A long time ago, a global disaster, later named "Invertia," caused the appearance of Genestella, the children possessing supernatural abilities. They are faster, stronger, and smarter compared to the rest of the people. Additionally, some gifted geniuses are able to cure people, and even predict the future. These gifted children attend one of the six Academies that compete with each other.

The story follows Ayato Amagiri, a student who attends Seidoukan Academy. The Academy is located in the city of Rikka, also known as Asterisk. It's a prestigious institution for the very skilled students possessing supernatural powers. Each student of the Academy must prepare for the entertaining battles known as "Festas." This is a chance to showcase their skills.

However, for Ayato, his first day at the Academy turned an epic fail. He has become a casual witness of his female classmate dressing up. As a result, she calls him to a duel. But an Ayato's real goal is not to participate in Festas. He is attempting to find his missing sister instead. Nonetheless, as turned out, Ayato is an excellent fighting partner. In Season 2, the protagonists participate in the Phoenix Festa.

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk is being canceled on Animax and thereby will not return for a next season. Unfortunately, this is the official data.
