A manga adaptation by Anajiro has been running on Futabasha’s Gaugau Monster website since July 12, 2019. Ten tankobon volumes have been released as of January 2024. Happinet confirmed that the anime will adapt the manga’s storyline instead of the original light novels. 

Happinet describes the synopsis of The Strongest Magician in the Demon Lord’s Army was a Human as:

Ike is known as “the strongest magician in the demon king’s army” and is single-handedly conquering fortresses. The way he mows down the enemies with his immense magic truly makes him a “monster” feared by both allies and foes alike. However, he has a secret that he cannot tell other demons. “I’m actually human.”
