Why It Should Get Picked Up: This novel has a LOT of potential from what i could see in those 9 translated chapters. First, it’s not an isekai, and it’s not a RPG-like world either, it’s a pure fantasy novel, something rare these days. Secondly, the world building in those 9 chapters was amazing, and the concept itself of a giant tower with a magic society in it that our mc will have to climb is interesting and can make for a really interesting story, even if it isn’t completely original.
Finally, the protagonist seems like he isn’t a wimp or a edgelord, he is kinda naive (naive as in simply having a lack of knowledge, not being straight up dumb like most mcs) at the beginning since he was a slave, but grows quickly by looking around him and studying the society and the economy of the tower. From what i’ve seen for now, this mc has a lot of potential, in my opinion there is even a possibility of him becoming one of those cunning type mcs like lelouch.
So, good mc + Not an isekai or RPG-type world + excellent world building + interesting premise = novel with a lot of potential to be amazing.
The Guingard Tower; in a world dominated by magic, a child arrives at the doors of this magic academy. His name is Lynn. He is a child slave without money who dreams of a wealthy life. He has neither power nor talent. Besides that, a strong discrimination depending on the status awaits him in the academy to which he has enrolled.
Investment techniques, a small amount of money and time, connection with aristocrats… Lynn uses all kinds of wits and runs up the stairs to be a great magician.
