“Classroom of the Elite” is a cult High School Drama anime that is based on books and manga with the same title. The original idea was to create an e-book series by the author Shogo Kinugasa “Classroom of the Elite” tells the story of the handful of high school students who are in the class that is the lowest in Japan’s top academic institution (via Anime News Network). The protagonist, Kiyotaka Ayanokoji, is an incredibly smart person who deliberately placed himself in the school’s bottom levels for no motive. Shortly after he is accepted, Kiyotaka learns that the school’s academic accomplishments are the sabotage of education more than anything else which prompts Kiyotaka to defend himself and his classmates as they rise up the ranks of the school.
The first light novel was released in the year 2015 but quickly resulted in adaptations for comics and animated films, both of which was aired in the year 2017. Like many other anime adaptations, when it comes to adaptations of anime, “Classroom of the Elite” did not manage to incorporate the entire original material. The result is that fans are still awaiting for the start of a new season. Although it could be a possibility at the moment The show’s creators haven’t officially cancelled the show, leaving room for the possibility of a continuation. This makes the information on “Classroom of the Elite” Season 2 sparse, there remains plenty to talk about the storyline, cast and release date. We’ll take a look at the information we have to date.
What date will Classroom of the Elite Season 2 be released?
After all these years, it seems the animators from “Classroom of the Elite” animators (Studio Lerche) and its licensing partners (Funimation as well as Crunchyroll) have decided to keep silent on the second season of the show. Both parties have decided not to announce any news in the last four years, and it wouldn’t be unreasonable to conclude that at this point “Classroom of the Elite” Season 2 is unlikely to ever be realized. Yet, the absence of any information about the subject offers a glimpse of optimism for the fans.
If Lerche as well as the series’ licensors release a second episode of “Classroom of the Elite,” it could be close to one year (if not longer) before the show’s premiere date arrives. One of the previous projects from Lerche, “Assassination Classroom,” was announced in April of 2015 in a separate article by Anime News Network. The series didn’t air until January of 2016, which means it could be that “Classroom of the Elite” could take as long (about 8 months) as an order to finish production.
Who are the Classroom of The Elite characters?
Every anime needs the presence of strong characters as “Classroom of the Elite” is not devoid of characters with unique personalities. In addition to the protagonist Kiyotaka Ayanokoji – who is voiced by Shouya Chiba in Japanese and Justin Briner in English (via Myanimelist) The show “Classroom of the Elite” has a host of other secondary characters. The most notable of these is Suzune Horikita (Akari Kitou/Felecia Angelle), another soft spoken-yet-intelligent student who lands herself in the academy’s lowest ranks, and she quickly befriends Kiyotaka. Kiyotaka is also a part of the group. Kikyou Kushida (Yurika Kubo/Sarah Wiedenheft) A popular classmates with Suzune and Kiyotaka and Kiyotaka, who hopes to make friends with all her peers in the academic world, but especially Suzune.
Many fans will likely be happy viewing “Classroom of the Elite” in its original Japanese however, those who prefer the dub version will be thrilled to learn that the English dub of the show has always been released along with the Japanese counterpart. If “Classroom of the Elite” Season 2 ever be released the fans can expect the same to be the situation. In general, critics have praised”Classroom of the Elite” Season 1’s English dub, and particularly the performance by Justin Briner as Kiyotaka (via Anime News Network).
What’s the story behind Classroom of the Elite Season 2?
“Classroom of the Elite”‘s first episode “Classroom of the Elite” concludes with Kiyotaka successfully completing the school’s “Lord of the Flies-style” survival test, by correctly identifying the names of the leader of the class. Following his triumph, however, Kiyotaka discovers the fact that his dad has tried to expel him from school. This is a direct result of Kiyotaka’s reasons to attend at all in the first. Whatever the reason, Kiyotaka elects to continue in the school no matter the circumstances.
Assuming that it follows exactly like Season 1 of the series, “Classroom of the Elite” Season 2 is likely to remain in a large part faithful towards its manga as well as novel sources. As with others, the anime-based adaptations source material is miles above the animated series in regards to plot development, which means that there’s plenty of inspiration to draw inspiration from. Viewers aren’t sure of Kiyotaka’s motive for going to this cutthroat school. Additionally, he’s not yet made it to the top of the ranks of his peers’ performance in school and is unsure of the impact of his father’s influence on him to impact this aim. These are, in fact, the main plot points that Lerche will likely keep should it ever decide to go ahead in creating “Classroom of the Elite” Season 2.
