Ability (能力 Nouryoku) is a system which is established in Mikagura Academy.
- Besides school uniforms, dormitories, points, and clubs, students will also be given an ability and enhanced reflexes by the time they have enrolled in the Academy. An ability can be obtained in two ways; either awakened in a mean time or taught by an upperclassman. However, the latter way has a restriction, which is that once the student gets their ability, it won't go further from the senior who has taught it to them.
- In order to activate their ability, students need an item as a media to project it. However, there are also some special students who don't need any item to activate it. A student's ability and item are usually, but not always, related to the club that they joined. If students also wish to improve their ability, they should bring a key, treating their power as something fun. Although the student's ability is almost always used in battle, it can also be used in everyday life to a lesser extent. It is also noted that whenever an ability is being activated, one's computer terminal will start blinking and show the name of said ability.
- Since their ability is not something that comes naturally and is merely a system in the Academy, the memory of the ability as well as the ability itself will vanish once students graduate from the Academy. However, since everyone enrolled to Mikagura Academy are naturally adapting to their abilities, even if their ability is erased their natural talent will have improved subconsciously during their time at the Academy. Hence, there are many Mikagura alumnus who would go on to become artists or scholars in society. Abilities can also be erased if students go outside the Academy, but with special authorization, one can still keep their ability without having their memory of it erased.
