Story

The story unfolds during the time Merlin’s 2nd and 3rd Coronation Plans were foiled.

Two exchange students traveled to Great Britain with the intention of studying abroad. While sightseeing, they decide to visit one of King Arthur’s ancient ruins. Upon arriving, they’re suddenly swallowed through a time-space distortion and hurled into the past.

Led by a pair of mysterious fairies, they ultimately pull out the sacred sword Excalibur, and become known as “Arthurs”. Their sightseeing guidebook is mistaken for the history book of the gods, “Akashic records” by Guinevere, and rumors quickly spread throughout Camelot that historians from the future have arrived.

Other Arthurs, and fairies driven by curiosity appear before the protagonists one after another. Before long, a grand tournament is set in motion. Rumor has it that, “If the future historian recognizes you as Arthur, you’ll be written down in history as the greatest hero for generations”.

The two students are filled with nothing but bewilderment.
Turning to the fairies, they ask if they can immediately return to their time, though this request was in vain.

In order to bring them to this time, the fairies exhausted all the “Sacred Blood” (Life force from other Arthurs and fairies) they had accumulated. If they hoped to return to the present, they would need to battle against other Arthurs and collect this “Sacred Blood” from scratch.

Accepting the offer from the fairies, their entry in the tournament was sealed.

Thus, the curtain rises on Britain’s grand tournament. With those who wished to be written down in history, those who wanted to return to their own time, and those joining simply out of curiosity.

Nitou Arthur
I’ve got the chance, might as well enjoy it!
CV: Arthur Lounsbery

A protagonist from this title.
An offensive orthodox fighter, not bound to a fixed style.
Counter your opponents with “Amagi Crusher”!



A male student studying abroad as a cultural exchange. While sightseeing near ancient ruins of King Arthur, he’s pulled through a time-space distortion and hurled into the past.

Led by a fairy, he removes the sacred sword Excalibur and becomes an Arthur. However, the sightseeing guidebook he was holding gets mistaken for the history book of the gods, “Akashic records”. This leads to everyone assuming he’s a “historian from the future”.

In order to return to his time, and save his childhood friend’s little brother, he enters the tournament.

Iai Arthur
I’ve made up my mind… I’ll Fight!
CV: Sumire Uesaka

A protagonist from this title.
Burst around freely with your “Freezing Glide”!



A female student studying abroad as a cultural exchange. While sightseeing near ancient ruins of King Arthur, she’s pulled through a time-space distortion and hurled into the past.

Led by a fairy, she removes the sacred sword Excalibur and becomes an Arthur. However, the sightseeing guidebook she was holding gets mistaken for the history book of the gods, “Akashic records”. This leads to everyone assuming she’s a “historian from the future”.

In order to return to her time, and save her dying brother, she enters the tournament.

Thief Arthur
I’ll leave the fist fighting to everyone else
CV: Ayane Sakura

A protagonist from “Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur“.
What she lacks in reach, she makes up for with her high speed.
Disrupt your opponents with “Wire Shot”!



She infiltrated Camelot to steal hidden treasures. However, she ended up removing the Excalibur located inside, becoming another candidate for the next ruler.

While she lacks even the smallest ounce of interest in a king’s duty, her nature is comparable to a chivalrous thief, fueling her desire to protect the populace from approaching invaders.

With her eyes set on stealing the “history book of the gods”, she enters the tournament.

View detailed movelist and combos (wiki.mizuumi.net – Thief Arthur)


Arthur -Kenjutsu no Shiro- (Blade Protector)
Castle of Swords, March!!
CV: Mamoru Miyano

A protagonist from “Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur“.
Nickname (Kensa). He’s got everything from long range projectiles, to anti-air moves.
An all-rounder character.



To become a candidate for the next ruler, he attempted to pull out the sacred sword, Excalibur. While versed in politics, and diligent to his combat training, he’s never experienced a real fight before pulling the sword.

Respecting sword skills and courteous knights, he aims to restore order to Britain and calm the internal chaos.

After hearing the new Arthur was a “historian from the future”, he enters the tournament to find out if it’s true.


Dai ni-gata Bisclavret
I’ll eat anyone who gets in my way!! Just kidding
CV: Shiori Izawa

A Knight that first appeared in “Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur“.
An extremely carefree girl with ridiculous strength!?
Capture the enemy with “Hungry Time”!



She was originally an exceptional Knight, but that strength quickly became a target of jealousy. This ultimately led to her being cursed, and transformed into a werewolf.

If she desired, she could break the curse purely with her own strength. However, breaking that curse would result in the loss of her power as a werewolf, so she’s content with the way things are now.

She decides to join the tournament after learning strong opponents await.


Zex Siegfried
Andvaranaut full power! Control function drive!
CV: Yuki Kaji

The protagonist from the cancelled title, “Deck Make Million Arthur“.
Absorb your opponent’s elements with, “Elemental Predator”!
The key to victory is how you handle elements!



An artificial hero, created by the invading empire, to combat Britain’s Arthurs. Bathed in the blood of the dragon Fafnir, his body is transformed into a vessel of magic resources.

Using the cursed gauntlet, Andvaranaut, he can control knights similar to Britain’s model round table. He could be considered a “Copy Arthur”.

Due to certain circumstances, he is currently away from the empire.
He joins the tournament with a desire to battle against Britain’s Arthurs.


Kika-gata Nimue
Target confirmed. In order to protect you, I’ll eliminate you.
CV: Yui Ogura

First appeared in “Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur“.
While her movements are slow, her abundant projectiles make it difficult for opponents to approach.



One of Merlin’s projects. By creating a fairy similar to humans, he attempted to use her as an interpreter between humans and fairies.

However, the Nimue he created was far too human-like. She was unable to communicate with fairies, nor wield her fairy abilities.

Nimue currently serves the Arthurs, but sensing an unsettling feeling from Nimaanu and Ninyuu (the two fairies serving the protagonists), she enters the tournament to investigate.


Kyomu-gata Eternal Flame
If you touch me, you won’t get off with light burns.
CV: Juri Nagatsuma

A Knight that first appeared in “Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur“.
Close in without a sound, and crumble your opponents defense with “Flame Burst”!



A knight said to possess the genes of a Dragon and the Fire God, Kagutsuchi to control two types of flames. The actual details are unknown, but she doesn’t appear to be concerned about it.

More importantly, she’s displeased with hurting anyone that gets close to her due to the flames.

She enters the tournament believing Arthur will be pleased to receive the future historian’s “Ashakic Record”.


Tokui-gata Snow White
Have you all gathered here?
CV: Sora Amamiya / Akio Otsuka (Kobito-san)

A Knight that first appeared in “Kaku-San-Sei Million Arthur“.
Crush your opponents with the overwhelming power of the “Seven Shadows”!



Her beauty is said to never perish, even in death. While she lacks the power to fight, She commands her attendants, the “Seven shadows”, in battle.

Snow White is a clone of the original, who currently sleeps in the forest. It’s believed that if the original grows up, she would become the most beautiful woman in the world. She often makes her surroundings uneasy against that beauty.

The dwarfs convince her to participate in the tournament believing, “If the future historian recognizes her beauty, it will be written down in history for eternity”.


Ikai-gata Riesz
I’m Riesz, an amazoness from Laurent! I’ll be your opponent!
CV: Mikako Komatsu

A knight created from the genes of Riesz, a protagonist in, “Seiken Densetsu 3“.
Unleash an oppressive offense with her spear’s long reach!



A knight born of Riesz’s genes. The princess of a kingdom, and the leader of an Amazoness Army.

Her memories from the original are strong. She wishes to rebuild her homeland, destroyed by an army of thieves, as well as save her kidnapped younger brother, Elliot.

Hearing a future historian holds the “Akashic records”, she believes it may tell the whereabouts of her younger brother. Acting on those thoughts, she enters the tournament.
