But help is on the way in the form of the unofficial, secret, and extremely mysterious Handsome Boys and Detective Club! These five handsome boys are supposed to take Mayumi into their world of excitement, danger, and overwhelming beauty to solve problems within the school (which they supposedly created) for aesthetic, not financial, reasons.
