Today, Seven Seas announced they had licensed the Light Novel series, The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent (aka 聖女の魔力は万能です or Seijo no Maryoku wa Bannou desu, or The Power of the Saint is All Around).
The series is written by Yuka Tachibana with artwork by Yasuyuki Syuri. The series began publication in Japan February 10, 2017. To date, there are five volumes released.
Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, is whisked away to a whole new world. Unfortunately for Sei, the ritual that summoned her—meant to produce a “Saint” who would banish the dark magic—brought two people over instead of one. And everyone prefers the second girl over Sei?! But this is just fine by Sei, who leaves the royal palace to set up shop making potions and cosmetics with her newfound magic. Business is booming, and this might not be such a bad life, after all…as long as her supposed Sainthood doesn’t come back to haunt her.
Seven Seas is set to release the light novel in print on November 24, 2020. With Seven Seas typical policy being to release the eBook in advance, expect to see the eBook released in late September or early October.
During the event, Seven Seas also revealed they had licensed the manga version of this title as well. Volume 1 will be released on December 8, 2020.
