And when the boys get caught peeping, they're sent to the school's prison, which is run by the brutally seductive warden, who also happens to be the VP of the Underground Student Council. After the boys are forced endure manual labor, whips, and chains, they'll be left wishing they were locked up with actual criminals! - See more at: http://www.funimation.com/blog/2015/08/11/english-cast-announcement-sneak-peek-prison-school/#sthash.9yax9hR1.dpuf
