- Original author
“Hero Classroom” Congratulatory Animation!
I truly feel that the fact that the work is adapted is a true longing for the original author. Illustrations for novels. When it comes to comics, there is a time axis. And when it comes to anime, there are movements and voices. Each one does not exist in the text medium. As the original author, I am always excited with a fresh feeling.
- Light novel illustrator
Congratulations on your animation! !
The work Hero Classroom has been around for a long time as a light novel, and I feel that it created quite a lot of characters.
I’m looking forward to seeing those characters move wildly on the screen!
- Manga artist
During the comicalization, I was able to draw each character as if they were my own children, so I’m happy from the bottom of my heart.
I am very honored to be involved in this work! I’m looking forward to the anime!
In “Hero Classroom”, many attractive characters, regardless of gender, appear, and a rich variety of stories unfolds.
In the anime version, while maximizing the potential of the original, the characters are more attractive, the action is flashy and cool, and the fun that is unique to anime is pursued.
A strong staff is participating in the acoustic side.
And the animation is being produced at my old home, Actus Co., Ltd.!
We are working day and night to create a masterpiece anime worthy of the BANDAI NAMCO Group’s name!
Please stay tuned!
- Composition and script
Former hero and super creature. What such a blade wishes is a peaceful school life without fighting as a commoner.
It should have been, but nothing can happen in a classroom that aims to be a hero, and while it is unfortunate for Blade, as an anime, there are troubles and battles, so you can just enjoy watching without thinking too much about difficult things. It has become a work.
I’m aiming for an anime that will please all the fans of the original, so I’d be happy if you could wait until the start of the broadcast of “Hero Classroom”.
- Animation director
I’m Kawamura, and I’ll be in charge of character design.
Come to think of it, I think it’s the first time I’ve been involved in various works so far, and I’ve been able to do a fantasy series like this.
I’d like to draw attractive characters who do cheerful, fun and silly things, but also decide when they decide.
The plot of Hero Classroom
The plot of the series is very similar to Chivalry of the Failed Knight series where the female lead is a hot-headed girl with a high sense of duty, looking down on anyone who slacks off.
For a long time, there was a demon lord who tormented the world, a hero stepped up and challenged the demon lord, ultimately defeating him and ending his reign of terror.
The hero then created the Rosewood Academy with the help of an old acquaintance to help fledgling heroes achieve supremacy and rise up to the occasion when there is a need to defend the world.
After the hero’s battle with the demon lord, his power significantly diminishes and he decides to live a carefree life in the Rosewood hero academy and enjoy his youth.
However, that isn’t the case for him as he meets Arnest Flaming, the Rosewood academy princess who is irritated by him since he can easily rival her in power yet he lacks the motivation to do anything.
Their story continues as the king requests Arnest Flaming to show the hero around the academy.
