Hierarchy is very much palpable in the society that we live in, but once it makes it way to institutions such as schools, then that’s where it becomes problematic and loath worthy. However, over the years we saw, different anime taking up this theme and went on to gain substantial accolade from fans and critics alike.
One such anime is ‘Classroom of the Elite’ or ‘Yokoso Jitsuryoku Shijo Shugi no Kyoshistsu e’ in Japanese. Based on the light novel series written by Shogo Kinugasa and illustrated by Shunsaky Tomose, the show has a unique presence in the mind of its avid fans, which explains their propensity for seeking out a new season. The anime has total of 12 episodes which first made its appearance on July 12, 2017 and concluded on September 27, 2017, airing on the networks such as AT-X, Tokyo MX, TV Aichi, KBS.
The cast of the anime included directors such as Seiji Kishi and Hiryuki Hashimoto while the list of producers unlike other anime goes long and that being consisting of Sho Tanaka, Masahito Ikemoto, Ashitate Harutaka, Aya Lizuka, Hideo Ito, Meiki Tusuuta, Yuta Kashwabara and Mitsuhiro Ogata, while the studio involved was Lerche, which has prolific anime such as ‘Assassination Classroom’ in its repository.
Classroom Of The Elite Season 2 Release Date
It has been quite a while since the first season of the anime got released and the likings are such that they are ever hungry for more content regarding the anime. However, in attempt to not mislead you and give you any false hopes, the show has not yet been confirmed on any platform whatsoever and no date can be assigned to the sequel of the anime.
However, the question remains, will it remain in this position for the rest of eternity. Well, let’s break down some key points which may help us receding this doubt into non- existence.
The show’s popularity cannot be questioned since it has a huge fans base, which also serves to explain the 100k followers crossing on Twitter recently. It has a good Google search volume too. Moreover, the light novel series is also available on Google reads, which enables a wider reach to a vast majority of people.
Before the anime, the light novel series got adapted into manga as well, which was written by Shogo Kinugasa and Yuyu Ichino and was released on January 27, 2016, having a total of 11 volumes and is still in continuation. Furthermore, the light novel series has 18 volumes in total. Now for season 1, first 3 volumes of the manga were adapted which leaves ample of source material both from light novel and manga to be adapted into the new season. And from this we can entail that more than 2 seasons can be consisted in the existing source material.
No data of the Blu-Ray DVD series is available leaving us oblivious regarding this aspect.
The production houses seem to reach to an impasse and obstinately remain their so, but if the fans build pressure on them we might be able to see some results. And if hypothetically speaking, the Lerche Studio announces the renewal of anime in the upcoming months itself (which seems highly unlikely), the production will take 8-9 months thereby releasing the new season in the fall of 2022.
Classroom Of The Elite Season 2 Story
The story revolves around a high school boy named Kiyotaka Ayanokoji who is an insidious prodigy and remains so throughout the story. He is the student of a high school established by the government of Japan itself titled Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School which mainly focuses to nurture students which can later help in the development of the development of the Japanese society.
However, there is a systemic hierarchy installed in this school, which ranks students based on their abilities and the inferior ones are most likely to get marooned in the lower rank class, called class D. Kiyotaka despite his unparalleled intelligence also happens to be the student of this class, and with this other two friends tires to climb up the ranks by involving himself in various affairs.
