  • Article Breakdown:
  • Yuki Himeno is a supporting character from Classroom of the Elite who debuted in Year 2 of the light novel series and was introduced as a student of Class 2-C.
  • We first hear about her when she excuses herself due to a headache, which – in her case – seems to be a recurring issue despite Ayanokoji doubting her.
  • Later in the series, she becomes closer to Ayanokoji as the two of them become allies with a shared goal later during the school year.

Yuki Himeno is a new character in the series and a member of Class 2-C

Over the years, Classroom of the Elite has introduced us to a series of characters, some of whom became very important, while others remained secondary characters throughout. Yuki Himeno is a character who debuted in the cruise episode of Year 2, in Volume 4.5, and who has remained a secondary character throughout, but nevertheless, an interesting one, which is what prompted us to reveal more about her and provide you with more information on Yuki Himeno’s role in the series. What you need to know at this point is that she is a character from Class 2-C who was a member of Class 1-B during the first year of Advanced Nurturing High School.

Yuki Himeno’s first appearance was a rather… strange one. Namely, during the cruise, there was a party, and when Ayanokoji arrived, he was ushered to sit next to Ichinose. A group of girls was also present, but after a while, one of the girls excused herself with a headache. That girl was Yuki Himeno, and seeing how compassionate the other girls were towards her condition, it is implied that she often has headaches because of which she has to excuse herself in various situations.


Classroom of the Elite: Does Ichinose Like Ayanokoji? Relationship Explained!

Interestingly enough, Kiyotaka wasn’t really convinced that her headache was real, so he confronted her about it. She said that she wasn’t faking, to which he threatened to reveal to everyone that she was faking her illness; Yuki said that a headache cannot be proven and that while everyone does like him, Ayanokoji has a very bad personality. She then adds that she thinks that the girls are too friendly with each other. Calmed down, Ayanokoji suggests to Himeno that she should scream out loud there – no one can hear them and she will release some of the accumulated stress.

She teases him by saying that he should go ahead and scream first, which he does, but it isn’t a very loud scream, so Himeno thinks that he is merely messing with her. Still, despite that, she decides to do it and lets out a very loud scream, which surprises Ayanokoji. She adds that she now feels refreshed, and Kiyotaka agrees with it, but, she then teases him that he’s lying because his “scream” was not a real scream.

And this is how Yuki became a relevant factor in the series. Since then, she has been present in some chapters, although not in a major capacity. What is important, though, is that Yuki Himeno and Ayanokoji later became allies with a shared goal, which is an important moment in the series, as the two of them worked on bringing the students to their side as part of a larger plan later in the series.
