Nine Schools Competition

Nine Schools Competition 2095


The contests in the Nine School Competition focus on the events in athletic magic contests that require more Magic Power. The events were changed every competition in the past, but in recent years the same contests are seen every year.

Monolith Code

  • Tatsuya, Leo and Mikihiko in Monolith Code.
  • Opened Monolith.

Monolith Code (秘碑解碼) is a men's only game. At the competition site, called a "Stage", magic is used to fight over the "Monolith", with each team having three players. The outcome is determined by splitting the monolith in the enemy encampment and transmitting a concealed code. Any attacks other than magic are forbidden.

Breaking the monolith requires that it be struck with a special Non-systematic Magic. Due to the nature of the event, this game is the most popular among the Nine Schools Competition. [1]

Mirage Bat

  • Players competing in Mirage Bat.
  • Mirage Bat stadium.
  • Miyuki's Mirage Bat Uniform

Mirage Bat (幻境摘星) or "Fairy Dance" is a women's only game. With the elaborate costumes and how the players fly around, they are often likened to fairies. Among players, this game is called "Mirage". Holographic spheres are projected in the air, and players must compete by using magic to rise into the air and hit the orbs with their sticks.

Though this competition has the fewest number of games of all in the Nine Schools Competition, the play time is typically the longest. During the game, Players must continuously invoke magic to leap into the air. It is said the burden is similar to running a full marathon. Sometimes people called it "battle of Magical Girls".

Speed Shooting

Speed Shooting (精速射擊), also known as "Quick Draw", is a game where clay targets are shot into the designated space and destroyed by magic. One-hundred red and white targets are released and the players compete by destroying their colored targets.

In the Preliminaries, players only compete to destroy as many targets as possible within a five-minute time limit. Beginning at the Quarter-finals, the scoring system is put into place as contestants compete against each other.

Icicle Destruction / Ice Pillar Break

  • Icicle Destruction / Ice Pillar Break
  • Icicle Destruction / Ice Pillar Break stadiums

Icicle Destruction (冰柱攻防) or "Ice Pillar Break" is a game where two players stand on a tower four meters in height, defending twelve pillars contained in twelve meter square area while attacking twelve pillars in the opposition's field.

Players compete to destroy the opponent's pillars before their own are broken. There is no need to use the body, since players compete remotely with magic, so players may wear whatever they wish, with the only restriction being that "It Must Not Offend Public Order or Morals".

It is said the Women's Pillar Break has become a fashion show in recent years. Also, it can be assumed that it is the only game where even Lethal Rank A magic can be used due to it not being a directly combative sport as mentioned by Fujibayashi, Kyouko.

Crowd Ball

Crowd Ball (群球搶分) is a game where 6 cm diameter foam balls are shot into the competition area using compressed air. Players compete by using a racket or magic to force the balls to hit the opponent's court.

One set lasts 3 minutes, and a ball is shot into the court, covered in a transparent box, every 20 seconds, leading to 9 balls being on the court simultaneously. Women have 3 sets per match while Men have 5 sets.

Battle Board

  • Mari in Battle Board
  • Battle board circuit

Battle Board (沖浪競速), also referred to as "Surfing", is a game that originated as a method for training naval forces.

Players receive a board similar to a surfing board and must complete three laps on an artificial channel 3 km in length by making full use of magic to propel them forward.

Players compete for victory. According to the rules, use of magic to directly interfere with other players is forbidden, though you are allowed to use magic on the water to indirectly interfere. The Preliminaries consists of six races, four players each. Two Semi-Finals games are held with three contestants each. A playoff is held to determine third place, while the top Players from each Semi-finals race will compete one-on-one in the finals.

It should be noted that on the anime, the flow of water within the course goes backwards or opposite the direction the players race which differentiates it with non-magic surfing (During Mitsui, Honoka's final race, the water visibly flows backward from the top of the last ramp with the other side flowing straight down into a calm stretch). This fact shows that the game not only requires the players to use their magic skills to outwit or interfere with their opponents, it also requires them to be able to constantly use magic to propel themselves forward.
