The spinoff FINAL FANTASY XIV manga where characters enjoy life at school, FINAL FANTASY XIV: Eorzea Academy, is now available on Manga UP! Chapter 1 is free to read right now and a new portion of the story will be added each week!

This special page not only introduces the manga, but includes sample pages for your reading pleasure!

What is FINAL FANTASY XIV: Eorzea Academy?


Alisaie is a high school student attending Eorzea Academy, an exclusive institution created by the merger of former rival schools the Academy of Light and the Academy of Darkness. However, frequent quarrels between the students prove that a bitter divide remains between the Class of Light and the Class of Darkness. Worried about the ongoing conflict, headmistress Tataru decides it's time for some bold solutions to raise morale. Let the school games begin!

First of all, it’s odd that Tataru is the headmistress, but with Alisaie and Alphinaud as the stars and a supporting cast of other vibrant personalities from FFXIV, there’s no end to the shenanigans...! On top of that, there are plenty of events unique to school life such as field days, summer break and school festivals!

There are also appearances of well-known (notorious?) scenes from FFXIV! Keep your eyes peeled for them within the manga.

Main Characters

Students of the Class of Light

Includes Alisaie, Alphinaud, Estinien, G'raha Tia and Krile. (Yes, Estinien is 32 in the game...but let’s not nitpick over the details)

Students of the Class of Darkness

Includes Zenos, Asahi and Yotsuyu. Certainly a charismatic group of students!


Other than headmistress Tataru, Thancred, Y'shtola, Urianger and Emet-Selch appear as instructors.

A number of other FFXIV characters also appear, so if that piques your interest please check it out on Manga UP!
