In the 20th century, the Earth saw a barrage of meteor showers and other calamities that demolished most major cities. A new element discovered in the meteorites, mana, becomes instrumental in the development of new science, and “the age of the stars” begins. A new humankind emerges, with new abilities and powers.
In this new age, six rival academies must do battle in the Star Warrior Festivals, held annually in a floating academy city known as “Rikka” or “Asterisk.” Seidoukan Academy’s Amagiri Ayato, entrant in the Phoenix Tag-Team Star Warrior Festival, must join forces with Julius, Witch of the Resplendent Flames.
