In the original novel series' story, the five members of the literature club awakened with extraordinary powers half a year ago. Although the members expected to be thrown into a world of super-powered battles (inō-battle) at their school, their normal daily routine continued. No secret organizations bent on World Destruction, no super-powered wars, no braves or demon kings.
However, the members still look forward to the possibilities of adventure, and continued to believe that with each day, they were getting ever closer to those days of fantasy. Their days of romantic comedy and battles with extraordinary powers begin!
Nozomi started the light novel series with illustrations by The Devil Is a Part-Timer! artist Oniku (029) in 2012. He had made his debut earlier with 3rd GA Bunko Prize finalist Happy Death Day. Kōsuke Kurose launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Comp Ace magazine last September, and Kadokawa published the first compiled volume in March.
