After a long and good run, the well-loved novel series The Irregular at Magic High School is set to come to an end soon: the official Twitter account of the series has announced that the novels will end on the 32nd volume. Entitled “Sacrifice-hen/Sotsugou-hen” (Sacrifice/Graduation Arc), the 32nd and final volume will be shipped out this September 10.
The English license for the light novels is held by Yen Press, who describes the series’ story as such:
“The year is 2095. Magic has been tamed as another form of technology, and the practice of magic is now a rigorous discipline. Brother and sister Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are just about to start their first year at the renowned First Magic High School of Japan. But the school’s ironclad rules mean that the brilliant Miyuki enters the prestigious Course 1, while her older brother, Tatsuya, is relegated to Course 2—and that’s just the beginning of their troubles!”
A second season has been previously announced for the series and is set to adapt the Visitor arc (Raihousha-hen) or volumes 9-11 of the light novel series by Tsutomu Satou. Season 2 was originally set for a July premiere but was moved to October because of the current coronavirus pandemic.
Risako Yoshida, who directed the franchise’s movie The Girl Who Summons the Stars, is set to direct the second season. Character design for the second season is credited to Kana Ishida, with Taku Iwasaka returning to compose the series’ music. The second season will be produced by 8-bit, who also produced the movie. The first season was produced by Madhouse.
Main cast members Yuichi Nakamura (Tatsuya Shiba), Saori Hayami (Miyuki Shiba), and Yoko Hikasa (Angelina Kudou Shields) are set to return to the series.
Irregular at magic high school is a light novel series written by Tsutomu Satou and was published online from October 2008 to March 2011. A manga adaptation drawn by Majiko! was launched in December 2015 and ended on June 2018. In April 2014, Madhouse premiered a 26-episode TV anime adaptation of the series directed by Manabu Ono. A film adaptation entitled Irregular at Magic High School The Movie: The Girl Who Summons the Stars premiered in Japan last June 2017.
