Buy it... if you appreciate the schizophrenic nature of Naoki Sato's pop-culture scores, this one supplying twenty minutes of extremely attractive melodic grace amongst its rocking action.

Avoid it... if you have been particularly unimpressed with Sato's ability to jam hard rock, sensitive piano, orchestral action, and ambient electronic suspense into the same score, this one requiring some patience to appreciate in its whole.

Assassination Classroom: Graduation: (Naoki Sato) If you're not in tune with the craziness that often pervades Japanese comic manga and its spinoffs, then the "Assassination Classroom" concept is likely to make no sense to you whatsoever. The Yusei Matsui series of comics starting in 2012 became enough of a sensation in Japan to yield concurrent adaptations into television anime, video games, and live action movies in 2015 and 2016, the anime and movies divided into two seasons that contain the concept's entire story arc. The stories of the various incarnations of "Assassination Classroom" are pretty much faithful across mediums, but don't expect them to make a whole lot of sense in any case. Essentially, the Japanese government somehow combines radical genetic alterations of plants with their assassin program, turning one of their prime assassins into a cartoonish, yellow, alien-like being that in turn destroys most of the moon and sets Earth as his next target. Before annihilating this planet, however, he fulfills a promise to teach a class of misfits at a junior high school in Japan, where he turns the hormonal little shits into professional assassins while also instilling important academic and life lessons upon them. Meanwhile, the Japanese government is trying to kill this "Koro-Sensei" and his maniacal grin before he accomplishes his larger goals, enlisting the students and outside assassins to destroy him. It's all quite asinine, really, but it's an outlet for the usual teenage angst genre against the popular government assassin subplot, and by the end of the show's second season (and the second film), the class of twerps is reduced to tears as they accomplish their task with bittersweet sentimentality. From a purely Western perspective, trying to watch the extremely popular anime or live-action "Assassination Classroom" concept is an extreme test of strained logic, but the more important aspect of the endeavor for the purposes of film music collectors is Japanese composer Naoki Sato's involvement in both the television and film productions. It's important to understand that much of this concept is dominated by song placements (including the usual "pop star as an actor in the movies" phenomenon), with music by Koji Mihara and Akimitsu Homma appearing in the second season of the television show seeming most popular. With the theme song changing four times in the show's two seasons, there is no substantial melodic identity to tie all of this story together on the screen.
