[manga]The Diary of Daily Life of a Sage in Another World ~ A Carefree Life of a Teacher in Another World ~. Chapter 1

I’d like to try out another series, you may know it by different titles. And it’s kinda weird.
[アラフォー賢者の異世界生活日記~気ままな異世界教師ライフ~
Arafo Kenja no Isekai Seikatsu Nikki ~ Kimana na Isekai Kyoushi Raifu ~
Around 40 Kenja no Isekai Seikatsu Nikki ~ Kimana na Isekai Kyoushi Raifu ~
The Diary of Daily Life of a Sage in Another World ~Carefree Life of a Teacher in Another World~]
It’s being published by Square Enix’s Manga UP! AND there’s another series
(アラフォー賢者の異世界生活日記)
without a subtitle, published by Comic-Walker, and I don’t really see any difference plot-wise, except this one seems to have a kinda less-detailed story. Maybe this one’s a spin-off or a very weird simultaneous remake. And, although it’s pretty easy to translate, as it has furigana, I don’t know if it’s even worth translating…
So. I want you to tell me your opinion on the matter. Is it worth it?
Or, perhaps, I should work on the Comic-walker version, as it seems to have been abandoned about 4 months ago…
Or, MAYBE, both?

01

[Side inscription: The beginning of a new series about the adventures of the middle-aged protagonist!]

O, Flame of Crimson | Burn my enemies

{bang}

“Fireball”!

{BOOM}

Yup, just like that, Ms.Selestina

Yes! Teacher!

04

VRRPG “Sword and Sorcerers”

Satoshi Ohsako (40) AKA Great Sage Zeros Merlin is the top player there

That day

He and his buddies, the strongest, defeated the final boss

All that remained was to finish it off—

But then

05

Damned fools | I shall take you with me!!

{CRACK}

Instead of running wild | The final boss took his life

And then—

06

Then—

He woke up in an unknown other world

What’s that… mail? The sender is Goddess?

“All your equipment is made of the best materials I had, good luck” | Whazzat…

I’m not looking for trouble, you know | I not the “I’m stroo-ng” age anymore either…

07

{Rustle}

And now you die

Give us all the valuables and the girl | Hyahahaha!

You’re blocking the road, you know? | Please, go away

{BOM}

It’s the devil | Ru-un

Aaa!

He saved the noble family that was ambushed on the highway

Let me go with you to the town | thank you

08

And there

He met a noble girl called Celestina

Grand Dukedom of Solestea

09

Oooh

Th…this is

Bread… | and vegetables!

Oh, how I missed human food……!

I’m glad to be alive……!

………

To cry for just this much… just what kind of life did he have up till now | I’m afraid to ask…

Ex-duke Kreston van Solestea

You see, I was roaming through the forest, lost, with nothing to eat but meat… | Those wyverns are sure pesky

Wyverns!?

Did you defeat one!?

Then aren’t you a heroic dragonslayer!?

10

Wyverns are called devils of the skies, you know…

They’re big… but aren’t they just “flying lizards”

I can’t believe it… are you the best wizard in the world…

To turn the common sense on its head with such ease?

Ah, your granddaughter, right | Is she you a mage?

That’s right | She’s a beginner, but has a little problem

Actually, she cannot do any magic

11

Can’t do magic? is that even possible?

Too little mana… that shouldn’t be the case, right?

Well, you see

She doesn’t seem to be able to do even the easiest spell

I tried all I could too | but could not find the reason

I’d like to hear the opinions of different mages in the country

Will you oblige me and have a look?

Hmm…

…The girl… doesn’t have much mana but it shouldn’t be the problem…

12

I would guess, the problem lies in the magic circles

There might be an error in the mana consumption part…

Or the circles are all around defective…

This is, the book I’ve been learning from up till now…

{Whoosh}

Would you check if there is anything wrong with it!?

R-right…

Let’s have a look

…………?

13

What’s with these artificially added imperfections…

Unsightly

It looks distorted, clearly riddled with imperfections | To be clear, it’s a mess

Truly!?

Really!?

It’s still doable if you have a preset amount of mana | But if you don’t, you simply won’t be able to

In other words, it’s a very choosy circle

14

My personal opinion is that this circle is extremely dependent on power

{clap}

You shouldn’t be able to learn magic from this piece of rubbish

{Hmm… A usual person wouldn’t even think to look for imperfections}

{And to spot them at once… he is not an ordinary person}

Would I be able to use this spell somehow?

Of course | You just remove the excessive parts and with a little effort…

Would you please make the corrections!?

Could you make magic easier for me to use, please

Huuu!?

15

I really want to be able to use magic | I beg of you… please…!

…All right

Let’s do it

16

Delete

This one too

{pop}x3

And scrap that too

{boop}x3

{pop}x2

I’ve done checking it | want to try it out?

{pyun}

Eh, really!?

This magic is… “Torch”?

Right

17

An optimised basic magic spell “Torch”

I lessened the mana consumption and added the supply of external mana

{shine}

External mana?

The influx of naturally occurring mana supplements the mage’s own mana

Ohh… I do not comprehend…

{External power}

{Inner power}

{magic activation}

Just keep at it, and you’ll learn how to use magic

Th-thank you! I’ll keep working!

If you master it, you’ll be able to cast spells unconsciously

Yes!

Well… then…

{wooo}

“Shine, o, light, enlighten my way…

18

“Torch”!

I…I can use it… grandpa! now I can use magic too!

Oooh! Good for you, Tina!

The flame is the size of a candle flame

This will do for starters

19

Amazing……!

I’ve been dreaming of the day I’d be able to do magic…!

Miska! Where are you, Miska!?

Look here! I can use magic

I’ve lit a flame!

Oh…

The- the flame is wavering for some reason…

It’s all right | It won’t go out while you supply it with mana

20

Continuously feeding it magic little by little may be hard | Please, keep concentrated

{pff}

Ah, the fire will go out

Ah – now it’s too strong

Awawa

Tina can use magic…

Is it enough to make you cry

…Tina is not a legitimate child | She was born of my son and an employee

On top of being shunned by her two legitimate brothers | She was weighed with being unable to even use magic

Unable to fit in at the academy, always gloomy Tina… | Thanks to you she was repaid for that at last

21

So, won’t you stay here as Tina’s private tutor?

At least for the two months until she goes back to the academy

Me… a private tutor?

And I owe you for saving us from the thieves | As a noble, I have to compensate you

Hm, I just intervened for my own reasons…

I can not let my lifesaver go away unpaid | Anything you wish for

Why not? Still…

Teacher! I could stabilize the flame!

22

Teacher? Do you mean me?

Yes! You taught me how to use magic, so you are my teacher!

Teacher, thanks to you I could move forward!

That’s why I want you to teach me more!

…Just what do I do

Then why don’t you start the lesson right now, teacher?

Yes, grandpa!

Huh?

Then this forest would be perfect – it is in my domain, so no better place for training

Wow~~ You really are nobility…

23

You are a quick learner, aren’t you | You’ve got a knack for it, it seems

Oh? Really!?

Then, let’s see if I fix this textbook of yours | or you run out of mana first

I won’t lose!

That’s the spirit

Aa–

{Badoon}

W-what is it!?

24

{badoom}x2

Ru–n | There’s a Blood bear here

{GRRRR}

Lady, run, quickly

Ah, it probably came in from the rocky land behind the wall

“Steel Chain”

{TRRRRRRRR}

25

{ARRRR}

{Creeeeeeeak}

Ms. Selestina, did you learn offensive magic?

Let’s test it on this fellow | If you’re lucky, you could raise your level, you know?

Huuh!?

I… I can’t, the most I can do is 3 times…

That would be enough | “Tenma’s Blessing”

{Woo}

Ah… | What is this?

26

My original strengthening magic | It increases your magic output for a moment

Ms.Celestina, emotions have a great influence on magic | it’s important to think “I can do it”

Didn’t you want to use magic for a long time now?

So use it to your heat’s content

27

O… Of course

I’ll try!

{GRRAAR}

O, Flame of Crimson

Burn my enemies

{BA M}

“Fireball”!

28

{BOOOM}

U…

HUUUUH—!!!!

29

{GR AA}

Finish it with a different spell you’ve learnt!

Ah, ehm, right

O, wind, wildly slashing blade!

“Air Cutter”!

{Pshew}

{ZOON}

30

{Wooosh}

{Plap}

{sparkle}x2

Teacher……!

Seems you’ve gotten unexpectedly many levels

Your level has risen to 11 | And the mana pool has also increased by a lot

Eh, really!?

The enemy had higher stats, after all

{nervous}

6 at once… | Unbelievable!

31

I could defeat a monster

{nervous}

It was so strong… | Did I…

{pat}

… Teacher…

I’m so glad, Tina… you’ve grown so much…

{…RRR…}

…hm?

…hu?

{RRRR}

32

{RUMBLE}

33

{ZOOSH}

Aaa

What now

It’s a wyvern

RU—UN

{GRAA}

Te-teacher…

Oh, so is it the remainder of the flock I defeated earlier?

It really wants to go at it | Being popular is tough…

34

{PE W}

{ww}

{“Dark Raven’s Wings”}

{Kachink}

{WHIRR}

He… is flying

Hey there, behave yourself

{Shur}

Oopsie

{Clack}

37

{WOP}

Sorry but I hate clingy ones

{Chink}

38

{Zoosh}

39

{BAM}

{Grya}

40

He beat it singlehandedly

It’s not on the scale of a mage

{Shu}

{swop}

Hop

{Awesome, not only magic but close quarter combat too…}

{So, a single person can become this strong…}

41

I’m tired of wyvern meat

Teacher! Teacher, what is your level!?

And what do you want it for

I have to know! Please!

Just how much do you have to train…

{banter}

I wonder how would he fare against lord Dercesis

You’ve beaten the dragon, then it’s all-time highest, 500?

no…

Oh? Did I miss?

What was it~~~ (about 3 times as much…)

Zeros is the anomaly incarnate | I didn’t understand it until now

42

Uhh…

I’ve been shown into the best guest room…

It’s become a hustle already

Excuse me, master Zeros

I am Dandies, the butler | Please, just tell me if you wish for something

43

Speaking of which, the dinner shall be served shortly

Do you wish to take a bath before that?

Oh, you’ve got a bath here?

Of course I do

Let me guide you

Ah~ Thanks a lot

Are you aware of bath etiquette?

Yup, I am | It would be so nice after a battle

Here is the bathroom

I have prepared towels for you

So that you would be able to wash away your traveling fatigue

Thank you very much

{rustle}

Ah~ a bath is a washer for your soul | I’ll be able to enjoy it at long last…

{Katuk}

{cough}

Teacher…!?

Huh

U… | Huuh!?

{bla——nk}

Aaaaaa

{Splash}

Whyyyy

{aho-}x2

Dandies? But the young lady is using the bath right now…?

Huh?

[On the side: I’ve got a feeling that cohabitation with a common bath is going to be fun]
