succeed because other students won't work as hard if they don't have to fear the fate of Class E, so I must ensure that Class E remains something undesirable." And in the end it fails ''not'' because it was a fundamentally flawed ideology, but because Koro-sensei was simply ''that'' much better of a teacher.

Added DiffLines:

** Since his true purpose was[[spoiler: to have Koro-sensei acknowledge him,]] he was probably satisfied with just defeating his targets (all assassins who were apparently targeting him rather than the other way around). That is to say "Look at how good an assassin I am, I can beat up all these other assassins!". After all, the students are all considered top-tier assassins partially due to taking down other assassins non-lethally, why shouldn't the same thing apply to him?

Added DiffLines:

* This is an anime-only headscratcher. Supposedly, Lovre was spared to spread the reputation of the God of Death. So... what? Spread the word that he's so incompetent an assassin that he doesn't actually kill his target? You know, that one thing assassins are supposed to be good at?


** Also keep in mind that the chairman is a major-league KnightTemplar and {{Jerkass}} who would rather let Koro-sensei ''destroy the planet'' than admit that he was wrong about Class E.

** Also keep in mind that the chairman is a major-league KnightTemplar and {{Jerkass}} who would rather let Koro-sensei ''destroy the planet'' than admit that he was wrong about Class E. He'll [[MovingTheGoalPosts move the goal-posts as many times as he likes]] to "prove" his method is best above all.


* Speaking of the whole "Class E" concept, why doens't anybody realize that the chairman's constant interference's demonstrate that his whole philosophy is bunk? The whole concept is based on the idea that some people are naturally less capable than others, but the fact that he has to continually scheme against 3-E to keep up the charade proves that it doesn't work that way. I realize that most of the students in the main building are sort of propagandized into believing the "Class E" is garbage thing, but wouldn't you think that ''somebody'' would point out "Hey, wait a minute, the only reason the other classes are doing better than E is because the administration is deliberately fudging the numbers to keep it that way"? It's like a bunch of runners making fun of somebody for being slow, when the only reason they're slow is because the ref made them wear a ball and chain.
