High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World Manga Enters Final Arc

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Yen Press publishes manga, original light novels in English

This year's 12th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine revealed on Friday that Kōtarō Yamada's manga adaptation of Riku Misora's High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World light novel is entering its final arc. The manga's 12th compiled book volume will ship on June 24.

Yen Press publishes both the manga and the light novels in English, and it describes the manga:

In Japan, there are seven superhuman highschoolers who are world-class geniuses in various fields ranging from governance to economics and beyond. On one fateful day, these seven wind up in a plane accident and wake up only to find themselves in another world.

Finding themselves in a foreign place where magic and beast-people are real, they immediately proceed to panic-or at least that's what would've happened if they were some run of the mill students!!

If anything, these seven are actually using their talents to do absolutely ludicrous things so they can go home...

"Let's take it easy, because if we really let loose, I'm pretty sure we'll end up destroying this world."

The manga adaptation launched in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in May 2016. Square Enix published the 11th volume in December 2020. Yen Press published the ninth volume in December 2020.

Misora launched the novel series with illustrations by Sacraneco in 2015. SB Creative's GA Bunko label published the novel series' 10th volume in February 2020. Yen Press published the third volume on January 19.

The novels inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in October 2019. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and also aired an English dub.
