Synopsis for Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (Classroom of the Elite)
From the outside, Koudo Ikusei High School looks like a utopia. Students enjoy great freedom, and yet it is among the best institutes in Japan. However, the reality is far from that. There are four classes, from A to D in order of merit, with only the best receiving benefits. Kiyotaka Ayanokouji is a student in class D, where the school sends his worst trash. There he meets the unsociable Suzune Horikita, who is sure she was assigned there by mistake, and wishes to climb the ranks to reach Class A, and the beautiful Kikyou Kushida, whose goal is to make as many friends as possible. Although staying in school is eternal, staying in classes is not, and students can use any method they see fit to climb the ranks…
