While hiding such an identity, he blended into the class with the aim of living peacefully. However, Class D is a group of students who do whatever they want and are not given any private points.

Profile of Tsubasa Nanase

Tsubasa Nanase first appeared in the sophomore edition of Classroom of the Elite. She is a new first-year student and belongs to Class D. She is a high school girl with long blonde hair and a cute face. Nanase Tsubasa’s personality was vivacious and cheerful, and she possessed such a low profile that she used honorific expressions even when talking to her classmates. She also has a kind of inner conviction and never succumbs to violence. For this reason, he is looked up to by Kazuomi Houzumi, who has a rough personality, and Kazunatsu Amazawa, who is pro-violence.

Identity and purpose of Nanase Tsubasa

It has been speculated that all the characters in the long-running light novel Classroom of the Elite have a uniform mystery or hidden past. Among them, new first-year student Tsubasa Nanase was described as “a mysterious character whose true identity and purpose are unknown despite his cute appearance. In this chapter, we will discuss the identity and purpose of Yojitsu’s Tsubasa Nanase, and furthermore, his actions after entering Advanced Nurturing High School, with spoilers.

Is Nanase Tsubasa really a white room student?

The identity of Tsubasa Nanase, who appears in Classroom of the Elite, has been considered a matter of interest among fans. When she first appeared, she appeared to be a bright and pretty girl, but her sharp eyes, especially in front of Ayanokoji Kiyotaka, suggested that she was a mystery. Therefore, the theory that was considered to be her true identity was that she might be a white room student. The White Room is an institution created by Kiyotaka Ayanokoji’s father, Atsuomi, to train geniuses.

Ayanokoji Kiyotaka was even called “the best of the White Room,” but he dared to enroll in an advanced training high school that is antithetical to the White Room. This led to the White Room’s recrimination, even sending assassins among the new first-year students to expel him from the school. To spoil the identity of Tsubasa Nanase, she was not a White Room student. However, it is true that she is related to Ayanokoji Kiyotaka and seems to contain him.

Purpose of Nanase Tsubasa

The identity of Tsubasa Nanase is still a mystery, except that it is known that she is not a white room student. In particular, her purpose has not been fully revealed. Spoilers suggest that she is an assassin who is trying to get Ayanokoji Kiyotaka expelled from the school, apart from the White Room. It was depicted that Tsubasa Nanase harbors an intense hatred for Kiyotaka Ayanokoji for some reason and wants to take revenge on him.

In fact, Tsubasa Nanase was sent by Tsunenari Tsukishiro, the acting chancellor of the Advanced Nurturing High School. Tsunenari Tsukishiro is a person who has the authority of Atsuomi Ayanokoji, and he had advised Kiyotaka Ayanokoji to leave school voluntarily, but when he was not taken seriously, he resorted to various strong-arm measures. He also took a hard-line approach to Nanase Tsubasa, using her as an assassin to take revenge against him. In this way, Ayanokoji Kiyotaka was a character targeted from all sides.

Can Tsubasa Nanase expel Ayanokoji?

Spoiler alert about Tsubasa Nanase, a cute and popular character in Classroom of the Elite: she has not expelled Ayanokoji Kiyotaka as of February 2023. However, she did push him a little bit further. Tsubasa Nanase and Ayanokoji Kiyotaka faced off directly in the Desert Island Survival Exam. Here, Tsubasa Nanase lured Kiyotaka Ayanokoji to an out-of-the-way place and succeeded in putting him in a situation where he could not be touched. He tried to force him to leave the school by using force.

Ayanokoji Kiyotaka is a gem of a man, and has been called the “masterpiece of the white room. Even though he could not attack, Tsubasa Nanase was clearly a lower-ranked opponent. He dodged Nanase Tsubasa’s attacks, and in turn, drove him back. Here, Nanase Tsubasa attacked with a mysterious line, “‘I’ can’t beat you, ‘I’ will defeat you. Even so, he was unable to defeat Ayanokoji Kiyotaka, and on the contrary, Tsubasa Nanase was forced to admit defeat.

Nanase Tsubasa decided to cooperate with Ayanokoji?

Kiyotaka Ayanokoji blackmails Nanase Tsubasa for changing his first name during the battle, saying that it is just a personality he has forcefully created in his mind. After losing the battle, Nanase Tsubasa attempts to expel from school to make amends to Ayanokoji Kiyotaka for his failure to take revenge. However, Ayanokoji Kiyotaka stopped him. Tsubasa Nanase receives an unexpected proposal from him. It was a request to “cooperate with me.

Ayanokoji Kiyotaka gave the name Matsuo. Matsuo and his son Eiichiro, whom I will spoil in detail below, are characters closely related to Tsubasa Nanase. Ayanokoji Kiyotaka explained, “For Tsunenari Tsukishiro to try to expel me from the school would be to disobey Matsuo’s feelings in allowing me to enter this school, even disobeying his orders.

Then, Tsubasa Nanase, who until now had acted only with a desire for revenge against Ayanokoji Kiyotaka, showed a change of heart. She realized that what she had done was a mistake. After that, she formed a cooperative relationship with Ayanokoji Kiyotaka and began to provide him with information. She is depicted as conducting her own research on the White Room students and sharing information with Sho Ryuen.

Spoiling Nanase Tsubasa’s past

Tsubasa Nanase, who appears in the hit light novel Classroom of the Elite, was unable to expel Ayanokoji Kiyotaka from school, which was his goal. After battling him, they become cooperative.

Past (1) Eiichiro and I were childhood friends.


Past (2) Eiichiro’s father dies.

Eiichiro Matsuo’s father was serious about Ayanokoji Kiyotaka’s future and was growing increasingly concerned that he would be at Atsuomi’s mercy.

However, when Atsuomi found out about this action, he was furious and made Matsuo’s father and son pay for it.

The first thing Atsuomi Ayanokoji did was to force Eiichiro Matsuo to leave the school by thoroughly laying the groundwork. Eiichiro Matsuo naturally tried to transfer to another school, but even this was obstructed by relentless rooting around. Eiichiro tried several times to transfer to another school, but he was harassed by Atsuomi everywhere he went, and finally decided to give up the idea of going on to higher education. Eiichiro’s father was so distressed by this that he burned himself to death.

Past (3) Determined to take revenge on Ayanokoji

Eiichiro Matsuo, who suffered not only his own higher education but also the death of his father, had his life thrown into chaos thereafter. When Tsubasa Nanase discovers this fact, she is determined to take revenge against the Ayanokoji family. It was her revenge and her goal to make Ayanokoji Kiyotaka do exactly what Eiichiro Matsuo did to her. However, she changed her mind when she heard Ayanokoji Kiyotaka’s unexpected words during the battle in the desert island survival test.

Tsubasa Nanase realized that Kiyotaka Ayanokoji was also a victim of Atsuomi. The story of the second-year version of the series is still under development.
