Meet Alisa Mikhailovna Kujou, the enigmatic “solitary princess” of Seiren Private Academy.

To make matters worse, Alisa has taken it upon herself to discipline the slacker who sits next to her in class, Masachika Kuze.

He’s the only person in the school who knows what Alisa is really saying, and he’s determined to crack her tough exterior and discover her true feelings. As these two unlikely classmates navigate their way through high school, their relationship takes unexpected twists and turns.
