▍About Isekai Cheat Magician
The story of Isekai Cheat Magician follows two ordinary high school students, Taichi Nishimura (西村太一) and Rin Azuma (吾妻凛), who are transported to a parallel world of sword and sorcery after witnessing a mysterious beam of light.
Taichi and Rin soon realize that they both possess overwhelming magical power and physical abilities for some unknown reason, and so they begin their adventures as the world’s strongest “Cheat Magicians”.
Written by Takeru Uchida and illustrated by Nardack, the series began as a web novel on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2012. The novels were then published in print by Shufunotomo beginning in 2013; nine volumes have been published so far.
A manga adaptation by Karin Suzuragi (鈴羅木かりん) began serialization in Kadokawa Shoten’s Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in December 2016, with the fifth tankōbon released on March 2019.
