The "academy x mind game x romantic comedy" story is set on the "Academy" island where students battle to determine their rankings. Hiroto Shinohara earned the highest ever grade in this school's entrance exam, the toughest in the entire country. On his first day at the school, he takes down the previous reigning queen, Sarasa Saionji, and becomes the fastest ever student to join the school's elite "Seven Stars."
Except, he didn't really. It's all a lie. Now to maintain his top ranking, he must fight these school mind games with lies and bluffs. He does whatever it takes with the help of the cute "cheat maid" Shirayuki Himeji (voiced by Miku Itō in a previous promotional video) and even Saionji (who is actually a phony herself).
Satoru Ōno and Naoki Matsuura (Girls' Frontline episode director) are directing the anime at Geek Toys. Momoka Toyoda (Shadows House episode script writer) is in charge of the series scripts. Yumi Nakamura (Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku OVA 2-3 character designer) is designing the characters. Yasuya Yuki is the color key artist, and Ji Woo Park is the art director. Baek Ryun Chae is the technical director, and Keisuke Yanagi is in charge of editing. Ryousuke Naya is the sound director.
