One of these is the red-haired Claire Rouge, who insists that Kamito become her contracted humanoid spirit. But Kamito cannot forget his one and only wish: to take back his former partner, Restia Ashdoll.

    @theredjet Yep, you're right. I was thinking of another series instead: Seiken Tsukai no World Break. I don't know why but I often confuse the two series. 😩

  • @TheRedJet

    Well maybe this series is too old to get licensed, but the author just announced a new light novel wich seems to have the same theme - magical battle academy. Maybe we will be more lucky with this one.

    I'm not sure if there are enough people with enough patience to follow this kind of story through 20 volumes, the story is kind of generic. It can get interesting at some point, but most of the time you can guess the development, and that's especially true for the first 3 vols (a.k.a. the anime). I'm waiting for the fan translation of the last volume, but I have to admit that I only want to finish what I started when I did a spree on the school battle genre. The releasing speed for the last few volumes was slowed down (because the author needed to finish the zero no tsukaima series), and that actually helped keeping me from becoming too fed up with it.
    Anw, it's unfortunate that this novel had to change illustrator twice. I still prefer the original style.
