When average student Kimito Kagurazaka is suddenly kidnapped by a hoard of burly men, the last place he expects to end up is the elite Seikein Girls’ School! Now, surrounded by beautiful but totally sheltered girls, Kimito must deal with being their ‘Shomin Sample’-an example commoner for the girls to observe and learn from. But what’s the catch He has to trade in his thigh fetish for a faux love of muscled men if he wants to stay in this paradise…and keep his family jewels! But being in a school filled with gorgeous elites isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Between the eccentric Aika, the proper Reiko, the ready-to-strip genius Hakua, and the dangerous samurai Karen, Kimito has his hands full of trouble. And these girls are dying for more than a sample of this commoner! Despite the jealous bickering, the outrageous scenarios, and more than a few compromising positions, Kimito and the girls will learn more from each other than they ever expected.

The legendary golden armor fights once more against the horrors of the world. In the capital city of an elegant feudal society, a powerful spiritual barrier protects the highborn from the demonic monsters that roam the night. But for the commoners, from the moment the sun sets, their world turns into a living nightmare.

Hope shines in the form of graceful Makai Alchemist, Seimei, and her Makai Knight, Raiko. Donning the golden armor, Raiko faces the horrors to protect those who cannot save themselves. Yet wearing the armor alone is its own battle. But with his strong sense of justice and Seimei fighting by his side, Raiko will take the risks that come with the powerful armor.

Though they raise their weapons against the horrors that plague the land, there are more dangers that await inside the walls of the barrier. Politics, evil schemes, and demons of all kind—are these challenges beyond what the Makai heroes are able to face?
