Travel at Mach 20 Without Moving
See Korosensei in action in the latest promo for Assassination Classroom. Normally this type of limited animation is a surefire sign of a low budget but for a comedy title the choppy frame rate makes the gags more snappy. We'll have to wait until next January to see if it's a pass or fail.
