A prologue chapter is currently available to read on the HykeComic service, where Estee: Hajimari no Mahou wo Tsugumono will fully commence on June 25. WIT Studio describes the series as such:
Wands and spells. These are what wizards needed to work miracles… until magical augmentation equipment called "Apparatus" made those old robe-wearers a thing of the past.
Meet Estee, a wizard who grew up in the sticks and, despite being trained from a young age in traditional magic by her grandmother, struggles with even the most basic spells. Refusing to give up on her dream of becoming a fully-fledged wizard, she leaves her hometown to attend a magic school in the city, where she becomes embroiled in a battle to save the world.
Spirits of the dead? A ghost town? An adventure of miracles and curses begins!
