WELL, THAT’S ALL for Volume 6.
Syougo Kinugasa here. Lately, I’ve been pretty worried about an epidermoid cyst on my body, which has grown to about the size of a golf ball. Scary.
Next up, the seventh volume of Classroom of the Elite. The sixth volume was a kind of calm before the storm, giving me a chance to explore each character’s internal changes. The seventh volume will greatly advance the story. It will include things like a look into Ayanokouji Kiyotaka’s past, and a decisive battle with a certain enemy.
And then…yes, there will be an anime adaptation of Classroom. That’s thanks to all of you, and you have my utmost gratitude. Tomoseshunsaku-sama and I are both overjoyed, especially since we recently celebrated ten years of (metaphorically) licking each other’s wounds. I’ll definitely have the seventh volume out by the time the anime starts broadcasting! (I’ve never had a confident declaration like that go well for me, but there’s a first time for everything.)
Including the editors, publishers, anime producers, and everyone else, a lot of people are involved with this project now, and I’ll do my absolute best to ensure that their efforts aren’t wasted. Again, thank you. I’m looking forward to working with you all.
