Crunchyroll will release the third season of Classroom of the Elite in January 2024.
Crunchyroll has announced the Classroom of the Elite Season 3 release schedule via its official website following its official reveal at New York Comic Con. The series is directed by Hiroyuki Hashimoto, Seiji Kishi and Yoshihito Nishoji for Studio Hibari’s Lerche (Toilet Hanako-kun, Given), with series composition by Hayato Kazano and character designs by Kazuaki Morita.
Shogo Kinugasa and Sunsaku Tomose created the light novel series adapted from Classroom of the Elite. Crunchyroll’s description of the series reads: “Kiyotaka Ayanokoji has just enrolled at Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, where it is said that 100% of students will go to college or find jobs. But he ended up in Class 1-D, a class full of students.” Furthermore, every month, the school rewards students with points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and classes adopt a laissez-faire policy that allows talking, sleeping, and even vandalism in class. The following month, Ayanokoji, Horikita, and the Class D students learned the truth about the system in place in their school.”
The positive reception of Classroom of the Elite Season 2 led to the announcement of a third season in February 2022, just weeks after the series ended. With Hashimoto returning to direct, Classroom of the Elite Season 3 reportedly cannot be released in 2023 as expected due to many reasons.
Classroom conspiracy of the elite
Classroom of the Elite is set at a highly prestigious educational institution called Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School. This unique school located on a luxury island accepts only the most talented and brilliant students who demonstrate excellent academic and extracurricular abilities. Students who pass school are guaranteed admission to their desired university while increasing their prospects of achieving high-paying jobs.
The story of Classroom of the Elite revolves around Ayanokoji Kiyotaka, a typical tsundere who enters the school and tries to keep his identity hidden. Kiyotaka is the embodiment of a handsome, brooding anime male protagonist who deliberately admits that he belongs to the lowest class. At Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School, students strive to climb the higher ranks at all costs. They are even allowed to sabotage other students to win bonus points – the island’s equivalent of money.
Classroom of the Elite Season 3 premieres in January 2024.
