Profession: Spy
Mission: Female High School Student

This is a spy action story starring girls battling it out in London, which has been split into East and West sides!

At the end of the 19th century, London, the capital of the Kingdom of Albion has been split into East and West sides by a giant wall. Five girls attend Queen's Mayfaire, a traditional and prestigious school. Under the guise of regular high school girls, they act as spies under cover. Disguise, reconnaissance, infiltration, car chases... Each girl uses their own set of special skills to dart around the world of shadow.

"What are we?"
"We're spies. We live to lie."



Voice: Ayaka Imamura

A genius spy with masterful skills. Because she has an unfriendly personality and doesn't speak much, she confuses those around her because she often makes outrageous lies.


Voice: Akira Sekine

The princess of the kingdom of Albion. She's a little spacey, but has a very strong heart and is popular amongst her people.


Voice: You Taichi

Ange's partner who is basically the leader of the group. She's very skilled at things like driving cars, and her shooting abilities are top-notch. She's very good at seducing her targets, but is in fact very pure and innocent.


Voice: Akari Kageyama

A noble girl who is always by Princess's side. Because she was saved by her when she was just a child, Beatrice respects and loves Princess with all her heart.


Voice: Nozomi Furuki

A Japanese girl who came to the academy as an international student. Despite her small stature, her skill with the sword is at a master's level. She sometimes makes naïve comments due to her lack of acquaintance with Western culture.
