Synopsis of Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e

The story centers on the students of a school in Tokyo founded by the Japanese government to train young people who will be the institutional support of the country in the future. The teaching methodology of this school is unconventional, since the students reside in it, apart from the rest of society, and through study and their behavior they are self-supporting, using qualification points as money. The class is divided into four categories (A, B, C and D), in which A is the one with the highest level of intelligence and skill, and D is the one with the least attributes.

The main focus is on Kiyotaka Ayanokouji, a mysterious student looking for the most peaceful way to coexist with his peers, and his relationship with them, especially with his bankmate, Suzune Horikita.
