Now, they’re getting a new priced-down edition set up for release where it’s set to come out on September 17th, 2019. This edition drops the DVD side of it and goes for just the Blu-ray side but it keeps all the extras from the previous set otherwise, all just for $29.98.

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.
