This is a story about girls (called "Maedchen") who are selected by “Origin”. They attend school of witchcraft located all over the world to wield their magic and become first-rate “Origin Masters”. Their goal is to win at the annual Hexennacht competition, where representatives of each school compete in their abilities to wield their magic. The winner gets to have one wish magically granted. Due to lack of members, Japan might not be able to attend the annual competition this year. but things start to change when one day Shizuka Tsuchimikado, the leader of Japan meets Hazuki Kagimura.

Hisashi Saito (Haganai, Fantasista Doll, Bamboo Blade) is the chief director for the anime, and Shigeru Ueda (RIN - Daughters of Mnemosyne, Senran Kagura: Estival Versus - Festival Eve Full of Swimsuits) is directing the anime at Hoods Entertainment.
