Gekka no Utahime to Magi no Ou (Light Novel Discussion)

The title basically translates to 'Moonflower Songstress and the King of Magi' (月花の歌姫と魔技の王). It's a light novel series by Haneda Daisuke and illustrated by Ooba Kagerou. As of now (October 29, 2012), there is only one volume released.

Here's the summary from BT
Quote:
What kind of future awaits the boy who holds two powers that can change the world?

A technological revolution was brought about by The Last Witch, to the world of magic, with the introduction of 'science'. Lyle, a boy wielding the powers of both magic and science, was caught between his childhood friend, the noblewoman Maria who was pressing forward into an era of science, and Lunaria, a girl of the Phantasm race, a symbol of the age of magic.

Two different girls, from two different eras and ages. Which will the boy bearing the power to change the world choose?
I'm liking the story so far and I'm actually still in the process of reading through what's available in the teaser page...

Florza did a good job of the translations and its more interesting than I originally thought. I initially thought Lyle was going to be the wimp with a harem. He still isn't really badass, but chapter 2 made me think this definitely has potential. After all, im assuming the magic king in the title will be Lyle eventually.

All this talk about science and magic makes me think of TAMNI. Has the release date of the next volume been announced? I bet they're going to introduce a new girl.

This novel is interesting, and it looks like the 2nd volume will be out in a couple days. Hopefully there will be a translator for it.

You should hope for scans first, otherwise translators can't even start translating it (None of the novels I'm considering after Gekka V1 have scans out yet).

Also: It's King of Magi/Mages, not Magic.

we have a thinker over here!~

considering the type of setting, i wouldn't find it surprising to have multiple spouses, and that means we cant rule out the thought of more additions....

but the main wife should be maria... her reactions are 2 die for...
