Fun slice of life that reads a bit like mash up fan fiction. It’s set in a future world were a cataclysmic change occurred bringing monsters and great evils into the world. This same change gave the few human survivors powers and abilities to fight the monsters. These survivors took this raw power and used anime and manga as their inspiration to create controlled powers.
Over time the original stories became myth and the clans took on their names. So you have thing like the Belmont Clan, teachers named Professor Strange, and an old wise martial arts instructor named Roshi.
The MC has a tragic past that is gradually revealed in flashback chapters. He’s attending this school where he competes and learns with other teens like him. Teens with powers and martial training who are being taught to harness their powers and increase their levels and ranks.
In this episode, there’s an introduction of a sport that gets people in teams and an inter school competition.
Mostly slice of life stuff, sports, classes, school rivalry, crafting
But about ¾ in you get a development of a larger plot point for the series. Overall, it is fun, parody stuff. If you like the characters and the fighting, it’s fun to follow the MC on his slice of life adventure.
