|aSt. Kleio Academy is a very exclusive school. To enroll, a student must be the clone of a famous historical figure. Wolfgang Mozart, Queen Elizabeth, Sigmund Freud, Marie Curie, Adolf Hitler-with such a combustible student body, it's only a matter of time before the campus explodes! SHIRO KAMIYA (2XXX- ) The only non-clone at St. Kleio Academy, a school dedicated to the clones of great historical personages. Shiro's father is a professor at the academy. Why is a regular kid taking classes at the school? Nobody seems to know for sure.
History repeats itself... Or does it? R to L (Japanese Style). History repeats itself... Or does it? St. Kleio Academy is a very exclusive school: all of the students are clones of famous historical figures such as Beethoven, Queen Elizabeth I, Napoleon, Mozart, and Freud. All of them, that is, except for Shiro Kamiya. As Shiro struggles to adapt to this unusual campus, St. Kleio's first graduate, the clone of John F. Kennedy, is killed. Are the clones doomed to repeat the fate of their genetic progenitors, or can they create their own destinies? And how does a normal boy like Shiro fit in?
