The manga adaptation of the novel is illustrated by Norihito Sasaki and has been serialized on Kodansha’s free manga app Magazine pocket since June 2020, with the English edition published by United States. Kodansha USA describes the story as such:
The Arnold Academy of Magic is a school for the elite… and Ray White is just an ordinary guy. In fact, he doesn’t seem to have any magic skills at all and is a bit clumsy. That’s why it has nothing to do with the rumor that one of the great magicians, the Iceblade Sorcerer, is a member of the incoming class… does it?
