Gakusen Toshi Asterisk

The Academy City on the water, Rikka (otherwise known as Asterisk) is the world’s largest stage for the integrated battle entertainment, “Star Wars Festival.” The young boys and girls of the “Starpulse Generation” belonging to the six academies made their wishes with Shining Armaments in their hands, vying for supremacy – Amagiri Ayato is one of them. Ayato arrived at Rikka at the invitation of the Student Council President of the Seidoukan Academy, Claudia, and right after that he incurred the wrath of the “Petalblaze Witch” Julis, and ended up having to duel her. The greatest academy battle entertainment, begins here!

Ayato Amagiri
The main protagonist of the series who uses the Amagiri Shinmei Style. He transfers to Seidōkan Academy to investigate his sister’s disappearance and to figure out what he is supposed to do (he later says that it is to protect Julis). On his first day, he is challenged to a duel by Julis because of the embarrassing events that happen between them. During the duel, an unknown attacker shoots an arrow at Julis, but she is saved by Ayato. Before they can continue, the duel is stopped by Claudia, the student council president. Ayato also meets his childhood friend, Saya, whom he has not seen for five years. While Julis is showing Ayato and Saya around the city the next day as thanks for him saving her during the duel, Saya claims that Ayato is a powerful opponent whose opponents never live to tell the tale, which Julis does not believe.

Julis-Alexia von Riessfelt

Rank 5 of Seidōkan Academy and also known as “Glühende Rose”, she is Lieseltania’s First Princess. Her full name is Julis-Alexia Marie Florentia Renate von Riessfelt. She wields a rapier-type lux called Aspera Spina which she uses during the Phoenix tournament and bears the image of a flower for her power – control over flames. She warms to Ayato, unlike the other students with whom she is distant. After their duel, Julis and Ayato join together for the Phoenix with Julis acting as the strategist for them. Her rapier (Aspera Spina) breaks during the last match of the Phoenix and she later switches to Nova Spina (volume 7).

Saya Sasamiya

Daughter of Soichi and Kaya Sasamiya, Saya is Ayato’s childhood friend. She moved abroad six years ago due to her father’s career. She seems to be an air-headed stoic who has trouble waking up in the morning and is directionally-challenged. She uses a 38th generation Lux grenade launcher Helnekrom but later switch to a type 41 Gleaming Form – twin particle guns Waidenholt and Type 34 wave Motion heavy artillery Ark Van Ders for the Phoenix. Like Kirin, she entered the Phoenix for her father’s sake.

Kirin Tōdō

Former #1 of Seidōkan Academy. She is a shy and quiet girl who attained top ranking as a 13 year-old and hadn’t lost to anyone until Ayato challenged her a second time. Their first duel happened because Ayato stopped her uncle from hitting her and challenged him to a duel. Kirin was his opponent and she used her lightning speed to defeat him. She seems to be under her uncle’s influence but her friendship with Ayato allows her to break free. Kirin entered the Phoenix in order to clear her father’s name and free him from jail. She does not have a personal lux but rather carries a katana (Senbakiri) around as a weapon. She and Saya team up for the Phoenix but they lose to Allekant’s puppets Ardi and Rimsi in the semifinal.

Irene Urzaiz

Le Wolfe’s rank #3.

Ernesta Kühne

A student from Allekant Academy and leader of Pygmalion (Sculptor Faction). A genius at making puppets, she wants AIs to be treated as equal to humans and sees Ardi and Rimsi as her children.
