Water Magician

Water Magician (Water Attribute Magician)


Author: Kuho Tadashi 久宝 忠

Illustrator: Nokito ノキト



This is the story of Ryo, who was reincarnated in the world of swords and magic.
It is a story of the royal road to survive using the magic of water attribute.

What is magic? What is swordsmanship?
How does it relate to the laws of physics that we know?

Or what is politics? What is a nation?
Why are there many 『kingdoms』 in reincarnation stories? Will republics not work?

Can it be written …?

Since it is a water-based magician, so it shall start with 『Hydrogen bond』!

  • This is not a domestic affairs cheat story.
  • There will be no harem development.
  • It is not a science novel.
  • This story is a work of fiction.
  • This story is of a protagonist that is opportunistic/acts at their own convenience.

Please enjoy Ryo’s world that expands little by little. (T/N: Ryo = Stands for Cooling/Refreshing)

    I’m a little concerned you have run out of chapters to translate. Has the author stopped writing?

    • Ditzy informant

      I know it’s a little late but just wanted to tell you that currently there are more then 400 chapters of this novel and it’s seem to get updated once per day so there should be no shortage of chapters.

      • I’m more afraid I cant translate quick enough lol

        • Kiritsuna

          ファイト, but yeah, I don’t think you’ll be able to catch up or close the pace, you would have to go ultra instinct and make 1 or 2 chapters per day lmao

    Does anybody know a novel similar to this one? It’s just because a ilke this type of novel so much 🙂

    Hi I just want to tell you that I really enjoy your work, your translation quality is astounding and the pace is delightfully quick. I check on it several times a day in anticipation for an update. Well long story, short: you’re doing an amazing job, thank you so much for your efforts.

    Has the webpage formatting gone weird for anyone else?
    It looks like this in my browser:
    Most of the page is covered up by the right sidebar

  5. Leon

    nevermind, it’s gone

  6. Benjamin Williams

    I’m glad you’re back, thanks for all the amazing translations!

  7. Fumungus

    Elven slaves? The Debuhi Empire is on the bad Ryo’s side one more time….. IMO, the Bridge is something ordered by the empire. Soon or later Ryo will punish them, I’m pretty sure of that. Poor Óscar XD

    Love your translation dude. It’s simple to understand.
