If you thought high school was just about passing exams and navigating love triangles, “Classroom of the Elite” begs to differ. Season 3 is on the horizon, and it promises to take fans further into the mind-twisting reality of this distinctive educational world. So, fasten your seat belts, folks!
Why Classroom of the Elite Got Fans Talking
“Based on Shogo Kinusaga’s light novel series, Classroom of the Elite, the anime began with a banger.” This isn’t your clichéd high school anime—gone are the mundane tales of unrequited love and trivial misunderstandings. Instead, what you have is a brutal battle for social and academic supremacy.
However, the protagonist has shown zero interest in romance or academic achievements. Instead, he’s shown to be a manipulative dude who sees everyone as a tool.
This gripping narrative arc leaves viewers desperate for more, asking, “Why does he even go to this school?” The story breaks away from the genre norms to offer a psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

What’s Cooking for Season 3?
If you’re dying to know what lies ahead, brace yourself for another rollercoaster. Season 3 will kick off with the “Mixed Training Arc,” based on the 8th volume of the light novel. Here, students are taken to a mountain range and pitted against the terrain—and against each other.
