Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe from the COVID-19 and having a great 2021. I never really understood the hype for this anime but now that I’ve watched it I know what the people were talking about.
The show is pretty simple or not, it follows the story of Kiyokata Ayanokoji, a boy with dead eyes and a dead voice mostly disinterested in everything. He starts school at Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School, dedicated to instruct and foster the generation of people that will support the country in the future. The school is the best and I mean the best, it’s got a movie theatre, a full on mall with everything from the most expensive electronics to basic shampoo being available. On top of this the students are given points to use to buy everything they need with each point being worth a yen. On the first day the students are all given 100,000 points and are told that points will be recharged on the first of each month. Kiyotaka is dumped into class D the place where the worst of the delinquents are kept and in this seemingly too good to be true scenario he and a few other students observe and contemplate and learn that the school is not as good as it seems and rather they have to use their brains to survive and further their own agendas to make it in the school with high stakes while also working out who’s a friend and who’s foe.
I admit my little preview of the plot didn’t give you much but I can’t reveal anything more than that because then it would be spoilers and I don’t want to do that for this one because the show is just too amazing to have anything revealed beforehand. The show has some surprisingly good music and good animation so no need to worry about that.
The characters are truly incredible with Class D having all the classic tropes of a classroom like the overenthusiastic and cute girl Kushida who’s popular with everyone in the class and declares that it’s her goal to make friends with everyone in the class. The central class figure, charismatic and cool headed Yousuke Hirata who acts as class leader. There is the class delinquent Ken Sudou who’s always getting into fights and causing trouble for the class, the classic rebel. Rokusuke Kouenji, the cool rebel who we don’t know much about. The shy girl Airi Sakura and finally the cool headed, academic, smart and beautiful Suzune Horikita who looks down the D class and declares that she wants to make it to the A class and will do whatever it takes to get there. Then there’s our MC Kiyotaka Ayanokoji who with his dead eyes and voice along with his detached and calm behaviour is shown to be a fairly worse than average protagonist only to be revealed later that all is not as it seems. Then there’s students from all the other classes all of whom have something interesting. Over the course of the show, secrets are revealed to show who is who and the alliances and enemies formed throughout the show all play a big role for one goal, the points and the rank of being class A. There is loads of character development and every character brings freshness to the show.
The show uses symbolism heavily such as Icarus and his wings, the concept of freedom which is heavy for Ayanokoji and even the differences between classes. As the school is made to replicate real life as closely as possible, there is deceit and lies all around showing us that the classic High School experience isn’t real life at all and if it really were real life then how different everything would play out and how cutthroat the competition actually is. The show uses a bus scene in which no one gives up their bus seat for an old lady and some of the characters being there show that though being of different natures and goals all do the same thing showing how even after considering ourselves different from others ultimately we all work towards the same goal.
The main high point of the show is how much of a genius Ayanokoji is and the way he works with Horikita and works his way around everything finding loopholes in the system and fully using the replication of the real life system of the school. All I can say that everything in the show is very good and each and every scenario as well how it all plays out with the mind games is really impressed. What I took away from this show is that looks are deceptive and that a philosophy might seem ideal at first but putting it into different scenarios might reveal its flaws. I really want everyone to watch this show atleast once and once you do you’ll be left wanting more with the stunning revelation at the end. There will be another season this year and I can’t wait. Go watch classroom of the elite.
Let’s take the track to the classroom of the elite,
Real good facilities enough to swipe you off your feet,
And the students in it are also a real treat,
Begin the session with an argument of a bus seat.
Charming personalities all over to take the lead,
You think you real the rules nah you misread,
To get ahead at this place you need to bleed,
Lots going on but one kid has different speed.
Kiyokata Ayanokoji here with his dead eyes,
He ain’t got no friends what a surprise,
He seems simple but his appearance lies,
To the students because he wants to rise.
He’s a genius beyond compare to the best,
Making moves making sure everyone passes the test,
At first glance with his actions no one’s impressed,
But hold your judgement until of his story you see the rest.
So that is it for this post guys hope you got some value from this. Thank you guys for reading to the end hit me up on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn with your thoughts and if you have any ideas which I should write about. Stay safe from the COVID-19. Thank you again and I’ll see you all next week.
