Synopsis for Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (Classroom of the Elite)
The Metropolitan High School for Advanced Education, funded by the government to educate new generations, brings together the brightest young people in Japan on one campus. In this seemingly perfect institution, the reserved Kiyotaka Ayanokouji arrives as an incoming member of class 1-D, where he befriends one of his classmates, the antisocial Suzune Horikita. At first, his classmates revel in the academy’s leisurely lifestyle, taking advantage of all of its state-of-the-art facilities.
However, very soon the facade of the Metropolitan High School for Advanced Education gives way to its true nature: only the classes with the best grades can fully utilize the school’s offerings, and class D is the furthest from that status. Class D, which is at the bottom of the hierarchy, houses all the “worst” students in the school. Following this rude awakening, Ayanokouji, Horikita, and the rest of Class D must overcome their differences and take on other classes to rise to the coveted position of Class A by any means.
