    From the same author of Alderamin on the sky, a new series named Nanatsu no maken ga shihai. It has even ranked first on the Kono light novel ga Sugoi! 2020 bunkobon list.

    Spring. In the prestigious magic school of Kimberly, this year ushers in another wave of new students. Clothed in black robes with a white cane and sword strapped to the hip, within his chest he hides pride and a mission.

    As the sakura flutter in full bloom, the budding magicians are welcomed by a parade of magic creatures. However, they were allowed only a moment of leisure. An underground labyrinth that swallows up students on whim, upperclassmen that resemble monsters, and a faction that opposes human rights for demi-humans. While trying to survive in an ominous and terrifying place with his companions, Oliver forms a connection with a single girl with a Japanese sword strapped to her hip, the samurai girl Nanao. The story where their two swords clash, begins now.

    The series has reached upto 5 volumes in Japan. However, the fan translations don't even cover vol 1. It has a manga adaptation and both the light novel and the manga are being translated by fan communities right now.

    Would really like to see, this licensed. The theme and illustrations look pretty interesting. :)
