Character Debut

This is the fourth volume of the You-Zitsu light novel series.



From the popular creator duo comes the fourth volume of the new school revelation!!

The first part of special test on summer vacation ― Survival on deserted island had finished successfully. The stage moved to group battle on luxurious cruise ship. The test content in the second half has changed ― Brain game, where mind power will be put to the test. All students from A-Class to D-Class were divided into 12 groups named after 12 zodiac signs, each group has to discover a "VIP" person that exists within other groups.

While the students were surprised by how the exam was disrupting the mindset of competition between the classes, the elite students from each class like Katsuragi and Ryūen had grasped the aim of the exam and begun moving behind the scenes.

Meanwhile, Kiyotaka noticed something uncommon with his classmate Kei Karuizawa from the same group――?! "I'm―――a parasite, a weak creature that can't live alone." Settlement of the past can't buried.

Comes the fourth volume of the new school revelation!![1]
