Synopsis of Bishounen Tanteidan

Mayumi Dojima, a student at the exclusive Yubiwa High Academy, has lost something: a star she only saw once ten years ago. But help is on the way in the form of the unofficial, secret, and completely mysterious Handsome Boys and Detective Club! Rumor has it that these five handsome boys release Mayumi into their world of excitement, danger, and overwhelming beauty in order to solve problems within the school (which they supposedly created) for aesthetic rather than financial reasons.
