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.

Zagan experiences love at first sight and ...

Trying to find a manga that will cause cavities or diabetes???~~ Read this manga now!

I was hooked by this manga since finishing the first chapter. The elements of purity, love at first sight, and awkwardness of expressing one’s tenderness are personally a no brainer for me to continue on reading this manga.

Zagan, our male MC, is a talented young lad, a candidate for “Demon lords”. Yet, everyone believed him as cruel and even cold-blooded.
Result: Can be extremely awkward, unable to express feelings

Nephilia, our female MC, is a beautiful elf with an unknown source of power. Despite this, she was mistreated by ...

A manga derailed by its inability to not hit every single cliche in the book of light-fantasy manga.

While definitely far from awful, the yet-another-long-winded-in-name manga commits perhaps the most cardinal sin of them all: it... becomes boring. A lot of what makes the countless trash isekai manga somehow remain profitable and afloat despite the fact that they're awful by every objective metric is the fact that they're usually not that boring to read. This one, despite not being isekai (a breath of fresh air, if I may say so), however, does become just that: boring.

The cliches that it decides to play by are ...
