Some theaters screening the film will give theatergoers a different bonus item each week with a new illustration by Ujiie, for the first four weeks the film is in theaters.
Seitokai Yakuindomo centers around Ōsai Academy, a former all-girls private high school that was integrated for both genders. The student body is split between 524 girls and 28 boys. Takatoshi Tsuda is pushed into becoming the vice-president of the student council, where he is the lone male member surrounded by girls.
The 12th and 13th manga volumes both bundled OVAs when they shipped in September 2015 and on April 15, respectively. The 14th volume (pictured above right) will also bundle an OVA when it ships on December 16.
