The young woman introduces herself as Lesti and tells her where they are at which is Alandrian Central Magic Academy. She begins readjusts to her new life and goes on a journey with Lesti.

This was so interestingly different and loved reading this light novel. A vastly different premise and plot than I am used to personally, but this was great. I would have preferred to read the manga version, but this sufficed for sure. The writing was great, and the characters were interesting. Interactions felt natural and the lore felt genuine. Can’t wait to find the manga to add to my collection, however.

Louise is a mage wanting to summon her familiar as the first test of becoming a mage. When she summons a mage, it’s a human as her familiar by the name of Saito. Saito, being equally confused, is distraught about how he ended up in the realm of magic and as this girl’s familiar. Saito and Louise begin to adjust to each other and the challenges they will come across together. Sticking to each other, they are partners in crime for what life puts in front of them. They slowly fall for each other.

This was made into an anime that I watched first then sought out for the manga version. I love this manga for how weird it goes, and it goes in a direction that makes the reader question what they are reading. This was hilarious and weird. I love this manga and wished it was longer.
