You think high school was rough, huh? Well, did your high school have a "shadow student council" that could condemn you to prison? No? Well, count your blessings, because Kiyoshi, Gakuto, Shingo, Jo, and Andre are doing hard time inside Prison School.

But little does he know of the shocking fate that awaits him!
