Anime News The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World

Fantasy Novel ‘The Iceblade Sorcerer’ to Receive an Anime in 2023

Being a gifted child or the chosen one in anime means never getting to live a normal life, and Ray White has had enough of that. Even though he tries to live as an ordinary person, he can’t escape his fate, and soon The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World.

The novel series is very underrated, which is a shame given how thrilling the story is. Keeping this in mind, the franchise is adapting it as an anime to reach the right audience.

As revealed in its latest teaser, ‘The Iceblade Sorcerer Shall Rule the World’ anime is slated for a January 2023 debut.

The teaser shows Ray going through a traumatic event during a war where he lost someone close to him. A few years later, he enrolls at the Arnold Academy of Magic to restart his life as an ordinary guy.

It turns out that school wasn’t very kind to him either, as people looked down on him and mocked him for being from a poor background. Despite such a social setback, he managed to befriend the prideful yet kind Amelia, the shy book nerd Elisa, and muscle-brain Evy.

While these were minor inconveniences, the trailer shows evil forces at work who are planning to wreak havoc. They can obviously try that, but I can’t imagine the dreadful punishment they’ll get for disrupting Ray’s peaceful life.

The franchise also dropped a new key visual featuring Ray, Elisa, and Amelia in battle mode.
