“Why does she get all the attention?!”
Ikki and Stella continue to rack up wins in their selection battles, but despite their progress in battle, they’ve made little to no progress romantically. To make matters worse, a pretty upperclassman girl, Ayase Ayatsuji, has been taken under Ikki’s wing as his apprentice in swordplay, making Stella’s jealousy flare up more than ever.
One day, Ikki finds himself tangled up in a conflict between Ayase and her fated enemy: the Sword Eater, Kuraudo Kurashiki! Will he be able to survive his duel with a student who reached the quarterfinals of last year’s Seven Stars Battle Festival?
A battle with a student council member, the feeling of distance between him and his girlfriend, and a duel off school grounds with the ace of another school—the curtain rises anew on the second part of Ikki’s school-based, sword-action underdog tale as he cuts through yet more powerful foes!
