    Manga Adaption: Yes
    Description: The story is set in Victorian England. It follows the adventures of 17-year-old Lydia Carlton, who is nicknamed the “Fairy Doctor” due to her interest in fairies. Her life takes a 180-degrees turn when she meets Edgar J.C Ashenbert, the “Legendary Blue Knight Count” and his crew on a sea voyage to London. Edgar hires her as an adviser during his quest to obtain a treasured sword that was supposed to be handed down to him by his family.

    This is definitely the best victorian era and fairies themed light novel I've ever read and believe exist. The story is exiting and although long, doesn't get boring in the least. The manga adaption already got licensed (the anime adaption I think too) and I'm wondering and probably many others too, why this popular novel still isn't. This is definitely a must read for all fantasy and romance readers.

    According to LNDB: 2004-2013.

  • It would be a shame, if this novel doesn't get licensed just because it's too long. The story is totally awesome, there isn't a novel which would deserve getting licensed more than this one.

    Man I didn’t look at this closely but a 33 volume Victorian era LN focused around fairies sounds really interesting.

    I'm upvoting, because I just love this novel. But I won't really get my hopes up for it getting licensed, because it's probably way too long... At this point I'm wondering, if J-Novel Club is simply way too scared of licensing a novel of this length, even if there are many readers who are craving for this.

  • In my eyes it‘s the best historical fantasy novel there is and ever will be!!! Even if there are 33 volumes, this one absolutely must getting licensed!!!!!! The story, the characters and the setting are just awesome!!!
