    ...Imagine the administration being unable to accept no expulsions after a major test.

    I forgot Ayanokoji met with this mad scientist father last season who is apparently pressuring the school to expel him. My question is if He will finally get rid of two-face or vice versa, because this test should theoretically have her be invincible, and with a little persuasion, able to nuke anyone she wants with down votes.

    This is the most straightforward scheme yet, but what puzzles me (and there's always room for a last minute twist in Classroom of the Elite) though is that Kushida is content being a mere tool during this event. This seems like her best chance to finally expel Horikita without getting her hands dirty, as she has the most behind the scenes influence in the class. Not leveraging her popularity now makes one wonder if she will ever do it and bear her fangs?

    The stooge being manipulated by the A-class crutch girl is so obvious as an expulsion candidate that I fell like it must be a red herring and the real culprit will be sussed out next episode when the vote happens.

    Nice to see that Horikita's brother still cares for her somewhat, just with a spartan was of expressing it.

    So this came down to a matter pragmatism versus sentiment. Horikita wanted to leave no one behind, but was finally forced to accept that that just isn't realistic given their resources and situation. All of the classes had to navigate this, but class C has for the longest, presumably, kept anyone from being expelled.

    Speaking of other classes, the movers of B and D combining forces, so to speak, to avoid their respective crises was entertaining (Ryuuen is an interesting enough character to keep around for a while longer).

    Ayanokoji is less and less able to keep to the shadows now.

    Not a ton to discuss, as this set of games has little surface level 'a-ha' trickery going on, but Ayanokoji is maybe getting tired of holding back for his classmates, coming out both barrels blazing on class prez about his uselessness and his confidence to Horikita in Chess. Strange that his deal wound up being that he used to be violent to keep his class in line, but now is disappointed that he considered it when backed into a corner- that's not so bad, is it?

    I mean, he can be violent all he wants, but with Blond Boy and Ayanokouji in his class, that would not have changed a thing, except maybe a more permanent destruction of his reputation (and body).

    I recently learned that the story of Classroom of the Elite varies significantly from its manga which itself varies significantly from the light novels they are based on, leaving me to wonder why this is still compelling. Anime original writing staff aren't known to me to produce consistently high quality stories. I find my enthusiasm more cooled by the approaching end of this season and no announcement of another in sight (seasons 2 and 3 were announced together a coupe years before they aired).

    Speaking on the episode, the showdown played out very plainly yet with a clever little twist at the end with the chess move being rerouted in real time. I think it would have been more interesting if the teacher didn't spill the beans and we got to see walker girl muse over the possible angles at play for an episode or two before moving on.

    How is Koenji able to stay at the school when he contributes nothing.. or rather why? Since he refuses to follow any directions from his classmates, why does he even do exams and the other bare minimum to not get himself expelled? Why does he not also rebel against the teachers? What does he even want to accomplish here? That has never even been hinted at. He needs an arc.

    I presume this is the end based on the highlight reel credit roll.

    Some welcome resolution for Horikita's arc with her brother, and that's about it. More vague plotting and setup for a fourth season we may or may not get. So many plot threads dangling that I can say the story is currently unsatisfying, but I remain hopeful and, more importantly interested in what happens next... if I ever get to see it.

    Pretty sure the next seasons are going to come. The novels are very popular, and somehow, so is the anime.

    That was such a creepy way for siblings to hug...

    Her obsession with her brother, and his approval, was no secret. It's not much of a stretch for her to be a bro-con. That said, you could reasonably take it as light hearted sibling banter as well.

    I meant the hands on his chest type of hug. Siblings don't hug like that. That is clearly romantic wtf. Wrap you arms around, you brocon!

    well, there are worse show than this for sure.
    binge watched it and was entertained. I don't like the leader of Class A and I think it's funny as hell when she gets her walking stick kicked away.
    When the new principal did it I actually started laughing (because that came so out of freaking NOWHERE), but nice detail that Kiyotaka actually tried to stop her from dropping to the floor, showing that he became soft.

    I just hope he is actually soft and not "solely" a mega psycho, I don't want him to throw Kei away.
    She already had to suffer through waterboarding and took it like a champ/marine. She doesn't deserve any more shit done to her.

    Unlike Class C leader, who gets some kind of redemption or something? Wth... this is why I don't trust MC yet.


    I'm interested in a season 4. Seems like there is enough material ready already? If so, I'll be eager to watch.
