Contributing to this is the rise of rival school, Momonozono Academy, that has been taking in more students. A new clique called the Correct 5 now rules the school and has been targeting students whose families have not donated by making them leave school. The leader of the Correct 5, Haruto Kakuragi, is the most popular boy at Eitoku Academy. However, he secretly buys gimmicky self-help items to become strong.
