Youkoso V11C5 Part 11

Classroom of the Elite Volume 11 Chapter 5 Part 11

TL: Graze/Reg/Heero
ED: Graze/Heero


I had hoped that the discussion would end with this, but things seldom turn out the way you want them to.

“I have a favor to ask of you, Ayanokōji-kun. You did eat my food, after all.”

“Don’t you think it’s cowardly to pull the same trick over and over again?”

We were around halfway through our meal when the devil reared her head a second time.

It seemed that she had more in store for me than just the notebook from earlier.

“Cowardly? Given the way you go about doing things, shouldn’t I be the one saying that?”

“What are you talking about?”

“During The Class Vote exam the other day. You were the one who lured me into taking action behind the scenes, weren’t you? Answer me.”

“Wait. I didn’t-”

“Back then, my older brother may have been the one who helped guide me, but you were the one who was really behind it.”

It didn’t seem like she was just making a random guess.

That being said, it was also unlikely that the elder Horikita had leaked the information.

“I didn’t notice it at first, but I connected the dots after thinking it over carefully.”

In other words, she had managed to reach this conclusion on her own.

“You predicted how I would act every step of the way.”

“Even if I denied it, I don’t think you’d believe me.”

“That’s right. Of course, I don’t have any conclusive evidence. Even if I asked my brother, he wouldn’t say anything that’d even hint at your involvement anyway. But at this point, I’m almost certain of it.”

Little by little, Horikita had matured over the course of this past year.

That was a fact that her brother and I could both agree on.

However, Horikita’s talent had only truly begun to present itself once the discord with her brother softened.

Given that her big brother has known her for much longer than I have, he must’ve been well aware of just how high Horikita’s potential really is. Chances are that’s exactly why he’s so dissatisfied with her always trying to follow in his footsteps.

“You look awfully uncomfortable.”

“That’s because it feels like I’m in the middle of being interrogated.”

“Just forget it then. Your attitude makes it clear that I won’t be getting anything out of you.”

With that, she cut the conversation short. It seems that it’s going to be harder to manipulate Horikita from behind the scenes from now on.

“I’ve got one more thing to ask you, but feel free not to answer.”

The powerful look in her eyes seemed to draw me in, unwilling to let me get away.

“Do you think we can win against Sakayanagi-san?”

“I don’t think it’s impossible. That’s the impression I get after seeing these notes of yours.”

“…Very well. I’ll do my best to get the class to the place it needs to be.”

“You’ve been doing great so far.”

In Hirata’s absence, almost all of our classmates have been following Horikita’s instructions.

She was fully prepared to take leadership of the class and pave the way to victory.

Honestly, I wanted to thank her for taking the initiative and doing the things I wasn’t capable of doing myself.

“I’ll leave the rest to you as well. I’m fully prepared to follow your judgement.”

“I understand. But still, wouldn’t it be better for you to make the decisions on rules for the commander?”

“You can take care of that too.”

“…Are you really saying that you’re going to fight with just the information I’ve prepared for you?”

“I don’t really know all that much about our class anyway.”

“Good grief… If you think you can beat Class A with that, you’re just being naive.”

“Maybe.”

The two of us walked to the front door and I stepped out of her room.

“For the time being, I’ll thank you for today’s meal, but… please don’t use a method like this next time.”

I could already imagine myself being suspicious every time somebody offers me a meal from now on.

“Alright, I’ll come up with something else.”

No, that’s not what I meant.


TL Notes:

I was totally ready to do a triple release and finish off Chapter 5 today, but honestly, Part 12 is so boring and lame that I just didn’t have the motivation to finish the part in time to post all three of them. I’ll try my damnedest to get it finished this weekend and have Chapter 5 wrapped up by then. Chapter 6 is on the shorter end of things so look forward to that. Thanks for reading and waiting as I got these last two parts done. If you want even faster releases, send me a message over Discord and I promise I’ll translate a line once for every message you send me, once per day.

  1. “We were around halfway through our meal when the devil reared her head a second time.”

    This is why I read fan-translations. Much higher quality than the MTL version of V11:
    “In the middle of the meal, the devil strikes again.”

  2. These moments between Horikita and Kiyopon, it was a long time since we had anything like this.

    I can’t access the discord, but thanks for the translation, I’m really looking forward to chapter 6.

    ps: It’s weird how I still go to pastebin first to see if there are any releases and when I saw no, I went on reddit and saw that it was out, I have to change this habit, but it’s difficult since I always did it when you were translating vol 6. lol

  3. I think I’m more interested in her next blackmail attempt now. The most hyped chess match ever is approaching. It’s unlikely, but Kiyopon might be trying to show off with by teaching Horikita and not interfering in the match at all. Thx for the part.

  4. Thanks for the speedy and quality translations.

    I just finished the official translation of volume 5. It will still take a lot of time to catch up.
    We started with this volume 11 in mid January I think. At this rate we will be done by October, which is at least two years earlier than the official translation (estimated to be released in 2022). So I am very lucky to read it earlier cuz this novel is very engaging and therefore very thankful for the translation.

  6. Thanks for the chapter, again! Also, you don’t need to stress yourself and feel obligated to release the chapters faster. We know that it takes its time to translate the chapters, so want you to relax and take your time. We really appreciate your hard work! (sorry for my bad english :P)

  7. I feel like I should come up with something new to say, but I can’t really think of anything. I guess I’ll just keep it at a “thanks again for the translation!” this time. I’ll have something new to say next time. Promise.

  8. Thanks for the translation. I’d say that the whole chapter 5 is incredibly boring and underwhelming. I don’t like the way author put action only in the last chapter. Dialogues became boring, almost no development of the relationship between characters.

  9. Thanks for the speedy and quality translations.

    I recently finished official version of volume 5. It will take a long time for official translation to catch up with fan translation.

    We started with this volume in mid-January and it seems that at the current pace, this volume should be finished around October. Since it will take at least 1 and 1/2 year for official translation of volume 11, I’m very grateful for this fan translation.

    Thank you
