We also have Council of Students that are the best and most powerful and basically dominate the school. One more thing that’s similar are the mind games. Most of the time you never hear what Souma or Yumeko are thinking, instead it’s the tag along (Tadokoro & Suzui) that have a game going through their head and going into a panic over what is gonna happen and how Souma/Yumeko is gonna win this.
