Actually 4.5, but since many give a lower rating I round it up to 5.

Wall of text.

The story follows a young child on her journey to survive after neglected by her parents after knowing she has a no-star job.

... more>> MC is weak, has not much mana and physical power because she is still a child. She survived mainly by avoiding danger so if you expect a lot of battle and become stronger then you might be disappointed.

She has a memory of previous life, but the main consciousness still a child. The previous life memory only affects her way of thinking slightly.

The writing, as if following MC childish train of thought, is very simple and compromised by short sentences. Even I was shocked when I read it at first, but after a while, I found it pretty enjoyable.

There is some weird point I found in the world building but it fit the story so I think it is fine.
Edit: The world-building is pretty unique. It becomes more "make sense" in the later chapters.

I still in the middle of the journey of this series, might update the rating later if I found something worth changing the rating for.

Edit: I have reached the latest chapter and hungry for more. The journey still long I believe, considering the pace of storytelling. Still nice though since the author updates it every one or two days. Hope many would like this series too. <<less

    1. Easy read.
    1. Likable main character
    1. Cohesive world (No gaps in common sense)
    1. Fluffy world which has a steady sense of progression

    1. Quite slow
    1. Lack of initiative from MC
    1. World building is quite slow
This story is more like a slice of life. The focus is on the survival of the MC. There aren't anything extravagant but it is quite enjoyable. It is more suited if you want something slow to chew on. The MC makes you want to root for him which makes it worthwhile. There is a lot of dumpster diving done here and it is quite interesting

Started really cute and good read, especially with such a loveable and hard-working MC that you would really root for. Like, you go girl :)

It was a 4-5 for me.

That is, until the japanese food comes flooding in volume 3 and all the story's charm disappeared for me. Now it's just another one of those novels overglorifying japanese home cooking.
Rice? check. Soy Sauce? check. Miso? check.
...... Isekai.

I definitely have some mixed feelings about this story. The problem is that it is just boring, there wasn't anything that I found particularly offensive or anything. But its like nothing interesting really happens. I'm usually really into these slow-paced fluff type of stories too but its like this one just isn't clicking with me.

I think my problem is that the protagonist just doesn't have a goal. He has no intention of training the slimeball nor does he want to improve himself in any way with the exception of earning... more>> enough money to feed himself and that slime. I'm just very confused by the intentions of the story. What is being even accomplished here?!

yes he gradually learns more about the wildlife and his pet slime but it's not like he actively seeking this info but rather just comes from experience. I suppose there's the mystery of what the hashtag mess after the tamer title means but honestly at this point I don't even care anymore. <<less

5 stars!

A very fantastic isekai novel

Why is this novel not well known??!!!!

I cried every chapters cause it was too painful imagining the child trying to live alone, making traps, hiding from monsters, searching for her foods, anxious from other human

Sighhhhh it's so sad

I mean it wasn't as sad as I said, I'm just a huge softie

It's a sightly different isekai from other that makes it very unique

I totally recommend to read this

Told by the point of view of the young girl. So the writing is a bit childish, but it is a nice easy read right before going to bed.

I think if you just want to relax in the evening with a simple read, do so. It'll bring a small smile to your face.

I have no idea where this story is going, but it's a really lovely low-key slice of life for a girl with an extraordinary life. It touches on some pretty dark themes, but the tone is still overall light and upbeat.

I expected this to go slowly, but after over a dozen chapters of catching rats with traps, finding potions in a garbage dump (because for some reason the containers can't be reused) and weirdly deep explanations of low grade potions and their containers, it does get boring.

Maybe there's more development later on, but judging from other reviews, that doesn't seem to be the case. Literally nothing happens. There's no real danger, no interaction beyond selling a few animals caught in traps, and no progression in sight.

Dialogues are summed up in... more>> a paragraph, but somehow repeatedly searching the garbage dumps with practically the exact same results each time deserves several chapters. That is in the title of the novel, but I didn't expect that there wouldn't be anything else that would be significant.

The writing isn't horrible aside from the plot not moving forward and the premise isn't bad either, but if this novel ever does take off, it's taking too long to do so.

The translation quality doesn't impact the rating I'm giving this novel, but it's also pretty bad, to the point that grammatically correct sentences become the exception. It's understandable, but not enjoyable to read. <<less

This was quite the surprise to me. Although I do like slice of life novels a lot of times they tend to get boring or the novel’s “world” will seem very bland with unnecessary side characters. This novel on the other hand is quite good. So far I’m not bored at all. In fact I’m really into the story. I love the character development of the MC, her personality is amazing and she feels like she’s quite mature but still her age. I honestly love her character, and how the... more>> world build was done. I also love how it has hints of mystery and I get to look forward to where her journey will take her, what’s the story behind her powers, and the world she lives in. Honestly really like it and recommend others to give it a try. I have high hopes for this, I hope I won’t be disappointed. <<less

I can feel the emotions in the story, the struggle to survive in the wilderness, wariness of surrounding and people. Warmth friendship formed. I love it

Lovely SoL story, with an MC who behaves both rationally, & like a child (e.g. Her rationality is limited by the constraints of who the current her actually is & is only "informed by" the minimal recollections of her first life).

Would rate 5* but the missing one is a protest against Foxteller's blocking of hotkeys which I use to navigate between tabs/windows.

I like this one because it's a slow life and despite being a slow story, it is still full of content.

I really hope it doesn't get dropped again.

Thank you TLs.

I had been looking for a new book to read and then I saw this thinking that the main character was going to be somewhat like Mary Sue (I don't know who she is but people always refer to her when talking about overpowered MC's) and get really powerful but she didn't. The only thing I would say could count as a cheat to her is Sora and the books she got from the fortune teller. Even know she doesn't have much power she still manages to pull through I... more>> think that is why this story is so good. <<less

The story has it quirks. It's a slow burn and often feels like it lacking in some areas. However I like it for that, it doesn't rush on the story at all. It tells the story in a natural and progressive way. If you skip the side stories, it feels like you're reading about someone's life. Their views are limited and you're learning aside them.

The story is also a bit of a tear jerker. At times I would begin to cry because it had hit a certain cord in my... more>> heart. The MC is a person who is quite hesitant, being alone for 4 years and only trusting one person, she became quite the hermit. There are times where I wish she could push herself a bit more. But I do deeply understand where she is coming from. <<less

The story starts off well with the protag and her lovable pet. It eventually stalls and gets bogged down in a circular plot that progresses an inch each chapter. The essence and charm of the story is lost and becomes a boring slog.

This story is so unbelievably fun. It also makes me sad sometimes. It feels like I've developed an attachment to Sora and Ivy. I keep hoping that nothing bad will happen to them.
