Is ‘Classroom of the Elite’ worth watching?
The plot is set in Tokyo, where the government established the Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School. This school is dedicated to raising the best and the brightest students that will someday lead the nation. In that endeavor, the school has an odd system that allows students to have complete freedom in school to mimic real life.
We focus on Kiyotaka Ayanokoji, who is in class 1-D, a class of inferior misfits. Although our protagonist is of unrivaled intellect, he would rather go through his school life in peace. But situations arise that force him to forgo that peaceful school life he wanted. Expect some intense and thrilling battles of the mind instead of fists.
