Spy Classroom Review – Wasted Potential

March 5, 2023

Key Takeaways from my Spy Classroom Review:

  • My thoughts and opinions on this series
  • To help you decide if you should watch it or not

Ok, so you have read the title, you know there are about to be a lot of complaints and stuff in this article. But, before I get to the negatives, let me make this very clear, I actually enjoyed watching this anime despite its many flaws. That might not be so for everyone but, I think Spy Classroom at least deserves a chance despite being a flawed series.

So welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today I am talking about Spy Classroom. Again, I really enjoyed watching this series but, it has its flaws and as a reviewer, I cannot ignore them. And it is because I enjoyed watching this anime, that I know its potential and what it could’ve been. So let’s get started.

Spy Classroom Episode 1 Recap and Ending, Explained - The Cinemaholic


The plot progression kind of dies down after episode 3. Till episode 3, we have a goal to work towards, the “Impossible Mission”. But after that mission ends, the series turns into an Assassination Classroom type SOL where the team is trying to corner their teacher. The 2nd mission is brought up all the way at the end of episode 8. I appreciate the SOL aspects because they gave some much-needed character to the members of Lamplight but, they could’ve been cut short.

Like come on, you do training for a mission for 2 episodes, end the mission in one episode then you go SOL mode for five episodes? That is not good. That makes you question if this anime wants to be a serious Spy anime or just an SOL with Spy elements blended in. I seriously think it would have been better if they extended the missions and cut the SOL/training part a bit shorter. The plot itself is not that interesting either, it could have really used a better execution.

Another oooff moment. At least we got some details on each character thanks to the SOL parts. The SOL parts of this anime, kind of brought out the personalities of each character a little more. We are also drip-fed everyone’s backstory bit by bit, and I don’t hate that. My problem is that character development is severely lacking. If you want to treat Klaus or Lilly as your MC, at least give some character development to them. But no. Again, at least we got some more personality for all characters, in the earlier episodes they were all just cardboard cutouts.

Animations and Soundtracks

Now, this is where things are actually good. Spy Classroom is a really well-made anime when it comes to production. It is clear that the show got a decent budget because the art style and animations are pretty good. The soundtracks too, I like how they use different ending themes based on what character was the center of the episode. The opening theme is pretty cool too. So not much to complain about here.


Here are my final scores for Spy Classroom:

  • Plot – 4/10
  • Characters – 5/10
  • Animations – 7/10
  • Soundtracks – 8/10
  • Enjoyment – 8/10
  • Could have been so much better – 10/10
  • Overall – 6/10

Those were my thoughts and opinions on Spy Classroom. Again I’d like to repeat that this is all subjective and I actually enjoyed watching this anime a fair bit, look at the enjoyment score there for reference. So please let me know what you think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
