Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, is whisked away to a whole new world. Unfortunately for Sei, the ritual that summoned her—meant to produce a “Saint” who would banish the dark magic—brought two people over instead of one. And everyone prefers the second girl over Sei?! But this is just fine by Sei, who leaves the royal palace to set up shop making potions and cosmetics with her newfound magic. Business is booming, and this might not be such a bad life, after all…as long as her supposed Sainthood doesn’t come back to haunt her.

It seems a lot of people really didn't like saint magic power, and I'm right there with them. So yes it is a slice of life, romance, fantasy isekai yes that is a mouthful and that is really all it is. And most people were probably expecting more. But it has the same that each of those genres have just bundled in to one package. Is it bad? No but it probably shouldn't be on the any urgent want to watch list. Still give it the 3/4 epsiode try and if you really like where it's going the stick with it if your a bit indifferent or worse  then just drop it there's really no wow factor here.  I'll do a short detailed review for the more curious, spoiler free for those allergic to spoilers first the animation is pretty solid and consistent, but again shows in general have gotten way better since 2020 so it feels hard to choose higher or lower. It's still quality though  Next is the sound which is same old same old generic sound and the occasional bird chirp nothing stands out.  for the characters this is where a major issue stems from, we have for the most part some really interesting characters with good backstorys and compelling scenes but then they blow it away and push it under the rug so they can focus on cliches girl gets WAY to nervous around guy love interest. She's a grown ass woman getting nervous like a teenager with her first crush. It was a huge hamper. finally the story there really wasn't any it was a slice of life but its a isekai fantasy abliet with a generic magic system but it's at least tries to show it but it's and is void of ANY story propellant after I think episode 6 it's just becomes saint+love interest and friends. And also the romance thing goes absolutely no where (shocker)  So stuffing this saint into a box and forgetting about I'd have to say it's another example of a show that could've been better but does nothing and in a bad way. For those who are bored then sure give it a watch but otherswise I would just skip it it's not worth the time well that was longer than expected but hey if you made it this far thanks for the read and have a good day!
