Synopsis of Jaku-chara Tomozaki-kun

For Fumiya Tomozaki, one of the best players in Japan, the "game of life" is the worst game there is. Despite being number one in the video game Attack Families, Tomozaki is a self-proclaimed lower-level character when it comes to real life. As a sophomore student, he suffers from a total lack of self-esteem, which leads him to completely give up trying to improve himself as a person. Instead, he accuses the real world of being completely unbalanced with no logical way to improve.

Aoi Hinami is an extremely popular girl in Tomozaki's class with perfect grades. She fits the role of a perfect heroine and is on the other end of the social spectrum than Tomozaki. However, after a chance encounter with Hinami, Tomozaki realizes that she is not as perfect as he thought!
