Thumbs up Magdala de Nemure (マグダラで眠れ ; May Your Soul Rest in Magdala)

Magdala de Nemure (マグダラで眠れ)



From the creator of Spice and Wolf comes his new work May Your Soul Rest in Magdala.

Synposis: It is a world where order is maintained by three great factions, the Church which bears the greatest authority, the Order of Clausius possessing influence on par with the Church, immense assets and military might, and lastly the Guild of Commerce, an association of merchants and artisans alike.
The alchemist Kusler who was captured and imprisoned because he committed the offense of trying to burn a saint's bones, sold his skills and talents to the Order of Clausius. Together with an old friend, Welland, they were then dispatched towards the town of Grubetti which was close to the front lines.
And then at a workshop in Grubetti which boasted advanced equipment due to being near the front lines, Kusler met the devout nun Urle Fenesis who had introduced herself as a "watchdog".

Guessing the translation was from ping since this is one out of his billion on-going projects .

Light Novels: 3 - ongoing
Manga: 1 ch - ongoing

(This is from the author from spice and wolf so expect some pretty deep stuff and alchemy!)

Preview mode: (And who said that this story is about economics? It's alchemy...)

Spoiler for Prologue:


I've planned updates, one chapter a month. There are 5 chapters, one prologue, epilogue and afterword in each volume. While I am also looking for translators willing to work on this series, it seems that I'll be the only one working on 4 series at a little fansub group (which Magdala will be under) and another 3 series on BT exclusively. (Certainly not a billion projects)

The story is about alchemy(mostly mettalurgy), but there is also a little bit of economy in the story(in much lesser degree than spice and wolf though) in how an alchemist who's considered as heretic can survive in the book era. The story is very interesting, and Kusra(and Welland) are a very good protagonist(better than Lawrence IMO). Fenesis is also a good heroine, although I still like Holo more.

Finally read the first volume. Interesting story so far, the three main characters are promising, especially Kusra. There's a lot of description of the political situation of the city where they live, as well as their relation with the dominating faith around there, so there isn't that much thing happening in it compared to most novels. Still, this is a good start for the story. I liked the last part of it as well, and the way things were temporarily solved.
Considering the slow pace of the story, at this rate Magdala will probably be quite a long story just like S&W was; but it isn't boring so the slow pace isn't really a problem.
I guess you could say that this LN is almost the exact opposite of what is Rokka no yuusha, even though both are good read so far

Ah finally, someone posted in the thread so I'll comment on the next two volumes that i read one month and half ago.

I have to say that I'm quite satisfied with the way the four main characters are evolving so far. The story is still really slow, however the cliffhanger at the end of the 3rd volume is promising on that point; and the surprise about what Fenesis did just before that is really promising for the development of that character for the remaining part of the show. As I thought, Fenesis is a character who started out as an almost blank sheet of paper, with nothing written on it. But that's precisely because of this that you can expect Fenesis to evolve a lot more than anyone else in the story. It's still too soon to say anything, but with the 4th volume Magdala de Nemure has the potential to really become one of my favorite LN, and with enough time Fenesis has the potential to become one of my favorite female character. Kuusler is still looking good so far. I also like the fact that he's not always winning.

With that said, I'm really looking forward to the next few volumes, which will decide for me how good is this story, hoping to not be disappointed after such a promising start.
I'll get my hand on the 4th volume in December. I wonder how that cliffhanger will turn out. This may change greatly the remaining part of the story depending on how this problem will be solved, making the volumes 1 to 3 nothing more than a long prologue.

I'd say that as long as I haven't read the whole 17 volumes of S&W I don't know what is a worthy successor in this case, and that with the volumes 1 to 3 it's still to early to properly evaluate the value of this title. It is promising, sure. it has likable characters and is pretty original as a story so far as well. Can't say more with just those volumes though.

Now this is a very interesting story - just my cup of tea. Very much like Spice and Wolf, to be sure. I first came across it through the manga medium (ch 5 was released a few days ago), and have been enjoying it quite a bit. Am very glad a thread dedicated to it was already made! ^^

I'm still not sold on Fenesis, though that's probably because I can't help but compare her to Holo.

Very impressive how alchemy is being slightly more accurately described as early science instead of some magic like how it is normally misconceived.

I read the manga (cant find light novel translations) and its really interesting, i somewhat understand kusla's personality and i like it. Even though i still dont completely understand Fenesis' personality yet.

In case anyone had missed this, there is a trial version of volume 1 chapter 1. Will be uploading the story by entire volumes, after editing.

Working through Chapter 3 atm. They missed out on a very important character in the manga.

There's a manga called Billionaire Girl by the same author. It doesn't have cat ears at least.

Ch 7 is released, and it is the end of the arc. No spoilers here with specifics, but I will say I was very happy to read the conclusion! Am looking forward to more chapters....
