The story of the original light novels and manga revolves around high school girl Eruna Ichinomiya, who enters the Mikagura Academy dreaming of a boarding school life filled with beauty. However, Eruna finds out that in the culture clubs, there is a rule that battles that are fought with special powers decide a club representative's treatment. Through various circumstances, Eruna becomes a representative of a club, and is thrown into the fray.
A manga adaptation of the novels began in Comic Gene in August 2013 with art by Sayuki. Kadokawa shipped the fifth novel in December 25, and released the third compiled volume of the manga in September.
