All is not lost, though, as Arata’s reality may be artificially restored by using the magical grimoire bequeathed to him by his childhood friend and cousin Hijiri Kasuga. Lilith Asami arrives in front of Arata, whose manufactured world abruptly disintegrates and presents him with two options: either hand over the book or die.

These six, together with Lilith, make up the Trinity Seven, the school’s elite, each having a special power and skill. With the desire to save Hijiri and the assistance of his newfound allies, Arata will go to any length to preserve his beloved village and bring his closest buddy back.
