Classroom of the Elite is a Japanese animated series that is based upon a Japanese light novel series of the same name. The psychological thriller novel series is written by Shogo Kinugasa and is illustrated by Shunsaku Tomos. The anime series premiered on July 12, 2017, with twelve episodes as the first season. Adapted by Lerche studios, it was licensed by Funimation.
With the success of the first season, it was well-expected to return for a second season. However, after around three years, there is no news even about the renewal of the second season. With no official news about the second season since, if a workable guess can be made, then 2021 can be the expected release year or at least for some official news to be announced.
The story is about a shy boy, Kiyotaka Ayanokoji, who is put in D-class, the school’s inferior students class. The story is set in a not too distant future when Japan government will establish a different school. This school, Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School, will instruct, raise, and foster the upcoming generation, which will be the future of the country.
When Kiyotaka meets two other students in his class, he seems to change. He befriends Suzune Horikita and Kikyo Kushida. The storyline of the second season is unknown, but it might include how their friendship grows and how they face the challenges and obstacles together.
