Serialized In: Jump SQ.19

Akaba Teiichi is beginning his student career at an elite private boy's high school, which was originally renowned for producing many excellent naval officers. In its current incarnation, his school regularly turns out many important politicians and bureaucrats, and networking starts from day one. Teiichi is determined to become the school's student council president, a position which will help launch him into the political sphere after graduation. He has run his life so far by maintaining a perfect image, while never neglecting the darker side of politics.

Teiichi is an school life drama with the serious, ruthless, cut throat intensity of national politics. The art style is similar to Furuya's more recent works such as Happiness, Chronicles of the Clueless Age, and Litchi Hikari Club though aimed at a younger audience. Not what I would recommend as an introduction to Furuya but still a very good series.
