Welcome to Zero Kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho by Kobashiri Kakeru!
Hello and welcome to Zero Mahou the Translation, new parts released every Monday!
Zero Kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho is a fantasy/adventure light novel that can be considered to be extraordinary amongst its peers. Within is a tale told through the perspective of the semi-human protagonist, referred to only as “mercenary”, as he travels the land with his client, the knowledgeable yet naive witch named Zero.
This is a story of prejudice and redemption, religion and vulgarity, that offers social commentary on the most pressing issues of the day, such as racism and religious conflict. The characters are also far from your typical heroes; our protagonist is but a run of the mill mercenary trying to eke out a living for himself while living through intense discrimination, and Zero is a preeminent spell caster who has been secluded in a cave since birth.
There is no better way to introduce the work than as a unique take on the adventure genre, while maintaining classic narrative techniques that should not be changed.
Please, do leave feedback as it helps us very much to know what you think of our work, be it good or bad, and don’t forget to also thank our editor, Lockman Capulet, for editing so assiduously.
Hop in, and enjoy the ride.
