The turning point in the fate of Class 3-E is when a new teacher comes to their school. This teacher is not an ordinary teacher, but an octopus-shaped creature who is the target of the government for destroying the Moon. Nicknamed as Koro-sensei, he would later teach Class 3-E various things and improve their grades. Meanwhile, class 3-E only has one mission from the government, which is to kill their teacher within one year.
