Highschool of the Elite is a series that delves into philosophy and its subsequent analogies. The show, although it has a high school setting, delves into more heavy topics like what does it mean to live, etc. Now, the show has some funny moments, but you can’t shake off the underlying dark theme that’s apparent from episode 1. The show does a very good job of carrying that tone and keeping the viewers on edge at all times. And that’s not it, the series is highly philosophical and makes you think a lot about your existence and your relationship with people. In all and all, it’s a well-rounded series with a deep storyline and tense atmosphere.
Now, let’s look at the plot of the Classroom of the Elite.
