A new novel series is now underway digitally with print novels to come later with J-Novel Club having picked up The Extraordinary, the Ordinary, and SOAP!. The new property comes from Nao Wakasa and ICA which began in 2015 online. It was picked up by Frontier Works with their Arian Rose imprint and they brought it out in 2016 and 2017 as a three-volume series.
Plot Concept: Lucia Arca was an ordinary, unremarkable laundrymaid in the royal palace. Even her unique magical power, Soap, was boring: it simply created soap bubbles that removed stains. But when she learned one day that Soap could also calm and stop rampaging monsters, the king decreed that Lucia must join the Sacred Maiden and her companions on their quest to cleanse the land and save the world.
On a mission to save the world alongside the Sacred Maiden, the famed Dragonslayer, a prodigy magician, and other great heroes, what is an ordinary laundrymaid like Lucia to do?
But she learns that even extraordinary heroes are ordinary people, in their own way. A heart-warming romantic comedy featuring an ordinary but earnest heroine!
