Name: Nagisa Shiota
Anime: Assassination Classroom
Voiced By: Mai Fuchigami
Specialty: Deception, Data Collection
Background: Nagisa is a calm, collected, and friendly individual. He is exceptionally observant and circumspect of his surroundings and the situations that develop around him. He tends to pay strict attention to Korosensei in hopes to understand the motives of this mysterious being and compiles the information he has gathered in his notes for reference.
Reason for CotM: When I first started watching Assassination Classroom I actually didn’t find Nagisa that impressive. In fact, he was probably the most underwhelming character in the season despite being the pseudo main for the series. While he provided some neat insight and gave a little charm to the series by writing down random notes about Korosenei, nothing about him really stood out. It wasn’t until the season was coming to a close that you really get to the see the strength of Nagisa. It seems obvious to me now, but the greatest strength of an assassin is one that is underestimated. The slow build up of his character definitely had one of the highest payoffs of character develop. When (if) the second season of Assassination Classroom is released I know Nagisa will be a big reason I pick it up.
