Lapis Re: LiGHTs Synopsis
Tiara, a princess from the kingdom of Waleland, travels to the city of Mamkestell to attend a prestigious academy for those who practice magic like her. After passing a test to prove her eligibility, Tiara reunites with her childhood friend Rosetta, who is also a student there. So, she joins and meets Rosetta’s group: the athletic Lavie, the dependable Ashley, and the bibliophile Lynette, with whom Tiara quickly becomes friends. At this institution, students are classified into one of three ranks based on their test scores: the Noir group is the highest, followed by Rouge and Lapis.
Tiara’s group is classified as Lapis, and to top it off, those who fail while classified as Lapis face expulsion. Realizing her dire situation, Tiana urges everyone to start taking their activities more seriously. In addition, Tiara has one more purpose to stand out in the academy: to become more like her older sister, who is a very skilled singer. However, to get to the stage you want, you will have to overcome many challenges, together with your companions, while continuing your magical journey.
