The anime series is based on the adventure fantasy manga written by Danmachi‘s Fujino Omori and illustrated by Toshi Aoi, which has been serialized in Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shonen Magazine since December 9, 2020. Nine tankobon volumes have been released as of February 2024. Kodansha USA releases the manga in English after licensing it in 2021. 

Crunchyroll will stream Wistoria: Wand and Sword worldwide, outside of Japan. It describes the synopsis of the series as: 

A hard-working boy named Will enters a magic academy in hopes of becoming a great sorcerer. Unfortunately, there’s a fatal flaw in his plan: he lacks the ability to use magic. Amid the cold stares of his classmates and instructors, Will feels discouraged at times, but he presses forward with unwavering determination. He can’t use a wand, but he can wield a sword in his battle to reach the top of a magic-dominated world. He just needs to believe in his own unique strengths and remember the promise he made with someone precious to him…
