Magician Dispatch Service and Mage’s Society: Astral, has seen better days. Sure they have in their employ a good variety of magic users, covering all the bases like Celtic magic, King Solomon’s magic, Shinto, Onmyodo, Alchemy, Vajrayana and Rune magic, making them capable of dealing with just about any magical emergency, but the real problem lies with Astral’s current leader, the second president and son of the original founder, young Itsuki Iba.
The issue is simple enough: kind hearted, tender and well-meaning Itsuki isn’t a mage, and in fact knows just about nothing about magic or even the spiritual rules governing our world. However, despite the fact that everyone around him, himself included, doesn’t believe that he is the right man (or boy) for the job, the society’s law places him firmly as the leader and so with the help of his friends and colleagues, he’ll just have to make the best of a bad situation.
However, in between all the battling of spiritual monsters and the constant rivalry with the other big name mage dispatch servicem, Goetia, Itsuki does come bearing some rather powerful secrets. For one, his right eye remains constantly covered, and two he experiences deep pain whenever around anything spiritual.
The question is, what happens when he does reveal what lies beneath the eye patch?
