Honan Academy (方南学園, Hōnan Gakuen) is a high school located in Tokyo.

Stride Club


Honan's Stride Club is so small that all members automatically enter into the Shogi club (which only has Ayumu) as well since each club must have at least three members.

Once a Stride powerhouse 2 years ago, now having to re-establish the club due to dissent and retirements from the former 3rd year students. Because of this, many rival schools, especially Shiki Dozono of Ichijyokan, found the school to be violent. Despite this, Honan has a mutually-respectful and cooperative relationship with Saisei.
