The Music Kingdom contains musical treasures called Sound Jewels, which together produce the "Song of Blessings." The Sound Jewels are stolen by Maou, who corrupts them into Negative Jewels.

In the human world, Kanon Ichinose and Fuuka Tachibana audition to become part of a new idol group called miracle² with Mai Kanzaki, which was also partially held to recruit Idol Warriors to help Mai recover the Sound Jewels.
