Plot Summary -->
sirgoodguy wrote:In an era where one’s soul can be morphed into a weapon, there are magicians called ‘Mage-knights’ or ‘Blazers’. Kurogane Ikki, labelled as the Failure Knight or Worst One is a student with particularly no talent in magic who attends an institution that trains Mage-knights.

Getting much less than average marks in the scoring, he was forced to repeat a year. But with the arrival of a new board chairman to Hagun Academy a new rule was created, knights of equal ability would share a room to help improve each other, regardless of gender.

Unknown to Ikki his roommate his new roommate has already arrived and is a girl a princess of foreign country called Stella Vermillion. Walking in on her while she was changing her clothes caused a huge misunderstanding which eventually ended up in a duel between Stella an A-rank knight a genius who is said to only appear once in a decade, and the worst ranked F-rank Ikki. Where the punishment for the losing side is ‘Eternal Submission’ to the winning side.

The story centres on Stella and Ikki’s cohabitation. Their growths and failures, and how Stella and Ikki's relationship evolve. The main focus of the story is the competition called the ‘Seven Holy Swords Festival’ (Sichiseikenbusai). Ikki is a failure knight who repeated a year but the new board chairman has made a deal with him that if he can stand at the ‘summit of the festival’ as the Seven Stars Sword King, he will be allowed to graduate no matter his marks.

Can Ikki win? Can Ikki become the Seven Stars Sword King? With his strength of the unbeatable one minute but the huge weakness of having only 10% of the mana compared to the average Mage-Knight? Compared to Stella with the mana 30 times that of the average Mage-Knight?


ABOUT MAGE-KNIGHTS -->
Mostly called ‘Blazers’ by the normal people. They are born one in a thousand. They each have control over a special type of energy/force called ‘mana’ which resides in their body. They can each materialize their soul in the form of a weapon. In addition to that, they each have a special power that comes with their weapon. The weapons they materialize can be swords, bows + arrows, daggers, lances, full body armour etc. And their special powers are like pyrokenisis, water control, shadow manipulation, invisibility, super speed, sound, telepathy (Like the various powers the mutants have in X-men) etc. These powers greatly depend on their weapons attribute.


CHARACTERS:

Kurogane Ikki :
Character profile page:
Spoiler! :
Image

Knight Rank – F
Nickname – Worst One/Failure Knight/Uncrowned King (I think, not sure)
Speciality – Swords + Close Quarter Combat with Them
Weapon Name/(Type) – Intetsu (Japanese Katana)
Ability – Doubling Physical Strength



Spoiler! :
A first year student of a Mage-knight’s academy. He has absolutely no talent in Magic control. Having less than 10% mana compared to that of an average person, he is branded as a failure knight. On the other hand, he is from the ‘respectable’ Kurogane family. They are the noble house where geniuses in magic each generation. Even the awesome and amazing ‘Samurai Ryouma’ who supposedly did something very cool during the world war (I cant f*cking remember what it is) is from the house of kurogane. So anyone who is good at magic arts is respected but anyone and everyone who is a defect/ has less magic potential than other geniuses is treated like garbage.
So you get the picture right? Ikki, ever since he was young was forcefully kept in solitude where the only one allowed to meet him is his parents and little sister, Kurogane Shizuku. Eventually he snaps out of his timid situation by the grace of ‘someone great’ and runs away. He enters the Mage-Knight school. But because the Kurogane family is so influential, they force the committee into failing him by implementing weird rules. But then he met Stella and everything changed….everything…..
Character wise, he is very very VERY gentle. Not ‘gentle’ like to asshole inconsiderate harem type heroes but a gentle boy who went through an unimaginable amount of mental suffering. His character is probably the result of his childhood. He has strong will power and has never ever let himself feel self pity/denial. Has a will that will never give up, even after he experienced failure so goddamn many times. As a human, he tries to treat everyone as friends even though he was treated like trash by his peers. Even the people he called friends once turned their back to him because of the influence of the Kurogane family. But that’s all in the past, and then Stella came into his life. ALSO, Ikki can be quite cruel when he needs to be. You know, like the type that doesn’t easily get mad but when they do…..well…bad things happen.
Ability wise, he is treated as trash. His special ability is ‘Doubling physical strength’. This is a very rare but useless power cause no matter how much ‘physical’ strength one has, they can match the destructive power of mana. Even martial arts in the novel’s universe is like Magic-Taijitsu. And also, the amount of mana he as is very less. But his sword arm is amazing. If it’s just technique alone, he can overwhelm even the board chairman [a poking powerful women who is in the world ranking is power]. And he, by himself, devised a one shot kill like technique that ables him to match up to even A-ranks called ‘Ikken Shura’. He can forcibly remove his brain limiters. He also has amazing observation and perceptive power. He can completely copy and then devise a counter technique for any martial arts/kendo move he watches.




Stella Vermillion :
Character profile page:
Spoiler! :
Image

Knight Rank – A
Nickname – Best One/Guren no Koujo (Crimson Lotus Imperial Princess)
Speciality – Long range attacks, Tsundereness
Weapon Name/(Type) – Guilty Blade of the Dragon/(Royal Sword)
Ability – Pyrokenisis AKA Fire manipulation/ Dragon Breath



Spoiler! :
The main heroine of this story. A tsundere, and a poking sexy one at that. She is the imperial Princess of the Principality of Vermillion. A genius in magic, having 30 folds the amount of mana than that of a normal mage. Ever since she was little she was treated as such too. Right now she is a very very strong knight with an amazing A-rank (something people don’t easily get). She can create dragon flames, also do some amazing laser tricks with lights (which will certainly disintegrate anything if it hits…and it mostly does hit). But she wasn’t this strong before. She had troubles controlling her huge amount of mana before, but she trained and trained a can perfectly handle it now. She doesn’t hate it when she is called a genius but she hates the fact that other people feel a sense of self-inferiority when they compare themselves to her. She hates people who give up. Specially because they come to duel her one after another but when they lose, they say stuff like “she’s a genius, it couldn’t be helped.”
Personality wise, she is..well…..a tsundere?? Erm, she has a royal highness like attitude but also gets well with commoners. I mean, when Ikki saw her naked, she said she would forgive him if he accepts the punishment of execution like it’s a completely logical and normal thing. Has a ‘なのよ’,‘わよ’,‘だよ’type of talking style. She has approximately 75% dere and 25% tsun in her. That’s why at first she acts all ‘I HATE YOU’ and ‘DIE’ with ikki and then it switched to ‘Th-tha-that’s not what I meant!!!’ and ‘I-its not like that!!’.
This hot chick was selected as Ikki’s roommate and sparring partner for their 1st year mainly because, there was none stronger than her and none weaker than Ikki (in terms of mana). But alas, they didn’t know that they had the same room and Ikki walked in when she was changing. That led to a duel with a condition that the loser must become the slave of the winner. She is a very very jealous girl. She’s got a good brain in her heads too. Will take Ikki’s side in anything unconditionally cause she falls heads over hill for him later in the story.
P.S. – She’s got a twintail type hairstyle and HUGE boobs.



Kurogane Shizuku
Knight Rank – B
Nickname – None (Annoying little sister)
Speciality – Long range attacks, Tsundereness
Weapon Name/(Type) – Some sorta short sword (?)
Ability – Water manipulation


Spoiler! :
Kurogane Ikki’s younger sister, Kurogane Shizuku is also a first year student of the academy. She entered the school chasing after Ikki, has a water manipulation/drainage type of ability.
This crazy chick is a genuine brocon. She, ever since she was little, loved Ikki. On their first meeting after 5-6 years or so, the first thing she did was stealing Ikki’s first kiss (Which ofcourse got both her and Ikki on Stella’s bad side :roll: ).
She usually has a poker face but is actually an emotional kind person. Unlike Ikki, she was born with exceptional talent in magic. That’s why she received completely different kind of treatment from her family. But she always hated the adults for how they treated Ikki. She harbours this strange belief that nobody, a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y nobody other than her can save Ikki. No one in the whole goddamn world can make Ikki happy other than her. So she vowed to become a perfect woman for her ‘Onii-sama’. Save him from the situations he faces and become more than just a sister.
She is also Arisu/Alice(?)’s roommate.
(So obviously she wasn’t happy with Ikki and Stella’s relationship.)

[Cat’s Comment: Yea………..LET HER BURN!!!]


Arisuin Nagi (有栖院凪)
Spoiler! :
Shizuku’s roommate. S/he is gay. Seriously, G-A-Y or Okama, as they say it politely in Japanese. According to her, s/he is a girl born in a guy’s body. S/he acts completely like a girl BUT dresses as s/he should as a boy (seems like s/he is aware of normal social rules where people born in a dude’s body wear a dudes clothes). S/he as an ‘Onee-chan’ type personality. S/he is also very caring. And is able to guess people’s feeling to a scary extent. Even though s/he is gay, s/he is rather social able. Shizuku treats her/him like an elder sister that she never had. Mainly about how to conquer Ikki, since Shizuku thinks her/his experience and knowledge about boys in unparalleled.
Her ability is also a really cool one. She can actually manipulate shadows. She can manipulate it, dive into shadows to go an underground ocean of shadow-water thingies and swim through it to teleport to another shadow and surface from there. A really cool and useful ability for assassin type character…but she isn’t. Her weapon is a dagger.

[Cat’s Comment: I have nothing against her for now.]


Shinguuji Kurono

Spoiler! :
The new board chairman (Female). She seems to be ridiculously strong and popular. Has a office woman like personality. But she seems to care about Ikki, since she made that special deal that if Ikki wins in the festival, she will let him graduate. In the first place, she purged the last chairman-teacher groupies that were bribed to fail Ikki in the test, then became the chairman. So she made the current academy corruption proof (maybe). Personality speaking, I like her the best in the series (ofcourse EXCLUDING Stella). She is friends whith Saikyo-sensei and was the one who hires Saikyo to be a teacher at the academy.
It was stated that, even though Ikki had a handicap, she once lost to Ikki in a battle (which was a impossible feat by itself. Handicap or not, things like that usually don’t count in the face of overwhelming might, and Ikki beat her like that). Maybe that’s why she was pissed at the Kuroganes and the board and decided to make a move.


Saikyo Nene
Nickname – Yashahime (Demon Princess)


Spoiler! :
Basically speaking, she is a loli teacher of the academy. She was hired by Kurono to be a teacher. She also commentates some of the competition matches.
She is an athlete too. She was chosen as the Japan Olympic representative.
Also, she is a top player of the <KOK> AKA <King Of Knights>. <KOK> is a stage of hand to hand fighting where super powerful blazer’s brawl with each other. It’s not weird to see hands, fingers and ears (of course legs too) flying around and being ripped apart in that stage. And she is a top player there with that loli body.
Has a really playful personality…I mean, really really laid back and playful personality.



(I might delete this soon, and before that I will add two more profiles....maybe...if I ever have the time. also, leave a comment if u like/hate the series base on this gibberish, later)

Coherent gibberish is coherent.

Also looks like Stella's ability is called "Dragon Breath" if I'm reading it right.
