About The irregular at magic high school: Visitor Arc:
October 31, 2095.
The southernmost tip of the Korean Peninsula was annihilated by an unidentified Strategic-Class magic.
Known as “Scorched Halloween,” this day marked the arrival of a new Strategic-Class magician who would shake up the world. Sensing an impending crisis, the USNA secretly deploys Stars–the most powerful magician unit in the world–in a desperate attempt to uncover the truth about the unidentified Strategic-Class magic and the magician who used it.
Approximately two months later, on December 24, as people bustle about the city decorated with Christmas lights, Tatsuya and his friends gather at Cafe Einebrise for Shizuku’s farewell party before she leaves for a three-month trip to America as an exchange student.
According to her, a girl about her age will be entering Magic High School as her visiting counterpart. Meanwhile, at the USNA Stars’ base, a girl prepares to go undercover to investigate First High School.
Her name is Angelina Kudou Shields. She is the youngest person in the history of Stars to become commander, and as the USNA’s most powerful magician she wields the Strategic-Class magic known as Heavy Metal Burst.
