Youkoso V14 (Y2V3) Afterword

Classroom of the Elite Volume 14 Afterword

TL: Graze/Hina
ED: Graze


Hello, hello everyone. It’s Kinugasa, the world’s biggest fan of Ume Chazuke, served with green tea poured over it. (Rice Soup With Japanese Pickled Plums)

First of all, please take note that this is the first time the special exam has spanned for more than one volume. I wanted to write about the other students scattered about the island, but before I knew it, I had already hit the page limit. I’m really starting to feel the limits on how much a single volume can permit.

Back when I first started writing, I’d think to myself: “It’d be fine if I went a couple of pages over the limit, right? What’s the big deal?” Despite that optimism, most of the time I’m struggling to fit everything in. Why can’t they just make an exception for You-Zitsu and let me write over 500 pages per… No no, I’ll stop. That would probably just end up with me injuring myself in vain. I’d probably be just fine with a 50 page increase instead!

Alright alright. Sorry for the lengthy preamble here, but I’ve only gone o~n~e page for the afterword this time.

Honestly, I feel like we’d be perfectly fine without an afterword. Is there really anyone out there dying to read these anyway? I wonder this all the time, but I imagine it’s really annoying for the reader if the very next page after finishing the story is the afterword without any blank pages to space it out. (That being said, there simply aren’t enough pages, so it can’t be helped.)

While the end of 2020 is now in sight, I’ll continue working hard to finish off the year! Until next time!

  1. Seriously, the stupid page limit is one of the greatest limitations of the light novel medium and one of the primary reasons why so many series feel incredibly episodic. I’m very happy to see the author stepping beyond that, but it could be much much better still.
