“Class E” of Kunugigaoka Junior High School consists of students determined to have no future. They’re separated from their classmates and assigned to a bizarre tentacled alien homeroom teacher. The alien, whom the students refer to as “Kurosensei” (literally “unkillable teacher”), had previously destroyed most of the moon and threatened to destroy Earth. However, he decided to delay his plan for one year if he was given a class of junior high school students to teach on the terms that he wouldn’t harm them.
Kurosensei teachers his class various assassination techniques and the government promises a 10 billion yen reward to the student who finally manages to kill him. Unfortunately, Kurosensei is able to avoid all of their attacks due to his vastly superior alien reflexes. In spite of this, student Nagisa Shiota keeps track of any perceived weaknesses as he and his classmates try to come up with new ways to kill him.
I love this latest live action anime from Japan. It's so silly but lots of fun to watch. The English subs are probably not 100% accurate but I find they make sense and am able to understand the movie. I'll watch it again just to see if the subtitles have improved.

Recommended for Japanese anime fans. Full English subtitled movie is no longer available on YouTube. Have fun watching Kurosensei's antics if you can find the movie elsewhere by searching.

The lead actor, Yamada Ryosuke as Nagisa Shiota, is a member of the Japanese idol group Hey! Say! JUMP. Here's a video of one of their songs from the movie
