I’ve been watching Classroom of the Elite since it first came out, and I’m still loving the show. I can’t get enough of this anime! If you’re looking for something that will fill your time with intrigue and drama, then check out Classroom of the Elite Season 1 on Crunchyroll or Hulu.
Horikita is a very relatable character.
Horikita is a very relatable character. She’s a good role model, a good friend, smart and fittingly book smart, a good student and leader who can be easily respected by her peers (at least the ones she respects), and a genuinely great person in general.
She can relate to what you’re going through as a viewer on so many levels. There’s no need for exaggeration when it comes to Horikita; she embodies everything you could want in an anime character while still being incredibly realistic at the same time.
The other students are all unique, interesting characters.
The other students are all unique, interesting characters. Kiyotaka is a great protagonist with a lot of personality and development. Hayama has some of the best one-liners in the show. Tsumiki is weird and cool—and she can be very emotional when she’s upset! Yukawa is smart and good at sports, but he’s also kind of lazy… And Inui’s style makes him stand out as well: his glasses are cool, he wears a scarf every day (even though it gets hot), and he has nice hair!
The story has some serious plot twists.
When it comes to plot twists, the best ones are surprising and unexpected. They’re usually not what you expect them to be, which makes them all the more fun to watch. If you’ve ever watched an episode of anime where there’s a character who gets killed off in a shocking way, then you know what I’m talking about!
In Classroom Of The Elite season 2 episode 1, we see some pretty interesting plot twists. For example (and without giving too much away), we see one student die from taking drugs during a party—but instead of being murdered by another student (like we’ve seen so many times before), this particular death is self-inflicted due to peer pressure. It was definitely unexpected!
The show gets you thinking about what you would do in Kiyotaka’s situation.
One of the most interesting elements of Classroom of the Elite is that it makes you think about what you would do in Kiyotaka’s situation. The show asks: if you were in Kiyotaka’s shoes, how would you react? Would you accept the offer from his friend Yuki to join her group and go against your own morals? Would you give up on your dreams because they didn’t seem possible anymore? It also makes one think about how they would react if they were in a similar situation.
The show seems more realistic than other animes, which makes it easier to get attached to the characters.
As a fan of Classroom Of The Elite, I’ve found that the characters feel more accurate than those in other animes. They have relatable personality traits and are easy to get attached to. For example, the main character Kiyotaka Ayanokouji is a hard worker who is always willing to help others. When he meets new people, he makes sure they feel welcome at his school by doing special things for them (e.g., making them their own signature uniform).
It’s fun to think about how the students’ backgrounds affect their actions and personalities.
Classroom of the Elite is a show that makes you think about how characters’ backgrounds affect their actions and personalities. If a character has a background in karate, it’s reasonable to expect them to have good reflexes, agility, and strength. If they’re from America, they’ll probably be more well-spoken than someone who grew up in Japan because Americans generally speak English better than Japanese people do. All this adds up to make each character unique and interesting in their own way.
It’s also fun to think about which characters are similar or different from each other–for example, some of the students were born into rich families while others had no means of support when they were growing up so how did that affect their personalities? This kind of thought experiment is what makes Classroom Of The Elite such an enjoyable watch for me!
I love the class divide that exists between Class D and Class A through F.
The class divide that exists between Class D and Class A through F is a major theme of Classroom Of The Elite. It’s not just about the students who are competing for a spot in the top ten; it’s also about those who aren’t even allowed to try. But this is actually a good thing because it keeps the student body engaged in the school and prevents anyone from getting too comfortable.
Now imagine if there were no classes at all. No one would care anymore! There would be no point in attending classes or studying because they wouldn’t need an education in order to get into college. Everyone would just do whatever they want until graduation day rolled around…and then what? So yeah—I think that having different levels makes sense when we consider how society works as well as our own personal self-interests.
So, what do you think? Do you agree with my assessment of Classroom of the Elite? What would you add to this list? I’m really looking forward to more seasons from the team behind this show and hope that they can keep up the high standards set by this season’s first two episodes!
