The Last Surviving Alchemist Wants to Live Quietly in the City


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

The Kingdom of Endalgia was destroyed by rampaging monsters coming from the Demon Forest.

The alchemist, Mariela, was able to escape almost certain death by using the “Magic Circle of Suspended Animation.” Although it was somewhat inadvertent, she awoke nearly 200 years later, in a time where all other alchemists had died out.

A labyrinth was left where the demons had stampeded through. In this labyrinth, a city formed from what little remained of the Kingdom of Endalgia. Its purpose was to manage the Demon Forest.

In this city, the only remaining potions were decades old and the effectiveness of these potions had deteriorated. This caused the price of potions to increase by nearly 100 times.

Mariela became the only alchemist left in the city able to make potions. This story is about Mariela secretly selling potions while trying to relax and enjoy life in the labyrinth city.

This is a very cute story so far. Reminds me of Miniature Garden Chemister. I love potion making stories and stories where the MC is very self sufficient, similar to the witch of 300 years killing slimes... etc. I think the translator is doing a good job at keeping the nuances, wit, and humor of the story. Mariela looks to be very likeable 3 chapters in. I'm ready for more!

I really realllyyy love this!!! Although it's just starting and the first 10 chaps is like an introduction (kinda), it has a really great plot similar to those stories with normal MCs that somehow became OP in a degraded version of their normal world or err timeline (?)

Sieg is such a cutie that doesn't deserve that treatment at all!! I liked mariela and his interaction, tho it still a few you could already see that they would have a superr loyal servant and easy going friendly master relationship in the future. Though I hope that sieg becomes a bit tough (?) Or more reasponsible I guess in the future because mariela seems kinda naive to me and I felt she was being duped by those black iron transportation mercenaries (?) At one point. I just don't like the fact that she easily agreed to what those guys said, I just need seig to be open minded and not naive. Pls. T.T


I don't usually read novels that just started translating so I put this off for a few weeks but still, I couldn't help reading it despite knowing it will make me cry when I ran out of chapters to read (which it did). I reallyy hate that it still doesn't have a fixed update schedule and not knowing if the translator would continue this or not so I reallyyy hope you stay strong on this translator-sannn!!! I'll support you all the way!!! <<less

I do hope that the translations for this novel will push through. I dont usually read novels just starting out because the waiting time will frustrate me. But since it's alchemy and female MC, I indulged with it. It is ver promising and looks like it is a story of wits. Pleeaaase dont abandon this translator samaaaa 😙😙
