Classroom Crisis

Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans

Genre: Comedy, Sci-Fi, School, Unification

First Aired: Summer 2015, 13 episodes

Summary: Every planet in the Solar System has been colonized as interplanetary space travel is possible in the future. Kirishina Corp. is a space aeronautics corporation on the cutting-edge of technology with an academy on Mars. The most advanced class in the academy, A-TEC (Advanced Technological Development Department, Educational Development Class), splits their time between classwork and developing rocket engines. The problem starts when the academy gets a transfer student that is also one of the managers of Kirishina Corp. A-TEC gets under close watch as their work is scrutinized and they learn Kirishina Corp. is looking to shut down their class.

Classroom Crisis reminds me of a downsizing company that worsens work conditions with the intent of getting employees to quit so the company does not need to fire them all. Put that situation in a science fiction anime and you have Classroom Crisis. Even after watching a whole season of this series, I’m not sure how I feel about it. While there are parts I enjoy, like the concept of a class of intelligent students working together to create the future of technology, there are other parts that didn’t keep my attention, like some of the bland characters that took up a significant amount of screen time. There was a full class of students and hardly any of them were focused on or showed development throughout the season. Their teacher, Kaito Sera, showed promise to be an interesting character, but I just couldn’t connect with him.

You might enjoy this if: you want to watch a school-based anime but also want it to be on a planet besides Earth. Also, if you’re way into rocket engines, this is the anime you should be watching.

You might not like it if: You have been on the receiving end of a company downsizing before. Classroom Crisis may hit too close to home for you.

Note to the Viewer: Everything about Classroom Crisis is new. 2015 was the release year for the manga, anime, and light novels.

  1. Yeah I didn’t care too much about it. It had potential to be really good but it kind of missed the mark
