They were the chosen, protecting worlds from threatening monsters. However, over time, they became threats themselves. A girl who wants to live in a peaceful world and a truth that will break her longtime friendship. ♎ ♈ ♌ Arisa, Kazuya, and Zen have been friends since childhood. For Arisa, their friendship is the cause of her smile in this chaotic world. In a world that suffers attacks from other worlds' creatures, the chosen Guardians once fought for our world's survival. Blessed with the powers given by the stars, those same Guardians have now become threats themselves. Despite hearing tales of when Guardians were still heroes, Arisa refuses to grow a likeness for them. Even when one is always there to save her from troubles, she doesn't believe that they will ever return to the heroes they once were. Due to their more recent despicable behavior, she wishes only to stop them. Her wish is granted when she is chosen as a candidate to compete to become a new Guardian. Even though she hates them, in order to overthrow them, she has to become one. She accepts the challenge. But she never knew that the road to becoming a Guardian would be more challenging than she ever imagined.
