Season 1 of Spy Kyoushitsu (Classroom) speculation about release date and latest news.

Agent Classroom, also known as Spy Kyoushitsu, is finally getting a television anime adaptation after approximately 3 years from the initial publication of the first light novel.

The announcement for the anime came during the Fantasia Bunko Online Festival 2022 in March. The news, while not wholly unexpected, was certainly well-received.

Sugio Art Online, a popular Twitter user known for Anime leaks, corroborated the news prior to the official release through a tweet in February.

Enthusiasts were thrilled to hear the news and it did not take long for the Spy Classroom subreddit to be inundated by anime aficionados.

Feel, the Japanese animation studio, is producing the new anime, while Keiichiro Kawaguchi is at the helm as director.

Spy Classroom Release Date Speculation

The new Spy Classroom anime will debut in Japan in January 2023. Unfortunately, we do not have a specific release date as of yet.

We do have the official Twitter account, providing us with the latest news regarding the upcoming anime.

Considering that the anime was announced in March, it is reasonable to think that the studio did not hastily execute the project, taking its time to ensure the anime meets fan expectations – a common criticism among fans.

One comment on a subreddit mentioned, “Considering past performances, the anime might not do justice to the LN”.

Spy Classroom Cast

The official website for Spy Classroom unveiled the cast for the new anime.

The cast includes:

Character Voiced By
Lily Sora Amamiya
Grete Miku Ito
Gibia Higashiyama Nao
Monica Aoi Yuki
Tier Sumire Uesaka
Sara Ayane Sakura
Annette Tomori Kusunoki
Klaus Yuichiro Umehara

The cast was also announced in the official anime trailer released by Kadokawa.

As for the remainder of the staff for the anime, we have:

  • Director: Keiichiro Kawaguchi
  • Series Planner: Shinichi Inotsume
  • Character Design: Kinoshita Sumie
  • Anime Production: Feel
  • Original Illustration: Tomari

Where Will Spy Classroom Be Available?

The series will air in January on Japanese television. As for the rest of the world, we do not have any official information, but it is reasonable to assume that Crunchyroll will simulcast the series in the United States and other Western countries.

Regarding the dubbing, since Crunchyroll and Funimation merged, we can expect to see the dubs in various languages shortly afterward.

As of now, it is unclear whether Crunchyroll has exclusive streaming rights in certain countries. If not, we will likely see popular streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video acquiring the series soon.

Music For Spy Classroom

Nonoc composed the opening theme song “灯火” (Light). Nonoc is also renowned for composing the opening theme song for Astra Lost In Space and Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka.

Character Reveal For The Spy Classroom

Kadokawa’s official YouTube channel has been unveiling character reveal visuals and videos every week.

It began on the 14th of October, 2022, with Lily’s character reveal.

Next, on the 21st of October, the character of Grete was revealed.

Then, on the 27th of October, Kadokawa announced that Nonoc would be releasing the official opening theme song for the anime.

The very next day, on the 28th of October, Kadokawa revealed the character of Sibylla.

Most recently, we received the character reveal of Monica.

Kadokawa also revealed a visual for Monika and announced it on their official Twitter account as well.

Spy Classroom Plot Speculation

Since the producers have not yet announced otherwise, we can safely assume the anime will closely follow the light novels.

The story will focus on Klaus, the lone survivor of the spy team Inferno, as he sets out to train 7 misfits and teach them everything he knows in a month to prepare them for “Impossible Missions”.

How Successful Were The Spy Classroom Light Novels?

The Spy Classroom light novels are quite popular and highly rated. The 1st Volume has a 4.8 out of 5 on Amazon with almost a 100 ratings. The top reviewer commented:

“It’s refreshing, fun, and interesting. I would recommend it to anyone as a solid read. My only gripe is that characters could be further explored. I imagine that will change in future and it doesn’t detract from the story.”

The light novels have a 7.76 out of 10 on myanimelist while being number 5000 in terms of popularity. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. The top reviewer recommended the novels while commenting:

“A refreshing, wonderful, and entertaining light novel. For all of you who are fed up with fantasy or school settings, give this novel a try!”

The light novels consist of 6 volumes with 2 short stories.
