The story of the series sets in a world where magic exists and with an alternate history was polished through modern technology. The star of this tale is the coolheaded Tatsuya Shiba. He is the bodyguard to his sister Miyuki Shiba who is also a candidate to succeed the leadership of the Yotsuba clan, one of the Ten Master Clans that govern Japan’s magicians.
The two have just entered into First High School, a school segregates its students based on their magical abilities and both have rather contrasting reputations. While Miyuki is a first-course student and is viewed as one of the best students, Tatsuya is regarded as the complete opposite having been placed in the second course. However, with his unique magical techniques and combat abilities, Tatsuya begins to prove more than he seems.
