The Strange Elder's Class is a group of five children that were learning martial arts from the Strange Elder. Afterward, they went to war for Soukai. Akame joined the class to gather information on how to undo her curse, even becoming a combat tutor for the Elder's Class to increase their odds of survival after the class narrowly repel Yomihime from certain death.
Hinata and Tobari takes Akame on the class to meet up with the Elder. Before war itself, the Elder's Class are all participated except Akame due to her injury has not recovered yet. Akame pleads to the Elder to go to the battlefield to assist the class and she arrived just in time on Mt. Kageboshi when Hinata is about to be killed by Yomihime.
Akame dueled Yomihime and force her to retreat and the Elder's Class withdraws after the battle. Hinata and Hisama promoted into Captain and Kumehachi waste most of his money on the girls, much to the class' frustration. Following the information obtained by Yomihime and under Elder's recommendation, they hunt down Umibouzu, a squid-like Danger Beast and defeat it. Using Danger Beast raw material and sending it to the blacksmith on capital, the entire class are now equipped with Meihou and Akame can participate in the war together after the Elder will provide medicine herb that will ease down her curse for a short time.
Following the Battle of Shiranui's fortress, the class was divided into two units. First unit was led by Hinata with Akame and Tobari working under her. The second unit was led by Hisame with Kumehachi and Suzumaru working under his command.
Suzumaru manages to fend off duel against Kyoukotsu while Akame earn commendation due to her effort of eliminating many Tenrou ninjas. When the wall was breached, the class immediately intercept the attackers and Kumehachi destroy the ladder. At night, the class fend off the attack against Soil Spiders while Hisame faces off Kyoukotsu, eventually beheading him.
After the battle, Hisame was promoted into Commander replacing Buaku while Suzumaru and Kumehachi was promoted as a General under Hisame's command. Hinata was promoted into General while Tobari was promoted to Captain. Akame, in the other hand refuses promotion to Captain and Ninja, stating that she can move freely as a Foot Soldier.
During the subjugation of the pirates, Hinata manages to capture Saiha and convinced her to work under her command. After the groom selection, the class was once again sortied during Tenrou's Invasion after Shiranui Fortress has fallen due to the defection of Waniba to Tenrou. Akame and Tobari make a feat by eliminating ninjas, further frustrating Kururiya that his ninja has taken heavy losses.
Before the main battle, Strange Elder shows Akame the medicine he has been working on and he will finish the job inside the castle before he can hand it over to Akame.
As revealed by the Strange Elder, he had apparently hunted down the fabled "Mermaid" Freak Species native to the Soukai Nation to extinction and feed them to his pupils in his class in secret. Due to the rejuvenating and vitality giving abilities contained within the Freak's flesh, Hinata and her friends lifespan's have been greatly augmented and enhanced, with the Elder guarantying that they could now live over a hundred years without fear of dying from disease or sickness or being greatly affected by old age.
The Elder himself having done this in an act of spite towards his former compatriots of the Tenrou Nation and his former master, Zuou, who desired to eat the Mermaid flesh himself to increase his vitality and lifespan.
