Crunchyroll describes The Asterisk War Second Season as follows:
Invertia–The astral catastrophe that annihilated many cities in the 20th century also gave birth to an all new human race with special abilities called the Genestella (the Star-Pulse Generation). At the same time, the special element (Mana) found within the meteors of Invertia facilitated humanity’s technological advancement. Upon Rikka, the academy-city above water, or what many call the “Asterisk,” students of the six schools prepare for the Festa. These annual comprehensive battle tournaments are held on a worldwide scale and each of the six schools place their hopes in their teams to bring them victory. In the Phoenix Festa (tag-team battle) category, Seidoukan Academy’s Ayato Amagiri takes up the challenge along with his partner Julis, the Witch of the Resplendent Flames (Glühen Rose).
Aniplex of America holds the rights to both seasons of The Asterisk War in North America. the first season is currently streaming in its entirety on Crunchyroll.
