The name of the business is Astral, and magic is its trade. Itsuki Iba is a school boy who seems to have a weak personality and not an ounce of magic within him, yet he inherits and must run his father's 'magic for hire' company after his father disappears. He must now learn to manage a diverse team of magic-wielders, gain their respect, and send them on missions to deal with the supernatural – all while attempting to excel in school and deal with competitors!
