Teiichi - Battle of Supreme High
“I’m going to be student council president, no matter what it takes!” So begins Teiichi’s fight for the ultimate seat of power against 800 brilliant rivals at the most elite private school in Japan…The make-or-break “student council election” begins now!!
The 800 elite students of the top private school in Japan – Kaitei High School – represent the sharpest young minds in the country. Kaitei’s alumni have powerful connections in the political and financial world, and its top student -- the student council president -- is all but promised a future cabinet position. At the beginning of the new school year in April, ambitious freshman Teiichi Akaba joins the ranks of Kaitei elites as the top student from his graduating class. His dream is to “become the prime minister and create his own kingdom.” But in order to realize this dream, he absolutely must become student council president.
“I’ll bring down every single rival to become #1…I’ll do whatever it takes, no matter how dirty or underhanded. An effective strategy in my freshman year will give me an edge in the student council elections two years from now. The battle has already begun!” Teiichi gets a head start on his rivals and takes his first step towards his ambitious goal. But unimaginable conspiracies and challenges await him! Friendships and betrayals abound in the ultimate Battle Royale to outrank each other! The make-or-break “student council election” begins now!!
