Mikagura Academy is the main location where all events in the series take place.


Mikagura Academy is an academy with a boarding school system located in a place thought to be flowing with mystical energy in the middle of a forest with a magic barrier established by a miko from the Ichinomiya lineage encircling its area. However, normal people still can see it as an ordinary academy from the outside.
Mikagura Academy is also renowned for its cultural club activities and unique system called club battle. It consists of a middle school and a high school, and the buildings are located separately inside the academy. It also comes with many full-service facilities such as dormitories, battle sites, rooms (which also can be rented for any special occassions using points), buildings for clubs, and such. Students' dalily life is also monitored personally by the Headmistress through surveillance cameras all over the academy (except student's personal rooms and bathroom).
One can enroll to Mikagura by taking an admission test, being transferred from another school, or simply moving from the middle school to the high school. However, only people who have the nature of being able to awaken an ability will be accepted to the academy. Many of Mikagura Academy's alumnus would go on to become artists or scholars in society.
Mikagura Academy also has a sister school which is the exact opposite of it, by only having sports club activities.


As a school which is known for its tradition, there are quite a large number of events that are held in Mikagura Academy.

Rules & System

Rules are established in order to administer the school accordingly. Students are expected to obey these rules and the school's tradition and discipline.

Informational book rules

  • All freshmen must join one extracurricular activity club within the first month. Any student that does not do so will be expelled.
  • If a student wishes to create a new club, it will only be accepted if there are three potential members. However, keep in mind that the school only admits cultural activity clubs.
  • The tournaments are held at fixed intervals, and will determine the rank of all the clubs that exist in the school.


Once a student joins Mikagura Academy,he or she will be given an ability, enhanced reflexes, and improved emotional strength as a result from being inside the academy's location. As time goes by, the student will be informed in their final year that their memories about their ability and everything regarding school information will be erased once they leave the academy's location. However, if the student has been granted special permission after undergoing a strict inspection, they will be able to go outside without having their memory erased (such as when Shigure introduced the academy to Eruna).
