"In hopes of bringing peace to Earth, Asuka R♯ stands among the highest capable magic wielders. As both a scientist and a master of magic, some would call him a genius. While intellectually unparalleled, he severely lacks stamina, with the slightest exercise tiring him out. As he continues to transmit "clear numbers" from space, he often finds himself involved in discord, although he is still found to be polite and humble. Resting at the pinnacle of high magical capabilities, he is a highly technical character, wielding 26 types of Spells with various effects beneficial for battle. Today also sees the announcement of the new battle stage, Tír na nÓg. After becoming an abandoned space colony, this unique home was created by humankind to survive in outer space. This stage houses various items reflecting its current residents, from a giant telescope to a Japanese-style garden."
