Douglas, once known in legend as the strongest magician.

But now he is called old man, as his health slowly crumbles. Beyond just suffering from a mysterious disease that slowly, but permanently, saps his health if he uses magic, the hero’s party forces him out and the adventurer’s guild strips him of membership.

Thus, in the middle of an aimless solitary journey, the ex-adventurer Douglas encounters a cursed girl, Ravi.

Hmm, well, firstly, hmm hmm, I think the slice of life tag is inappropriate.

... more>>
Spoiler

Specifically, the tag description says "no clear central plot". Whilst there is no 'hero's journey' type plot as yet, there is a goal, after the first few chapters at least. Namely, to bring the little girl to the town he's familiar with and settle her and/or settle down with her. It's approximately equivalent to The Last of Us, in that specific regard, it is a Dad novel.

There is also the side goal of finding out the truth of his own curse from the hero, as well. So yeah, slice of life doesn't fit.

Now, that's not to say the tag is entirely inappropriate, since a fair amount of the novel is devoted to building the relationship between the two leads. However, none of that time is spent with meandering nothingness, something I personally dislike in most slice of life novels. In other words, this time is not wasted, the relationship building happens organically through the events of the story. So, ya, tag is inappropriate both in the letter of its definition, and in the spirit in which it is typically used.

Allrighty, now with that done lets review the novel :)

Characters are good, likeable. Even the theoretical pseudo-villain probably has some reasons, which may or may not be relatable if not sympathetic. A little bit predictable in terms of plot points so far, but nothing too majorly obvious.

I like the magic/skills system so far, seems like its rather common to have some, as in there aren't really class distinctions between those who have magic and those who don't. Though there is a Monarchy, with Nobles that can apparently abuse their power somewhat, so class struggles are still on the table in general terms.

Spoiler

Also, there's at least some mind/memory reading magic so far, but it requires permission it seems. I sure hope the permission is required, anyway. Otherwise it could get dark. :/

[collapse]

Anyways, not much more to say, at 14 chapters in this is a strong start.

And, fin. <<less
