Ryou entered a rather unusual private boarding school built in the middle of a forest. Even though Takaramori Gakuen had turned co-ed three years ago, there were not many boys possibly due to the school not being well-known and its long history as a girl’s school. He became the focus of attention from all the curious girls since he was the only boy in the class.
Tired from the sudden attention, he was taking a break during lunch in the courtyard when his classmate Chiyuri invited him to join her occult club (which was registered as the literature club). He didn’t have any club in mind, so he agreed to temporarily join as a trial member.
That night, they went to the old school building to investigate one of the seven mysteries in the school: the ‘spell of the large mirror’. It is said that if you touch the antique mirror in the hallway at midnight while strongly wishing for something, it will come true. As he was being hurried by Chiyuri, he wished to fall in love and carelessly tripped while touching the mirror.
When he came to, he found himself back in his own room. He thought nothing of it and headed to school, where he met a girl who he didn’t recognize, Mayuki. She was wearing a beautiful dress, but it matched the surroundings. Mayuki interacted with him like they had always been close friends, and while he felt a bit uncomfortable being suddenly so close to a girl, he was actually quite happy inside. When he arrived at the classroom, everyone wore pretty dresses and quickly became his friends. It was as if it was a dream.
The next day, Mayuki was nowhere to be seen and no one knew of her existence. He thought that it might have been caused by the spell and headed back to the old school building at midnight, but there was no change in the reflection. Thus, he returned home downcast and went to sleep.
However, he saw Mayuki again in his dreams. The magic mirror had created a dream world and he could meet her every night when he slept. So begins his dual life attending both school in the real world and the dream world.
