Plot Summary


Kiyotaka Ayanokoji has just enrolled at Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, where it's said that 100% of students go on to college or find employment.

But he ends up in Class 1-D, which is full of all the school's problem children.

What's more, every month, the school awards students points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and the classes employ a laissez-faire policy in which talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class.

But among all the students who lead such self-indulgent lives, there is one who disagrees with it all and chooses to remain solitary, avoiding contact with others: the beautiful Suzune Horikita.

She has figured out that, even though the school gives students huge amounts of money, it also offers many means of "assistance for students with no money."

One month later, Ayanokoji, Horikita, and the students of Class D learn the truth of the system in place within their school...

The first episode is now up: http://www.crunchyroll.com/classroom-of-the-elite/episode-1-what-is-evil-whatever-springs-from-weakness-742255

Episode 1

Students getting 100k yen a month is quite extravagant, but of course, there's a catch, and that is they must perform well in school or else they will lose it. Kiyotaka's class took it for granted and look at where it got them. At least Kiyotaka himself was pretty thrifty about it spending only 18k of his allowance, but all of those other suckers who blew it all are now suffering seeing that they didn't listen or approach with skepticism. And then there's Suzune who is socially detached. That was a pretty strong start as it's one of the best first episodes of the season.

Seeing that this is by Lerche that Kiyotaka does remind me of Karma. While he isn't smart, he's pretty serious about his situation.

"We have 404 pages"



Edit:
It's working now.

Episode 1

Suzune Horikita reminds me of Yukino from OreGairu somewhat.

Visually, I am impressed by the quality of the setting and characters. However, it doesn't seem this show escapes from some of the generic tropes you'll find in similar school settings. Still, I think it's better than what I had expected mainly for its themes so far.

I'm curious to see how they plan to focus on their school system.

Ayanokoji Kiyotaka is a character that I also hope they plan on developing as the story progresses. There seems to be a lot of characters in this show so I do exect some to get less spotlight compared to others.

Didn't hear anything about this but wow is it great, love this type of philosophical stuff. Can't wait to see how this all plays out. Horikita sniffing out Ms. Overlyfriendly-usesherboobstocontrolboys was great, and another great sensei.

From all the shows I'm watching this season, the MC in this one is kind of a breath of fresh air. Just very calm and observative, he reminds me of 8man from Yahari. It was pretty clear from the beginning on what the "points" system catch was, wonder how a majority of 1D will live for the next month. Also the girls are pretty cute.



Also a nice little cameo of Miss. Sunflower (Himawari-san)

I thought it was underwhelming. Going in I was expecting a fodder class (i.e. Ass Classroom, Baka to test) and whatever drama with social castes. We started getting in it and i thought, the money comes from the inhumane labor of a working class that are pretty much slaves; and Horikita is trying to fight the 90 degree battle for the equality they were monologuing about. I also thought maybe the points are a loan, and the reason there is a 100% employment rate afterwards is that they will have to spend the rest of their lives in debt and working to pay it off.

Then the hook happened and as it turns out, in order to live you need to be responsible and not a piece of shit, but they need to do it as a group. So...it's sort of like real life?

*edit : Rereading it, I probably have to admit. If i thought it was underwhelming, it's probably because I just explained it to myself above lol My predictions were very wrong and it turned out to be a "beat the child/military camp" kind of reformation school and the focus is on teen drama.

I think Miss Sunflower got discontinued bro, sorry.

They went all out on the eyes for this one.

It seems interesting. It feels like a cross between Baka and Test and My Teen Rom-Com SNAFU.

I'm also gonna go out a limb and guess that I'll call every member of Class D "the worst kind of person" at some point. I mean, we already have Miss "Friends-with-Everybody!" and what I assume will be Mr. "Let's-All-Work-Together!"

I like the character designs and art style overall.

The show seems a bit darker and... "annoying" for a lack of better words... than what I was expecting.

I hope maybe for some more laughs potentially, but it doesn't feel that way as of this time.

I'll check out the next couple episodes before I decide to keep or hold, etc.

Suzune is attractive. And something about her cold demeanor draws me in a bit, but I would also like to see/know more about the teacher.

Other than wants-to-be-friends-with-everyone-girl does class D mean d-bags?

The moment they mentioned the 100,000 yen, I could tell right away that most of the class was going to spend all their money on useless things and have severe consequences. Kiyotaka and Horikita were the only ones smart enough to not fall for that.

I guess all the other students in that class are going to have to eat the "free" food for a long time.

I've seen a few people on other sites taking screenshots of the ED. It has the names of almost all the students and how much money they still have.

Interesting plot. I really like Suzune's character. She may seem cold now but I think it's for a good reason we will find out later. It will be interesting to see her develop as the story goes on.

She totally reminds me of Yukino as well.

It's interesting. Though as soon as I saw this scene, and given the fact it's both Seiji Kishi and Lerche, I was immediately thinking on Assassination Classroom. My heart sank at that point, and I thought it was going to be another class of runts getting kicked in the gutter. Though by the end I was hopeful the story wasn't going in that direction, given the school's supposed 100% employment rate.

The SNAFU comparisons are quite apt. The bus scene made me hate all the class members apart from the girl standing up, and yet by the end of the show, I was really questioning that girls motivation.

Ultimately how good this show is will come down to the quality of the writing. The premise isn't particularly unique, but at the same time there isn't a tried and tested formula for this type of show.

Bearing in mind the very last line is "It takes a great talent and skill to conceal one's talent and skill"

Is there a translation of the names anywhere, or someone willing to translate them?

I think that's 16 classmates listed, out of 24 or 25

Yeah...I see a lot of people saying this is good? But honestly, nine minutes in I just don't care about any of these characters. They're almost all entitled, self-possessed jerks, the protagonist is annoyingly laconic and cynical, we've got the Bitchy For No Reason Girl, and the opening scene with the asshole on the bus set a bad tone for this.

Hard pass.
