Keep An Eye on Kushida – Classroom of the Elite S2 Ep 7 Review  

As Ayanokoji monitors Horikita’s leadership progress, feelings of jealousy erupt in Kei. Class D prepares for the Paper Shuffle Test in unity with confidence.

Check out last week’s episode review

Horikita’s growth has finally begun. 

I wonder if Suzune feels relieved now that Manabu is no longer the student council president, and that she doesn’t have to worry about being blackmailed due to his position? 

Although this episode was mainly set up, and Class D did not win the sports festival due to Ayanokoji’s refusal to help – we did get a few interesting tidbits. 

Who is the Class C Traitor During the Sports Festival?

First off – Manabe was the traitor in Class C!  

How could I forget that? 

Maybe because so much was going on during that time, but I completely forgot Ayanokoji had the ability to anonymously blackmail the bully-girl group from Class C. The caveat, however, seems to be that since Yukimura was in such a rush to white knight for Kei, Ayanokoji’s cover has been blown. 

Does Ryuen Know Ayanokoji Is Class D’s Mastermind? 

It didn’t take long for Ryuen to put two and two together and realize that Ayanokoji is always by Horikita’s side. Especially during every major event or confrontation between Horikita and Ryuen – Ayanokoji was present in the background, attempting to look unassuming. 

As Ryuen pointed out, it’s so obvious it is almost not plausible to believe that Ayanokoji is Class D’s mastermind. 

Mini Test Setup 

Was anybody else annoyed at how Kushida weaseled her way into the core group’s discussion about the mini test? 

I really liked how fast Horikita and Class D figured out how to leverage the mini test to their advantage before the Paper Shuffle test began

Horikita cut off Ayanokoji before he could finish, but I’m pretty sure Ayanokoji was going to mention Kushida’s biggest strength is her kindness. 

Kushida is completely beloved in Class D. All the girls enjoy talking to her, and most of the guys have crushes on her. Kushida uses her sexuality and feminine charms to achieve her goals slyly, while being a horrible person on the inside. 

I don’t know what she did to her middle school class yet, but I’m sure it had something to do with gossip or misunderstanding. I mean – it is Japan, after all. Saving face is a serious thing, and if rumors and suspicion crept into the classroom, I doubt that would be something those kids could easily shake. 

Especially when they have to see each other every day, and don’t wish to be confrontational with one another for the remainder of their school year. 

Either way, we should have good things ahead. 

I’m looking forward to the Paper Shuffle test.  

Very happy that Horikita had a good plan for once, and she considered the rest of the classes’ feelings. Also as Ayanokoji noted, Horikita has completely subdued Sudo, who will be a great ally in the form of a watchdog with his intimating physique. 

Anyway, I think I’ll end this review here. But tell me your thoughts. 

Does Sato Maya have any function other than showing how disinterested Ayanokoji is in women that he can't use?

What do you think Ryuen will do to uncover Ayanokoji’s status as Class D’s mastermind? 

Do you think the others in the core group noticed that Ayanokoji is the mastermind? 

And… 

Why didn’t Kei delete that last call log from her phone?  

(I feel like that’s going to bite them in the butt in the long run for some reason…)

I write in my personal time and I haven't published much at all. I don't know if that qualifies me as a writer or not, but I'd like to change that. I have a deep passion for travel, cinema and (mainly) East Asian things, but I plan on writing various things to keep it spicy. Let's prosper together ~ よろしくおねがいします。
