A beautiful girl named Minami Kurihashi transfer to the girls' high school Gokurakuin ("Gokujyo") from Los Angeles, and she plans to rule Gokujyo with her cuteness as her weapon. However, a girl named Aya Akabane confounds Minami's plans on her first day there, and Minami deals with the unpredictable life on this campus.
Miyazaki launched the manga in Super Jump in 2009, and Shueisha published the fifth volume of the manga in July. Super Jump happens to be ending next month, but Gokujyo—. ~Gokurakuin Joshi Kōryō Monogatari~ will continue in a new magazine called Grand Jump in November.
