One month has passed since the end of CROWS II. Genji Takiya and Tamao Serizawa have graduated and moved on, and Suzuran Boy’s High School is about to ring in a new schoolyear. This leaves a gaggle of newly-minted seniors scrambling to reach the vacant “top” slot at Suzuran. But arriving to throw a monkey wrench into the power structure at Suzuran are two new students. First, there’s Kazeo Kaburagi, a senior transfer student who does what he pleases and shows no interest in taking part in the fight to the top. Then there’s enigmatic freshman, Ryohei Kagami, with a cool stoicism on the surface but a violently pugnacious fire burning within. The two newbies have little in common with each other, except for the fact that they’ll both find themselves at the centre of Suzuran High’s greatest battle.
