The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World is set to premiere sometime in January 2023. It is based on the light novels written by Nana Mikoshiba and illustrated by Riko Korie. The book series began in 2020, a year after the story began publication as a web novel on Shousetsuka ni Narou. A manga adaptation by Sasaki Nobuhito began the same year.
Both the light novels and manga are published by Kodansha, with the former published under the Kodansha Light Novel Bunko label. The sixth volume of the light novels will be released on October 3 this year.
Kodansha describes the manga as:
The Arnold Academy of Magic is a school for the elite…and Ray White is just your ordinary guy. In fact, he doesn’t seem particularly skilled with magic at all, and is a bit of a klutz. Which is why he has nothing to do with the rumor that one of the great magicians, the Iceblade Sorcerer, is a member of the incoming class…right?
