During a Literature Club meeting, the four club members—along with their faculty adviser's niece—suddenly find themselves with supernatural powers. Now capable of fabricating black flames, resident chuunibyou Jurai Andou is the most ecstatic about their new abilities; unfortunately, his own is only for show and unable to accomplish anything of substance. Moreover, he is completely outclassed by those around him: fellow club member Tomoyo Kanzaki manipulates time, Jurai's childhood friend Hatoko Kushikawa wields control over the five elements, club president Sayumi Takanashi can repair both inanimate objects and living things, and their adviser's niece Chifuyu Himeki is able to create objects out of thin air. However, while the mystery of why they received these powers looms overhead, very little has changed for the Literature Club. The everyday lives of these five superpowered students continue on, albeit now tinged with the supernatural.

The only harem show worth your time.


Looks like a stereotypical show about super powered teens but actually takes an interesting approach to it and ends up not so stereotypical.


Okay I lowkey love this show, and really wished there was more. Generic as shit, but enough freshness to be fun.


Kids randomly get super powers, and it’s full of anime high school tropes! And it that is about it really….what a waste


I think the cookie cutter characters and plot took any potential from the story


Loved it, but there needs to be more of it; it ended too quickly.


While it may not be that popular from the wild, this one caught my eye and enjoyed watching it (seriously)
