Introduction

It is the story of girls who the dragons fell in love at first sight --

Story

What the dragons who destroy the world seek – are “D girls” that become their mates. The world was turned upside down with the sudden appearance of monsters named dragons 25 years ago—. Over time, superhuman girls were born possessing the power of the dragons, and they were called “D”. Yuu Mononobe, the only male in the world to be a “D”, was forced into Midgar, the academy where all the “D” girls were gathered. Yuu accidentally views the naked body of Iris, a girl attending the academy, and even reunites with his younger sister Mitsuki with whom he was separated at birth, and he then ends up transferring into the academy….!? A delinquent girl and the boy who was supposed to become the strongest assassin challenge the seven dragons that threaten the peace of the world—!
