Crunchyroll describes the anime as:
Kiyotaka Ayanokoji has just enrolled at Tokyo Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, where it’s said that 100% of students go on to college or find employment. But he ends up in Class 1-D, which is full of all the school’s problem children. What’s more, every month, the school awards students points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and the classes employ a laissez-faire policy in which talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class. One month later, Ayanokoji, Horikita, and the students of Class D learn the truth of the system in place within their school…
The first 12-episode television anime series premiered in July 2017 and Crunchyroll streamed the series. Classroom of the Elite is based on the Kadokawa-published light novel series written by Shougo Kinugaki and illustrated by Tomoseshunsaku. The light novels began in 2015 and ran until 2019 with 11 main volumes and three short story anthologies.
