Well, it looks like Lerche is giving us one last PV trailer for Classroom of the Elite season 2. Just a short time before its premiere to boot. Check it out below:

The Scheming and Plotting Anime: Season 2

Is it just me, or is a school system designed to turn everyone into psychopaths not a good idea?

Kadokawa has just released a new PV trailer for the second season of Classroom of the Elite on YouTube. As you can see above, the PV trailer shows our main character Miyotaka is at it again with the scheming and plotting. To be fair though, he is in a school where they actively encourage and foster that kind of behavior. You can’t single him out for only doing what the school system is insisting that every student do.

So when can you watch the manipulation unfold? According to the PC trailer, Classroom of the Elite season 2 will make its debut on July 4, 2022. In the meantime, you can check out the first season on Crunchyroll or Funimation. Note that Funimation has locked the original Japanese audio with English subtitles behind a paywall, while Crunchyroll has both the English sub and English dub versions for free with ads. Thus, you might want to go to Crunchyroll for the time being. In the meantime though, you can check out more details and the new key art below.

I swear, that guy on the left looks exactly like Stiyl Magnus in different clothes.

Classroom of the Elite season 2 is the second season of the anime adaptation of the psychological thriller light novels of the same name by Shōgo Kinugasa. This second season still features Lerche (Assassination Classroom, Monster Musume, School-Live!) as the animation studio behind it. Yoshihito Nishōji is the director for season 2, with Hayato Kazano as the writer. Masaru Yokoyama and Kana Hashiguchi composed the music for this season. Lastly, Crunchyroll licensed this anime for its NA release.

So what’s the second season of Classroom of the Elite about? Well, Crunchyroll has an official synopsis for us here. Check it out below:

“Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School seems like a paradise, but in reality, it is an extreme meritocracy. In the class of underachievers, Kiyotaka has begun working with Suzune, who seeks to ascend higher. After a survival test on an uninhabited island, they get to enjoy a luxury liner, but a new class-scrambling test will begin! Will you work for your class, your group, or yourself?”
