Teiichi: Battle for Supreme High

Teiichi Akaba has committed his life to becoming the next student council president at Kaitei College, the most elite private Japanese school of choice. Actually, Teiichi has committed his life to becoming prime minister and ruling his own country; he’s prepared to crush the competition by any means necessary!
In this absurdist satire of Japan’s elitist pathways to the seats of power, sabotage, bribery, ritual suicide, fisticuffs and more than a few unspoken crushes charge the boys’ all out warfare. Achingly relevant, absolutely hilarious and based on Usamaru Furuya’s manga.

Starring Masaki Suda, Shuhei Nomura, Ryoma Takeuchi, Shotaro Mamiya, Jun Shison
