Kōdo Ikusei Senior High School, a leading prestigious school with state-of-the-art facilities where nearly 100% of students go on to university or find employment. The students there have the freedom to wear any hairstyle and bring any personal effects they desire. Kōdo Ikusei is a paradise-like school, but the truth is that only the most superior of students receive favorable treatment.

The protagonist Kiyotaka Ayanokōji is a student of D-class, which is where the school dumps its “inferior” students in order to ridicule them. For a certain reason, Kiyotaka was careless on his entrance examination, and was put in D-class. After meeting Suzune Horikita and Kikyō Kushida, two other students in his class, Kiyotaka’s situation begins to change.

Which the best of luck for you all and hope you can continue to provide more content for us to read (^-^)

  3. Thank you for your work so far on this series, I’m loving it so far. I would like to ask why chapter 9 and 10 are still incomplete so far. Is there a reason to that?

  4. Oh sorry, I meant volume 10 instead of any chapters. There are errors on some of the characters, such as in ch 2 v 10, where Ichonise is referred to as “he” instead of “she”. This seems like a translation error to me. I would also like to point out that this happens throughout volume 10 where the characters are referenced wrong.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. This version of volume 10 is partly MTL, I will reupload a better translation when its available. Thanks

  18. Can’t download the file due to link being not redirected by google home. It seems there’s some error in the captcha.

  19. Just wanna ask, when officials are out (starting Vol. 4.5), will you replace the fansub into the official one? I read it all thanks to your app (Zerobooks) but when I want to read again, I’d like the official ones (cannot afford to buy for few years)

    1. Volume 11.75 was released in a paperback format with limited quantities. At the moment we don’t have 11.75.

  22. When will season 2 vol 1 be finished. I am on the discord but I dont see where the updates are shown, just some non edited mtl links that are from 20 days ago or further. Thx for your work.

    1. We are still on it. Currently The prologue, chapter 1,2, 5,6 and Epilogue have been worked on. We are currently working on chapter 3 & 4.

  23. There are mistakes in the translation in 2nd year volume 1, and some parts that are hard to understand. Is that gonna be fixed soon ?

    Appreciate your fast work

    1. Yes this is a mtl but it’s edited to be readable. You’ll need to wait a few more months for a proper translation.

  24. I went on the discord but couldn’t find the link for the most recent volume. does anyone know where I can find it?

  25. For some reason I can’t download Vol. 4. When I click “Get Link” I get to various websites but never on the one I need. Why is that?

  26. Hi, there will be a revised translation for the second year, volume 1? That are a lot of parts that don’t make much sense.

    Thanks for all the work, I enjoyed reading it.

    1. Yes, a properly translated version will be available in the future (It may take till this yr end). The current version is an edited mtl.

  27. hello is there any information about 2nd year vol 2 release date ?

  30. Has translation of volume 11.5 started? If yes, can you please share the link? I can’t find link On the discord. I believe a blogger name “botman” has started translating.

  31. Is Volume 9 incomplete? Not really sure tho, but the page number is very few compared to other volumes, and it feels like some things were skipped.

  32. Sorry for the questions, but I can’t seem to copy the PDF file to the Books app, (iOs user) and also, the decrypt key is needed.

  33. Thank you for the response, so if I instal Adobe Reader, the decrypt key won’t be necessary?

  51. Thank you very much for all this translations. Finding this site and the Discord server has made me get by another day in quarantine. Really, Thank you so much.

  54. sorry to bother you, how long does it generally take to finish translation of a volume after the JP version is released?

  55. Hey Bro ! When Volume 2 of second year will be uploaded? And tell how much time does it take to complete the translation after the JP release.

  56. Please answer I checked the page numbers of the official and your translation of vol. 1 of Classroom of Elite. Why was there around 200-150 pages of diffrence?

    1. Have you read the book? Note that the page no can vary, what is important is the no of words.

  57. Why is there around 200 pages of diffrence between the official english version and your translation in vol. 1?

  58. Bro the sentences are spaced out quite a bit in each page also there is a fewer word count on each page then the official release. Rest assured, you won’t miss out on anything ,they are after all the same story

  59. Hi, could you update Volume 6 to be the official english translation, instead of the fan one?

  60. when might vol.2 2nd year be available? i know you’ll tell to join discord and all but cant you just tell me here
