Goodreads Synopsis:

Can high school delinquent Mafuyu clean up her act and still kick some butt?!

Mafuyu is the no-nonsense, take-charge and hard-hitting leader of her high school gang. But when she gets expelled for being a delinquent, her mother, fed up with her daughter's wayward ways, sends Mafuyu to an isolated school far off in the country.

It's Mafuyu's last year of high school! With Miyabi and most of the delinquents safely graduated, Mafuyu and her friends are looking forward to a peaceful final year. But a mysterious new first-year is up to something sinister, and her schemes quickly take Mr. Saeki out of the picture. Now the fate of the whole school rests on the shoulders of the suddenly advisorless Public Morals Club!


The seniors have graduated, and now there are new first years. Some of the students are still missing the seniors, and then we meet Hanabusa's younger sister. She's calculating like him, but in a very different way, and with no attachments to anyone yet. No one really knows what she's up to yet, why she's going to this school or if she's helping their father in the bet. And then she throws a curveball at Mr. Saeki.
I didn't see this one coming, nor did anyone else, and it's still unknown what he's doing. It leaves several people with questions, and it leaves the Public Morals Club floundering for a bit. Amongst all of this, there's suddenly a new rivalry forming between Midorigaoka and Kiyama, because of an unknown student causing trouble.
The humor in this series is quite fun, but it's also nice to see a real plot line happening after a while. I like the mix of serious and comedy.
I'm excited to read the next one.
