Plot[edit]

The series revolves around seven high school students who are internationally renowned for their exceptional abilities. They include Prime Minister Tsukasa Mikogami, genius inventor Ringo Ohoshi, former ninja and journalist Shinobu Sarutobi, world renowned doctor Keine Kanzaki, swordswoman Aoi Ichijo, skilled magician Prince Akatsuki and multi-millionaire Masato Sanada. One day, they survive a plane crash only to find themselves in a medieval fantasy world called Freyjagard.

In this world, two human races live side by side in a somewhat feudal society: the Byuma, who possess animal features and formidable strength, and the Hyuma, who possess limited magical aptitude. After being rescued by a Byuma named Winona and her adopted Elven daughter Lyrule, the group decides to repay the people of Elm Village by using their advanced skills and knowledge to revolutionize the village and its culture.

The group also learns of an ancient legend, that narrates how an evil dragon was slain by seven heroes who came from another world. Believing that there is a connection between the legend and their present situation, Tsukasa, who is also the leader of the group, directs the others to learn about this new world and also search for any clues that could lead them back to Earth. However, the group's ideas become a threat to the ruling Freyjagard Empire, who promote atheism and social Darwinist belief that only the strong nobility shall rule and the weak commoners must obey the nobles or suffer punishment. The conflict with the Empire soon leads the Seven Prodigies to create a new nation with equal rights and democracy for the people.

Also known as "Duke Fastidious", Gustav was a mage who gained recognition during the Freyjagard Empire's war with the Yamato Empire and was granted the title of Duke and lands to rule. Despite being a powerful mage, Gustav is revealed to be a horrible ruler where he confiscated money and starves his people to build statues and towns as a sign of his devotion to the Emperor, not caring that many people died or forced themselves into cannibalism just to survive. He is madly loyal to the Emperor to the point that he considers any slights to be a major offense that deserves death. Due his poor leadership skills where he sent his army to crush the Seven-Light Faith despite lacking winter gear, his army is defeated by the better armed and prepared army of the Seven-Light faith, allowing the Azure Brigade to attack his castle unopposed.

Masato and Elch run into trouble acquiring money and supplies for Elm Village when they discover the Neutscheland Company has a virtual monopoly on the flow of commerce throughout Dormundt. While the rest of the high schoolers do various odd jobs at the village, Shinobu uses her skills to dig up scandalous information on the Mayor of Dormundt, allowing Masato to acquire a permit to trade under the name "Elm Trading Company." After taking in a homeless girl named Roo, Masato and Elch visit some local merchants and offer to help them sell their wares in Dormundt through a consignment shop, where they'd undercut Neutscheland by charging less and only taking 10% of the profits from each sale, as long as the merchants stock and man the stores themselves. Masato's shop quickly becomes popular, selling everything from rugs to Tsukasa's homemade mayonnaise, and sends money and supplies to Elm Village. Neutscheland dismisses the Elm Trading Company as a nuisance at first, but when the Sea Serpent maritime merchant company begins trading with Masato, Neutscheland decides to take the threat seriously, setting up a rival store to undercut Elm's prices and drive them out of business. Masato shows Elch several Buma standing outside, hinting that they are part of his plan to destroy Neutscheland for good.

Meanwhile, Masato and his companions return to Elm Village only for them and the rest of the villagers to get arrested by soldiers of Marquis Findolf led by his knight, Inzagi. Inzagi falsely charges the villagers for treason with his absurd claim that peasants that try to rise above their station and having gold coins is considered a crime against the nobility.

However, Tsukasa survives unhurt thanks to his suit being made of bulletproof fibers and takes out his own handgun. The Marquis begs for his life but Tsukasa shoots him with a rubber bullet instead since the Prodigies actions and ideals have already made them enemies of the Empire and they will not stop until the revolution is complete.

Meanwhile, Shinobu and Elch travel to Buchwald where they learn the Empire is sending an army to reclaim Findolf from the Prodigies led by Duke Oslo El Gustav, a war hero and notorious control freak.

Later that night, Lyrule confronts Tsukasa in his office where he reveals he used to admire his father, the previous Japanese Prime Minister until he learned how corrupt his father was and with the help of his friends, exposed his father's corruption which got him arrested and then executed but this damaged his relationship with his mother since she loved her husband and never forgave Tsukasa. Since then, Tsukasa devoted himself to becoming a selfless politician for the people which saddens Lyrule who tells him that she will be there for him and never hate him.

Elch confronts Emerada over the dead travellers, which Emerada apologizes and explains that Coconono was once a normal farming village but when Duke Gustav took over their lands, he forced the villagers to turn Coconono into a beautiful town using the villagers own money and ordered them to always keep their clothes clean, meaning they could no longer farm for food or earn money. His obsessive rules put a toll on the villagers lives to the point where they were forced into cannibalism just to survive, which many of them regret. Meanwhile, Jeanne frees Shinobu and reveals that she is actually a member of the Azure Brigade, whom opposes Duke Gustav's tyranny and asks for her help.

They agree and Tsukasa asks Ringo to accompany him around town to a popular food spot, causing her to believe it is a date. Ringo asks Aoi and Keine for advice on approaching boys, but their experience is limited to their skills and not in romance. Shinobu offers the best advice when she says to follow a multi-step plan that involves holding hands and indirect kisses. They begin their tour of the town and are forced to wear disguises in order to fend off the attention of the commoners. Before Ringo is able to implement her plan to hold hands with Tsukasa, they arrive at the restaurant, foiling the first step. When she switches drinks with Tsukasa to share an indirect kiss, she passes out in embarrassment when it ends up being successful. She ends up dreaming about her upbringing with her mother, who was artificially inseminated in order to create a prodigy child. However, her mother abandoned her out of spite when Ringo began winning awards for her genius at such a young age. Left with nothing, she contemplated her existence before Tsukasa appeared at her school one day and kept giving her broken objects to fix. This gave her a reason to live and caused her to fall in love with him. She awakens from her dream on Tsukasa's lap and happily states that it is thanks to him that she is where she is today.

Shinobu discovers Conrad is planning to have the Azure Brigade rejoin the Freyjagard Empire, just as Tsukasa predicted of their betrayal. Elsewhere, a Septicaemia epidemic has spread amongst the commoners which Keine attempts to cure despite suffering a Penicillin shortage due to Ringo's newest project. However, Count Serentius of the Medical Guild demands Keine allows his Guild to sell opium to the sick, but Keine refused. She instead makes a deal with Serentius that she will cure the sick using coal, and if she fails, she will allow him to sell opium. With the help of Lyrule's magic and Keine's knowledge of chemistry, they turn the coal into sulfonamide, making enough to cure all of the patients. Count Serentius and his men attempt to poison the sulfonamide to ruin the Seven-Light faith reputation, but is stopped by Keine, who subsequently lobotomizes them into faithful people. Meanwhile, Ringo finally finishes her latest work, an ICBM. At the Empire, General Neuro allows Conrad and the Azure Brigade to rejoin the Empire but wants them to destroy the Seven-Light Faith, whose ideas of equality goes against the Empire's survival of the fitness mantra by providing them with an army and a mysterious mage named Tanganika.

As he marvels his new powers, Gustav is suddenly blown up by Ringo's newly built ballistic missile. The sight of the blast is seen from Dormundt, where the Prodigies contemplate the use of the weapon. Ringo comforts Tsukasa, who believes he will be hated for using such destructive means to negotiate diplomacy with the other nations. The next day, the Prodigies give a speech to their citizens, where Tsukasa reveals that they are now one nation, known as the Elm Republic, and must defend themselves as a republic, not under a dictatorship. While giving the speech, a pillar of fire suddenly appears, revealing Gustav, who transforms into a demon and attacks the Prodigies. Aoi and Shinobu attempt to dispatch of him, using the mysterious gem protruding from Gustav's chest as their target, but are knocked back. Gustav leaps toward Tsukasa, who pulls out a handgun and destroys the gem as the demon reaches him. As he dies, Gustav warns Tsukasa of the trials ahead of him and boasts that the Prodigies will never succeed. Elsewhere, a trio from the Yamato Empire and General Neuro observe the events in Dormundt with the latter proposing that the Seven-Light Faith may be an obstacle for him. The next day, Tsukasa, believing himself to be inferior to the abilities of the other Prodigies, contemplates Gustav's warning. He is greeted by the other Prodigies, who have developed a biodegradable container to sell mayonnaise, and rejoice the defeat of Gustav and the birth of the Elm Republic with the townsfolk.

Reception[edit]
