Kodansha USA Publishing licensed the manga and describes the story as follows:
The Arnold Academy of Magic 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?
The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World is written by Nana Mikoshiba. It first appeared on the user-generated publishing website Shousetsuka ni Narou! (Let’s Become Novelists!) on October 25, 2019. The series was later acquired by Kodansha, who began publishing the novels with illustrations by Riko Korie on July 2, 2020 under their Kodansha Ranobe Bunko imprint.
