However, within the meteor, an unknown element called mana was discovered. It allowed human technology to make rapid strides giving rise to a new species of super-powered humans, the Star Pulse Generation (Genestella). The Festas (Star Warrior Festivals) host battles between Genestella at a city of six academies called “Rikka,” also commonly known as “Asterisk.” Scholarship student Ayato Amagiri transferred into Seidōkan Academy in order to fulfill his own wish, swearing he too will fight in this city.

The first episode was pretty good. Not exactly groundbreaking content but so far it looks like it’ll be a fun watch actually.

For some reason a guy peeping in on a girl getting dressed and getting dragged into a fight for it somehow never gets old. Hard to believe this all began with a snot rag. :laughing:[/details]

No one seems to know their way around Rikka Academy, so it’s only appropriate that you join the ranks of directionally-challenged students and find your way around campus as well!

I’ve designed a maze that leads straight to the boy’s dorm!

Simply solve the maze.
Everyone that solves it will be put into a pool and 3 of you will be randomly chosen to win anime prize packs!
