Shogo Kinugasa, the author of the Classroom of the Elite light novel, also announced that he is working on a new project that should be out before season 2 begins airing. The light novel was illustrated by Tomose Shunsaku. The new anime project is set to cover the entirety of the Year 1 arc, which was serialized from May 2015 until September 2019 and compiled into 14 volumes. A manga adaptation with art by Kawaisounako is currently ongoing.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed both the original light novel and the manga and describes the plot as:
Students of the prestigious Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School are given remarkable freedom—if they can win, barter, or save enough points to work their way up the ranks! Ayanokoji Kiyotaka has landed at the bottom in the scorned Class D, where he meets Horikita Suzune, who’s determined to rise up the ladder to Class A. Can they beat the system in a school where cutthroat competition is the name of the game?
