So you're probably asking whether Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e is good, or if it's worth watching.

Can you imagine going to a school that guarantees admission to your dream university, or employment for your dream job, and upon starting you realize you even get an unbelievably luxurious school life?

Me neither, but I do know if such a school exists, we will eventually learn that the price to be paid will exceed even what money could potentially buy.

The Plot

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e, or Classroom of the Elite, shows a story about that kind of school. In this anime, the students are ranked and divided into classrooms based on performance and meritocracy, which is represented by points. Every slightest mistakes mean punishments, and as expected of a Classroom for the Elites, punishments sure can be harsh.

It's an extremely interesting premise right from the first episode.

Though, I find that that premise is only what's on the surface. Our main character, while portrayed as a boring, uncaring, and lethargic, hides...something. What's that something? I wasn't really able to understand as well.

But basically, he is quite the genius. YouJitsu slowly turn into a psychological warfare among classes, in pursuit of earning the school's points. There's an almost constant and consistent, fairly decent tense and unnerving atmosphere.

And all still nicely mixed with a fair bit of fun moments, which helped provide a small moment of relieve from all the unease that this anime was pretty good at building up. Of course, there's quite an amount of mild fanservice, for the more cultured people out there.

The Audio and Visual

Art was great. I liked the design of the different characters, they look good. The backgrounds were definitely superb as well. YouJitsu's art style is sharp and so vibrant, and was great at changing that tone when showing scenes of gloom and desperation.

The voices were also fairly decent. I didn't really take in well the main guy's voice at first, his one seems kinda off. However, towards the middle I noticed that perhaps this guy's voice was chosen on purpose. If that were the case, then it's definitely an interesting choice.

Conclusion

A very good anime that is definitely worth watching.
