Toaru Majutsu no Index Wiki

School District 9 (第九学区 Dai Kyū Gakku?) is a school district found inside the western parts of Academy City. The district's focus is for schools related to industrial and fine arts.[1]


Theatre Performance

A performance of commedia dell'arte at a District 9 theatre.

Schools related to arts and crafts are concentrated in the district. Everything that falls in the field of performing arts uses hologram technology instead of traditional methods.[1]

The district also has a regulation that is unique to it. In the district, hierarchy based on seniority which is a staple in Japanese society is completely abolished, and is instead, the hierarchical structure of the district is based on pure ability alone.[1]

The district also contains parks where, according to Saten Ruiko, if one asks for a portrait in one of them, one could get scouted as a model. The veracity of the rumor is unconfirmed.[2]
