The official Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei Twitter account (The Irregular at Magic High School by Tsutomu Satou) dedicated to the light novel series announced on Friday it will be getting two sequels. The first sequel, titled Zoku・Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei Magian Company (Sequel・The Irregular at Magic High School Magian Company), will debut around fall of this year. The story follows Tatsuya and the others who have graduated from high school.
Originally, Yen Press published the light novel series in English, and it describes the story:
The year is 2095. Magic has been tamed as another form of technology, and the practice of magic is meow a rigorous discipline. Brother and sister Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are just about to start their first year at the renowned First Magic High School of Japan. But the school’s ironclad rules mean that the brilliant Miyuki enters the prestigious Course 1, while her older brother, Tatsuya, is relegated to Course 2–and that’s just the beginning of their troubles!– Yen Press
Here’s the original tweet:
The Irregular at Magic High School light novel series will eventually end on the 32nd volume, subtitled “Sacrifice-hen/Sotsugyō-hen” (Sacrifice/Graduation Arc), on September 10th.
Satou originally released the light novels in 2008. Both Satou and Kadokawa’s Dengeki Bunko light novel label published the 31st novel volume on April 10th, and Yen Press published the 15th volume in English on April 7th. Yen Press also released the Yu Mori’s The Honor Student at Magic High School spinoff manga. The novel series has inspired multiple manga from different authors, based on different arcs of the novels.
The novel series also inspired a 26-episode television anime that debuted in April of 2014, directed by Manabu Ono at Madhouse. Aniplex of America licensed the anime and released it on home video in 2015. Then, Funimation began picking up the season in April. The novels also inspired the The Irregular at magic high school The Movie: The Girl Who Summons the Stars anime film, which opened in Japan during June of 2017. Aniplex of America screened the film in theaters in the United States and released it on home video.
The anime will have a second season titled Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei: Raihōsha-hen (The Irregular at Magic High School: Visitor Arc), which was originally scheduled to premiere in July, but delayed to October due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
