A girl loses everything in one day: her village and, what is worse, her father…

Instead, she gains a new power.

When she picks up a sword to protect herself and her loved ones, she discovers that it is “cursed” and has immense power.

Having obtained something that could shake the foundations of the nation, the girl has no choice but to live on the battlefield.

The ultra-nationalist Nirvana Military Academy becomes their new home. There, young men and women who excel in combat gather to compete and hone their skills, regardless of their background.

Meet new people, form strong bonds, and find what you thought you had lost: a place to belong.

This is the story of the girl and the cursed talking sword at her side.
