The “Spy Classroom” light novel series also inspired a TV anime, which started airing in Japan on January 5. HIDIVE streamed the anime as it aired, and the second season premiered on July 13, again available for streaming on HIDIVE.
For English-speaking fans, Yen Press is publishing both the light novel series and its manga adaptation. Here’s a brief description of the story:
“After a devastating war, countries now fight secret battles. Klaus, an unusual spy, has never failed a mission, even with his quirks. He’s forming a team for an Impossible Mission with a high chance of failure. But the team members he’s chosen are inexperienced washouts. They’ll need to use every trick in the book, and some that aren’t, to prove they’re up to the task!”
The light novel series, featuring illustrations by tomari, started in January 2020. A manga adaptation by Kaname Seu was launched in Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Alive magazine in May 2020.
