The game takes place in a Netherworld School called the Maritsu Evil Academy. In this demon school, a good student is one who engages in delinquent activities such as ditching classes, or not doing homework. The student who participates the most in these kind of activities is known as the Honor Student, while demons who arrive to class early and do their homework are known as delinquents. Mao, son of the chairman, has not once attended class since the beginning of school and is known as the honor-student of Maritsu Evil Academy. His ambition for the future is to overthrow his father, who also happens to be an Overlord, and take his title for himself. After reading a few volumes in his manga, Mao comes to the conclusion that "heroes are the ones who defeat devils". From that point on, Mao resolved to become a hero himself, convinced it will help him achieve his goal.
Eventually, Raspberyl, the delinquent of the school, learns about Mao's goal and begins to worry. If Mao were to achieve the title of Hero, then it would endanger her position as the school's "Number One Delinquent". She makes up her mind to follow Mao, stop his plan, and once again secure her title. However since Raspberyl is a demon delinquent, she tries to solve the problem without violence and talk him out of it instead. Seeing this from a distance, Almaz, a hero himself, misunderstands the situation and tries to save the day. Mao accepts the challenge and defeats him, stealing Almaz's title in the process. With the title of Hero, Mao believes he is one step closer to defeating his father and achieving his goal of becoming an Overlord.

Class: Netherworld Honor Student
Mao is an Honor Student and son of the chairman at Maritsu Evil Academy. He has not once shown up to class, nor has he ever participated in any school activities such as homework or volunteering. He has a brain with an Evil Quotient of 1.8 million, and uses it to conduct experiments and evil research. Not caring about other people's problems, he will often take what he wants and use force to rule over others.
He is willing to do whatever it takes to defeat his father, even if seems stupid or is not something he likes to do. Despite his hatred for humans and heroes, he continually studies them, even keeping an observation journal to record his data. He believes that by learning about them, he can find a method to overthrow his father and take the title of Overlord for himself.
Whenever he finds a subject for experimentation, his glasses will fog over and he'll begin laughing to himself. If it's for the sake of reaching his goal, he'll ignore everything and charge straight ahead.
Class: Netherworld Delinquent
Rasperyl is the childhood friend of Mao, who goes by the nickname Beryl. She's considered a delinquent by Netherworld standards since she does good deeds and follows the rules. Like a typical delinquent, she speaks in a rough manner and refers to herself in a low-class manner. The reason she is pursuing the path of a delinquent is because she wanted to be unique compared to other demons.
For the sake of adding to her delinquent reputation, she will jump at any chance she gets. This includes doing her homework, volunteering, and going to class early. Raspberyl dislikes acting uncool and being just like everyone else. Her dream for the future is to become the Legendary Delinquent.
