I Am ODST: Memoirs of a Student-Soldier is a fan fiction authored by Chris Ganale, as part of the Project Arashi series of works. It follows the events that the character Yuuna Akashi partakes in, starting with the incident in Kyoto and focuses on her romantic and military adventures, eventually leading to her partnership with Hotaru Kobayashi and her joining of Cleric Team.
Unlike all of the other works in the Project Arashi collection, I Am ODST is told in first person.
The story opens in the trip to Kyoto and covers Yuuna's crush on Makie Sasaki. Before her gentle rejection from the other girl can weight too heavily on her mind, however, people arrive to kidnap Konoka Konoe. Yuuna, along with the help of Hotaru and other students, helped fend off the kidnappers. Yuuna's memory is erased afterwards, however, to keep the existence of magic a secret.
Of the reviews with notable content, the story seems to be favored by readers.
