Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōka (空戦魔導士候補生の教官, lit. The Instructor of Aerial Combat Wizard Candidates) is a light novel written by Yū Moroboshi and the art were illustrated by Mikihiro Amami. The manga is illustrated by Alice Sid. A anime adaptation is being produced by Diomedea, directed by Takayuki Inagaki.
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 ten consecutive defeats. E601 has three girls—Misora Whitale, Lecty Eisenach, and Rico Flamel—with one or two peculiar quirks.
