Amasaki Miō (
Miō is a beautiful young woman with blue eyes and large breasts. She has long blonde hair that is tied in twin-tails with large red bows. She is usually seen wearing a school uniform which has a black and white shirt with four buttons along with a white skirt and thigh-high socks. In her casual clothes, Miō wears a white blouse with a jacket on top and brown laced shoes, she also wears a Phenex feather-shaped necklace. Her Decorteo Brigieux (Magic Dress) is made of red attire over her breasts, parts of her stomach, legs, and arms.
At first, Miō is seen with a harsh and cold personality, but later when she opens up to Hayashizaki Kazuki, she acts like any other ordinary girl, blushing and acting bashful when she went on a date with him. Miō likes painting, writing, modern poetry and magical arts. Her dream is to become the strongest magician among the Magika Stigma, she also wants to become Student Council President in the future. At first Miō also calls Kazuki her "slave" often. Miō is a classic tsundere (A person that hides their true feelings); at the beginning of the story she insults Kazuki for being skilled with using swords and not magic. When he is accepted into the Witch's House, she treats him as an annoyance and calls him her personal slave, but in truth she is a little bitter that he doesn't remember her from when they were at the orphanage together and that he was adopted by a family skilled in sword arts.
Miō is also childish when she's with Kazuki and calls him Kazu-nii. After being resurrected, she started to be more honest about her feelings for Kazuki. In fact, she would openly boast about it, especially since it was because of her high positively level that she was the first girl who could do Telepathy with Kazuki and become one of his Favored Princess Magicians (alongside Koyuki, Kaguya and Hikaru).
Once she learns a little humility she becomes a very selfless person. She no longer gets jealous of the other girls in Kazuki’s life. There are also several occasions where she risks her life to protect Kazuki.
Miō also loves fashion and is knowledgeable when it comes to clothes. She's even capable of sewing clothes on her own, which she often uses to seduce Kazuki. Miō is also a skilled illustrator, as shown when she drew Kazuki an election poster.
She was originally an orphan who grew up in the Nanohana House, which housed many kids who lost their families when Tokyo was destroyed by an Illegal Magician. She was close to Kaya and Kazuki, who she adored as an older brother until he was adopted due to his proficiency in swordsmanship. Shortly after this she was adopted by the wealthy Amasaki family after she showed talent in magic. Like Kazuki, due to her small stature people were mistaken when estimating her age, it was only when her Enigma appeared that she realized she was a year older than she thought.
Miō was assigned to Class 2 taught by Liz Liza Westwood, who noted that her class held not only the only Rank-E magician (Hayashizaki Kazuki) but also the only 2 Rank-As in the first year. When she hears that, Miō stood up without being asked and boldly introduced herself and spoke of her ambitions for the future. The teacher told her off for doing so and made her sit down. Hiakari Koyuki was soon identified as the other Rank-A and Miō soon singled her out as a personal rival. When everyone was asked to introduce themselves Miō stood again, ignoring the teacher. While speaking she recognized Kazuki and waved to him. But it was clear he didn't recognize her (though she did look vaguely familiar he could not place her in his memory). Miō was very angry about this and immediately became the ringleader of the students who were openly hostile towards him (which was everybody in the class but Koyuki). They all mocked him for listing swordsmanship as one of his hobbies, something even the teacher criticized him for. It was announced that they would be doing a ceremony to try to form a bond with their Diva, which they were excited about.
Before the ceremony Kazuki asked Miō flat out where they had met before, which made her even angrier. The Magic Division Student Council President Otonashi Kaguya was in charge of the ceremony, using Telepathy to guide students to the Astrum where they would try to contact their Diva. It was rare for students to succeed on their first try and nobody in Class 1 had done it. Miō was the first person in their year to manage it and wanted to test out her new powers on the stage and had to be stopped by the teacher. Kazuki and Koyuki also managed to succeed on their first try. But Kazuki's Diva, Leme, was an unknown Diva with amnesia. He was immediately under suspicion of being an Illegal Magician. But since Leme wasn't hostile and had no apparent powers the staff reserved judgment and he moved in with the Student Council along with the two Rank-As so they could observe him. Miō was outraged about this, especially after he accidentally walked in on her changing and she refused to accept it. But the decision was already made, so out of spite she announced she would be treating him as her personal slave. The Vice-President Hoshikaze Hikaru arrived and was introduced. She was very uncomfortable about Kazuki, being afraid of men. Hikaru also tended to dress and act like a boy herself, which was quite confusing. They held a party to welcome Miō and Kazuki.
In the morning she was thrilled when he perfectly prepared a dish she remembered from their days at the orphanage. While most of the students were still trying to contract with their Diva Miō and Koyuki were busy trying to improve their Summoning Magic. Meanwhile Kazuki's seemingly useless Diva had given him no Summoning Magic so the teacher had given him very dull rudimentary magic training. He was once again the laughingstock of the classroom. Miō enjoyed rubbing it in his face that she could already use Level 2 Summoning Magic.
Miō continued to be the ringleader of the bullies making Kazuki miserable. But she still sat with him and Leme at lunch to enjoy his delicious food. It was a contradiction no one understood, least of all Kazuki. The final straw was when she insulted the Ancient Sword Style taught by his adopted family. It was Leme who first suggested that they settle things with a duel, his sword skill vs. her magic. Before the match no one thought he had a chance to win other than Leme and his sister Hayashizaki Kanae. But no such duel had ever been held officially at the school before. Nearly everyone had already accepted as fact that magic was overwhelmingly superior. But thanks to Kazuki's strict training in martial arts he easily dodges her magic and dominates the fight. Even though Miō refuses to concede, Koyuki the referee declares him the winner. It's at the end of that match that Miō finally reveals her identity and how they knew each other, shocking Kazuki. Miō later locks herself in her room in depression and refuses to eat anything. But Kazuki lures her out by playing on her enormous ego and their relationship starts to recover. She then becomes the first person whose magic he can use.
As they were cooking, they were interrupted by Kanae, who was extremely angry. She had just learned that her brother was not living alone (as was the original plan) but living with a bunch of girls. She had already spoken to the staff behind his back. They had agreed that he might be better suited to the Swordsmanship Division but Kazuki had no desire to transfer. Miō and Kanae began to jealously argue over him. She already had the staff on her side, having successfully demonstrated his clear skill with a sword while showing no ability to use any Summoning Magic. It had been arranged that Kazuki would take part in a tournament and would face a swordsman she had taken on as her own student, Kamiizumi Iori. While they were distracted, Miō’s special curry brined on the stove, upsetting her.
Kazuki demonstrated he could use Barrett to Miō and Kaguya. He had only told them Leme could copy magic. However his casting speed was quite poor. They share some memories of the past and Kazuki is finally forgiven and he begins calling her Miō. Kazuki works up the courage to ask her on a date. Kazuki learns the proper way to date a girl from Miō. As she took his arm and pressed against him he was embarrassed and turned on, she teased him. They went to a restaurant where they were offered a special dessert if they behaved like a couple, which they did. Later she asked him to wait while she ran off to get him a gift. While she was gone had had run into Kaya, another orphan they knew as kids who was acting odd. She gave him her gift. It was a pendant which perfectly matched hers. As they were walking home they come under attack by an Illegal Magician. He picks Miō up and starts to run, He knew he was of no use because he didn't have a sword and his magic power was exhausted. Miō's magic was already to Level 3 and she tried to fight, but didn’t do much damage. Kaguya turned up and began attacking with real power and he fled.
During the matches Koyuki was once again the referee. She has to step in when Hikaru gets carried away in the fight with Torazō Yamada. Miō is shocked when Kazuki defeats his opponent using Blazing Wings. Kaya then attacks the school as an Illegal Magician. She summons dragons to go wild. While the other students face the dragons and evacuate the spectators Kazuki and Miō team up to fight their childhood friend. She was very corrupted by her Diva at that point and had almost lost her mind. Kaguya used her sure-kill attack against her, even though Kazuki asked for mercy. The magic could not be undone and the situation was too dangerous.
On the very verge of death, Kaya surrendered herself completely and Loki was able to fully materialize. When everyone else lost hope only Kazuki kept fighting. Loki was stunned to have an opponent he could not beat with sword skill alone. He then used an attack that would surely have killed Kazuki with his depleted magic. Miō jumped in the way of the attack to protect him and collapsed, mortally wounded. Outraged, Kazuki finally managed to wound Loki, who retreated. Miō apologized to Kazuki and confessed her love before dying. Kazuki then took a great risk, kissing her and performing a full summoning of her Diva Phenex, saving her life. He fell into Magic Intoxication for 5 days as a result. Miō had no clear memory afterward of what happened. When Loki rose to power the others were frequently gone, But Miō stayed behind to take care of Kazuki, dressing as a maid when she did so. She gave him a meal when he awoke and suggested they should form a party to take on Quests together. The others returned and were very happy to see him awake. They jumped into Kazuki's bed to hug him, which didn't make Miō happy.
Volume 2 Edit
Miō and Kazuki had formed a party and were taking on a Quest to clear Demonic Beasts out of a Haunted Ground. They run into a group of slimes and Kazuki found his sword was not effective. They used fire to defeat the slimes but they learned that the red slimes were immune to fire. Kazuki was able to beat one with his sword. But Miō was attacked by a swamp creature with tentacles that melted away her Magic Dress and left the embarrassed girl weakened and almost delirious. Kazuki cut her free but they were in a tight spot until Koyuki suddenly appeared and rescued them. He was very grateful to her. She suggested they retreat as Miō was longer able to fight. Kazuki then fled the Haunted Ground carrying the nude body of Miō in his arms, which made her very uncomfortable. On the train ride home Kazuki tried to convince her that they were not strong enough as a two person group to take on the unexpected obstacles of Quests and should really add someone else. But she remained arrogant and selfish and flat refused.
Miō was confronted by Koyuki, who challenged her to a duel. Koyuki told her that she was about to demoted to Rank-B and evicted from the Witch's House. If she lost this duel she would be demoted. Miō accepted her challenge at once. Both girls used equally advanced magic in their fight. But Miō had always shown a remarkable amount of magic power when cornered, and had never been known to sink into Magic Intoxication. In the end the fight ended in a draw. Miō's evaluation rose slightly and she was no longer in immediate danger of losing her Rank-A status. Miō visited Kazuki in his room that night, intending to sleep together with him. But he was warned not to try anything and he managed to keep his self-control. They spoke of the past and they were both grateful they would remain in the same house.
Liza Liza-sensei introduced a new transfer student, saying vaguely shat she was a relative of hers who had only just returned to Japan. Charlotte Lieben Frau didn't look remotely native but her Japanese was excellent. She was only 14 but was already a Rank-A. Kazuki, Miō, and Koyuki were summoned to the Student Council room when Lotte and Liz Liza-sensei arrived it was revealed that the class had been lied to. She was not the teacher's relative but is in fact a refugee and the Princess of a small dukedom in Europe. Her country was currently the puppet state of Germany. She had fled her home to seek asylum in Japan and had used her remarkable Telepathy magic to learn Japanese in only 3 days.
Liz Liza-sensei asked Lotte show off her power and she summoned her Diva who looked like a small boy. This Diva had lost his strength and memory. In fact, he could no longer remember his own name, she called him "Prophet". Because she had made a contract with a Diva from outside the Norse religion she became an Illegal Magician which would have carried a death sentence under the strict faith doctrine of Germany. Germany had demanded her return but Japan had refused. Of course she would be an Illegal Magician in the eyes of Japan too. She had agreed to the contract, despite the risk, because she had suffered from an illness for her whole life. As she turned 14 she was on death's door when "Prophet" offered her a chance to live, the two of them would share her body and he was able to correct all the flaws in her that made her sick, allowing her to finally go outside and have a normal life. In return it would give him a chance to recover his own strength. It had been decided that Lotte too would be staying at the Witch's House for observation like Kazuki. Liz Liza-sensei also asked Kazuki and Miō to include Lotte in their party. As the experts on the Norse, the Germans would soon be arriving to aid in the search for Loki. That night Miō helped Kazuki prepare the food for the welcoming party for Lotte.
Lotte has a practice match was against Hikita Kōhaku of the Swordsmanship Division. Even though Kōhaku was extremely fast, the fact that Lotte shared her body with her Diva made her chanting time extraordinary. After this Liz Liza-sensei convinced Kazuki to admit her into their party and they left to re-challenge the Quest they had failed before. As they approached the gate they saw several Knights, one of them was from Germany. It had been announced that some of them would be in Japan for a month to assist in the hunt for Loki. With Kazuki with his sword acting as their vanguard and Lotte's firepower, they indeed found the Quest much easier. It was a hot day and the girls took a dip in a lake to cool off, where they were attacked by a tentacle monster. Miō, remembering her humiliation from last time, took great delight in defeating it.
They came across a shrine and found a katana which had clearly become a Sacred Treasure. Two members of the Knight Order immediately confiscated it. They pushed ahead and cleared the rest of the Haunted Ground. They were suddenly approached by that woman from Germany Beatrix Baumgard, who had deliberately waited until they were low on magic power and stamina. Kazuki warned the girls to treat her as an enemy. She carried a Sacred Treasure in the form of a shield which blocked most of their incoming magic. Kazuki rushed forward to fight her with a sword and she was impressed by his skill, concentrating mostly on him during the fight. The defensive abilities of her Diva were strong enough to make their magic ineffective. The same two Knights from before came across the fight and ran in to help them. Kazuki could tell they were way out their league against her and she could have easily killed them. He jumped in to help them, offering to cover for their escape. Suddenly a Demonic Beast appeared out of nowhere and provided a diversion. While Beatrix was distracted Kazuki and Miō used Blazing Wings to make their escape, taking Lotte with them.
There would definitely be another attempt on Lotte’s life and the Knight Order wouldn’t lift a finger to protect her. Kaya approached Kazuki and offered her help in facing off against Beatrix and her Diva Thor, who Loki was very familiar with. To Kazuki's relief Loki had not consumed Kaya entirely but was now sharing the body with her. He respected Kazuki's potential as no one else did at the time and hoped they might be friends. As the odds were against him he reluctantly accepted their help, as he could think of no logical reason to turn them down. Kazuki also received help from the two Knights who he had rescued during the Quest and they returned the Sacred Treasure they had confiscated from them. It was later revealed they had been hired by Miō's overprotective step-father to bodyguard her in secret after they failed their first Quest.
Then they went on another Quest to clear a Haunted Ground. Kaya had already cleared it out. Kaya greeted Miō with a hug, though the latter wasn’t sure it was really her. Beatrix soon arrived for the fight. The allies were able to cover for each other. Beatrix rapidly closed in on Miō, who indeed was vulnerable at close range. Kazuki jumped in the way to protect her and Kaya warned him it might have been a fatal error. He should have been trying to disrupt Beatrix's casting instead. Her powerful spell might have killed them both had Kaya not jumped in the way, leaving her in sorry shape. Kaya could no longer continue the fight and escaped. Lotte was willing to sacrifice herself for their sake, but he kissed her and did a full summoning of her Diva. Kazuki is able to overpower Beatrix and drive her into Magic Intoxication. Miō approached Kazuki and asked him what his true power is.
Kazuki had contacted the Knight Order and as they waited for them to collect Beatrix he told them everything. Miō was shocked to learn he had already kissed her to save her life, and he does so again since she doesn’t remember. Instead of the Knight Order, Kaguya and Torazō turned up to arrest them. The Knight Order had declared him a dangerous Illegal Magician and both he and Lotte were to be arrested. Lotte would be returned to Germany. They both now regarded Kazuki as a criminal and wouldn’t listen to anything he said. Kazuki wouldn’t let Lotte die without a fight. Even at full strength they would have a hard time fighting Kaguya and at that point they were still exhausted. Kaguya used Near Death Roulette to deprive Miō of her sight and sense of touch and she was understandably terrified. They were saved by Koyuki, who used Moves on the Field to give them the chance to flee. Koyuki used her strongest magic but it was quickly running out. Just as all hope seemed lost, Kōhaku turned up to assist them. Her Sacred Treasure provided cover for their escape. She told them she would give them shelter secretly inside the Swordsmanship Division. Koyuki used up too much power trying to cover for them and they wound up carrying her the rest of the way.
Volume 3 Edit
Kōhaku kept them confined for the next two days but apparently felt a little guilty about it. So she pretty much provided anything they asked for. Lotte talked about the date she went on with Kazuki to a maid cosplay café and Miō got jealous. They asked for maid costumes and animal ears and made a contest out of who is more talented at licking Kazuki’s face. Kazuki finds this embarrassing, especially when Koyuki finally wakes up and glares at him like a pervert. When she hears it was Miō’s idea she calls her a pervert, and she is mortified at the accusation. She is told they're “guests” of the Swordsmanship Division, who seem to be on the verge of a civil war against the Magic Division. Koyuki finds their goals foolish. They all thanked her for rescuing them. She was glad to know she at least had books to read. She is embarrassed to hear they have a maid outfit for her too and it’s the only change of clothes they have. Kazuki enters the bath first. While Miō was in the toilet, Lotte barged in on Kazuki in her Magic Dress and insisted on taking a bath with him. When Miō found out she barged in too and wound up getting fully naked. But Koyuki stopped her, wrapped a towel around her and handed Kazuki a towel so he could escape the embarrassing situation. Koyuki is worried something perverted might happen and makes Miō share a futon with Lotte alone, and the two girls have a tickle fight before bed.
Kōhaku came to visit. She told them they were allowed to wander freely on the Swordsmanship Division campus now. She told them that she had defeated Kanae and taken the position of Student Council President. The old Student Council was under arrest for assaulting them, and was confined in their rooms. Kazuki had been telling her that it was wrong to promote dissension between the schools when there are greater threats facing Japan. Kōhaku had always dismissed this argument before but now she was taking him seriously. He insisted the charges were false. There was some nefarious force at work behind the scenes in the Magic Division and it was a threat to all of them. She decided to introduce them to her best friend Tsukahara Kazuha. They find out she is an Illegal Magician. She summoned her Diva Futsunushi no Kami, who was quite friendly and didn’t seem to be a threat to her sanity. Leme recognizes him as a Diva of the Japanese Mythology. Leme told him that Kazuki was her chosen King of the 72 Pillars. But there was a conspiracy at work to ruin him, by people selfishly clinging to their own power. The 72 Pillars had granted Japan power without putting restrictions on their free will and were reserving judgment of their worthiness based on how they used that power. If things continued like this, they would judge Japan unworthy of their support and leave, which would be an utter disaster for the nation.
The swordsmen were preparing for an attack by the Magic Division because he had detected a sinister magic power in the facility built beneath the Magic Division. But as it turned out he was the only Diva on campus who was detecting this dark magic and none of them knew about this facility before. If they could investigate and prove an Illegal Magician was responsible they would earn his trust. But the security measures meant no one without a Stigma could enter, and Kazuha was the only such person they had. Realizing this could tie into the conspiracy they recognized, they agreed to take on the job. But Kazuha insisted Kazuki must prove his skills in a duel with her first. They reserve a gym for the duel with Koyuki acting as referee. Her magic is very impressive. But once he closes in she is totally outclassed in swordsmanship. The facility entrance was near the Witch’s House, but as morning classes were underway they didn’t expect to meet anybody. But they were stunned to run into Hikaru, who had overslept. At first she tries to capturing them as was her duty. But it’s evident she feels torn. He tells her there is a sinister plot at work and asks her as a favor to give them the chance to collect evidence of it. She agrees to forget she ever saw them and departs. Kazuha shatters the barrier concealing the entrance to the facility.
They might be labeled as criminals the second their Stigmas were scanned upon entry. Miō was given the chance to back out, as she hadn’t been charged with any crimes yet. But she decided to press on, because even if they wanted to report this to the authorities, there was no way to know who could be trusted. As they descend the place seemed to be a controlled Haunted Ground. They worried about Demonic Beasts and traps. Suddenly, a trap door begins to open at their feet. Kazuki, Miō and Lotte easily use their magic to leap to safety. At that moment Kazuki realizes that Koyuki’s magic isn’t working and she was in serious danger. He leaps back and clutches her body, using his own Defensive Magic to protect her from the fall that would otherwise have killed her. Miō was tempted to destroy the floor to reach them but Lotte is able to calm her down. Miō’s fire magic isn’t well suited to the poorly ventilated underground lab, but with excellent teamwork they continue to explore. They break into what seems to be a control room with several monitors and a heavily secured computer. Despite never having touched one before, Prometheus is able to bypass all the security measures and hack in. He is unable to locate the others or a map. But he finds the research files and copies them to a disc as evidence. He also turns on the security monitor allowing them to see and hear their friends.
They are confronted by the Headmaster Otonashi Tsukikurō, who confirms this was a government facility devoted to artificially boosting magic power. They sought an advantage over the other countries that rejected science. The Elven mutation was a side-effect of a classified project where newborns were subjected to experimental brain surgery to boost their magic power. In the end the mortality rate was high and the results weren’t spectacular so the project was abandoned. They also realized that Divas were obliged to obey their contractor, but could always choose not to grant powers to the next generation. They sought to bypass this through Stigma Transplant Operations, essentially enslaving the 72 Pillars to humanity. But the brain damage was too severe and the government abandoned the project and turned the facility into a school. The Headmaster had begun his own project, to create weapons whose souls had already been crushed and would use Summing Magic obediently and without free will. All this army needed was a King, and he insisted his daughter Kaguya was the only one “worthy” of that title. He explained how he had brainwashed her from birth to instill an obsession with being “the strongest”. When he gave her orders she turned off her emotions and became totally obedient t his will. The final thing he needed was Kazuki’s King’s Authority to make his dream a reality. They're a horrified and angered after this speech. The man refused to see his own insanity and couldn’t understand why they opposed him.
At this point Kazuki realized something the man himself had not. The Headmaster had become an Illegal Magician without even realizing it. At first he denied it, but his mind and emotions had clearly been eroded. There was also the simple fact that the door wouldn’t permit entry to anyone without a Stigma. Realizing he had ceased to care about himself long ago, he finally admitted the truth and surrendered what little free will he had to the Diva. The Diva revealed his identity as the Faceless God Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos of the Cthulhu Mythos. He admitted the Headmaster had been a useful pawn because he refused to see his own insanity until that last moment. He had also unwittingly molded his own daughter into an ideal new vessel for him. The last thing he needed was Kazuki’s King’s Authority and the 72 Pillars would become his slaves and he would use them to destroy the other Mythologies. He showed them the 12 living weapons, the Quad-Core Magicians that had been produced. He would test their power by destroying the rebellious Swordsmanship Division. As well as eliminating all the witnesses who discovered this place.
Miō and Lotte were fighting a Quad-Core Magician and were struggling to defend four types of magic. As Kazuki and Koyuki approach from behind, they are able to catch the enemy in a pincer attack. Kazuki acted as vanguard for the two, who were battered and exhausted. The opponent was defenseless at close-range, but he couldn’t disrupt her casting. Miō was given the time to chant high-level magic and defeated the opponent by casting Israel Judgment. They had a moment of silence for the girl who lost her life then headed for the surface.
When Kazuki and his group reach the surface the attack was already underway. They are outraged that the Magic Division is taking shelter and not helping at all, but Kazuki figures they were ordered to do so by the Headmaster. Kazuki’s party arrives on the battlefield to assist Kōhaku and Kanae. At Kazuki’s order they quickly organize themselves for battle. Vice-President Hikaru jumped in to help. Kazuha also assists them. Given the crisis, she no longer cared if she was exposed as an Illegal Magician. He told them these things had their minds crushed already and there was no point in showing mercy. By making use of excellent teamwork they are soon able to defeat the 10 Quad Core Magicians. Just as Kazuki’s group was done with the battle the German Knights arrived to attack them. Kazuki figured the Headmaster planned to kill all the witnesses and find a way to blame the attack on him. Beatrix introduced her friends Damian and Eleonora Abendroth. Kaguya would be supporting them from the rear but was clearly conflicted. Nyarlathotep (disguised as the Headmaster) casts Sanity Down to suppress her emotions, though nobody but Kazuki seemed to notice this. Kazuki asks his friends to take on the German Knights and offers them strategic advice. He also lends his Sacred Treasure to Kanae, who will be facing Beatrix. He charges after Kaguya in order to free her from control and finds a way to elude Beatrix who tries to intercept him.
Beatrix tried to chase after Kazuki but was intercepted by Kanae, who was disturbed by her behavior. Once she found out she was Kazuki’s sister she decided the fight might be interesting. By working together, Kōhaku and Kanae gradually chip away at her magic power. Beatrix suddenly decided to charge straight at Miō, having noticed she was weak at close-range during their last fight. But Miō had predicted she would do that and when Beatrix charged straight at her the trap was sprung. Miō completely blew her away with Israel Judgment. Beatrix was unable to continue the fight and Miō finally felt she was past her recent slump. Once the others saw Kazuki hugging Kaguya after freeing her from mind control, the Germans realized they couldn’t rely on her support anymore. Besides that they were growing suspicious of the Headmaster’s motives. They had gained new respect for their opponents and in this situation elected to retreat.
Several of them thought the battle was over at that point. But Kazuki confronted Nyarlathotep in his disguise as the Headmaster. He called out all the obvious flaws with his Quad-Core Magicians, which were easily defeated by them. He was no longer hiding the fact he was an Illegal Magician. Kaguya was stunned to learn the truth. So was Board Chairman Amasaki who popped up nearby. He realized the Headmaster must have been the one who created those strange magicians and no doubt sacrificed innocent lives to do it. Nyarlathotep then stabbed him though the chest, having decided to kill all the witnesses. Miō ran over to help her step-father and she is gradually able to heal him with Anti-Aging. Nyarlathotep reveals his true form, but seems weak in terms of magic power. He uses Psycho Noise to disrupt the chanting of the mages, including Miō’s healing magic. But Kaguya finds the resolve to fight of her own volition for the first time. Asmodeus congratulates her by giving her a special powerful spell she uses to destroy the enemy in a single hit. Though the monster returns briefly by seizing Koyuki’s body, Kazuki drives him out and is able to destroy him entirely.
By this time Miō had managed to heal her step-father and urged him to let go of his vendetta against the man she had feelings for. As he looked at Kazuki he realized how misguided he had been. He realized his own selfish desires had blinded him to seeing the remarkable qualities of this young King. The evidence Prometheus had collected was turned in and proved the Headmaster had based the weapons on years of secret immoral government research related to magic. Miō's step-father became the new Headmaster and fully supported Kazuki now. The scandal was used to leverage the government to force corrupt officials out and to advance key reforms. Those changes included fair treatment of Illegal Magicians who weren’t hostile and the legalization of Sacred Treasures. It was also declared the two schools would be led under one banner now and be treated as equal.
Volume 4 Edit
Miō keeps asking him questions about his preferences about her clothes and hairstyle. Miō drags Kazuki away from a meal so they can talk in private. She more or less asks to go on another date. Miō arrives at the agreed meeting place and is shocked to see him chatting with Beatrix. Before leaving Beatrix warned him there were countries more extreme that Germany out there and they could very easily target his life. She noted she had become obsessed with him and confesses before she leaves. They had lunch and went to the local sports center. They enjoyed a good natured competition. It had gotten dark as they made their way back. She insists she doesn’t mind the Harem as long as he reassures her of his true feelings. As they are kissing, he senses killing intent. The assassin was garbed in black. She hits him with a devastating palm strike to the chest which stopped his heart and then she left. Once she was gone Miō uses Anti-Aging to heal and revive him. He admitted he had let the girl hit him, so he could analyze her technique and find out which foreign nation she was working for. He had relied on her to heal him. He admitted it had been more dangerous than he thought but identifies her as a user of Chinese Kenpo. Both Miō and Leme were angry with him for risking his life like that and he agreed to reflect on it.
In class, the format for the Chief Student Council President election was laid out. Each candidate would form a four-person team with two people from each division. They would compete in a tournament meant to display both their fighting skills and their leadership qualities. After that an election would be held with all students having an equal vote. During lunch the residents were called back to the house along with their friends from the Sword Division, all the people seen as likely candidates. Though most of them had been nominated only three of them were actually running. Kōhaku was already planning to resign as President and was unable to convince Kanae to take the job again. Though Miō hadn’t been nominated many of them had expected her to run. But she realized she couldn’t match Kazuki or Kaguya and would rather be his partner and protect him. She expected to have to have to fight with the other girls over it but it didn’t happen. Kōhaku joined the team as well. Kazuha reluctantly became their last teammate because she didn’t have any other close friends in the group. It seemed like they had a powerful lineup, but Kazuki was worried special rules would be imposed during the tournament. Kaguya’s team had Koyuki, Kanae and Torazō and would probably be the strongest team. The third team was Hikaru’s, her teammates were Lotte and Iori. They were a swordsman short and she later added Kimura Tomomi to her team.
They gathered for the meeting to officially join the tournament. The next group to appear was a pair of twin girls Ryūtaki Miyabi and Ryūtaki Shinobu. They were quite powerful but anti-social and only worked with each other. The twins were identical except Miyabi was an Elf. She thanked Kazuki for disposing of the former Headmaster, who apparently had been trying to capture her as a test subject. She made her romantic interest in Kazuki obvious. They had been recruited by twin boys from the Sword Division Takasugi Shūsui and Takasugi Harunari. They were radicals who advocated that Magika Stigma should be deprived of civil rights and locked away and brainwashed to prevent them from endangering the public. Another team was led by the delinquent Mibu Akira paired with her best friend Asamiya Anna. These girls were forced to attend the Academy against their will because they received an Enigma. In protest they refused to participate in things like Quests or duels so it was impossible to gauge their strength. One girl on Mibu’s team was staring at Kazuki in shock and he was pretty sure he knew who she was by her build and movements.
As Kazuki feared, as Liz Liza-sensei laid out the rules certain things were banned. Magicians were prohibited from carrying weapons, swordsmen could only use standard magic and Sacred Treasures were banned. In other words everyone on Kazuki’s team but Miō would be fighting with a handicap. A lottery was held for setting the bracket. At the house she winds up being a distraction to Kazuki who was playing a video game and he almost loses a wager to Hikaru as a result
The teams began to train but with 16 of them, and with them wanting to maintain secrecy, it was hard to find space. Kazuki’s team did their training on the grounds of the Witch’s Mansion. Kazuki wanted to come up with a formation that was original and would impress the voters. They also had to conserve their energy. Given the tight schedule they always ran the risk of falling into Magic Intoxication before the finals, Instead of sacrificing the front line to buy time for high-level magic, they would cast support magic on the swordsmen who would do the attacking. This would require practice. Kazuki and Kōhaku would especially need it. He also began discussing strategy against Kaguya’s team, who they would face in the second round.
Kazuki realized Kazuha’s problem was a lack of confidence. Kazuki’s team fought in the first match against the team led by Miyamoto Reina. His tactics concentrated on covering for each other and relying on teamwork. This went exactly as planned as Miō and Kōhaku disrupted Nagasaka Yuka’s high-level magic. With encouragement, Kazuha finds her confidence and defeats her opponent without help, stunning the audience. In the second match Kaguya’s team dominates the other side, employing the exact strategy Kazuki predicted. In the third match the twin brothers covered the twin sisters until Lunatic Labyrinth drew them all into a mental world where the other side lost quickly. Kazuki had prepared enough lunch for their whole group to eat together. Kōhaku hadn’t predicted that and had also prepared a feast so there was plenty of food. Even Miyabi snuck into their group and snuck some food. Before being dragged off by her sister she encouraged Kazuki to beat Kaguya and face them in the semi-finals. In the fifth match Hikaru’s team used excellent teamwork and skill to defeat the opponents easily. In the sixth match, Mibu’s team stunned everyone when their swordsmen Katsura Karin and Hayashi Shizuka didn’t even participate. The spell casters were trained enough in Chinese Kenpo to counter the enemy swordsmen and were able to dodge incoming magic. It became a decisive victory for them.
The second round began with Kazuki’s match against Kaguya. In a direct confrontation they could never win, but he had seen through the weaknesses of their opponents. Again using teamwork and the tactics Kazuki devised they are able whittle down the other side and they finally gang up on Kaguya and win. Kaguya was shocked and disappointed that she had been seen through so easily and started calling him Kazuki. The twin sisters won the second match exactly as they had before. Hikaru faced Mibu’s team next. The swordsmen on that team had hidden their true power before. While Hikaru and Lotte weren’t disadvantaged in magic, their opponents kept mysteriously getting back up every time they were beaten. It was clear they were cheating somehow but the Board Chairman refused to declare the match forfeit without proof.
Kazuki’s group suspected they were getting Divine Protection from the Divas secretly used by the swordsmen. Hikaru received a savage beating from Hayashi who was able to pierce Defensive Magic and injure her gravely while laughing about it. Kazuki called for the match to end, while everyone else was slow to react. Realizing Hayashi intended to murder Hikaru, Mibu just barely managed to end the fight with her magic first. Hikaru tried to downplay her injures after the match, but she had been seriously injured. The residents and Liz Liza-sensei ignored the final match to check on her but it seemed she would recover with rest. The others left her room but she asked Kazuki to stay and chat.
While she was out shopping, she ran into Kazuki and Hikaru while they were on a date. Hikaru, as per usual was dressed like a guy. She dragged him away to ask what was going on. He told her there was something off about his relationship with Hikaru, due to the fact she refused to see herself as a girl and that was why he still couldn’t use her magic. She agreed to help with dressing her. Miō went back to Hikaru and quickly decided to get her a totally different outfit and did her hair with surprising results. No one was more surprised at how well it worked than Hikaru herself. Miō took the other clothes home with her.
The day of the semi-finals arrived. Confronting the twin brothers with dangerous ideals in the first match, Miyabi acknowledged Kazuki’s power, but said this would be a test of his heart instead. They were unable to prevent the casting of Lunatic Labyrinth and they were all drawn into a mental world. Kazuki’s group started off separated so they could be picked off. Miō and Kōhaku managed to find each other quickly but were rather battered by the time they found the others. Miyabi chanted high-level magic and suddenly Kazuki’s companions turned on him. Kazuki dodged incoming magic and deflected the attacks of the brothers. He realized the magic used might amplify negative feelings. Kazuki expresses his true feeling to each of his companions in turn, snapping them out of it. Kazuki’s group then ran as the sisters flew above them on Marchosias dropping powerful magic down on them. Miyabi cast a spell that suddenly conjured a mirror in front of him that made him pass out.
Lunatic Labyrinth ended, the brothers were out already and the sisters were dropping Burning Icicle on the party from the sky. Miō was trying to defend them but her magic wasn’t very effective. Kazuki woke up and cast Storm Fort to remove the threat. Miyabi was impressed by how quickly he had woken up. She told him the sword that appeared in his hand was his reward for conquering his trauma. The sisters cast their Union Magic but Kazuki cleaved the incoming attack in two with this sword. The audience cheered and Miyabi was stunned and impressed. She landed and immediately surrendered over her sister’s objections; they had no way to win any longer.
Her sister and the twin brothers question why she surrendered like that but she didn’t give any clear answers. But Kazuki had seen through her true motives. She admitted she was testing him and his worthiness as a leader. Miyabi suddenly kissed Kazuki on the cheek, shocking everybody, most of all her sister. Miyabi clearly confessed her love over her sister’s objections. It was revealed that her sister refused to recognize her as an Elf. Her mind wouldn’t accept reality and she wouldn’t spend time with anyone but Miyabi. But this fact also saved Miyabi from the loneliness other Elves experienced. She suggested that Kazuki should conquer them both. Leme accused Gremory of leaking information on his power. This had been another test of his worthiness he had passed, and Leme was also impressed with his performance. But the real battle was against the team he would face in the finals. As expected the most dangerous team won the second match and progressed to the finals. When Kazuki got home all the residents of the house were wearing maid outfits, having prepared a party to celebrate him getting into the finals. They insisted on doing all the housework until the finals. Hikaru and Lotte encouraged him to take revenge for them in the final match as they sat down to eat.
Volume 5 Edit
Before the finals a series of exhibition matches were held. This allowed the eliminated teams to display their talents again. It wound up being Kaguya and Hikaru in a battle for third place. The only other people who had been impressive were the twin sisters. Miyabi and her sister sat with Kazuki’s group. Kazuki was asked who he was rooting for. He wisely sidestepped the issue by cheering for his sister. Koyuki impressed everyone by defending Hikaru’s long-range magic. In the end it became a close-range brawl for everyone. While Hikaru and Lotte had an advantage in that scenario, Kanae was particularly critical in stopping Lotte and in the end only the leaders were left. Those two had fought many times and as always it ended with Hikaru’s loss. Hikaru and Lotte demanded special attention from Kazuki at lunch. Kaguya’s team joined them and Kazuki noted he was especially impressed by Kanae. They all had fun playing around together. Kazuki wasn’t allowed to make the lunch today and the girls were feeding him the dishes they prepared. When he gave Koyuki special attention and affection the other girls demanded it too.
Before the final match Kazuki spoke to them all about the plot behind the scenes. How the new Board Chairman had arranged this tournament. He also seemed to be in cahoots with that delinquent team to seize control of the Academy by installing a puppet. The group backing him advocated for the civil rights of Magika Stigma to be revoked. He also told them of the assassination attempts on him and that the swordsmen on the opposing team were contracted with Divas from China. Over the past few weeks Hayashi had brainwashed a number of students. Some of the candidates only signed up due to this brainwashing. He also told them how China was pulling the strings behind this whole plot to weaken Japan. The group was shocked by this. Kazuki also confirmed that it was Divine Protection by Hayashi’s Diva that allowed Mibu and company to continually regenerate magic. The Germans had told him that Hayashi was a well known operative and that those with her blessing could regenerate 70 times. They couldn’t win unless they could beat Hayashi first or cut off that blessing. Kazuha had a Summoning Magic that could do it, but it would violate the rules to use it. Kazuki planned to take on the dangerous two by himself. If he succeeded in backing them into a corner they might abandon pretense and use Summoning Magic in a last ditch attempt to assassinate the King. If that happened he encouraged Kazuha to use her magic. It was possible that Hayashi had brainwashed her entire team and if so Kazuha should be able to free them.
Liz Liza-sensei acted as referee. As was the plan Kazuki took grave risks to take on Hayashi and Karin alone. His team displayed excellent teamwork holding the magic users back. He was able to utilize numerous types of magic at once, shocking the audience and frightening Hayashi. She forced Karin to act as her meat shield, who suffered terrible pain as a result. Kazuki managed to attack Hayashi directly and forced them to use their Summoning Magic. Despite the danger the Board Chairman still refused to stop the match, having a logical argument prepared. Kazuha generated a weapon she was able to use to cut off the Divine Protection from the magic users. Though Kōhaku was forced to withdraw due to the damage she took while protecting her. But due to an attack by Mibu, who had never been brainwashed, her weapon was lost before Kazuki could use it to free Karin. Hayashi forced her sister to use a dangerous wide-area attack despite the risk to innocent people. Miō managed to rescue the enemy magicians and Kazuki did the same for Kazuha. In that desperate situation he had only one choice. He apologized to Kazuha before kissing her. Doing a full summoning of her Diva allowed him to disperse all the dangerous magic, free Karin from control and force Hayashi to escape while vowing revenge.
Karin was taken to the infirmary where Kazuki’s group gathered. The Headmaster said a seal would be placed on her Stigma to limit her magic. He planned to send her to prison for life without trial. But both Kazuki and Karin’s teammates objected. They believed she was forced to take those actions due to the influence of her cruel sister, who she desperately wanted the approval of. The Headmaster regarded those two delinquents as criminals too. But they just wanted to get stronger and help the pitiful Karin. They had no idea China was behind it all. They were only called delinquents because they resented having to abandon their goals in life to enroll in this Academy. Those girls believed strongly that if a kindly person reached out to Karin she could be redeemed. Several others, including the Headmaster's step-daughter Miō, also agreed they should give her a chance before condemning her. In the end Kazuki insisted he would take responsibility and monitor Karin. As her target this was the only way to verify she had reformed. He was confident she was no threat to him and he could put himself in a state of heightened awareness so he couldn’t fall victim in his sleep. Relenting to the King, the Headmaster told him to stay by her side full time and would give them a week before sending her to prison. Kazuki later borrows some clothes for Karin to use.
Kazuki had spent the week in isolation with the captured spy Karin. In the end his kindness won her over and she became his ally. He returned to class just in time for the formal vote. Those radical twin brothers had put on an elaborate election campaign in his absence. Kazuki had left his own campaign to his teammates Miō and Kōhaku. The students were called to a meeting where the results would be announced. The sixteen candidates were up on stage with the Headmaster and Board Chairman waiting for the official tally. Kazuki worried about funny business with the vote count. But in the end Kazuki was elected by a wide margin and gave a speech focusing on unity between the two divisions.
Karin had now become a hardcore NEET. Kazuki insisted she must start attending school again, this time in the Magic Division where he could monitor her. Karin was given her own room. Kazuki paid a visit to the Student Council room. His friends all joined them. It was agreed that Kazuki would be based here, as the Sword Division buildings were still being rebuilt. An election had been held and Kanae became President again with Kōhaku as Vice-President. He was confident with Kaguya and Kanae supporting him. They made suggestions on ways to increase interaction between the schools, and he was most interested in the creation of a school newspaper.
Yumeno Shiori won the post of newspaper chairman. Miō noted she was the top of the Rank-B students and frankly at Rank-A level. They spent the day beginning to set up the newspaper office in the Witch’s House. Kazuki was seeking advice on how best to romance women. Miō told Kazuki she wanted to hear his heartfelt words of praise for her. She enjoyed his words so much she tried on every outfit she had to hear his praise, including her birthday suit. A few days later they were ready to publish the first newspaper issue. Shiori had overworked herself and was exhausted. Kazuki focused on introducing himself and the other Student Council members. He also outlined his policy plans and welcomed suggestions and comments. He also included information on how each school operated. When he contacted the Headmaster for final approval he was told that the Board Chairman and his entire family had vanished without a trace. That night news reports stated there had been a massive coordinated strike on all Knight Order posts in western Japan by a mysterious force including mysterious Illegal Magicians. All of western Japan had now been conquered by this unknown army and was now under a complete communications blackout.
The former Board Chairman appeared on TV announcing that western Japan was declaring independence and calling itself Yamato. All the politicians with secret ties to China appeared to be involved in this plot and had made an alliance with Loki. They were claiming legitimacy under the banner of the Japanese Mythology rather than the 72 Pillars, which people weren’t necessarily opposed to. By doing so they could maintain the facade that Yamato wasn’t just a puppet state of China. The Japanese Divas appeared to have fallen into a Wild God state after being ignored for so long. Their contractors had apparently all joined this movement too. Kazuha had avoided this fate by building her Diva a shrine and caring for him. A border wall was being constructed. The Headmaster and Kazuki were annoyed that both Futsunushi no Kami and Leme had known something was going on with the Japanese Divas but hadn’t told anybody.
They met with two third years Kodzuki Kanon and Yagumo Akane who were already serving in the Knight Order. They were the Student Council members from last year. They knew all the rumors about Kazuki and were very interested. They greeted Kaguya, Hikaru and Koyuki. They were then introduced to Miō, Kanae, Kōhaku and Kazuha. They informed them of the situation and expected Yamato to invade further but it was hard to fully oppose them because Loki’s followers were causing trouble in the east and dividing their resources. When their leader was captured, Kanon was effectively pressed into the role, despite being a student.
The students were called into a meeting. To respond to an urgent request for reinforcement at the border, Kazuki would be leading an elite force of students from both schools to reinforce them. Kazuki told them this was entirely voluntary but urged those with the courage to fight to volunteer. They wound up with a force of about 150 people. The school had become the headquarters for the war effort. 10 more third years who escaped enemy territory gathered there. They were suddenly joined by the German Knights Beatrix, Damian and Eleonora too. They offered to cooperate as allies. Kazuki vouched for their strength. The Germans and the Student Council members were put in charge of squads under Kazuki’s command. They would meet up with the 200 Knights who escaped the west. But Kazuki insisted the seniors must rest first and prepared a meal.
They passed quite a few people on the road who seemed to be refugees. The buses were suddenly fired on and destroyed. The students were slow to react due to shock but finally came to their senses. It was a perfectly executed ambush. Kazuki too was slow to react when he realized that Hayashi had brainwashed those ten third years and ordered them to target their leaders, Kanon and himself. He only survived because Beatrix shielded him and fell deep into Magic Intoxication. Kazuha freed those girls and the enemy fled as the Knight Order arrived. Both sides took prisoners with them.
Kazuki and his close friends raided their classmates’ rooms and confiscated their cell phones. Given what happened that day, Kazuki suspected an information leak. There might even be a spy among the students. He told them they were conducting a surprise raid on the enemy. They were able to slip away because his friend was on guard duty and owed him a favor. Once they had escaped he explained his plan in more detail. He divided the students into squads based on their specialty. His friends’ unique skills allowed them to conceal their approach and take out the guards. They surrounded the enemy garrison and were able to destroy the building despite being detected and fired upon. With perfect coordination between the squadrons they attacked them from different angles and they fell into confusion. Kazuki made sure to capture Hayashi alive, though she later committed suicide in her cell. Kaya appeared on the back of a dragon and ordered the troops to retreat. She offered her praise to Kazuki for this bold action. Behind her, Maya was clearly terrified of heights. They returned to camp with captured prisoners and freed allies.
Upon questioning a Japanese Diva who had calmed down they were told all the shrines in western Japan had been destroyed. Those people said they were working for the government, to show their devotion to the 72 Pillars. But the 72 Pillars didn’t demand such things and it was easy to guess the deception. The Yamato guys had fooled them with that simple trick, to drive them into a Wild God state. They used that to turn them against Japan and the 72 Pillars and get them to support a new state based on Japanese Mythology. If they could calm them out of their Wild God state and explain the truth Yamato would fall apart.
Volume 6 Edit
Their group was headed to the beach in cars driven by Akane, Kanon and Lotte. From there Kazuki and Kazuha would slip away on a boat to infiltrate Ise Grand Shrine by sea. Some girls were unhappy that only the two of them were going, but since this was an infiltration mission, having a small group was essential. The plan was to calm the rage of the Chief God there, which was the fastest way to calm all the Japanese Divas down. After all, the Diva they had already calmed out of her Wild God state had been easy to convince of the truth. If they succeeded Yamato’s base of support and facade of legitimacy would crumble. In order to hide their purpose from the spy, it was said the group was allowed to take a brief vacation. They were given two beacons they were expected to light up after the mission to indicate success or failure.
The Knight Order had arranged to rent a beachfront property, complete with changing rooms. Kazuki, as the only guy present, was the fastest to change. As the girls gradually arrived he planned to offer them honest praise on their swimsuits. Kaguya and Miō wore simple bikinis and he enjoyed hugging them. Kazuki and Lotte went out on the boat, which was small due to the need to avoid detection. It was equipped with GPS and a silent motor but was designed to appear nondescript to avoid drawing attention. The Ryūtaki sisters wandered off alone. After he got back Kazuha took her turn learning to operate the boat. Kazuki and Kazuha changed into casual clothes that wouldn’t look out of place in Yamato and they boarded the rather cramped boat. They weren’t carrying swords, to seem less suspicious. Their friends waved goodbye as they set sail.
Miō interrupted a meeting between Akane and Regimental Commander Yamagata Koyata. She told them Kazuki was able to contact her through their connection. He said the mission was a success and to launch the attack at once. They found this a little hard to accept but once they thought about him being a King this kind of ability wasn’t that hard to accept. Akane and Kanon arrived at the front lines for what should have been a surprise assault. But thanks to the spy Yamato knew their movements and were amassing their forces to protect the targeted garrison. Though this strike was no longer a surprise Kazuki said that large numbers of the Yamato magic users would have already left the battlefield. He also believed that the professional training and experience of the Knight Order would give them an edge. Akane selected the tactic for the battle. The students from the Knight Academy were among the rear guard. The other side didn’t seem to be lacking in numbers but Akane had faith in Kazuki. Indeed when they called Yamato’s bluff most of the rear guard turned out to be fakes without the ability to use Summoning Magic.
Lotte flew above the battle using Deep Striker. While dodging incoming magic she kept in constant contact with Akane letting her know about the situation. Thus they could redeploy their forces quickly when needed. The discipline and training of their swordsmen was definitely superior to their opponents. They were able to break through the enemy lines. When the front line got into trouble students led by Hikaru jumped in to help. Lotte was playing a vital role here, but it took persuasion by Kazuki and Akane before the Knight Order would allow her to help, due to her being an Illegal Magician. Japan’s success in this battle so far could be said to be a combination of Kazuki’s creative style and Akane’s knowledge of traditional tactics.
Thanks largely to Akane’s leadership, it was looking like a great victory for Japan. She was suddenly contacted by Lotte who detected powerful enemy magicians approaching at high speed. The Yamato government had made an alliance with China and a group of their magicians had turned up at the last minute to help Yamato. As the enemy charged on horseback their efforts to take them out with long-range attacks were ineffective. Akane tried to organize the shocked troops, stunned China was brazenly getting involved here. The enemy pushed through their lines easily, their tactics were meaningless. They approached the headquarters where Kanon and Akane were. They decided to end the battle by killing the leaders, Akane was immobile from shock.
Kazuki arrived on the battlefield carrying Kazuha and Kamimura Itsuki. They would be unable to reach their friends in time so at Kazuha’s suggestion they were thrown. They weren’t able to hurt the enemies but succeeded in distracting them. Kazuki also launched a high-speed attack and failed to affect anything. Kanon used a spell that removed the Sacred Treasures held by the enemies. The allowed them to fight back to some degree. But the Japanese Knights were still in disarray and helpless. It seemed things would get worse when Lotte detected more strange magicians approaching. But these figures on horseback had come to help Japan. Their leader used a Sacred Treasure that disrupted all the magic in the area. The enemies were left vulnerable by this and fled along with the Yamato troops. The Knights were ordered not to pursue. The strangers offered to join their ranks. It turned out they belonged to an alliance of Asian countries opposed to the aggressive expansion of China.
Kazuki attended a meeting that also served as a mission debriefing. The leaders of Ryōzanpaku were hoping to form an alliance with a Magically Advanced Country. Japan had always remained neutral in these conflicts. Soon the international community would step in and force a cease fire. They would then investigate and issue a judgment of which government was the legitimate ruling body of Japan. If there was a divided opinion on this, things might not be settled until the battle between Kazuki and Ikōsai Aisu ends and Japan had am official King. They were interrupted by the German Knights, including the newly recovered Beatrix. They announced they would be suspending their agreement with the government of Japan until this matter was settled.
Powers and Abilities Edit
Miō is a contractor of Phenex. The powers of Phenex are based on fire. Miō uses Phenex's power from long-range distances. However, when Kazuki uses it he makes it versatile from any type of range whenever he's in a fight.

Harem King Powers: Edit
Any Harem member with a Positivity Level of 150 or better gains the ability to communicate Telepathically with the Harem King.
Favored Princess Magician: Edit
Once Kazuki was recognized as the King of Japan by the 72 Pillars in Volume 9, Chapter 3 those Magika Stigma closest to him were given a special position. Those with a Positivity Level of 150 or better were given the title of Favored Princess Magician. This title made those girls the most powerful contracted magician of their Diva. They can only use this power for a short while but it greatly shortens the casting time of their Summoning Magic. It also means the 10 Inherent Powers of the Diva become more powerful. The down side is that when using this power no other contractor of that Diva will be able to access her Summoning Magic, which could be a serious problem if they happen to be in battle.
Enhanced Inherent Powers: Edit
Level 1: Volcanic Barrett: Summons a bullet of lava that shoots from the ground.
Level 3: Self Burning ・ Empress: Wraps the target in armor of flame like being embraced in the wings of the undying bird.
