Big Order synopsis from Haruhichan:

Ten years ago, a child wished for the destruction of the world. Now, a group of people has the ability to grant their wishes depending on their power. They are called “Order User.”

Before these great people who have the power of “Order”, one person excels the most with the ability to rule and conquer the world and turn people into puppet when it is in his jurisdiction. This power belongs to Hoshimiya Eiji, who is also responsible for the destructive phenomena that happened exactly ten years ago.
