The original manga's story follows the high school student Teiichi Akaba and his student government struggles at a private boys' school in Shōwa-era Japan.
The second stage play, titled Gakuran Kageki: Teiichi no Kuni - Kessen no Mime Mime (School Uniform Opera: Teiichi's Country - The Decisive Battle of Mime Mime), premiered in July starring Ryo Kimura as protagonist Akaba Teiichi and Jingi Irie as Dan Ookata.

Furuya (Jisatsu Circle, Lychee Light Club, No Longer Human) launched Teiichi no Kuni in the inaugural issue of Jump SQ.19 in May 2010, but moved the manga to the main Jump Square magazine in its March 2012 issue. Shueisha shipped the 12th compiled book volume on September 4, and the 13th volume will ship on January 4.
