The Irregular at Magic High School Light Novels Head Toward 'Climax'

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko label lists Tsutomu Satou's 25th The Irregular at Magic High School light novel volume, and reports that the story is heading toward the climax. The volume ships on April 10.

Satou launched the light novel series with illustrations by Kana Ishida (Aquarion Evol character designs) in 2008.

Yen Press licensed the novel series and Yu Mori's spinoff manga The Honor Student at Magic High School, which is ongoing in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh. Kadokawa published the 24th volume (seen right) of the novels on March 10.

The novel series inspired a 26-episode television anime adaptation that debuted in April 2014, directed by Manabu Ono at Madhouse. Aniplex of America licensed the anime and released it on home video in 2015. It also inspired the The irregular at magic high school The Movie: The Girl Who Summons the Stars anime film, which opened in Japan last June. Aniplex of America screened the film in theaters in the United States.

The novel series has also inspired numerous manga adaptations. Yuzuki N Dash will launch the latest of these manga adaptations in Kadokawa's Dengeki Bunko Magazine in April.
