Hello,

I'm looking for a manga where the main characters attend a military or magic academy and a war eventually breaks out, involving the protagonists. The characters go about things like any normal teenagers (they fall in love, make mistakes, try harder, etc), just in a military or magic academy. The closest thing I've read in manga is Freezing. Other more well-known examples would be the Harry Potter series.

Political intrigue is a huge plus.

Thank you!

Even if it's not exactly a war, I strongly recommend Gunslinger Girl.

Zero no Tsukaima
Exactly as you state it:
Kids attend Magic Academy
There's a main romance couple
War breaks out (a couple times)

I preferred the anime cause it dealt with action better but the fan-service harem part was a bit excessive imo
never read the manga/novel but I heard they were better at explaining the feelings/drama around certain key war-based events.

Well~ I know you are searching for manga. But you could try out the Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn Mini-Series. It fits your requirements almost perfectly.

I think Hand x red has a magic school that goes to war, or more like is attacked and they resist...

Aphorism counts I think, it's sort of an honours school with survival elements and super powers...Also you get various classes that go against others and all sorts of other internal fights...

Blue Exorcist has a bit of war...there's certain arcs where the students fight alongside the adult exorcists...

Does Ares count? Its not a school as such, its a mercenary troop which has captains, dormitories and mandatory weapons training...with a LOT of war.

Ciel is a magic school and they fight against monsters when they get older and I thiiinnnk there's something close to war later on...theres certainly quite a few harry potter-esque magical conundrums...

Nightschool also has the magical/supernatural school with a lot of fights bettween various people and strange happenings, it hadn't gotten to war by where I've read up to but it gives off that sort of feeling like there's going to be a pretty big climax...

Mai-Hime
Juvenile Orion- Although I am not so sure about the magic part or not. More like they each have their own types of powers.
Watashi no Messiah-sama
Mahou sensei Negima!
Trinity Seven

Lots of recommendations in short time. Congrats.

Second Trinity Seven and Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei.

You may also want to check out:
Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai (magical puppetry school, war between factions)
Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou (magical school, war with ancient evil??)
Witchcraft Works (the school isn't magical, but most of the characters certainly are, war between witch factions)
Hidan no Aria (mercenary school, war on terrorism??)
Tokyo Ravens (spirit school, war with evil organization??)

Those with ?? haven't been fully-developed yet. That, or I'm not clear on it myself.

Edit: forgot about Gun x Clover

Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu. Probably the one that fits best.

I know a few more that fits... probably. But can't remember the names.

Oh and, 07 Ghost, can't remember much though.

There's also Soul Link I think that's what it's called. And Infinite Ryvius. Animes, I don't even know if there's mangas.
