The cool, cooler, coolest high school student is here!
This story is that of the school life of a certain cool, no coolest, high school student, Sakamoto.
As soon as he enrolled to school, he can't stop gathering the attention of the entire class, no, the entire school.
His name is Sakamoto.
With him, merely jumping from side to side turns into the secret technique "Repetition Side Step", and errands from upperclassmen undergoes a transformation into hospitality.
You can't keep your eyes off of each and every action he does.
