"We meet new people and then kill them. We have the best job!" proclaims Hazel to Cha Cha between stylish gunfights against the students.

With eight days to go before the prophesied apocalypse and the mysterious, unrelenting new villains, the students of the comic book adaptation's titular private school will certainly have their hands full to save the day without the guidance of their headmaster.
