Grown-Up Time 「大人の時間」
After a week’s hiatus, the assassination continues with the introduction of real professional assassin Irina Jelevic aka Bitch-sensei muahaha! She totally deserves that title!
First of all, for anyone wondering why Ansatsu had to postpone its broadcast last week, it was because the show’s terrorism and assassination plot was deemed too close for comfort to what was happening in Japan with the ISIS hostage situation. Some viewers were miffed that real world situations interfered with their weekly entertainment (seriously how childish and selfish can those viewers be) but this isn’t the first time real world happenings have caused television stations to stop broadcasting. Most recently I think Psycho Pass (season 1) had one of its episodes delayed too when a high school bullying-turned-murder incident hit too close to home with the plot for a particular episode. So as light-hearted as Ansatsu seems, bear in mind that we’re dealing with children trained to become assassins. Take the context out and it’s not so light-hearted anymore right?
Ok so that was sombre… umm, onto the lighter note that is this week’s introduction of a real pro assassin who speaks 12 languages, Bitch-sensei (Itou Shizuka)! The blonde and very busty professional shows just how much she knows her stuff, being able to use the never fail art of seduction to claim her victims of powerful and undoubtedly lusty men. Except she was probably too proud to read the memo on using special bullets against Koro-sensei, and too proud to take into consideration every little tidbit that Nagisa’s been conscientiously recording about the tentacled teacher who proves this week that as long as one is male, regardless of species, they fall prey to the seductions of a temptress. Koro-sensei of course goes one up on her in spite of turning all powder pink and turned on by her very revealing cleavage, by giving her the ultimate tentacle massage everywhere. Everywhere. E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E. Enough for Irina to have gone where none have brought her before surely. I’m still talking about the massages *wink* as only grown ups know how to take care of grown ups with grown up care ^^
As predictable as tentacle humour goes, I still really enjoyed the humour this week what with the entire class turning on Bitch-sensei with their naming sense (she really was a bitch to them) and inability of the Japanese to pronounce ‘v’, as well as the steamy bordering on R-18 SOUNDS Bitch-sensei made in the shed during her 1 min Koro-sensei massage. So far we’ve had 3 students and 1 teacher and a whole class of students left to go in 18 episodes. Plenty more of laughs and heartwarming features to come just as was reiterated this week though I’m a bit iffy about how in between extreme genres (terrorism vs slice-of-life) Ansatsu is but yet do look forward to how these extreme genres get mashed up every week.
I do want more of Karasuno-sensei’s lessons though because the guy from the Ministry of Defence who somehow also holds a teachers’ licence, managed to assimilate assassination techniques into proper PE classes through assassination badminton! That’s what teaching’s all about and he made sure Bitch-sensei got it through watching his and Koro-sensei’s efforts for the class everyone’s abandoned. Like he said, there’s 2 agendas to everyone involved in class 3-E – the students to pass their entrance exams & kill Koro-sensei, for Karasuno to teach the students assassination techniques & PE and for Koro-sensei to frickin awesomely tailor his lessons for each student at Mach-20 speed (while being able to sip juice and twirl a pen) and then destroy the world. So Bitch-sensei has assumed her double identity as English teacher, starting with, ‘You are incredible in bed’. LOL. What else would you expect?!
