The anime series is set in the late 21st century. It seems to have been made in an alternate version of reality. As per the history, the Third World War has already taken place. It has divided the world into four superpowers – the United States of North America (USNA), the New Soviet Union, the Great Asian Alliance, and Japan.
The magic exists in this time. Thriving through the ages, it has become more polished with technology. In this 21st century, magic has been made into a systematized technology and is being taught as a technical discipline around the world. But, there is a catch. It is that genetics determine who can use magic. Not everyone can utilize magic power.
Japan has got a self-regulating magical community. A group of ten Master Clans under the government governs the magical community in Japan. The original magicians in Japan are few and limited in number. However, people have been forced into magical education and magic-related professions. There are a total of 9 magic teaching school.

The schools divide the enrolled students into two different groups based on their entrance exam scores. The top students’ group called Blooms gets the school’s First Course. The second one Weeds get the Second Course.
Getting a high score, Miyuki gets admitted to the First Course while Tatsuya couldn’t get good marks. So, he gets assigned to the Second one. Despite being magically inept, Tatsuya has got extraordinary technical knowledge, magical techniques, and physical combat abilities. These things make him ‘irregular’ at magic school separating him from other Weeds.
Then, we come to know that Tatsuya is actually the bodyguard of Miyuki, the candidate to the leadership of the Yotsuba Clan, one of the ten Master Clans in Japan. Tatsuya knows his weakness of not being great at Magic, still, he has to master his abilities to protect Miyuki from harm.
