The Storylines of The Iceblade Sorcerer
The Iceblade Sorcerer is an adaptation of Nana Mikoshiba’s original light novel series. It tells the tale of the Iceblade Magician, one of the continent’s most potent sorcerers and the person who, with overpowering magic and swordsmanship, helped his nation win the war three years prior.
However, very few people are aware of Ray White, the Iceblade magician’s real name, or his age.
Ray enrolls at Arnold Academy, a school for elite magicians, with the hope of leading a normal life for a change after being burdened with the responsibility of keeping his identity a secret, the trauma of his past battles that he cannot seem to get over, and the duty of tracking down a spy with murky motives.
Ray makes friends with the kind Amelia Rose, the shy and bookish Elisa Griffith, and the athletic Evy to form an unlikely team that he must defend — even if it means facing his traumatic past.
This is done in the midst of being shunned for being the only commoner in a school full of arrogant nobles.
The Iceblade Sorcerer Expected Release Date
On January 5, 2023, The Iceblade Sorcerer will be released in Japan, and on the same day, both the dub and English subtitles will be made accessible for viewing on Crunchyroll. Fans may learn more about some of the important people Ray develops friendships with on the TBS Animation channel on YouTube, including Amelia Rose, Elisa Griffith, and Rebecca Bradley.
Fans can anticipate a high-quality anime that can satisfy the high fantasy, non-isekai itch this winter 2023 thanks to the series’ production by Cloud Heart Studio and its cast of talented voice actors, which includes Junya Enoki, Nana Harumura, Iori Saeki, and Yuuichirou Umehara as Ray White, Elisa Griffith, Amelia Rose, and Evy Armstrong, respectively.
