Kadokawa's Media Factory Bunko J imprint published the first light novel in May 2015. Kadokawa created two animated ads for the novel to commemorate the release (the videos are no longer available). Kadokawa published the novel's fifth volume on January 25, and the sixth will ship on May 25.
The light novel's story takes place at Kōdo Ikusei Senior High School, a leading prestigious school with state-of-the-art facilities where nearly 100% of students go on to university or find employment. The students there have the freedom to wear any hairstyle and bring any personal effects they desire. Kōdo Ikusei is a paradise-like school, but the truth is that only the most superior of students receive favorable treatment.
The protagonist Kiyotaka Ayanokōji is a student of D-class, which is where the school dumps its "inferior" students in order to ridicule them. For a certain reason, Kiyotaka was careless on his entrance examination, and was put in D-class. After meeting Suzune Horikita and Kikyō Kushida, two other students in his class, Kiyotaka's situation begins to change.
