Yuuhi owns a sweet piece of land that Shuukui Academy is slavering over for their campus expansion. After some convincing, he leases it to the school, and in partial repayment finds himself on the student council and in the coveted position of resident advisor. The three popular sons of the principal decide to get revenge with daily rape threats and, with the help of his roommate, drugging Yuuhi and taking degrading photos of him. The art is competent, and some of the character designs are really nice. But the story is at turns boring and offensive, and leeches any enjoyment out of the reading experience.
