The Witch, Who Once Was Called A Saint


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

The ‘Patriotic Saintess’ Astraea, who defended the kingdom from the empire’s invasion 400 years ago, became an immortal witch, set up her house in a hidden forest, and spent her life with as minimal a contact with others. However, one day, she came across an avalanche site, and naturally, saved the young man who was dying. Even though she quickly sent him away after treating him, and told him to never come back, the young man brought back delicious-smelling food as thanks–?

This is a story about an awkward witch, once called the Saintess, who hides her whereabouts, and a sincere young man.

I remember fondly reading this story on syosetsu so I was happy to see someone translate this (even if it's a teaser).

It's about an immortal witch who, thanks to the person she saved on a whim, began to live again instead of merely going through the motions.

Besides the emergence of a plot that served to introduce the Witch's past, the romance is pretty straightforward and food is in abundance here.

As the only living relic that knows about the monsters that plauge the fort, she eventually went to aid in the war effort. She's a big softie, this tsundere former Saint. Her reluctance to enter a relationship is understandable, given her immortality. Thankfully, they didn't have to go for a bittersweet parting and lifted the curse.

I love the premise of the story but I've got one problem: ... more>>

The ML is giving me major creeper vibes.

Look no further than the fact that in chapter 4 he used food to interact with the MC. Then chapter 5 has him display that he can cook as well as one of the MC's queries: 'Why doesn't he ask if I can or can't eat?'

He brought food into her home, then established himself as a cook, and slowly is making her depend on him. It's CREEPY AS ALL HELL!

Add on to the fact that he was staring at the MC when she was asleep in chapter 3 after she rescued him, he's displaying an attitude of a possessive lover (which would be ok if their love interest was their lover/spouse, but the MC doesn't like him romantically at all and just wants to be left alone so it's just creepy...)

I'll admit, the MC isn't completely rejecting his advances with all her might, but do you really need to use magic to tell a person to leave you alone, or should the words 'just leave and don't come back' be enough?


I will keep reading though as it's great in spite of that problem.

Not like I haven't seen Male Yanderes before.
