    When put in that class, Haru seems to nice to be real. Someone elsewhere came up with a theory that Haru herself also has a hidden mission: she might have to kill all 12 of her classmates in order to “graduate.” That would be a pretty vicious twist, to have Tokaku fight off everyone to save Haru, only to have Haru kill Tokaku herself at the end…

    Yeah, let’s go with that not being the case. Still, I’m expecting there to be some sort of twist in here, and just learning more about their backgrounds isn’t going to count. Something has to not be what it seems.

      Oh god, that would be too cruel ;A;

      The thing is, I really want to believe in Haru and her happiness, as unrealistic as that may sound. Despite those ominous scars, she’s the one thing that’s not dark and edgy in an otherwise dark and edgy show… yet.

        If Haru wan’t secretly a trained assassin herself, she will get wiped pretty quickly. I don’t think the story will even get to the point where Tokaku decides to abandon her mission to protect Haru before Haru gets the axe by any of the members of the “black class”.

          Don’t be too quick to jump to conclusions. One doesn’t necessarily have to be a trained assassin to have picked up some skills that would help allow one to survive trained assassins.

            Well it’s speculation of course. But saying one can evade a trained assassin from having just “picked up” a few skills seems to be a very questionable possibility. It simply isn’t realistic without hardcore training unless anime. Some of these girls are trained professionals and while Haru herself doesn’t have to be a trained assassin, to avoid death, she has to be on par with these girls(some of them probably practiced the act of assassination their whole lives).And literally, it’s an all against one war. It’s not even a fair fight. It would require god like reflexes,perception and alertness to avoid death.

              I suspect if we keep watching that we’ll find the rules the assassins have to play by are a bit more complex than just “everyone pile on the innocent girl.” Let’s watch a bit and see how this turns out.
