Classroom of the Elite seemed to finally settle into its comfort zone this week, offering consistent goofiness and also some legitimately well-articulated drama. Not expecting Ayanokoji to be a traditionally “good character,” and instead enjoying him as some kind of scholastic Kirito stand-in, is letting me have a much more fun time with the show on its own terms. And given we’re already in the second half, I’m expecting the show to consistently ratchet up its melodrama from here out, something that will make it even more fun. We’ll make a good time of this show yet.
