The series announced the adaptation in April. Studio Cloud Hearts is animating the anime with Masahiro Takata acting as the director, scriptwriter, and sound director of the series. Makoto Shimojima is designing the characters while Saiki Tatsuhiko and Tabuchi Natsumi are composing the music. The previously announced main cast includes Junya Enoki as Ray White, Iori Saeki as Amelia Rose, and Nana Harumura as Elisa Griffith.
The anime adaptation is based on the light novel written by Nana Mikoshiba. The story was initially launched in October 2019 on the Shosetsuka ni Naro website and was later acquired by Kodansha. It was published with illustrations by Riko Korie in July 2020. A manga adaptation illustrated by Norihito Sasaki began in June 2020. Kodansha USA is licensing the manga in English and describes the first volume as:
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?
