Misora Whitale has all the enthusiasm to be a leader, but she’s failed 100 consecutive tests. Rico Flamel is a genius sniper, but she’s a little self-absorbed, and Lecty Eisenach is a candidate with all the ambition, but zero confidence.

 

It’s up to Kanata Age to train the troubled trio to become accomplished Sky Wizards.
