I actually discovered this book thanks to Kukkiriri’s teaser translations and immediately went out to buy the light novel version. I know that there is a web version being translated by Agni at yAmi translations but there are major differences between the two versions (there’s an introduction of a new character in Ch2 already but the bulk of the changes start from Ch5 of the light novel, which corresponds to Ch15 or so in the web version). I’m going to tackle the LN translation; I’ve read up to Chapter 30 of the web version but I’m more partial to the light novel because I felt like the themes were presented and wrapped up better in the books, but your mileage may vary – I have a friend who has read both but prefers the web version – so I hope Agni continues with their translations so people can have both experiences.

A saint and a knight, and the story of their meeting and separation with a village girl.
–What can I leave behind in this cruel miracle?
“–Just what kind of pretence is that. Is this some new form of torment?”
Yuna, a plain village girl, suddenly lost her plain day to day life. After being requested to by a mysterious light in a bright white world, Yuna finds herself in the body of a beautiful saint. However, what awaited her there was; the contemptuous gaze of the saint’s fiance, First Holy Knight Asyut; the cold detachment from her attendants; and the tense atmosphere of the entire palace. Yuna, alone in her crippling confusion, still tries to fulfill her duty as the saint’s substitute, until one night when she discovers the saint’s sins beyond the spiral staircase…!?
