Youkoso V11 Afterword

Classroom of the Elite Volume 11 Afterword

TL: Graze/Heero/Hina

(Note: This is written by the author at the end of V11. The information may seem dated as a result.)

It has been 4 months. At this point, it’s become completely customary to release a new volume every 4 months.

Even with the arrival of the Reiwa era, your own Kinugasa still hasn’t changed.

Volume 11 is over. This time we finished the main part of the first-year story arc. The closing ceremony safely ended, but before we transition to the second year arc, the next volume is going to be about the Spring Break. The plan is for the next volume to focus on how the students changed throughout the entire year, and how they will continue to change in the future.

Also… there may or may not be some romantic developments. I wonder which one it’ll be!?


Anyway, since I just finished the main story for the first year arc, the first thing I have to say is… There aren’t enough pages!

I originally wanted volume 10 and 11 to be one big volume, but that’s completely impossible, right?

Once you start writing, the pages just keep adding up. There were so many things that I couldn’t even fit in these two volumes. Whenever I start writing a volume I think to myself “How am I gonna fill up 300 pages? How should I start?” But before I realize it, only a handful of pages remain! I feel like this has started to happen the more I write…

So, I’d like to write some popular stories that’ll carry over from this volume for Volume 11.5.


From here, let’s just have a chat for a bit.

I very rarely meet people who work in the industry, but when I do, they tell me: “I have no idea what you’re doing all the time. Please get on social media!” Even though I had made interactions because of blogging activities in the past, I didn’t like–or should I say–I wasn’t good at doing these kinds of things. I decided to give updates in the afterword, which is to me the most suitable.

Normally I’m working and sometimes I play golf. I don’t even go to the golf course (my skills are below average, it’s expensive, and I have no physical strength). I just go to the driving range and hit the balls for an hour or so and then I’m done. But that’s enough for me because it leaves me feeling satisfied.

Even if I had social media, I’d prolly only share dull things like that.

Well, even the afterword ends with this type of dull content!

I’ll see everyone again next time!

TL Notes:

This is the true end of Volume 11. More information will be posted about what is to come here shortly as an update on the main page of the website.

  1. Maybe this is just me, but I really love reading the afterwords bc I find the authors inner thoughts so interesting for some reason. Like what he felt during writing this or what he plans on doing next, his mini hints on what will happen in future volumes and his opinions on the characters he writes about. It’s also lovely that he gives insights to his life, I feel like it makes you appreciate the author more and make him more likeable. So once again, many thanks for going though pain and effort in translating this series! I really appreciate it and I’m sure so many others do too.

  3. I wonder which girl will snag Ayanokouji (Or will any reach him at all?).

    Does anyone else imagine the author as some old man based off these afterwords? I imagine this countryside grandpa that just does what he wants.
