Koudo Ikusei Senior High School is a leading prestigious school with state-of-the-art facilities where nearly 100% of students go on to university or find employment. The students there have the freedom to wear any hairstyle and bring any personal effects they desire. Koudo Ikusei is a paradise-like school, but the truth is that only the most superior of students receive favorable treatment.

Ayanokouji Kiyotaka is a student of D-class, which is where the school dumps its "inferior" students in order to ridicule them. For a certain reason, Kiyotaka was careless on his entrance examination, and was put in D-class. After meeting Horikita Suzune and Kushida Kikyou, two other students in his class, Kiyotaka's situation begins to change.

,,Are human beings truly equal?“

Using a pretentious question as an opener is common in Light Novel adaptations. It's a fast way to both grab the attention of the inexperienced viewer and to introduce the general intentions of the show. If you think about the question for a second or so, it becomes clear that questioning the equality of the human race serves no purpose as anything but a rhetorical question or a joke. Coincidentally, the same applies to large parts of the series itself. The stakes in this show are so unbearably low that anything happening on-screen ultimately serves no purpose. Overall the series up read more

Classroom of the Elite indeed took me by surprise with a first episode that grasped my attention. It takes place in a prestigious school where the good and the great are separated. Or in this case, the good and the bad.

Class D, the worst one, is the main focus of the anime which consists of the characters. Of course, not being in class D gives you a sense of superiority. Class D students are seen as piles of garbage, I mean even the teacher thinks so too.

It introduces the point system, which I suppose is the currency in the school (1 point read more

After watching 4 episodes of this anime, I would like to say, I am severely disappointed, but, for now, I'm going to start with what I like. FIRST OF ALL, SORRY, BUT THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. BUT I WILL LEAVE OUT AS MANY AS POSSIBLE(Not that it matters, the show isn't worth anyone's time).

For one, the character designs look nice, even though they're quite generic.

Another thing is that the art and animation is good for the most parts with some weird stuff every now and then(quite rare though).

Now that I've gotten what I like about this show, let's move onto the rest.

First of all, read more

This is the 1st time for me to write a review for an airing anime....... So I'll try and keep it fresh.

I mean, it's a light novel adaptation. It'll be interesting, right? The concept built for students who aim high in a prestigious school. It's about to get bumpy as it doesn't go as well as expected.

The plot is really interesting. As a reader of the LN, I say that it's a combination of Oregairu and Ansatsu Kyoushitsu. But to be clear, wouldn't you find it entertaining as it really gives of a good vibe just from the 1st episode? A system which determines the read more
