Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan (Sky Wizards Academy) is a magical action light novel series written by Yuu Moroboshi and illustrated by Mikihiro Amami. The series began in mid 2013 being published by Kadokawa’s Fujimi Shobo imprint. To date a total of 6 volumes have been compiled and released in Japan. A manga adaptation of the series began last year in Media Factory’s Monthly Comic Alive magazine.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
The story is set in a world where humanity, driven off the land by the threat of magical armored insects, now live in aerial floating cities. Thus wizards—aerial combat mages who fight the insects with magical powers—came into being.
Kanata Age is a young man who lives on the floating wizard academy city of “Misutogan.” He was once celebrated as the “Black Master Swordsman,” the elite ace of the S128 special team; however, he is now despised as the “traitor of the special team.” One day, he is assigned as the instructor of E601, a team that has suffered ten consecutive defeats. E601 has three girls—Misora Whitale, Lecty Eisenach, and Rico Flamel—with one or two peculiar quirks.
The Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan anime will start airing from Thursday, July 9th at 12:30am JST, during the Summer 2015 anime season. Further information may be revealed very soon.
