Kodoani.com – Anime adaptation of the light novel series The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World (Hyо̄ken no Majutsushi ga Sekai wo Suberu – Sekai Saikyо̄ no Majutsushi de Aru Shōnen wa, Majutsu Gakuin ni Nyūgaku Suru) released a teaser promotional video and visual teaser on Thursday. The video reveals the anime’s cast and staff:
The main members are:
Junya Enoki as Ray White
Iori Saeki as Amelia Rose
Nana Harumura as Elisa Griffith
Masahiro Takata (High-Rise Invasion, Ganbare! Odenkun) is directing the anime at Cloud Hearts, supervising the series scripts, and directing the sound. Makoto Shimojima (Kingdom) is designing the characters.
Ayumi Kojima (Studio Recess) is directing the art, and Natsumi Uchida is the chief photography officer. Natsumi Tabuchi (Aggretsuko, My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!, The Quintessential Quintuplets) is composing the music. Yokohama Animation Lab is overseeing anime production.
Arnold Magic Academy is a school for the elite… and Ray White is just an ordinary guy. In fact, he doesn’t seem to have special skills with magic, and is a bit klutz. That’s why he had nothing to do with the rumor that one of the great magicians, the Iceblade Sorcerer, was a member of the newly arrived class… right?
The anime will premiere in January.
The series launched on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let’s Become Novelists) website in October 2019. The light novel series launched in July 2020.
The manga launched on Kodansha’s Magazine Pocket website and app in June 2020. Kodansha published the manga’s eighth compiled book volume on May 9.
