Classroom of the Elite Plot

The story takes place at Advanced Nurturing High School, a leading prestigious school with state-of-the-art facilities where nearly 100% of students go on to university or find employment. The students there have the freedom to wear any hairstyle and bring any personal effects they desire. The said high school is a paradise-like school, but the truth is that only the most superior of students receive favourable treatment.

The protagonist Kiyotaka Ayanokōji is a student of D-Class, which is where the school dumps its “inferior” students in order to ridicule them. For a certain reason, Kiyotaka was “careless” on his entrance examination, and was put in D-class. After meeting Suzune Horikita and Kikyō Kushida, two other students in his class, Kiyotaka’s situation begins to change. (Source).

Also, a big reveal of his true personality at the end!

Fans Favorite Characters


The main protagonist who is an unmotivated student and is very poor at communicating with others. While trying to become friends with others, he often fails due to his lack of interest and charm. His grades are intentionally average and he is very conscious on how he spends his points, however it is revealed that he has the academic aptitude and true intellect to make it to the top class if he wanted to, but for some reason he aimed to get into Class D. It was mentioned by Chabashira Sensei that he intentionally got 50 out of 100 points for every subject on the entrance exam. Despite not exhibiting any kind of fitness regimen, he’s incredibly well-built and is seen very skilled in martial arts, such that he held his own on a fight against the Student Council President. He is also shown to be extremely intelligent as he comes up with various grand schemes that fools and plays almost everyone in the school. In a flashback it is shown that he was part of an experiment performed by an unknown organization which is owned by his father, in an unknown facility called the “White Room” that forced children to participate in an immense battery of tests designed to raise and train children into teens with almost superhuman-like capabilities and he’s shown to be the only known survivor. He prefers to stay in the background and uses other people as means of implementing his plans whenever it’s necessary. He is considered as an unreliable narrator due to his mysterious background and lies.



She is an aloof, cold-hearted and an unfriendly student, who is considered to be an intellectual beauty that sits next to Ayanokoji in class and is also careful about how she spends her points. Like Ayanokoji, she has trouble communicating with others but unlike him she thinks friends are unnecessary. Ayanokoji is the only student in her class that she talks to and confides in him as she seems to express interest in his insightful yet mysterious personality and has her doubts about him and his mysterious past, believing that he is hiding much more than he actually lets on. She also has an older brother who studies in the same school as her and is the school’s Student Council President who distances himself from her due to the embarrassment that she is placed in Class D. She also has knowledge of martial arts, as she was seen fighting Mio Ibuki, a C-Class student and held her own against her, despite being ill at the time. Her attitude seemingly improves for the better as she acknowledges her own hypocrisy by admitting that she is no different than her classmates when faced with a serious down-sided problem.



She is one of the Top students of B-Class who is very much admired and respected. However, unlike most other students who despise students from the lower classes, she is down-to-earth and does not mind being friends with some of them like, Kushida and Ayanokouji. She obtained a huge number of private points through unknown means, and seemed secretive about it, causing Ayanokoji to wonder about how she got that many points. She also expressed her interest in Ayanokoji’s true abilities and true intelligence by even wondering about it, more specifically on why he hides his true talents from others. In the light novels, she becomes a member of the Student Council and she is seen to have a close relationship with Ayanokoji, whom she occasionally teases and flirts with, as they are seen to get along very well and work well together. Ayanokoji, however, spread rumors about her huge number of points, which were revealed to be legally obtained by her, to trap Kakeru Ryūen from Class C, though the latter caught on to it and decided to play along in order to find the true mastermind of Class D.



A popular girl who is also in Class D that has a seemingly nice and cheerful personality and is also looking to befriend everybody at the school. However, behind her cheerful and caring facade, she has an alternate personality that is violent, cold-blooded, detestable and manipulative. She also shows deep resentment towards Horikita, and yet she wants to get closer to her for an unknown reason. In the light novels, she was revealed to be from the same middle school of Horikita and assumed that Horikita found out about her dark past.



She is the main leader of A-Class, who appears to be disabled, causing her to walk with a cane. She is shown to be highly intelligent, as she seems to have very high knowledge of the school rules and the S-system. Ryuen from Class C mentions how she is still acting as the “Queen” of the school for being in Class A. There is an intense rivalry between her and Ryuen alongside their respective classes as she thinks his challenges against Class A are interesting but ultimately futile. In volume 5 of the light novel, she was revealed to know about the “White Room” and cryptically reveals that she knows Ayanokoji, where she met him 8 years and 243 days ago in the past. According to her, she knows him very well and everything about his mysterious past though he denied knowledge of her and doesn’t seem to remember her. In volume 7 of the light novel, Mr. Sakayanagi, Chairman of the School Board and an old acquaintance of Ayanokouji’s father, confirms that Alice is his daughter, thus explaining in part why she has observed Ayanokouji in person behind the window in the White Room.



A girl who is into photography, that was placed in Class D, due to her fear and nervousness, causing her to have difficulties communicating and interacting with others. She hates standing out and likes to take modelling pictures. She was originally revealed to be gravure idol, until her life was in danger of being chased by a stalker who worked in a convenience store and attempted to assault her, causing her unable to stand out anymore for the rest of her life. Fortunately, Ayanokoji and Honami came on time, saving her life and the stalker was arrested by the police, thanks to the security cameras located around the campus and the GPS tracking system on each students’ school cellphones. She then feels deeply indebted to Ayanokoji, causing her to have an admiration for him on saving her while inspiring her with his encouraging words of wisdom to always do more than she would have done.
