Plot Edit

Volume 4 Edit

An election for Chief Student Council President was announced. But rather than a traditional election, a tournament would be held. Each candidate would be in a four-person team with two people from each division. The candidates formed teams and arrived for a meeting. There were a few famous candidates. Hayashizaki Kazuki, the only male in the Magic Division, had built quite a reputation. Magic Division President Otonashi Kaguya, the most powerful Magika Stigma in the school who had already defeated nearly every strong student in her year. Magic Division Vice-President Hoshikaze Hikaru, who was strong and tremendously popular in the school. A candidate from the Swordsmanship Division was Takasugi Shūsui, he and his twin brother were radical political activists and weren’t strong or popular but had recruited powerful allies. Another team was led by Mibu Akira, who was notable for being forced to attend the school against her will and hated the place. A lottery was held at the meeting to set the bracket for the tournament.

She has the misfortune to draw Magic Division President Otonashi Kaguya as her opponent in the second match of the first round. Hiakari Koyuki used Moves on the Field to immobilize the other team, allowing them to bypass the swordsmen and attack the spell casters directly. Even when the swordsmen could move Kaguya used Suicide Black to great effect and immobilized them with Desire Tentacle until the others were knock out of the fight. It became a complete one-sided victory for Kaguya's team.

Hayashi Shizuka had placed 10 of the defeated magicians from the tournament under some sort of brainwashing. She then had them surround and attacks Kazuki and Hikaru while they were on a date. A squad of German Knights led by Beatrix Baumgard jumped in to help Kazuki. They recognize the brainwashing and Kazuki notices Katsura Karin and Hayashi hiding nearby. The Germans recognize the latter as one of the most dangerous operatives of China. She can not only brainwash people but grant them Diving Protection that allows them to fully recover whenever they are defeated. The professional Knights lack any methods to free those poor girls without killing them. But by kissing Hikaru Kazuki is able to do a full summoning of Baal. The girls are drained of magic power and pass out, free of control. Their plot foiled, Hayashi teleports herself and Karin away. The Knight Order collected the unconscious students and promised a full investigation.

The Knight Order discovered that many of the tournament’s participants had been brainwashed and had been left with no memory of their actions. It also seemed that this brainwashing was also why they had all entered the tournament in the first place. Their behavior had been strange enough to attract the attention of their friends. It seems these girls were among those who were assaulted by a mysterious figure over the past weeks and were brainwashed while under Magic Intoxication. They had also investigated the background of Karin and Hayashi, who hadn’t been arrested because Kazuki’s word alone wasn’t enough proof. The final match would be their last chance to assassinate Kazuki. They might end up going overboard and exposing their true colors.

Volume 5 Edit

Prior to the finals a series of exhibition matches were held allowing the eliminated teams to show their skills again. In the end Magic Division President Otonashi Kaguya and her Vice-President Hoshikaze Hikaru (who many had thought would end up being the strongest candidates) faced off for third place. Hikaru had never defeated her rival and that held true even in this team battle. The final match was held between Hayashizaki Kazuki and the team led by Mibu Akira, which had been infiltrated by foreign spies trying to assassinate him. Despite the danger Kazuki displayed incredible skill and won the tournament, making quite an impression. Hayashi escaped while Karin was captured and Kazuki managed to reform her and won her loyalty. Over the following week the candidates campaigned and on the day of the election all 16 sat in front of the student body waiting for the official tally. In the end Kazuki won by a wide margin and delivered a speech focusing on unity between the two schools.

A few days later 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. Western Japan declared itself an independent nation called Yamato which would follow the Japanese Mythology. This made it appear that they were an authentic Japanese independence movement. But the fact that many members of their leadership were suspected of being on China’s payroll, and that they were allied with Loki, made it clear that wasn’t true. Kazuki later called the students into a meeting. At the request of the Knight Order he would be leading a volunteer force of skilled students to reinforce the border. Thanks to an information leak, they were almost wiped out during an ambush on their way to the front lines. Feeling the need to make a surprise attack without tipping their hand to the enemy, Kazuki led only the students on a raid behind enemy lines. This assault became Japan’s first victory in the Civil War and went a long way to establishing his reputation as a leader. Hayashi was taken prisoner in that raid but later committed suicide in her cell. It is unknown if Natsuo was a part of this volunteer force on not.

Powers and Abilities Edit

She is a Magika Stigma, but she never even got the chance to use her skills in her match so the identity of her Diva is unknown.
