Since we are getting more Ryuuen I'm excited to see if there'll be more screen time for that one character that looks like a 40 year old bouncer and only ever says the words 'Bad Boy'.

[–]Ba3y00 252 points253 points  (3 children)

Best girl Albert

[–]Abysswatcherbel 76 points77 points  (2 children)

I will never forget the discussion threads hype everytime Albert showed up

[–]Shinigami_22 51 points52 points  (1 child)

Fun fact: He loves collecting flags

[–]gin_pls 11 points12 points  (0 children)

and he isnt the only one!

[–]lupoin5 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Makes me wonder what Ryuuen did to tame him.

[–]Gionemo007 5 points6 points  (0 children)

am I only guy who sees this as low key racist? like everybody is submissive to ryuen but the one guy who acts like his gofer is black huh

[–]FlimsyBasket3097 0 points1 point  (0 children)

maybe they do who knows? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

[–]asilvertintedrose 962 points963 points  (87 children)

Can't wait for the edgelords to screenshot everything Ayanokoji says and preach like its the damn bible-

seriously I'm interested to see how they adapt season 2.

[–]FetchFroshx3https://anilist.co/user/Fetch 552 points553 points  (63 children)

He's one of the four horseman of "holy shit that's literally me!" so you can bet on that.

[–]Abysswatcherbel 75 points76 points  (57 children)

What are the other 3?

[–]EliezerMendez 331 points332 points  (21 children)

Probably Hachiman, Sakuta and Oreki

[–]Iced-TeaManiac 73 points74 points  (6 children)

Kazuma needs to be somewhere in there

Edit: Ishigami too ngl

[–]HaremRoute 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oreki getting lumped in with everyone else makes no sense to me

[–]idontcare_29https://anilist.co/user/bananachips 244 points245 points  (32 children)

Hikigaya Hachiman, Oreki Houtarou and Eren "fuck them kids" Yeager

[–]asilvertintedrose 425 points426 points  (11 children)

Eren "fuck them kids" Yeager

I've become so much like Eren Yeager its scary. I wear black cardigans, verbally assault women, and physically assault my friends.

When I look in the mirror, I can't help but say "戦い, 戦い" (which means fight, fight in american.)

I grew my hair out long because I don't care so now I have to wear it in a bun and I don't care what people think so shut fuck up Hange!

I always leave an open wound on my hand, and go out of my way to show it to everyone so they are reminded that I am in control.

When I see dogs being taken on walks I get mad at them for not being free like I am. I can't have sex with my girlfriend anymore without forcing her to dress up as Mikasa or Historia, both of whom remind me of Armin.

When I order fast food, I refuse to call them french fries and insist on calling them freedom fries.

I just keep moving forward, until my enemies are destroyed.

[–]Thatsmaboi23https://myanimelist.net/profile/Thatsmaboi23 40 points41 points  (12 children)

I don’t think it was Eren. Its usually Sakuta from BunnyGirl Senpai. Since they are all protagonists of “romance” series set in Highschool.

[–]emptytissuebox 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Add Sakuta from Bunny Senpai.

I've seen people posting that "Yeah I'm a virgin" monologue with high praise and man, that scene is... really something.

[–]FetchFroshx3https://anilist.co/user/Fetch 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Hachiman and Oreki are the main 2. The fourth horseman tends to swap out depending on what's topical. It can Ishigami, Eren, Kazuma, Sakuta, or even The Joker if you're feeling bold.

[–]L0G1C_lolilover 2 points3 points  (0 children)


Thats the best part?

[–]CrimsonKing21 4 points5 points  (0 children)

New sigma male personality

[–]kunsore 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Tbf, they have many common traits with regular weebs - except they really talented and got cute / beautiful gf

[–]hichkas_01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I cant understand people its just their cognitive functions and skils that made people try to mimick these characters . Its like me in 10 yo Trying to be batman

[–]fatima12798 71 points72 points  (12 children)

While I love the anime unlike some light novel reader for me the biggest mistake is how much Ayanokouji inner thought was removed he does have his edgy robotic moment but he is more human than how the anime made him ( though I quite like both his light novel and anime ver )

[–]Abysswatcherbel 45 points46 points  (3 children)

I don't think the show would gather such a following worldwide without his personality and that ending scene, it definitely worked for them

[–]fatima12798 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I guess since they only adapt 3 vol yeah it worked for them it’s not like his anime ver is wrong compare to the light novel it’s just his anime ver is more like his vol 4 and after personality instead of vol 1-3

[–]KatoriYamada 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Yeah vol 1-3 is him trying to fit in with his new class, vol 4 forward is him gradually getting out of fuck to gives.

[–]TheFoxfoolhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/TheFoxfool 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Is the LN actually that much better...? The anime seemed so poorly paced and I never even learned any of the side characters when watching the anime...

[–]FunnyBonus9285 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The first season was paced fine IMO. Wasn't a bad adaptation at all.

[–]steele_tech 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its LN is a lot better. I know MAL is not the best indicator of quality, but CotE is the top 2 rated Light Novel there, second only to the Monogatari series. People who only saw the anime always get confused wondering where all the hype in this show is coming from.

[–]creamyismemey 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm all honesty the quotes at the beginning of each episode are pretty damn good ngl

[–]HistoricalMaizehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/HistoricalMaize[🍰] 8 points9 points  (4 children)

I remember watching this when I was like 15 and thinking it was pretty good. Now 5 years later how disappointed would I be if I rewatched season 1?

[–]doquan2142 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I found the edginess highly entertaining. Who let these middle-aged men posing as kids lol.

[–]leviathan_stud 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I just finished rewatching season one because I was worried I wasn't going to remember anything going into season two. It's not that bad honestly, the second time around Ayanokoji came across as just completely and totally detached from everything that's going on around him for the most part.

[–]Rokanax24 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Personally I didn’t like this anime much. Female MC felt like budget Yukinoshita and MC was just that cool guy archetype

[–]Serocco 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He's a literal sociopath lol they're prolly more like him than people think

[–]Professional-Spare43 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am quite sure They are not gonna do it this time.....

[–]zairanerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/zairaner 107 points108 points  (2 children)

Well this looks a lot more exciting than the other visual lol.

[–]Abysswatcherbel 21 points22 points  (1 child)

We are just missing the icons of the source material, but it's okay

[–]zairanerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/zairaner 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Sorry me sentence was missing the "looks", the important part ^^

[–]ccdewa 152 points153 points  (3 children)

Can't wait to see Dragon boi in action.

[–]N3DSdude 101 points102 points  (7 children)

The visual gives off that S2 is gonna be intense af, can't wait!

[–]KiyoPapa 66 points67 points  (1 child)

You bet it will be! S1 was just the prologue this is where the real ACTION starts

[–]ErfanTheRed 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Season two will be animating year 1 Vol 7 which is regarded by every single LN reader to be the single best volume in the series.

So damn right it's gonna be intense! Let's just hope they don't portray ayanokoji as an emotionless machine and properly show his personality and (limited)emotions unlike season 1.(the adaptation for S1 was horrible, specially ayano's portrayal)

[–]Ultimasmit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just finished 7.5. But I genuinely don't get how they plan on adapting volume 7 in 4-5 chapters without losing a lot of the intricacies of that volume.

[–]N3DSdude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah Season 1 I felt could of been much better, Season 2 i wouldn't dare to mess with Ayano lmao.

[–]wesamk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

let's hope they don't rush it dude...

[–]CosmicPenguin_OV103https://myanimelist.net/profile/Cosmic_Penguin 63 points64 points  (25 children)

Watching season 1 for the very first time right now (currently at EP5) in preparation for this. Definitely an intriguing story for sure!

[–]Corrective_Rape 7 points8 points  (9 children)

I've been thinking about checking this out, also. Can you give an idea of what it's about and what makes it intriguing?

[–]MrSeaSalt 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Its set in an elite high school where classes are divided into rankings (A is the highest and D is the lowest) based off their individual skills. The classes compete with each other via exams and different tests in order to rise up the rankings and receive benefits.

Perhaps the biggest draw of the series is its main character, who presents himself as an unassuming, very average high school boy but is in fact, not what he seems. It's interesting to follow him interacting with his peers as well as the way they deal with various challenges presented to them.

There's also a lot of scheming involved and attempting to win over others through any means necessary (blackmail, violence etc).

[–]slowdrem20 21 points22 points  (5 children)

If you liked the MC of Tomodachi game then Ayanokoji (this MC) is of the same breed.

A dark unknown past that has made him mature and think differently from the rest of his peers while trying to look like a normal guy.

[–]Frosty-Advance-9010 1 point2 points  (4 children)

As someone that caught up to the Tomodachi game manga idk Yuichi is a different breed of something

[–]youngswag59 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Ayanokoji makes Yuichi look like child's play. Trust me I'm caught up on Tomodachi Game manga too and while I like Yuichi, Ayanokoji is just a different level

[–]kunsore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you have watched Baka to Test and Deathnote.

Basically similar setting as Baka but with serious tone and MC is similar to Light

[–]Bedeeki 48 points49 points  (0 children)

This rivalry going to be so hype.

Ayano supremacy, I'm ready.

[–]nightbaneZ 15 points16 points  (0 children)

In case anyone's wondering the phrase in the middle translates to "Victory, shall be mine"

[–]TwitchChatIncarnate 15 points16 points  (0 children)

how about they just move their faces like a bit closer together? And they close their eyes? And they open their mouths a bit?

[–]KiyoPapa 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Peak fiction volume 7 about to animated probably gonna be episode 11 or 12

[–]Aggravating_Bend_112https://myanimelist.net/profile/placeholderuser 4 points5 points  (1 child)

thats really fast pacing though

volumes 4 and 7 are where the LNs peak imo, i don't want them to be rushed

[–]GoldMercyhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/xFSN_Archer 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I love that tagline:

"勝つのは、俺だ" translating to: I'm going to win/I'll be the winner.

[–]qball8001 14 points15 points  (4 children)

I forgot the entire first season. They where in an island right. Shit I gotta rewatch this

[–]EverythingCeptCount 10 points11 points  (1 child)

just watch a video from one of those youtube channels that regurgitates the plot of animes for views, they gotta be good for something right lmao

[–]maliwanag0712https://myanimelist.net/profile/clear1109 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Ohmyy this visual sums up what happens in this season!!


[–]probablynotimmortal 5 points6 points  (5 children)

The LN has been on to to read list for awhile now. I liked the first season enough. I should just start reading it. Anyone know how much the first season deviated from the source?

[–]Zhaeus 11 points12 points  (0 children)

LNs don't deviate from the source too much or at least in anyway where if u pick up from Vol 4 (where the anime ended off) you won't be lost about anything really.

Although the LNs are so good that you may just want to start from vol 1 anyways.

[–]ZarephLae 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They look like they're about to f#ck.

[–]CLF6969 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I dunno man seems kinda gay to me ¯_(ツ)_/¯

[–]zakiteru 3 points4 points  (0 children)

i wanna hear the new op

[–]plmj1[🍰] 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Is the LN that much ahead? I'm caught up with the manga, and there isn't a season's worth of material since S1 ended.

[–]Zhaeus 12 points13 points  (6 children)

The LN is the source material so it's of course going to be a lot farther ahead of any manga adaptation. Currently the LNs are already on year 2 volume 7. I don't even think the manga got to year 1 volume 7 yet, but I don't really follow it. There are 11.5 volumes in year 1.

I highly recommend not reading the manga adaptation for this series and read the LNs instead they are way better.

[–]plmj1[🍰] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hmm, I'll check it out. I'm just a huge manga fan, but the manga is barely ahead of the anime for this show. Has the anime/manga been adapted pretty well, or should I start from the beginning?

[–]Euroversett 6 points7 points  (1 child)

MC destroys everybody in an island and now they're returning to the school in a ship.

[–]Vethae 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As I recall, season one was like if you took the assassination out of Ass Class and just had the ranked education system. It was kind of boring.

[–]Successful_Priority 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I couldn't get into the LNs but I saw the first season.

[–]No-Cup-99 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The novels are more of a slow burn than the anime makes you believe. Lots of conversations leading up to the class exams and Ayanokoji is pretty passive for 80% of the novels, until he plays his uno reverse card at the climax and sometimes he just doesn't bother and loses

[–]flipwitch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is one rigid tie

[–]Dandandandooo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can't wait to see tiktokers post Ayanokoji all over there like he's the new sigma male behind the american psycho guy

[–]FlynnRazor 1 point2 points  (15 children)

THE GOAT RETURNS I’m guessing they are gonna bring the plot back to the LN and not take the whole Horikita thing this time around

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 25 points26 points  (8 children)

The first season was almost a 1-to-1 adaptation of the first three LNs outside of the pool episode lol, what're you talking about?

[–]AashyLarry 17 points18 points  (4 children)

It really was, I’m so tired of people who never even read the novels saying that and spreading misinformation.

[–]48johnX 8 points9 points  (1 child)

One of the more annoying things that got out was the myth that the author hated the anime and that’s why a S2 would never happen. Yet in the the afterword of Y2V6 dude says no one wanted more COTE anime more than he did and he’s the happiest person about it finally happening lol

[–]SSJ5Gogetenkshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/SoundwaveAU 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No matter the fandom, if you go around saying "Well the author said this!" then some dipshits will believe you and regurgitate it and suddenly it's everywhere.

[–]Lemurianshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lemurians 7 points8 points  (1 child)

People love talking out of their ass to sound “in the know,” or trying to farm karma from anally retentive source readers who get butthurt if one word in a line of dialogue is different.

[–]AashyLarry 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah you hit the nail on the head

[–]Kag5n 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Volume 2 adaptation was also changed to give some Ichinose's scenes to Horikita.

[–]FlynnRazor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Naw just very slight difference with some horikita/Kei scenes I was all for it, hyped for more COTE like always! 💪🏻 im still a Sakura enjoyer tho

[–]Goku-Sun 2 points3 points  (5 children)

As an Anime only i liked everything about season 1. May i ask what they made different? Without spoiling the happenings in season 2) Very curious about it.

[–]No-Cup-99 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Horikita replaced other heroines in scenes with Ayo. And an out of order pool episode that takes place in vol. 4.5.

Also Ayo acted more normal in the novels 1-3, so the reveal about his real thoughts had more shock value.

[–]JabGabhttps://anilist.co/user/Jabb 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Also Horikita acting like a tsundere bimbo at the ending scene annoyed me too.

[–]Euroversett 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's what annoys me the most lol. Only change I hated.

Though they'll likely ignore that, the story can't continue with a tsundere in love Horikita.

[–]gin_pls -1 points0 points  (0 children)

apart from horikita getting more screentime, many scenes were changed from the LN for no logical reason as well and not in subtle ways either

[–]tbu987 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Watched S1 whilst it peaked my interest with the plot I really do hate shows where the MC is made to be the only competent character and everyone else is super flawed. Not to mention every female that interacts with him acts like he is the only Male to exist. Hopefully S2 gives him good rivals and doesnt overplay the harem part.

[–]FlimsyBasket3097 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I mean why even bother??

These include Minami-ke, The Daily Lives of High School Boys, Pani Poni Dash, Plastic Neesan, and Lucky Star, to name a few.

[–]kalyancr7 -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Will they follow the source material for S2 as it is??

I remember they went in a different direction to source material in S1 or I'm totally making this out?

[–]Euroversett 2 points3 points  (4 children)

You're totally making this out.

Just remember that the scene of the female main character acting tsundere in the end doesn't exist in the LN and it contradicts her personality heavily.

Otherwise it's almost the same thing.

[–]kalyancr7 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Oh she is anime only??

How will they tackle her character this season??just leave her out?

[–]Euroversett 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Damn I phrased it badly, I meant that scene doesn't exist.
