Story Synopsis

Direct translation from the back of the book:

"In the Japan of a 1000 years from now. A humanity that has acquired the telekinetic power called 'Jyuryoku', while terrified of the legendary abominations called 'A’ki' (Fiends) and 'Gouma' (Karmic Demons), has built a peaceful society. However, a group of children previously under the school’s strict control, as a result of violating a certain rule, have suddenly descended into a nightmare! The false peace crumbles away, as a fantastic archive tells them the truth of humanity’s bloodstained history!?"

Outside Project

I've learned that at least one other person is working on a fan translation independent of this one. His/Her progress can be found here. He/She has completed almost all of Part 1 as of this post(April 2013) and seems dedicated to continuing. Given how well the Anime follows the novels, I see no reason for both of us to overlap completely by translating in the same order. As such, I'll be continuing from Part 3 Chapter 3 to the end before looping back to overlap what others have already translated of the start.
