Shomin Sample, short for "Shomin Sample: I Was Abducted by an Elite All-Girls School as a Sample Commoner" (In Japnaese Known as "Ore ga Ojousama Gakkou ni "Shomin Sample" Toshite Rachirareta Ken") Kimito Kagurazaka is a extraordinarily average. Average grades, average abilities, average looks, average love life (nonexistent). That is, until one day he’s abducted by a mysterious organization and forced to enroll a super secret, super elite academy for the richest, classiest, elitest of the elite young ladies. Turns out Kimito has been chosen as a “commoner sample” to better help the isolated and naïve girls cope with entering into normal society. But there’s a catch—Kimito isn’t allowed to show any romantic or sexual interest in the girls, lest he face gruesome repercussions. Can this commoner enter the secret world of high society?
