Rokudo’s Wicked Girls Plot
Tousuke Rokudou, a first-year student at Amori High, a predominantly delinquent school, wishes to live a peaceful life with his friends. However, because of his incompatibility with his classmates’ behavior, he is constantly bullied by them. The only exceptions are his two closest friends who are also social outcasts. Frustrated by their treatment, the three wish they could stand up and demand the fun, peaceful school life of their dreams.
When Rokudou seemed to have lost hope, he received a mysterious package from his long-dead grandfather. Inside it was a priest’s robe and a mysterious scroll passed down through his family since the Japanese Heian period. This scroll contains a technique for warding off demons and evil spirits.
When Tousuke held the scroll, a strange glow appeared, leaving a strange mark on his forehead. He performed the ritual to activate the scroll’s power to defeat his delinquent tormentors.
The scroll appears to not affect his school’s delinquent population at first. However, when a delinquent girl stops a bully tormenting Rokudou, Rokudou’s friends realize that the scroll’s power does not ward off evil spirits and monsters. Instead, it makes the user popular with rotten eggs. After realizing the potential of his newfound ability, Rokudou vows to become stronger and use his power to achieve his dream of having a peaceful school life. However, unwittingly, he acquires a harem of rebellious schoolgirls along the way.
