AntiMagic Academy ‘The 35th Test Platoon’ Story:
The school action fantasy is set in a world where people with magic powers are close to being wiped out.

Takeru Kusanagi goes to “AntiMagic Academy,” a training facility for Inquisitors of Heretics who crack down on the dwindling threat posed by magic users.
However, Takeru cannot use guns at all and can only fight with a sword. As a result, he is relegated to the 35th Test Platoon, the motley “small fry platoon” for poor students. One day, Ouka Ohtori, the ultra-elite pistol master who already has her qualifications for witch-hunts, joins the platoon.
