Sisti is a magic-user in training who attends a prestigious magical academy where she hopes to be trained by the best of the best. However, when her instructor suddenly retires, his replacement is anything but what Sisti had hoped for—idle, incompetent, and always late! Can Sisti still learn magic and unravel the secrets of the mysterious Sky Castle with such a terrible teacher as her guide?
Why do I want this series?
A magic school story, with some cliches, yet with great comedy and very likeable characters. Even if rushed, the anime was quite fun. There are fan translations for some of the volumes, but I would like to read it officially.
Would definitely be a great addition to the library, especially after anime had botched the second half so badly.
Loved the first half of the anime.
The MC is a genius and different from many others.
Also the scenes with Sistine being tsuntsun were lovely.
I feel like the second half didn't express the right feelings in the right way and I would like to read the original to change my mind.

I would love to see this get licensed. I really enjoyed the characters in the anime, and I want to find out what happens to them in the LNs.

Great plot, fun characters, and the mc is the type that I like the most. Not beta, relaxed, and a hidden badass (hth combat expertise is the best for an mc to have :P). Would love to see this get picked up.

A witty, clever protagonist and colorful characters with a variety of personalities........
This is definitely something I'd like to see licensed
I’m really surprised no one has released this in English yet. Anyone know if there are licensing challenges related?
@the-green-death the main challenges would be "but it's not isekai, noone will buy it" and "it has more than 10 volumes, we can't risk it".
@novurdim If its not isekai that's all the more reason for them to pick it up. The majority of J-Novel Club's licenses are Isekai. It's better to have some variety than none at all.
This series is still fantasy though, which sells. I don't think it would sell badly either, so I presume it has more to do with the publisher.
That being said, from J-NC we only have 2 Kadokawa series so far, so I'm curious about what would be next batch.
This series is still fantasy though, which sells.
From what I heard SukaSuka isn't selling all that well so I'm not so sure about that. Though maybe suka is just too high-quality for this market.
I liked the anime and manga so getting to read the LN would be awesome.
