There is a new trailer and key visual for Hero Classroom, and we now know that Higuchi Kaede will be singing the opening song for it. Higuchi Kaede is a VTuber affiliated with Nijisanji. Meanwhile, Akane Kumada (voice actress and singer) will sing the ending. [Thanks, Comic Natalie!]
The first trailer shows off four of the main characters, as well as introduces the premise. We do not get to hear the opening or ending songs here. Hero Classroom revolves around Blade, a hero who defeated the Demon King. With that out of the way, he’s excited to finally experience life as a normal person and make a hundred friends. Unfortunately, he’s attending Rosewood Academy, which is a school for prospective heroes.

There will also be a Friend Project to promote the series. People at AnimeJapan 2023 on March 25-26, 2023 will be able to meet Kawashima and Yamada, who play Reiji and Arnest, respectively. If you ask them to become your friend, then they’ll get an original exclusive t-shirt. This will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Hero Classroom will start airing in Japan from July 2023. It is unknown which streaming service will distribute it internationally.
