The Different World Magic Is Too Behind!

The Different World Magic Is Too Behind!
(異世界魔法は遅れてる!)

Author: Gamei Hitsuji

Publisher: Overlap

Felmenia Stingray was a genius magician. She quickly became the most distinguished magician of the Astel Kingdom after her discovery of white fire magic, which had the power to burn anything.

However, the world is in peril due to the Demon King. The kingdom's court magicians perform a summoning ritual for heroes and bring forth a hero and two youths, a boy and a girl. Unlike the girl, the young man refused to fight the Demon King alongside the Hero and demanded to be sent back to his world. The kingdom, angry with his behavior, lock him away.

Now Felmenia stands before the young man with her strongest magic, the white flame, being completely useless and asks who he is. It was already obvious to her that this man was far stronger than she was. To this he simply responds.

"Yakagi Suimei, a magician."

  4. does this series only has ~70 chapters or are the later ones only published as ln (the web novel link only has chapters until the end of 2015)? Baka updates says that it's ongoing, are the on a break or something?

    1. After May 2015 there were only 3 posts to the original page: A Chapter rewrite for Chapter 72 in August 2015, and Chapters 76-77. Those were written in October 2015.

      So I would say it is abandoned.

    2. i guess the only way it's still running is then, that the author only continues the light novel and stopped publishing the web-novel?

  11. I think there's an error with the description of the novel, felmina is a mage and the mc is a magician, if I remember good, in the novel he makes explains the difference between mages and magicians (I think it was like that...sorry if wrong).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I believe that it was put as magic-user (felmenia) and magician (suimei)

      Delete
    2. To specify, in the world they are in the are called mages/magic users, while in Suimei's world they're called magicians (magic specialists)

  14. i tot this is an OP MC novel, but that clairvoyance, where there'll be someone summoned after them from their world, titled the strongest swordsman, asking if the mc has gotten any stronger, is more than enough reason to drop this, sorry author you've made the wrong move. i really hate sacrificing pure mc awesomeness for useless plot lines.

    2. He said that the spoiler clairvoyance part at the end of one chapter was enough to make him drop the novel. Basically the MC has a clairvoyance curse that makes him see the future in rare instances and once he's seen it he forget it. It's like a "SPOILER" the author himself made which is a really bad move, the author basically spoiled a big fight near the end of the novel and it doesn't add anything at all to the story instead making people want to drop it.

  17. So he's a magician and claimed to have more advance knowledge in magic yet he was unable to send himself back into his world while the different world whose magic is "too behind" managed to summon him and another 2 from 3 different worlds? Okay...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    1. It would depend on their knowledge. For example, if the summoner does it by route without understanding the whys and hows of what he is doing, then even the person creating the smallest fireball might be considered "higher" in magic as the other guy might actually know what he is doing.

      Either way, it's a minor matter and just a shick for an OPed MC.

    2. Your arguement is invalid. Its like with the Egyptians and their Pyramids, we lived in a modern era and yet we can't even reproduce a single Pyramid.

      Delete
    3. Isn't it already said that they don't understand the summon circle only how to activate it? Most likely it was made by the goddess as the summon circle gave a divine blessing to Renji. The mage lass was shocked when he said he would be able to work it out after awhile.

      Delete
    4. @Alvin De Rama

      You're the one who's argument is invalid. It's not we can't build a pyramid, it's just that we don't want to. What's the point of building a large scale tomb in our modern era? Your analogy is dumb.

      Delete
    5. It's not like he can't - cause he's still developing one, it is mentioned in a certain part of chapter 2:

      "He could tell that the circle was similar to the summoning or seance ones that he developed himself, but that knowledge only applied to him."

      Delete
    6. @Anonymous

      What's the point you said? Obviously to conserve the original pyramid and let tourists fully explore a dummy pyramid.

    7. From Chapter 10 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
      “Wait, don’t tell me you can understand that thing?!”

      “Given enough time, it shouldn’t prove that difficult.”

      “That’s…!”

      This was the hero summoning circle, something that was widely acknowledged to be beyond the realm of human comprehension, something that could neither be analyzed nor understood! And he’d said that he could unravel its mysteries!

      This was a legacy countless generations old. Both the amount of mana to be used and the incantation to be chanted had to be enacted precisely as described by the instructions that had been left behind before it could be activated. Because its construction was far too advanced, the mechanisms behind its operation were not, as of yet, understood.

      And yet this boy had said that he could do it! Furthermore…

      Step 1. Read this part 100 times
      Step 2. Repeat Step 1 100 times
      Step 3. Repeat Step 2 100 times

      By now you should get your answer ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    8. Lets see an example:
      Imagine that there is a native tribe deep in a rainforest cut from civilization and outside interference.They use only tools and weapons made from wood, stone and animal parts (fur, bones, sinew) and they live in a cave or some simple wooden huts. They have primitive medical knowledge but in that area grows a medical herb that has superb disinfectant and painkiller effects without any negative side effects if they don't overdose it. That plant can also cure cancer. Apart from that plant they have only first aid level medical knowledge so any slightly more serious injury is fatal there.

      So going with your logic they have more advanced medical technology then the modern countries because they have that medical herb that can cure cancer.

      That summoning magic was left behind by someone else and they don't understand it. They can only use it because they have the instructions too.
      It could be magic granted by their god or maybe someone from Earth travelled to that world in the past and left behind that summoning circle and the instructions how to use it.
      Suimei did mention that they know how to summon demons or spirits so summoning someone from another world isn't that far from that.

  19. does anyone else besides me get a very, overlord feeling from chapters 7-9 with him trampling over his opponent who is considered strong. It's very similar to ainz in overlord..

  20. Will this page be updated by 12th of May? There are some missing chapters on the TOC although they can be accessed via home page.

    Anyway, thanks for taking up this project! You're my favorite LN translation team. :D

  21. Very nice novel!! It's a pleasant reading so I am glad you translate it! Thank you very much for your hard word!

  22. The web novel version stop at chapter 77 (around the end of volume 4).
    The translations here seems to be using the web version one, do you plan to switch to the light novel one later?

    Btw, anyone managed to find the raw for volume 6, I only managed to find until volume 5...and volume 6 came out already around 3 months ago.

    1. The translation use the light novel version. The web novel version are previously translated by other people and it's probably because the light novel and web novel are identical that the web novel version is stopped.

  37. why did the release date chnge everytime?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've been full of expectation since the start of august until the 19th. now I'm just... slowly dying :\ I really wish there will be a new chapter tomorrow. I don't really want to complain since translation is really hard and of course I am thankful for the hardwork of Translators and Editors, but the wait is really killing me.
    the last time I checked, the release date was August 20, 2016 so I tried not to check NU and skythewood blogspot till 11pm for the thrill. but when i checked, I really died inside.
