Ikki Kurogane is a Blazer, a person who can materialize his soul as a weapon. Unlike most Blazers, however, his aptitude for magic is virtually nonexistent. Branded a talentless failure and nicknamed "Worst One," he has spent his life honing his swordplay in order to become a Mage-Knight nonetheless.

Stella Vermillion is the second imperial princess of the Vermillion Empire and a powerful Rank A Blazer. Having spent her whole life undefeated in battle as a result of her incredible natural talent, she travels to Japan in search of powerful opponents, hoping to grow ever stronger and become an accomplished Mage-Knight herself.

The two meet at Hagun Academy, one of seven Mage-Knight schools in Japan, and soon realize that they share the same goal: to become a powerful Mage-Knight renowned for their hard work and skill, regardless of their level of talent. In order to reach that goal, their first step is to meet in the finals of the Seven Stars Battle Festival, a no-holds-barred tournament that gathers the strongest student knights from all seven schools across Japan, and fight for the title of Seven Stars King.

Can Ikki and Stella fight toe-to-toe with even the strongest of Blazers and achieve their dream of reaching the peak of knighthood?

Preliminary (15/? eps)
A light novel series that makes Harry Potter ashamed (IMO)

For people who know this light novel after watching the anime, trust me, the anime was very good if standing alone but it's just a 5 compared to the light novel which is a 10.

The story is very interesting based on a world where people can use magic and form a unique weapon from their souls called Device.
The characters are very well developed through 3 major arcs (there are many smaller arcs in these 3), the romance is also very interesting. I mean, how many light novels or novels out there have the 2 main ...

Preliminary (9/? eps)
Pretty good main characters, ok side characters, the sex scene was ok I guess I dont know I busted a nut to it regardless. Ikkis power is kind of bullshit, but whatever its cool. Sara is good nut material. Edelweiss is probably the best but this series is never going to be translated past volume 9 so its kind of pointless to read unless you want to sit around waiting years for every volume to be translated.
Overall there's some pretty good nut material here. Or hentai haven but if youre here like me for good nut material you probably already knew that one.
Edit: ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (9/? eps)
There is nothing hidden when it comes to this series. It's pretty basic, but it does what it tries to sufficiently. My main gripe, and the reason why I stopped reading it after 9 volumes, is that the unofficial translation is atrocious and significantly worsens around volume 9. I appreciate that someone applied their time and effort to accomplish such an endeavor as a fan translation, but the end result does not read well for native English speakers. I cannot attest to how accurate it is as I do not speak Japanese (obviously).

I enjoyed this series for what it was, and would have continued ...

Flaws in the Rankings of the Blazer System
