Crunchyroll describes the series as:

Set in a fairy tale world where everyone receives a book upon their birth. These books written by a mysterious storyteller, determine every detail of the owner’s life, trapping that individual into a preordained fate. This story stars a hero without a predetermined story, someone free to decide his fate. However, since he has only blank pages in his book, he can only wander to find his purpose. What follows, is a journey where our hero travels across lands to meet characters from the pages of some of the most famous fairy tales. Our hero must fight together with the various characters he meets to win back his story.

Mysteria Academy is a prestigious magic school that teaches magic without discrimination to the three factions (men, gods, demons), who usually are engaged in battle with each other.
