Her nickname is Gracie, a witch that makes every effort to get the necessary budget and recruit group members to create the "Koukuu Mahou Ongakutai" ("Air Force Magical Idols Band"), a team of witches who cannot join the fight for several reasons.
It is the latest work of a series that depicts magical girls, mecha, and military forces while featuring new changes regarding the characters and the setting used so far. The story revolves around "witches who do not fight".
"Allied Air Force Magical Idols Luminous Witches", a unique air wing that brings a moment of peace and comfort to those who fight against the Neuroi and those who have been displaced from home, while traveling around the world. An unexpected group of witches that, unlike the Joint Fighter Wings which protect people by using the brutal force and fighting, makes everyone's smile with "songs and music".
Information have been released about Gracie, who was a Major in the Liberion Army. During her active service as a witch, she participated in many battles, including Dunkirk's retreat and the Battle of Britain as a member of the Liberion Volunteer Army.
After retiring as a witch, she started working on unfamiliar desk work but then, accompanied by the belief that music can save people, she made every effort to get the necessary budget and recruit group members to create the "Koukuu Mahou Ongakutai" ("Air Force Magical Idols Band"), a team of witches who cannot join the fight for several reasons. She is now in charge as captain/creator of the "Allied Air Force Magical Idols Luminous Witches".
