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 two youths, a boy and a girl. Unlike the girl, the young man refused to fight the Demon King 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."

An interesting take on the summoned to another world non-rpg isekai. One of the three people summoned to be the demon king turns out to not want to fight. It also turns out that SPOILER.....he already knows magic....SPOILER END.

When you want to rate something, usually you read it more than once, because the first read through is as a pure reader: Man I've never seen this, I can't wait for what this Manga/Book has in store for me. But then you have the second read either because you liked it a lot, want to see what you missed, or you're trying to critique it.

My first read-through (up to date) was pretty jaded. I enjoyed it, I thought the main character was cool, strong (but not that stupid "I'm at the level of god" strong). level-headed and down to earth, and an enjoyable person, ...

Preliminary (16/? eps)
The story alone is a cool idea, even though there are some plot holes. At first it's slightly confusing because a lot isn't explained, but if you stay with it it works itself out. After about 10 chapters, the story begins to go downhill. What I felt like a structured plot, goes off the rails when the main character chooses to go off in a sort of, adventure style story now. It went from what feels like a action, fantasy story to adding slice of life to that.

The art is good. It has some cool art when magic begins, but other then that it's pretty ...
