Best Assassination Classroom Characters

The Top Ten
1 Karma Akabane Karma Akabane is a main character in the anime and manga series, Assassination Classroom. He is a student in Korosensei's Class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School. Previously, he had been suspended from the school due to his violent behavior. He is also one of Nagisa's closest friends.

Truly a unique character. It would've been easy to just relegate his role in the show to being a badass who is good at violence. But nope. They fleshed his character out, and as the show went on, you could physically see him transform. He started as a genius rogue who believes that the way to challenge the world is on his own, and turned into a genuine leader who has realized what it means to combine the strengths of everyone around him. Whoever wrote his dialogue and plotted out his character development, bravo. He feels truly human at the end of the show, arising from the fact that you are with him when he's failed and succeeded alike. He will inevitably end up being someone you admire.

2 Koro-sensei

Koro-sensei is another cute character in this series. I haven't gotten far into the series yet, so I don't know his backstory, but from what I've heard, it's really sad and tragic. He's the best teacher anyone could ever have, always trying his hardest to make his students feel good and develop their academic skills.

He's absolutely hilarious! He has such good character and such a tragic backstory! His humor makes everything better. This is exactly why he's an amazing character!

He's the reason this whole show and plot started. He isn't extremely strict, plus in the assassination bit of an episode, he's a challenge.

3 Nagisa Shiota Yamada Nagisa Shiota is one of the students in Class 3-E, the main student protagonist, and the series' narrator.

Nagisa is my favorite character because he's a kind and shy boy who is still strong regardless. His appearance makes it so that you won't suspect him, allowing him to easily let the enemies' guard down. I didn't think he was a girl at first because of a video I watched, which is what introduced me to Ansatsu Kyoushitsu. I can't decide if he or Itona is cuter.

I love how he has pigtails despite being a boy, but that's sorta his mom's fault for not letting him cut his hair. Regardless, it makes him really cute and girly despite being a boy. I feel bad for him for having an abusive mother, but the good thing is that he's still kind to others even though his mom is abusive. I never thought I would see an anime guy with pigtails. There is a Korean cartoon where a ninja boy has pigtails.

4 Kaede Kayano

Kaede is one of the nicest girls in Kunugigaoka (however you spell it). She cares about everyone, especially Nagisa. I don't care that she turned insane and tried to kill the teacher too early, but she is a nice person.

Major plot twist. I would have tried the pudding, even the bomb.

Most amazing person ever and queen of pudding.

5 Tadaomi Karasuma

He and Koro-sensei are the best teachers anyone could have. Even though he is stern and strict, he shows that he still cares for the students and his voice is magnificent.

I love his personality and how he helps the class develop. Definitely an amazing dude.

6 Yuma Isogai

Despite living in poverty, Isogai has a giving heart of gold and is trying to do what's best for his family, friends, and others (even if it includes breaking the rules). He has proven to be a great leader, leading class 3-E members many times. He also has many talents and is very intelligent when it comes to Social Studies/History.

The only flaw he has is being poor, but other than that, he indeed is an Ikemen. I would have to agree that he is the most handsome boy in class E. It's funny how everything he does is attractive, but when others do the same thing, it's just kind of pathetic. But that doesn't mean I hate them. That's just the humor in that scene.

7 Itona Horibe

When I first saw Itona in the manga, I instantly thought he looked cute. Even though he was a villain at first, I still thought he was cute. I've gotten to his tragic backstory part, and I can't help but feel bad for him. It was cute when he smiled as his classmates accepted him, and he even thought that class E was a good place to stay.

I think he looks better without a bandana, since I think his head is part of what makes him cute, but I understand why he has it. It's to keep his tentacles in control. I was surprised to know that I wasn't the only one who thought he was cute. After all, he has a unique kind of cuteness that you can almost never find elsewhere. And lastly, Itona is a cute name for a boy. He and Nagisa are my favorite characters because they're both cute and they're both the same height.

8 Tomohito Sugino

He is amazing. Not only is he kind and caring, he is relatable. He has insecurities about his baseball playing that Koro-sensei helps overcome. It's a shame nobody remembers him. I also loved how he could play baseball. Best boy for the win!

Another underrated character, I do feel that his character is somewhat underdeveloped. However, I think he did fine as a supporting character.

He was just a personal favorite.

9 Rio Nakamura

She's the most similar to me. She likes to prank and is super smart. And because of that, she wanted to be normal and dumb. My friends also sometimes keep their distance from me because they think I'm smart, which means I'll just mock them for being dumb. Sometimes I just wish to be normal, not too smart, not too dumb. Plus, I ship her with Karma.

I just love her personality. She is such a fun character. She also loves pranking and humiliating her classmates with Karma. She is honestly my favorite character.

10 Irina Jelavic

I can't decide whether I would pick her or Koro-sensei if I were to choose a teacher.

I hated her so much at the beginning of the anime, but now I love her.

I hated her with all my guts at first, but her development is amazing, and now I really love her.

The Contenders
11 Yuzuki Fuwa

Okay, Fuwa is queen. I love her detective skills, and her breaking the 4th wall comedy is a gold mine!

12 Ritsu

Ritsu is an easily likeable character. Her usefulness, development, and the hilarious things she did, like when she dressed up as a cop during cops and robbers, or when she dressed as a detective when they were investigating Koro-sensei, are amazing.

Easily in my top 5 favorite characters. Surprised she's so low on the list, there are plenty of times that she has proved to be influential in the flow of the series.

Ritsu deserves to be higher on the list! Definitely one of my favorites.

13 Manami Okuda

She is the most honest, innocent, and kind person I have ever seen. I like how most of us know about her because of her extraordinary skill in chemistry. It's weird when other people said that she is a kind of person that you can find a lot out there. She is special. It is very difficult for you to find a person who is both shy and crazily honest, innocent, like you can't find a person who is deaf but not mute, right? By the way, I love her platonic relationship with Karma.

She's so cute with her glasses. Her love for Science is what attracted me to her character.

14 Ryoma Terasaka

I find him interesting, despite his stereotypical brute personality. What I like best about this show is that it takes school cliques and digs deep into them, making an entire class of unique 3D people. Too bad we only got 2 seasons to enjoy them.

15 Gakushu Asano

He is handsome and intelligent but nowhere near Yuma's level. It seems that he's the way he is because of the principal, his father. I heard that Gakuho has a tragic backstory just like Koro-sensei, but I haven't gotten that far, so no spoilers please.

Twisted, yet noble. And the ruler of whatever group he wants to conquer. One of the most interesting characters of the series.

Cool and popular, no reason to hate him, only to hate his dad. I totally ship him with Karma, even though they look like siblings.

16 Gakuhou Asano

I cried during his flashback to the cram school. I hope he goes back to doing that.

I liked him second to Koro-sensei at first because he was a great foil, but after seeing him change so much, he became my favorite by the end.

17 Yukiko Kanzaki

Kanzaki had an extraordinary character development. She is also extremely relatable, having strict parents and wanting to run away from all that. She is a well-written character.

18 Rinka Hayami

My most favorite girl in the class! Her skills are the best. The coolest girl, fight me on this. I ship her so much with the emo sniper, Ryunosuke.

She is awesome, and she is a perfect example of a skilled, young, and a hell of a great assassin! (if she was)

Her story is sad, which is the reason she dropped to E class. And I love her professionalism.

19 Ryunosuke Chiba

I mean, come on. Chiba is badass. He is the best long-range shooter in the class, the cutest male tsundere ever, and his personality is just great! I like his bangs a lot too. It takes a lot of nerve to grow your hair out that long and be committed to it.

Chiba is blazin' hot. He looks badass/emo, and he is shy and a crazily skilled sniper!

The coolest sniper. Together with Rinka, this pair is really dangerous.

20 Hiroto Maehara
21 Megu Kataoka

Brains and power. She tells us girls don't have to be pretty, all they need is courage and strength.

22 Hinano Kurahashi
23 Toka Yada
24 Masayoshi Kimura

I wanted to learn more about him.

25 Hinata Okano

Even if she is the minority in this anime, I still love her because I think she's the cutest in this anime. Her tomboyishness and her 'badass' are what make me love her.

One of the best girls in anime for me. I think it's because she's the most cute for me.
