(The following information is from the Shinra Bansho Choco Ikki-Kasei no Shou official site)
An armada of darkness and deception called Jashingun the Swarm of Evil rampaged across dimensions and was responsible for the destruction of numerous worlds. The Evil Swarm eventually met defeat and retribution at the hands of Möbius the Divine Archmage of Shinra and seven other legendary warriors who transcend time and space. These eight celestial heroes, together known as the Eight Deities of Shinra, gathered up the pieces of these worlds broken by the Swarm and merged them together to create a whole new realm, “Shinsekai.”
The Eight Deities purposely made Shinsekai to be in a new dimension completely separate from their own old realm, so their new world would never suffer from interdimensional interference or divine intervention from the old world.
Shinsekai is an ideal world that Möbius had long envisioned: an extremely harsh realm that has lost its divine protection, but also a place where no single person or deity can control one’s own freedom.
At present, Shinsekai is populated and ruled over by four different sentient species: the 鬼人 Kijin (“Oni”), the 魔人 Majin (“Daemons”), the 獣人 Juujin (“Beastfolk”), and the 鋼人 Koujin (“Metallics”), who are all now in the middle of a raging worldwide dispute. Yes, it seems Shinsekai has plunged into a feudal age of torment and war with apparently no end in sight….

天水晶 TENSUISHOU, Jewels from Heaven
水晶の塔 Suishou no Tou (“Crystal Tower”) is a divine castle that floats in the skies above Shinsekai. It is the dwelling place of the Goddess of the New World, 水晶天使ヒカリ Suishou Tenshi Hikari (“Hikari the Crystal Angel”). This castle of crystal is the only place where Tensuishou, or “Heaven Crystals,” are naturally created. Thought by many to have fallen from the skies, these Heaven Crystals have been found in various places across the world and are treated as valuable treasures.
