Kirari chou ga tonde tta sunabokori ga daichi ni mau
Haruka kanata soredemo sora ni akogareta Ah

Niramedo hoshi wa ochinai
Dou yatte tsukamaeyou, kono basho kara

Touzakaru gunjou no shita de byoudou ga wana wo haru
Heya ni hari ga ochiru

Hikage to hizashi majiwari entoropii ga michiteku
Seigenteki jiyuu no naka de
Kimi wa dou ikiru no ka tte towareta mitai da

Step by step

A bright flash of the butterfly soared up,
Leaving behind a cloud of dust on the ground.
Although the sky is so far away, she still yearned to reach it.
How many do not glance at the stars, they will not fall.
So how do I then grab them
From here?
Under the distant ultramarine, equality places its traps,
And its thorns wake up in our room.
Shadows blend with sunlight, and entropy increases,
As if asking: how will you live
Among limited freedom?

Step by step, gradually
We grab for the light!
It's not scary to change, so let's be transformed!
We will scramble up again and again,
For the sky is always waiting for us.
We are travelers to this room, called "Earth."

[Full Version Continues:]

Sounds of lies are coming to us - this is an unsure deception,
But we do not even think of escaping from it.
We throw out our memories, and the temperature in the room becomes palpable.
I'll hold out your hand, so grab for it - you're not alone in this world,
We'll fight together!

[thanks for visiting animesonglyrics.com]

Day after day, we certainly found
Something new in the place we belong to,
Because we have the bonds that bind us together.
The veil begins to fall from our eyes,
And we reveal our true strength.
We are approaching the sky, to which we should strive.

The butterfly gently asked the flower:
"Are you pleased that you are now here?",
To which he only smirked beautifully, turning away from the sky.
And we, after the butterfly, will reject the earth
And immediately lift up!

Step by step, gradually
We grab for the light!
It's not scary to change, so let's be transformed!
We will scramble up again and again,
For the sky is always waiting for us.
Standing in front of a door that can not be opened alone,
While I'm with you, I can find freedom!

Koudo Ikusei Senior High School appears to be a utopia on the surface, offering students unparalleled freedom and boasting a high rank in Japan. However, the harsh reality reveals a less-than-ideal situation. The student body is divided into four classes - A through D - each ranked according to merit, with only the top classes enjoying preferential treatment.

Kiyotaka Ayanokouji finds himself in Class D, the category for the school's perceived underachievers. There, he encounters the reserved Suzune Horikita, who believes she landed in Class D by mistake and aspires to climb to Class A, and the seemingly friendly class idol Kikyou Kushida, whose goal is to forge numerous friendships.

While class assignments are permanent, class rankings are not; lower-ranked students have the opportunity to rise by outperforming those in higher classes. Furthermore, Class D operates without restrictions on the methods students can employ to advance. In the competitive environment of this cutthroat school, can they overcome the challenges and ascend to the pinnacle?
