Sistine is happy with her life the way it is, especially her academic life. She is studying magic and has a good tutor. That is, until he retires and a substitute teacher takes over his classes. Sistine soon has to realize that her new teacher is a lazy bastard and doesn't plan on teaching them anything, which stands in the way of her life-goal to find the sky castle. And how did that strange teacher end up getting the job anyway, since her past teacher would never have picked him as his substitute if he new he was that incompetent.


Roku de Nashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Record is based on a light novel series written by Taro Hitsuji with illustrations by Kurone Mishima. The series was published via Fujimi Shobo’s Fantasia Bunko and eight volumes are currently available. A collection of short stories entitled Roku de Nashi Majutsu Koushi to Memory Record  went on sale on from 19 March 2016. A second volume of short stories will be available from 20 April 2017. There is a manga adaptation, with art by Aosa Tsunemi, serialized in Kadokawa’s Monthly Shonen Ace. There are five chapters of the manga series currently available.
