Tsutomu Sato is the author of the hugely popular light novel series, The Irregular at Magic High School.
The year is 2095. Magic has been tamed as another form of technology, and the practice of magic is now a rigorous discipline. Brother and sister Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are just about to start their first year at the renowned First Magic High School of Japan. But the school's ironclad rules mean that the brilliant Miyuki enters the prestigious Course 1, while her older brother, Tatsuya, is relegated to Course 2--and that's just the beginning of their troubles!
Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are brother and sister, but they share a bond that transcends mere blood relation. Despite the fact that they're siblings who attend the same school, their lot in life couldn't be more different. Miyuki's a Bloom, one of the elite students of Magic High, while Tatsuya's a Weed, with low expectations and even lower levels of respect. But having skillfully diffused a tense situation, Tatsuya finds himself recruited by the school's disciplinary committee and soon discovers there's more to Magic High than he realized...
The Nine School Battle. Ever year in mid-July, students from magic high schools all over the country gather to participate in fierce competitions of magical skill. Miyuki Shiba is among the members of the team First High will send to the battle. The magical skill of the competitors will be a huge factor, but there's another one-the tuning of their CADs. Luckily, they've got someone with them who specializes in the field-Miyuki's older brother Tatsuya. But when the Nine School Battle is targeted by a sinister group, all the talent in the world may not be enough to secure victory...
After the conclusion of the Nine School Competition, summer arrives in force, bringing with it that most precious salvation for students - vacation! Shizuku invites Tatsuya, Miyuki, and their friends to her family's island villa for a bit of fun in the sun, but all of this is just a pretext to set the perfect, tropical stage for Honoka. Meanwhile, the ace of Third High, Masaki, entertains Kichijouji at home, unaware of his partner's struggle...or jealousy. Shun finds himself playing bodyguard to a beautiful foreigner, and Emi is cornered for a secret she can't reveal at any cost. The one who's got it toughest, though, is Mayumi who's desperate to find the next student council president before time runs out!
It hasn't taken long for Miyuki and her brother Tatsuya to start drawing attention at First High, though for very different reasons. When the student council takes an interest, the devoted Miyuki isn't about to sit idly by while her precious brother's talents go unrecognized! But can these two siblings change people's attitudes in a system specifically designed to separate the "Blooms" from the "Weeds"?
Having discovered that Kinoe Tsukasa was behind the attack on Tatsuya, Honoka and her friends follow him--but it's a trap! Miyuki's intuition tells her something's wrong, but will she be able to act in time? Being an honor student at Japan's most prestigious magical high school hasn't made Miyuki's life any easier!
Miyuki heads to the Nine School Battle, but there's trouble waiting for her--trouble in the form of Third High School's Airi Isshiki. The competition is fierce enough already--what does Airi want besides victory? Family politics and magical intrigue abound as the Nine School Battle arc begins!
With Shizuku's victory, First High is off to a great start in the Nine School Competition! But the students at Third High aren't going to take it lying down-Airi Isshiki is participating in Cloud Ball and ready to win! Who will win the Nine School Competition, where magic and athleticism meet?
The rivalry between First High and Third High escalates! As Miyuki and the rest of First High take on the Ice Pillars Break event at the Nine School Competition, Emi finds herself on a collision with a most intimidating opponent: Third High's Shiori Kanou!
