Classroom for Heroes Anime Details, Art Revealed

Classroom for Heroes Anime Details, Art RevealedLast September, we learned that the light novel series Classroom for Heroes would be getting an anime series. Now we’ve learned a bunch of details and gotten our peepers on some key art.

Here’s who will be helming the series:

Director: Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Sket Dance, Higurashi: When They Cry — GOU)
Scripts: Naoki Hayashi (Higurashi: When They Cry — GOU, Citrus)
Character designer/chief animation director: Kosuke Kawamura (OniAi, ISLAND)

We’ve also learned that the series will be debuting sometime in 2023.

The Classroom for Heroes novels, by Shin Araki, follow Arnest Fleming, a girl who holds the top record at hero-training school Rosewood Academy. Her latest assignment has her tasked with guiding a mysterious but cheery new student named Blade, whose power might just rival her own.

The series made its debut as part of Shueisha’s Dash X Bunko imprint back in January 2015, with Haruyuki Morisawa providing illustrations. Classroom for Heroes has also inspired a manga adaptation by Koara Kishida, which runs in Ultra Jump magazine.
