Zagan is a super-powerful sorcerer but lives as a recluse. And now he faces his greatest test… falling in love!
Zagan is feared by the masses as an evil sorcerer. Both socially awkward and foulmouthed, he spends his days studying sorcery while beating down any trespassers within his domain. One day he’s invited to a dark auction, and what he finds there is an elven slave girl of peerless beauty, Nephy. Having fallen in love at first sight, Zagan uses up his entire fortune to purchase her, but being a poor conversationalist, he has no idea how to properly interact with her. Thus, the awkward cohabitation of a sorcerer who has no idea how to convey his love and his slave who yearns for her master but has no idea how to appeal to him begins.
In February 2018, Hako Itagaki debuted a manga version of the light novel on Comic Fire. Hobby Japan released the manga’s first compiled book volume in August 2018 and the eleventh volume on December 1.
J-Novel Club released the manga’s first compiled book volume in English online in July 2021, and the tenth volume on January 17.
