Template:Organization (DWMA) The Normally Overcome Target Class (also called NOT) is one of the two curriculum within Death Weapon Meister Academy.[1] The majority of the academy consist of the students under this curriculum.[2]


The N.O.T. Class the curriculum for non-combatants. Ninety percent of the students in the DWMA make up and follow this curriculum.[2] Akane☆Hoshi speculates that many students (particularly Meisters) whom are in this curriculum come for career opportunities though he mentions he cannot be for certain, as all Meister will have different reasons.[3]


The N.O.T. Class doesn't seem to follow any unique ranking systems and follows a more ordinary school curriculum of freshmen to senior.
