After watching Classroom of the Elite that sugar coated cutesy moe induced sound of female VA will never be the same for awhile. Umika Kawashima is perfect for the role. Cast is in place by episode five more quiz show games moving forward

Nice Quiz Bowl battle this episode and we also find out whom the mechanic girl is. The president's younger sister!



Really didn't see that coming, at all. Though I guess it makes more sense in an assumable social scenario. I couldn't picture the president (Gakuto) finding a girlfriend that easily.

Also...wondering if she'll cause some tension with a Mari-Shiki-Jinko love triangle haha, I don't expect it tho

I mean just my thoughts but....

I mean I really like this anime but it bothers me how Koshiyama takes a whole minute to think things over like, "oh I need to press faster or I'll lose" when in reality he should only have 5 seconds to think for each round, and I know it's a small thing but because of this I feel like it's a factor to what makes other viewers feel like this anime is really slow. And it's kind of frustrating that it took him two episodes just to get the concept of just PrEsS ThE BuTToN ! ... But I guess it's nice to see Koshiyama learn slowly instead of the usual animes where characters learn things in the span of like an episode, haha.


MC is the typical nerd who's never talked to a girl b4 and while it's endearing to see his first moments interacting with a girl, it gets annoying with how distracted he gets with just the concept of said girl. But I guess over exaggerated moments makes for funny moments and are part of the reason why I love anime so much!.


Despite this being written after episode 2, I find it striking that I still agree with LeechSeed's main points. But with the caveat that there's a limit to how patient any anime can expect the viewer to be. Also I'm not sure how much I agree with the last bit about the usual exaggerated moments between the MC and girls are actually funny. But I was wondering after seeing this episode why I felt it lacked something though I generally liked it. I think it has something to do with the fact that after 5 episodes the MC is still facing those same issues as he was in episode 2, like how to press the button and answer a question. The only real development he has made is that he now wants to do quiz bowl rather than being dragged to it. Which means that all the development in this episode was more on the problems of buzzers and we learned more about side characters. That's not a whole lot for a episode. At this point I'm ready to see some development with our MC.

I agree the lacking is the character development, their focus was indeed more about their problem about not having a buzzer

Like any anime about a specific sports or competition type club, the character development would make it better for example Chihayafuru, Hikaru no Go, Baby Step etc etc etc.
This one is ok but not as good in writing.

The really odd part for me is when I think about this anime I don't really "watch the clock" waiting for it to become available. I've even considered dropping it. And yet when I'm actually watching an episode I find myself getting sucked in. Maybe I'm a Quiz Bowl otaku and never realized it.

I think it's because it keeps zigzagging about what kind of show it is.

Trivia questions and different formats are fun so each episode sucks me in. The video game format so far was the best lots of different type of questions and chances for bonus points way better than who can push the button fastest.

They've been doing a good job of keeping the show fresh by showing different types of quiz bowl competitions. That keeps it from becoming too tedious while the MC and the audience it learning about quiz bowl. My only real gripe with the show is the fanservice. While it's not bad in terms of anime fanservice, it just doesn't really fit in with the rest of the tone of the show so it always seems kind of jarring to me.

Is there a reason they decided to add a transvestite to the cast of Fastest Finger First?

I like that arcade quiz game. This was a fun episode. Nice to see the rivalry grow and grow. But what's that trap's endgame? hmmmm.
