Sonny Boy is an original anime by Studio Madhouse. Its status means that we can't yet tell where this is going, but here's what we know so far: it all starts with a classroom of 36 students on a regular summer day. The day, of course, stops being regular when the high-schoolers are transported into another dimension, school building and all.

Strangely, their teachers and other adults escaped that fate, so the students find themselves in completely unfamiliar territory, without any instruction and without rules. Additionally, each student develops supernatural powers, which ensures chaos - and the destruction of the school building.

To prevent further problems, the student council decides to take the situation into their own hands by having the students elect a leader. Unfortunately, Cap, the elected representative is actually manipulated by Hoshi, another student who seems to know something more about the mysterious dimension's inner workings.

Some other students, including the main character, Nagara, have developed no powers. This, along with their varied understandings of the world they've found themselves in is bound to create further conflicts moving forward.
