The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World is a Japanese light novel series written by Nana Mikoshiba and illustrated by Riko Korie. It has been published online via the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō since October 2019. Kodansha Comics has licensed a manga adaptation.
The story takes place in the Arnold Academy of Magic, which 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?
