Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan ((くう)(せん)()(どう)()(こう)()(せい)(きょう)(かん), lit "The Instructor of Aerial Combat Wizard Candidates"), or Sky Wizards Academy in English Dub, is the manga adaptation of the light novel series.

It is being illustrated by Arisu Shidō and written by Moroboshi Yū. The original raw was published in July 26, 2014 and the translation was released on December 10, 2014.


The story is set in a world where humanity, driven off the land by the threat of magical armored insects, now live in aerial floating cities. Thus wizards - aerial combat mages who fight the insects with magical powers - came into being. Kanata Age is a young man who lives on the floating wizard academy city of "Mistgun".

He was once celebrated as the "Black Master Swordsman," the elite ace of the S128 special team. However, he is now despised as the "traitor of the special team." One day, he is assigned as the instructor of E601, a team that has suffered 10 consecutive defeats. E601 has three girls - Misora Whitale, Lecty Eisenach, and Rico Flamel - with one or two peculiar quirks.

Differences between manga and anime:

  • In the anime, Yuri encounters Kanata in a stairway and complains about his traitorous attitude, before he’s appointed as the instructor of E601 (Episode 01). In the manga, she does so while sitting in an outdoor café’ with him and Chloe, after his appointment as the instructor (Chapter 03).
  • In the anime, Lecty tells Kanata about her problems when she is with Misora, after her maid training in the evening. In the manga, she tells him while shopping for the maid dress. Also, Misora doesn’t participate in the maid training in manga but she still encourages Lecty. In the manga, during the ice-cream scene only Misora was with Kanata unlike anime where both Misora and Lecty were there with him.
  • In the anime, Kanata massaged only Rico’s shoulders while she was fully dressed in school uniform after shuffle training. In manga, he massages her feet and legs while she’s wearing only a white shirt.
  • In manga, Real is first introduced when Freon takes S128 to Alchemists wing, unlike anime where he was introduced when he bumped into Yuri and fell in love with her at first sight.
