For fans, this means faster releases and translations that aren’t as likely to be editorialized by localizers.
The series follows a young woman named Chise Hatori whose family abandoned her. Instead of killing herself, she’s persuaded to sell herself into slavery to find a home and is bought by the mage Elias Ainsworth to be his apprentice and wife.
