Revealing Ichika Amasawa’s statistics, her high academic and physical abilities are particularly noteworthy. However, her resourcefulness and critical thinking score is quite low, suggesting that she may not be very perceptive. Surprisingly, she enrolled at Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School while concealing her true identity.
Ichika Amasawa’s Personality
Ichika Amasawa’s personality is often described as the opposite of her cute appearance. Despite her exceptional academic and physical abilities, she tends to boast about her achievements without any humility. She has a capricious side and is known for speaking her mind bluntly, making her a difficult person to deal with. Consequently, she is disliked by her classmates and often finds herself isolated. However, she seems unfazed by this and doesn’t appear to care about her social standing.
As a fifth-generation student from the White Room, Ichika Amasawa received a genius-level education. To provide some context with spoilers, Kiyotaka Ayanokouji is a fourth-generation student.

Among the new characters introduced in this arc, Ichika Amasawa, described as “cute in appearance but with a devilish personality,” has garnered particular interest. In this section, we’ll delve into the revelation of Ichika Amasawa’s true identity, her background, and her motives, with spoilers.
Ichika Amasawa’s True Identity: A White Room Student?
To reveal Ichika Amasawa’s true identity, she is a White Room student. The White Room is an educational institution operated by Atsushi Ayanokouji, Kiyotaka Ayanokouji’s father. The White Room provided students with comprehensive education to cultivate geniuses, encompassing not only academics and sports but also martial arts, self-defense, and even diplomatic skills. It’s worth noting that Atsushi Ayanokouji strongly opposes Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School, and the White Room serves as its antithesis.
Ichika Amasawa’s Background
As for Ichika Amasawa, the details of her birth are revealed in the story. She was born through artificial insemination, where highly gifted male and female sperm and eggs were used in the process. Shortly after her birth, she was placed in the White Room. Consequently, Ichika Amasawa has never seen her parents’ faces and was raised without receiving parental affection.
Throughout her upbringing, Ichika Amasawa gradually became aware of her true origin. It is implied that this revelation created a significant gap between her previous beliefs and the truth. She came to understand the White Room’s policy of nurturing geniuses through artificial means, which led to her growing resistance.
Ichika Amasawa’s Motives
While Ichika Amasawa’s true identity is that of a White Room student, she was sent to Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School as an assassin with the goal of expelling Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, serving the White Room’s agenda. However, her real motives lie elsewhere. As of February 2023, Ichika Amasawa’s true purpose remains undisclosed. It is clear that she harbors strong resentment against the White Room’s methods and has expressed to Kiyotaka Ayanokouji that she does not see him as an enemy. These factors are considered key to understanding her true objectives.
“Does Ichika Amasawa Admire Kiyotaka Ayanokouji? The Complex Relationship Explored”
In Classroom of the Elite (Yojo Senki), the cute Ichika Amasawa, whose true identity is revealed as a White Room student, develops a significant relationship with Kiyotaka Ayanokouji throughout the story. Some readers have commented that “Ichika Amasawa’s feelings towards him enhance the story.” In this section, we’ll focus on the relationship between Ichika Amasawa and Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, breaking it down into two aspects for your reference when reading Yojo Senki.
Why Ichika Amasawa Admires Kiyotaka Ayanokouji
Ichika Amasawa, a charming high school girl who appears in Yojo Senki, is speculated to “admire Kiyotaka Ayanokouji.” Kiyotaka Ayanokouji was a student of the White Room, part of the 4th generation. He was celebrated as the “pinnacle of the White Room” due to his exceptional intellect, physical prowess, and overall outstanding qualities. Consequently, the 5th generation students, who were one year below him, were constantly compared to him and lived under his influence.
Kiyotaka Ayanokouji’s overwhelming excellence left no room for praise for the 5th generation students. This division led to some students admiring Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, referred to as the “admiring White Room students,” while others despised him, categorized as the “hateful White Room students.” Ichika Amasawa is seen as a typical “admiring White Room student,” and she openly opposes the White Room’s plan to expel him. Over time, this stance puts her in a difficult position.
Why Ichika Amasawa Was Expelled from the White Room
Regarding Ichika Amasawa’s post-expulsion fate, with spoilers, she was expelled from the White Room because she defied its orders. Originally, Ichika Amasawa’s true identity was that of an assassin sent by the White Room to force Kiyotaka Ayanokouji to drop out of school. However, as previously mentioned, Ichika Amasawa deeply admired Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, a trait typical of the “admiring White Room students,” and she had no intention of getting him expelled.
Additionally, since learning the truth about her birth, Ichika Amasawa developed strong negative feelings towards the White Room. These two significant factors led her to disobey the White Room’s orders. Naturally, the White Room did not tolerate betrayal and chose to expel her. Among fans, Ichika Amasawa’s expulsion has generally been praised, with comments like “It’s good she was expelled” and “Her unwavering affection for Kiyotaka Ayanokouji is adorable.”
“White Room Students Other Than Ichika: Who is Hachiman Sakaki, and What’s Their Relationship with Ichika Amasawa?”
In Classroom of the Elite (Yojo Senki), apart from the popular character Ichika Amasawa, who is known to be a White Room student, there is another White Room student introduced in the 2nd-year arc – Hachiman Sakaki. Hachiman Sakaki plays a significant role in the story and has a complex relationship with Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, similar to Ichika Amasawa. In this section, we will delve into the character of Hachiman Sakaki, their plans, objectives, and their relationship with Ichika Amasawa.
Hachiman Sakaki: Another White Room Student
In the 2nd-year arc of Classroom of the Elite, it’s revealed that another 1st-year student is a White Room student, and that student is Hachiman Sakaki. Hachiman Sakaki initially belonged to Class 1-B and emphasized that he came from the same middle school as Horikita Suzune and Kushida Kikyou. However, it later turns out that this was a lie. Hachiman Sakaki is portrayed as an academically excellent student with strong communication skills. He takes on a leadership role within Class B and also joins the student council, making a name for himself.
However, his true identity is that of a White Room student, and he was sent as an assassin to make Kiyotaka Ayanokouji drop out of school. Unlike Ichika Amasawa, who admires Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, Hachiman Sakaki despises him. He belongs to the category of “hateful White Room students” who resent Kiyotaka Ayanokouji for overshadowing their achievements. Despite his remarkable abilities as a White Room student, he has never received the recognition he desired due to Kiyotaka’s superiority.
The Relationship Between Ichika Amasawa and Hachiman Sakaki
Ichika Amasawa and Hachiman Sakaki had a pre-existing relationship before entering Advanced Nurturing High School. Both of them were 5th-generation White Room students. While the story doesn’t explicitly reveal the extent of their relationship or whether they were particularly close, their longer association compared to other 1st-year students suggests some level of trust between them.
Hachiman Sakaki’s Plans and Objectives
Hachiman Sakaki’s primary objective was to force Kiyotaka Ayanokouji to drop out of school, essentially acting as an assassin for the White Room. He pursued this goal to prove that he was a superior White Room student compared to Kiyotaka. His motivation stemmed from a deep desire to erase the bitter memories of never being praised or acknowledged due to Kiyotaka’s overwhelming excellence.
To achieve his objective, Hachiman Sakaki first attempted to approach Kushida Kikyou, who had knowledge of Kiyotaka’s past, and threatened to reveal that information to manipulate her into supporting him. However, his plan was foiled when Kiyotaka discovered his involvement in pushing two students, Komiya Yousuke and Konishi Rokusuke, off a cliff during the survival island test. This revelation led to Hachiman Sakaki’s downfall, while Ichika Amasawa remained at Advanced Nurturing High School after his expulsion.
