The Alchemist Who Survived Now Dreams Of Quiet City Life Manga Volume 1 Review

-Written by: Andrew

The Alchemist Who Survived Now Dreams Of Quiet City Life is another calm and easy read with an unnecessarily long name. The story follows an alchemist named Mariela as she tries to live in a new time period. Mariela was raised in a small country bordering the Fell Forest. Everything was going great. Shops and merchants were going about their everyday routines, alchemists selling their potions and smiths selling their wares. All of this came to an abrupt end when tragedy struck the small country. Mariela used some magic to survive only to find that she had woken up 200 years in the future.

It is interesting and fun to watch Mariela go through her new life, figuring out what has changed from her own time. The biggest change: alchemists seem to not exist in this time period. Out of every anime I’ve watched and manga I’ve read that has the main character time travel, Mariela seems to adapt the fastest. She meets up with a group called the Black Iron Freight Corps and strikes a great deal to become their personal Alchemist. After a little while she also becomes the master of a man named Siegmund (Sieg for short). Her life as an alchemist, although she tries to keep it a secret, seems to be going better than she could have ever hoped. Mariela has a business, friends (if you want to call them that), and a bright outlook on the future. It is a very cute and fun story that I didn’t want to put down. I cannot wait to get my hands on volume 2!
