Dear Not Cunning Witch

An age where science was at the height of its rapid development.
The smooth lines of railroad tracks had divided Ingram’s large landmass cardinally by the time people had really noticed,
And large airships were being developed in their factories by the day in hopes for future commercial use.
The fruits of science were being shared amongst everyone.

Yet, there still existed almighty beings who could create fire in their bare hands or summon the rain on demand.
It was a supreme talent that no enlightened reasoning could explain and not even the most developed sciences could dare encroach upon.
People had revered them and regarded them with fear and awe since long ago.

They, who were sometimes called gods and sometimes called demons —the witches.

Diana was an unfortunate witch who was born the daughter of a great witch but had inherited none of her mother’s talent.
“You must be the most worthless witch in existence.”
Diana had been taken in by her teacher at the tender age of seven, and the only thing she had wished for ever since
Was only to gain her independence as quickly as possible and to live together happily with Hester, her beloved older sister.

But dark clouds hang over even the path she took to finally meet her sister after having gained her independence…….

“Your trip might be a little long.”

The stars had set down an ominous prophecy —what kind of future did they point to?

I really don't know why this novel has such a low rate?!! This is a gem! Coming from the translator of Adonis, you have no reason to doubt her pick. And the translation is beautiful as always.

Be ready to immerse yourself in a world of magic with 18th-century European vibe, in which witches and wizards borrow the power of stars to perform magic. You'll view the world in many perspectives. I love how the author took extra steps to describe how magic works by astronomy theories.

FL: very relatable, not excessive... more>> beautiful or powerful or some sort. In fact, every character in here has their flaws and dark sides. Follow her to see her struggle and grow.
Family love is a HIGHLIGHT of this novel.

If you are tired of yandere and OP characters and now craving something more mature and healthier then here is it. <<less

Hard to find the right words to envelope all the praise for this light novel, not only is it beautiful translated with long chapters, but the story itself is just so well written. From world building to characters, its truly astounding, able to grip your feels in all the painful yet good ways :'D. While the MC girl can get a bit annoying, she's innately a very human character (well, witch lol), she feels real with her flaws.
Long story short, I definitely recommend you read this.

A very interesting story, and the translation by Rainy Translations is top notch - I'd say their translations are best out of all the translations I've read on this site. The chapters are long, the wording is fantastic and incredibly engrossing - I just fall into a story and don't want to climb back out.

Back to the story, I empathize a lot with Diana, the younger sister who looks up to and is proud of her big sister while still having just a liiiitttle bit of jealousy over that sister's... more>> talent. Diana has guts and a fiery temper, and I like that about her. I love all the characters we've met - each one is so vivid and interesting, it's impressive that such a wide cast of characters are so rounded and unique.

I'm now at volume 4 chapter 3 part 3, and the story is still amazing. Every volume has been delightful. I look forward to reading more about these characters and this very well-developed universe. <<less
