Sky Wizards Academy is a fantasy anime series produced by Diomedea studio and directed by Takayuki Inagaki. The show first aired on July 8, 2015, and ran for 12 episodes till September 23, 2015. The anime is an adaptation of a Japanese light novel series titled "Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan," which was written by Yū Moroboshi and illustrated by Yuka Nakajima. The series was licensed for English release by FUNimation Entertainment.

The series is set in a world where humanity has been forced to live in floating cities called "academies" after a mysterious and catastrophic event known as the "Great War." In these cities, students with magical abilities are trained to become Sky Wizards, which is an elite group of warriors that protect the homeland from the threat of the Non-Human Entities (NHEs), which are creatures that appear out of nowhere and wreak havoc.

The story follows the protagonist Kanata Age, a former ace Sky Wizard, who has been demoted to the rank of an instructor due to a mission failure in the past. Kanata is bitter and unwilling to train the new students, but he gradually starts bonding with his three students, Misora Whitale, Rico Flamel, and Lecty Eisenach. While Misora is perky and determined, Rico is a genius inventor who is always working on gadgets, and Lecty is a shy but athletic girl who struggles with magic. Together, they face challenges, develop their skills, and uncover the truth about the world they live in.

The show has a mix of action, comedy, and romance. The battles between the Sky Wizards and the NHEs provide an adrenaline rush to the viewers, and the unique magical abilities of the characters make the fights exciting and unpredictable. The show uses a system called "Magic Integration System" (MIS) to explain how the characters fly and use magic, which makes the fights more strategic and engaging. The gadgets that Rico creates also add a steampunk flavor to the show and allow for creative problem-solving.

The comedy elements in the show come from the interactions between the characters. Kanata's sarcastic comments and Misora's upbeat personality make for hilarious moments, and the three students' dynamic adds a slice-of-life aspect to the show. The show also has a bit of a romantic aspect, with hints of a love triangle between Kanata, Misora, and Lecty, which adds a sense of tension and drama to the plot.

One of the significant themes of the show is the idea of redemption. Kanata is haunted by his past failures, which make him cynical and detached from his students. Through the show, Kanata learns to let go of his past and find a purpose in teaching the new generation of Sky Wizards. Similarly, Misora and Lecty struggle with their insecurities and past traumas but find strength through their bond with Kanata and their fellow students.

The world-building in the show is also noteworthy. The floating academies and the threat of the NHEs create an intriguing and mysterious backdrop to the plot. The show hints at a greater conspiracy behind the formation of the academies and the true nature of the NHEs, which keeps the viewers engaged and wanting more.

The animation in the show is average and doesn't stand out compared to other anime of its time. The character designs are simple, and the backgrounds lack detail. However, the show compensates for it with its action scenes, which are well choreographed and exciting to watch.

Overall, Sky Wizards Academy is an enjoyable and engaging anime that combines action, comedy, and romance into a well-crafted story. While the animation is average, the show's unique magical system, character bonds, and world-building make it a must-watch for anyone who enjoys fantasy anime.

Sky Wizards Academy is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on July 9, 2015.
