    The reviews are mixed, so I can't really decide if I should read it or not.

    The description sounds intriguing but the reviews just really make me uncertain.

    (Spoilers are fine for me and thank you in advance)

    Wasn't it dropped? It's been more then 1 year since last chapter.......
    Just because no one picked it's better for you to not read.... unless you can read the raw.....
    It's a fairly decent isekai story, I guess? But it's pretty much a tale of an underdog with his pet cat travelling around the new world.....

    If it ever gets tranlated again and continued, then its worth it. As it is its not. He's not overpowered and the story has decent character building.

    I find it good, although the translation has been paused for awhile (I would continue reading whenever it picks up again). Although it is very frustrating that the MC’s blessing was stolen, and what makes it worse is that it is certainly the best one (and the guy goes berserk with it sometimes as it wasn’t meant for him) and the douche who stole it is being treated as a big damn hero.
    That said, MC does well enough for himself and tries his best with his lot in life without moping around and feeling regretful. He is fairly proactive and is a great guy. Not to mention Yukishiro (the tiger) is practically a brother to him as well. It is interesting to find out how far MC can go without a blessing, or whether he can surpass one who has his blessing. He already has in some ways.
    P.S. Would be best if it was retranslated from the beginning as the current translations are a bit sub-par and confusing sometimes (though I give them major props for the effort as I wouldn’t be able to do even sub-par translations that still get the general plot through with a bit of effort). So you should probably put it in your reading list (as it is a good read) and check it out when translations (hopefully good) start again.

    Yeah. She probably won’t, but she is a bitch.

    At some point it is worth a read, but with the state of it right now you will just be annoyed with most of the characters
