The plot, it’s uneven. The good parts, the outsmarting other students, are really good, with an incredible amount of scheming to go into the setup for the final episode. But when it’s not operating at peak, it’s usually in a valley/

And the worst offender is the pool episode that literally has nothing else to do with the story. I usually can put up with a filler fanservice episode, but episode 7 was so mind-numbing puerile I almost skipped ahead. (The only reason I didn’t was due to fear of missing something important.)

Overall thoughts

This series has some good moments and a nice concept, particularly for those who like cutthroat scheming by teenagers, but it’s difficult to recommend on account of its lack of resolution and general unevenness.

Second Season

If it eventually has a second season it might be able to pull itself together into something remarkable, but without a way for the audience to continue following the story, it’s just unsatisfying.
