Publisher's SummaryEdit

"There, a girl has been captured."

At the city where psychic abilities are recognized — Academy City — a school named Misawa Cram School holds captive a shrine maiden. And, it seems like the perpetrator is somebody from the Magic Side. Kamijou Touma has things explained to him by the Magician Stiyl, with the former giving out obedient responses.

"Don't just nod when you want to. We're going together."


Under the midsummer sun, an ominous-looking building towers over the skyline, and two people walk towards it.

The Magician, Deep Blood, Index, and Kamijou Touma. When all the lines intersect, a new story shall begin!

A certain unlikely hero...

In Academy City, where superhuman abilities are scientific reality, Touma Kamijou is trying to reconstruct a life for himself, but that's easier said than done with a girl by his side with the arcane knowledge of 103,000 grimoires rattling around in her brain...

Now seemingly inextricably caught up in a world where magic is reality, Kamijou learns that a certain shrine maiden is being held captive in one of Academy City's cram schools. Can Touma ally himself with a sorcerer who has on more than one occasion tried to do him in? The only thing we knows for sure is that he really does have rotten luck...
