Tachibana started writing after seeing the award guide on the top page of Let's Become a Novelist, and found that "Saint" is included in the title for both men and women in the popularity ranking that I browsed for reference.

Character

Sei Takanashi (小鳥遊 聖 / セイ, Takanashi Sei / Sei) is an office lady in her twenties who was summoned by the Saint Summoning Ritual. Her saintly powers enhance her abilities by fifty percent, due to her appearance she was not crowned as Saint. Accidentally making scenes with her research, she is on the verge of being found out as the saint. But after seeing her abilities she was finally been recognized as the Saint. She Likes to cook and make cosmetics in her spare time.

Personality:

Sei has emotional maturity than many characters. She can be shocked or angry, but is still able to see the positive sides to her situation. She can act pragmatically even while remaining disgruntled. She also displays a sense of joyous wonder toward fantasy staples like magic and potions despite being summoned to another world. She also understands her situation wisely and tries to act calmly.

Summary:

The moment Sei, an office lady in her twenties, got home from working overtime at the office, she was abruptly summoned to another world. Although Sei was summoned to be the Saint, the crown prince of the kingdom exited the room with Aira Misono only, the cute high school girl who had been summoned with Sei, leaving Sei behind.

Sei had no notion of how to return to Japan, so she soon decided to begin working at the palace's Research Institute of Medicinal Flora.

Although she realized that she was indeed the Saint, Sei concealed the truth in order to live her life as an ordinary person. However Sei displayed tremendous magical ability, astounding everyone with her skills in potion-making, cooking, and concocting cosmetics.

Starting from the day she used one of her high-grade HP potions to save Knight Commander Albert Hawke's life, Sei performed one miracle after another. In time, rumors in the place began to suggest that Sei Takanashi was the true Saint. Although she was summoned by the Royal Magi Assembly to be the Saint, Sei managed to avoid being outed for some time. She took up intensive magical training under the guidance of Grand Magus Yuri Drewes, and her days were busy yet fulfilling.

Perhaps as a result of her training, or perhaps because of another miracle with her gold-colored magic, it strengthened suspicions that she was the Saint. However, Crown Prince Kyle denounced those suspicious, stubbornly upholding Aira as the true Saint.

However, on a monster-slaying expedition, Sei once and for all proved her Sainthood. When Knight Commander Albert Hawke was in danger, Sei called on her golden magic to instantly cleanse the black miasma producing the monsters. As a result, Crown Prince Kyle was confined to his quarters for accusing Sei of being a false Saint. Furthermore, Aira, who had been isolated by Kyle once she arrived in the kingdom, was finally able to make friends at the academy, and with Sei. She, too, now strives for a peaceful life.
