Kumiko "Yankumi" Yamaguchi is a math teacher preparing for her first day at work at the Shirokin Gakuen Private School. She is given the assignment of being the Homeroom teacher for Class 2-4. However, the class is populated with a gang of Delinquents. At first, the class tries frightening her out of the job, but she eventually gains the class' respect after their failed attempts.

But Yankumi has a secret. She's a heir to a powerful Yakuza group known as the Oedo. Will Yankumi be able to keep her secret and be able to continue her career as a math teacher?
