Written by Takemachi and illustrated by Tomari, the Spy Classroom light novel was first published by Fujimi Shobo in 2020. The main series currently has 7 volumes published with the 8th set to release on July 20. US-based publisher Yen Press licensed the series in 2021 and has since published up to Volume 3 in English with Volume 4 set to release in September. Spy Classroom has also received two short stories and three manga adaptations as well.
The light novel surpassed 500,000 copies in circulation back in September 2021 and ranked second in the bunkobon category of the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! guidebook in 2021.
Following a devastating military conflict, countries fight their wars in the shadows. One unusual spy, Klaus, has never failed on the job despite his quirks, and he is building a team to take on an Impossible Mission—one with over a 90 percent chance of failure. However, his chosen members are all washouts with no practical experience. They’ll have to use every trick in the book (and some that aren’t) to prove they’re up to the task! (Synopsis via Yen Press)
Erna is the first new cast member to join the Spy Classroom series since it began airing this season.
