The Failure Alchemist of the Royal Capital ~My Job Is a Failure So, I’ll Manage My Store Carefreely.~


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I am Daisy von Preslaria. Even though I was born in a viscount family that produces excellent magicians, I was the only one in my family that was granted the failure job, Alchemist.

Since this has happened, let’s try studying hard and become independent as a worthy alchemist!

The five-year-old girl resolved and began to make potions by trial and error. Thanks to her Appraisal skill that she secretly possessed, let alone misfortune, the finished product was of high-quality never seen anywhere!

She cultivated medicinal herbs, indulged herself in research, went harvesting, and opened a store.

This is a story of an alchemist living carefreely, sometimes fervently, while being helped by various people (by non-humans too).

Translator here. I know people are going to do so even if I say it, but I'll still do so anyway. Please do not give a rating until you finish roughly up to chapter 5.

Reason why:

I have, never in all my time translating, ever found that a girl making f**king water to be so appealing. I would've majored in science if I learned how to make distilled water like her.


You follow the main character, Daisy, who receives a "bad job". Unlike all the other sh*ty "bad job" novels, this one takes a different direction. In fact, being an alchemist is not even that bad of a job, and only considered "bad" in noble society. The nobles consider it a bad job because it's hard to find a marriage and that's it. In other words, the title is clickbait to get readers initially interested. Gotchu.

As for the alchemy portion, I feel like the author was inspired by the Atelier video game franchise. This is, however, what makes the novel so appealing for me personally, and why I started to translate this series. What we would find as "common sense" is not common sense for her and the people of this world. Let me remind you that this is NOT an ISEKAI nor SECOND CHANCE, thus we follow Daisy learn about the world and knowledge we take for granted.

This is not as slice-of-life as you would expect. The novel is more about exploring the world and constantly improving her alchemy. I hope you give this novel a try for the first arc before judging anything. <<less

The first chapter might feel heavy as it shows her life before being reborn but after that, it's a fluffy slice-of-life story about a little girl learning to do alchemy, gathering or growing ingredients.

Its yet another adorable story where any problems get sorted out within the same chapter if not by the next paragraph. I'll get tired of it soon enough (there's nothing special about this one), but its wholesome and a nice read.

I really enjoyed this series even though it is only the beginning. I really liked it because it fully explains why alchemist is a bad job in only a certain setting. Here are my favorite parts of the story at this current point. The family supports her despite being a Noble family and what normally happens to people who get bad jobs in a noble family. Also that they do everything they can to help her to get her a bright future. I am surprised that she can use magic despite not being a mage so maybe she can still somewhat be a mage with learning some magic to attack animals that come out when she gathers herbs. It is cool and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Kind of wholesome but of course, like other JP LIGHT novel, it's so light and OF COURSE SHE'S NOT A FAILURE. The setting that makes the alchemist position unpopular is too convenient. It start interesting as the writer explain how she get this to that, but after a while the OP scenes starts to come one by one. In general, so far, it's a wholesome semi-slice-of-life with cute MC.
