Munou na Nana Synopsis

It is the year 20XX. The earth was besieged by self-proclaimed monsters as "enemies of humanity". To counter this threat, special schools have been set up to train young people with exceptional skills.

These people, known as "talents", have abilities that contradict the laws of reality and are an outlier among them, a person who has been sent to one of these schools but has no special abilities. This is how the story of our protagonist begins, who, instead of using brute force, uses her intelligence and manipulation skills to defeat her enemies.
