But it turns out that Alice Academy is a lot more than meets the eye. If Mikan wants to stay by Hotarus side, she has to both pass the strange entrance exam and face the even greater challenge of befriending her very odd new classmates. Whether its Hotarus gift for inventing gadgets, the cranky Natsumes fire-casting ability, or Professor Narumis control of human pheromones, everyone at the school has some sort of special talent. But what ability, if any, does Mikan possess? Mikan is going to have to rely on her courage and spunk if shes going to stay in school, or even stay alive!
