The Discovery of Magic
When Minami was in middle school, he was still being made fun of - even if it was not openly done. It was during this time that he met Kamioka Saya. Kamioka was from a different elementary school and hence, did not know much about Minami. It was Kamioka who did not laugh at Minami's faith in his past life. She also gave him the idea of using magic to discover whether his previous birth was real or not.
One evening, Minami saw Kamioka with a swollen face. On being questioned, she told him that she had gotten into a fight with the third years in her basketball club. She explained how she felt extremely mad at first but then she realised that she was not a kid and had to learn how to handle such situations.
"If there is a proper way for middle schoolers to behave, I have to learn it."" - Kamioka Saya, Chapter 00 , Volume 1
The next day, Minami ended up in a situation that was similar to Kamioka's. The third year students cornered him in the toilet and began to bully him. In his rage, he plucked fresh hair and was prepared to use magic. Suddenly, he remembered Kamioka's words from earlier and stopped himself. He quickly locked himself behind a closet door and decided to improvise. He fought off the third years with a hose pipe and a mop.
When the lookout, who heard the yells from inside the toilet, came in, he faced Minami with a knife. It was at that moment when Minami found out that one strand of Kamioka's hair had gotten stuck on the button of his coat the previous day and was still stuck on it. He used magic with that hair and created a flash of blinding light to escape.
