And each student has an amusing title such as "super high school good luck" or "super high school level hall monitor." Given that all their personalities go to the extreme end due to the extreme honing of their skills, interactions between them all are quite heated and often funny.

The main plot centers around the evens proceeding from their first day of class. The students are shocked to find that all exits have been locked, the windows are now sealed with metal plates, and a small stuffed bear claims to be their new principal. The bear, Monokuma, informs the students that they will spend the rest of their lives trapped in the school unless they're willing to murder each other to get out. Each chapter within the show deals with a student's murder and a subsequent investigation on who the murderer is. If the students are ever wrong, the murderer will be given his freedom while Monokuma will kill any remaining students.
