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!

    • Some people got a copy a week or two ago, as sometimes happens with these releases. I’m personally not interested in this series, but who knows, I may pick it up on a whim one day. (Though that’d be easier if there was an ebook version. Maybe that’ll come later.)

  1. Uh. Does anyone know where I can buy the full series in English? I’ve been looking for it for ages. I want to buy the light novel series with the money I get for my birthday, lol, but I can only find the first and second books in English. I mean, if that’s the only one that’s been published then where can I read the entire series? I know there’s a manga, The Honors Student at Magic High School, but it’s in Miyuki’s point of view, and I kind of wanted to read it in Tatsuya’s point of view.

    • So far only the first volume of the light novel series is available, and I have included links to some places up above where you can buy it online (Amazon, B&N, BookDepository). The second volume is planned to release August 23rd, followed by volume 3 in December. There will probably be three or four volumes published a year until we’re caught up to the latest Japanese release.
