What is the plot of Spy Classroom?

The story is set after a devastating war when humanity realizes that weapons have become too powerful for their own good. The era of wars being fought in the “light” has come to an end while a new era begins of wars being fought in the “darkness”. Wars are now fought by spies with information and trickery.

The story centers on a man named Klaus, who was a member of a spy team called Inferno. After the destruction of his team, Klaus decides to create his own team, which specializes in “Impossible Missions”. Spy teams have already failed these missions, which means security has been doubled, and the rate of failure has been raised to 90%.

Klaus ends up recruiting seven girls, who are all washouts and considered to be the “bottom of the barrel” in the spy schools. However, Klaus sees their potential, and even though he only has a month to teach them everything he knows he’s hopeful that they will survive as long as they use every trick they possess to survive.
