The first five are kinda obvious, because that’s the publishing order. The extras can be in whatever order you like, I guess, but Graduation Certificate has to go last. In First Love, Kusakabe and Sajou are still using their surnames, so it goes somewhere after their graduation and Sajou’s move to Kyoto but before OB. In Class Reunion, Sorano and Harasen are living together and his hair is slightly shorter than in OB but longer than Graduation Certificate. I’d say because he’s a model, they will change things around for his style often. Also in Class Reunion, Sajou is still getting used to calling Kusakabe by his first name, so I think it’s soon afterwards. The Night Before technically goes in the middle of Doukyuusei, but because it’s in a double with Wedding, if one were to read it accidentally too early, they would be confused. And I put Gold Ring & Silver Ring just before Graduation Certificate because I feel they’d buy them not long before Hikaru turned 20. Graduation Certificate goes last because it’s the furthest into the future for Sajou and Kusakabe. I assume this is the finale for the whole series, as sensei hasn’t done anything more except the bonus content for the movie, but who knows.
