In a time and place where one's soul can be morphed into a weapon, there are modern-day magicians called Mage-Knights. Although Kurogane Ikki is a student at an institution that trains Mage-Knights, he has no particular talent in magic and is labeled the "Failure Knight" or "Worst One." Getting way less than average marks in the scorings, he was forced to repeat a year. But with the arrival of a new head of the institution, a new rule was created: knights whose abilities are compatible, as decided by the board, must share rooms and attend practice and training together throughout their school years to bring up their abilities to the max. It is a rule to implement the absolute verdict of ability.

Ikki's roommate, Stella Vermillion, turns out to be a princess of another foreign country. Stella is a Rank A knight: the type of genius in magic who only appears once a decade. When Ikki walked in on her while she was changing her clothes, it caused a huge misunderstanding, which eventually ended up in a duel between the two of them. The punishment for the losing side is Eternal Submission to the winning side.

Forced to live the same room and practice magic together throughout all their school years, how will Stella and Ikki's relationship evolve?

If you want to waste your time for it to end right before the main tournament arc this is the manga for you! All you need to know is that it is a LN adaptation that they decided to stop making the manga for.

I was enjoying it since I have the unfortunate joy of liking trashy isekai but the story was just hitting stride and I guess they decided that was how they would pull the fans to the LN.

This was the first time I have seen this specific premise but otherwise the characters are pretty generic both looks and personality wise.

I should have read the comments in advance before starting the manga. Yes, the manga is ongoing, as is the anime. It contains about 5-6 more episodes than the anime but ends before the next arc begins. To find out more, you have to read the novel for better or for worse.

If you don't feel like it, you should just watch the anime, switch to the novel, or leave it altogether. The manga had hardly any great changes in the process.
However, he had better humor than the anime, as well as the implementation of some scenes. In the anime adaptation, these were read more

School Life battle style storyline revolving around the schools ‘weakest’ mage knight and his efforts to find a means to rise to the top of his class and achieve a win at school tourney which would allow him to graduate after much difficulty.
Couple this with a well-paced romance angle and we have an interesting take on a common theme.

Story: 7

The story here is nothing too complicated but it is well paced, well-built and interesting. We basically follow our hero Ikki Kurogane as he finally is given an opportunity to perform and compete to achieve Mage Knight status despite the resistance and interference of his read more

I know it's been a really long time since this manga was produced but holy sht I knew I was in for a cringefest starting from chapter 1. The amount of stereotypical character traits is too much. Reading it after all these years made me realize how storytelling had improved in today's standards.

I found a clip from the anime that looked really cool so I decided to give the manga a read but it's one of those instances wherein the anime is far better than the images in manga. If anything the anime is over-the-top while the manga is more of a grounded action sequence.
