Yen Presslicensed the light novel in English and described the plot as:
After a devastating military conflict, the countries wage their shadow wars. An unusual spy, Klaus, has never failed a job despite his quirks, and he builds a team to take on an impossible mission – one with over a 90 percent chance of failure. However, the members he selected were without practical experience. They’ll have to use every trick in the book (and some that aren’t) to prove they’re up to the task!
Spy Classroom has now joined other delayed seasonal titles that include The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2, Kubo won’t let you be invisible, UniteUp!, Ayakashi TriangleandNieR: Automata (returns this Saturday).
