A new preview video has been published for Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e ("Welcome to the Classroom Where Supreme Merit Rules"), an upcoming TV anime based on a series of light novels written by Syohgo Kinagusa and illustrated by Shunsaku Tomose about a seemingly high class private academy where the competition is cutthroat.
The story of Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e takes place at the prestigious Kodo Ikusei Senior High School, a private school that boasts a nearly 100% acceptance rate for students who graduate to universities as well as tuition rates of 100,000 yen per month. After flubbing his entrance exams, Kiyotaka Ayanokoji is ranked in Class D, where he learns the hard way that the school is set up as a brutal meritocracy where students receive a point value equal to their tuition payments and where only the most successful students are treated well.
The original Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e light novels are published by Media Factory under their MF Bunko J imprint. The Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e TV anime features direction by Seiji Kishi and Hiroyuki Hashimoto and animation by Lerche. The series will debuts on AT-X on July 12, 2017, with later broadcasts to follow on Tokyo MX, TV Aichi, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting, and BS11.
