Plot[edit]

Hyakkaou Private Academy houses the children of wealthy and influential businessmen and politicians in Japan, with many future leaders and professionals among the student body. In the school, the student hierarchy is determined by contributions to the student council that are fueled by an intricate gambling system in which students bet their fortunes against one another. Those who are unable to contribute because of their debts become "house pets":[a] slaves to the whims of those who hold their debts. Those who do not clear their debts at the end of their time at the school receive Life Schedules[b] which dictate their career and with whom they have to marry and have children.

Transfer student Yumeko Jabami is excited to start participating, but it is soon revealed she is the one who gambles for the thrill of it rather than the financial or social gain. With an exceptional ability to see through gambling scams, she quickly disrupts the hierarchy of the school, and the student council frantically tries to find ways to shut her down.

With 310 million yen in debt, Yumeko is now a pet. Yumeko and Mary receive Life Schedules in which all their future career and family choices will be pre-determined if they are unable to clear their debts. Yumeko meets bullying student Jun Kiwatari who tries to use his position as master to make her undress, but a crazed schoolmate named Midari Ikishima who carries a pistol for Russian roulette intervenes. Yumeko and Mary join a debt reassignment contest in which they can assume the lesser debts of one of the other players depending on how they finish, and of which the winner would be cleared of their debt. They are grouped with a quiet girl named Tsubomi Nanami, and Kiwatari who borrowed money to join in to humiliate the girls and is also Tsubomi's master. During the game of Indian poker, Yumeko reveals how Kiwatari has been getting signs from Tsubomi on her cards, but that she and Mary have also been giving signs to each other, and it now comes down to who can bluff the best. They convince Tsubomi to not listen to Kiwatari's advice and to free herself from thinking she is just to be a pet. Although Kiwatari thinks he has won the game, he learns that he placed last overall, as Yumeko and Mary had switched the values of their chips.

Although Mary has paid off her debt and is no longer a pet, she gives the rest of their winnings to Yumeko, who does not plan to pay off her debt yet so that she could challenge the student council president Kirari. Student council member Midari abducts Yumeko and Ryota, and challenges Yumeko to an ESP Russian roulette game: Each player must guess a sequence of five Zener cards; the one who gets the most correct gets to choose one of two revolvers in a box which were preloaded by the players with 0-6 bullets in its chambers, and shoot the other player a number of times based on the difference in their scores. Yumeko agrees to play with the conditions that they play only three rounds, that Ryota be the dealer, and that the loser must pay 1 billion yen, while Midari adds the condition that if the shooter intentionally misses, the other player can then shoot back. In the first round, Midari wins by 1 guess but picks and shoots Yumeko's unloaded revolver. In the second round, Yumeko wins by guessing correctly that Ryota would choose her previous guess as the sequence, but she again picks her unloaded revolver because she can determine its difference in weight. Midari reveals how she lost her eye when she challenged and lost to Kirari. In the third round, Midari and Yumeko each load two chambers, but Yumeko realizes the camera at Ryota's room is reversed, based on which hand he uses on the cards. But instead of going for a win over Midari, which would have guaranteed that Midari would be shot, she intentionally guesses all wrong, leading to a draw. Meanwhile, Mary is recruited by Kirari to join the student council, but upon leading how Kirari has viewed the house pets, she declines.
