Koudo Ikusei Senior High School, a leading prestigious school with state-of-the-art facilities where nearly 100% of students go on to university or find employment. The students there have the freedom to wear any hairstyle and bring any personal effects they desire. Koudo Ikusei is a paradise-like school, but the truth is that only the most superior of students receive favorable treatment.
The protagonist Kiyotaka Ayanokouji is a student of D-class, which is where the school dumps its “inferior” students in order to ridicule them. For a certain reason, Kiyotaka was careless on his entrance examination and was put in D-class. After meeting Suzune Horikita and Kikyou Kushida, two other students in his class, Kiyotaka’s situation begins to change.
The romantic comedy novel has been publishing since May 2015, and currently, has five main compiled volumes in print. Kadokawa will publish the sixth volume on May 25. Three days before the first volume was shipped, a special 30-second promotional video was released. A manga adaptation by Yuyu Ichino has been serialized in Media Factory’s Comic Alive magazine since January 2016. The manga has three compiled volumes in print, with the latest volume published on March 23.
