For the observation and obliteration of this fourth primogenitor, the government and Lion King Organization decided to dispatch an attack mage known as a Sword Shaman. For some reason, the one chosen for the observation was an apprentice Sword Shaman girl, Yukina Himeragi, who is just a middle-school girl!

Wielding the strongest anti-demon spirit spear, Yukina arrived at Demon District, Itogami Island to find the fourth progenitor. When she finds him, she becomes confused about the true identity of the fourth progenitor, Kojou Akatsuki. Not to mention the boy cannot remember how or why he is the fourth progenitor!
