The White Cat That Swore Vengeance Was Just Lazing on the Dragon King’s Lap

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

While on her way to college, Ruri and her classmates from her secondary school days were summoned to another world by a bright light that shone on the ground.

The summon was supposed to call forth a shrine maiden that would bring glory to the country. With ‘a’ being the operative word, It seems that she was just an unfortunate bystander that got mixed up in the summoning.

Luckily for her, accommodations and other necessities were provided. Not so luckily, she was made into a criminal by the conspiracy concocted by her so-called ‘friends’ and was exiled to the forest.

She was saved by a witch after encountering an unknown being. She then swore vengeance on her former ‘friends’.

Studying under the witch, she finally gained enough power to exact her vengeance… or so the story was supposed to go, other than the fact that she turned into a white cat, and was sleeping comfortably on the lap of the Dragon King.

Not really a good story. The author tries to make a main character that have a lot of things in her favor (beauty, knowledge, magic power, etc) have "weakness" (and they totally aren't) to try and mask that the MC isn't a mary sue.

The author just pulled stuff out of his ass to explain how she could know things ... more>>
Spoiler

like when she was throw into the forest, she magically has a knife on her boots, because her grandfather was an survival junkie that trained her to survive in situations like this

[collapse]

This is a poor story, that has an INTERESTING concept, but it still isn't on that part yet, but for now, it's a bad "transport to another world" story with a mary sue character that doesn't have a personality. <<less

There are a lot of contradictions made in the setting in order to put the main character in a better light and even most of the misunderstandings are forced. In addition, nearly all of the characters are reduced to shallow foils for the protagonist- an 100% Mary Sue. I ended up skimming the last few chapters, hoping that at least the general plot would be good but even that disappointed me. The only good point I found- the original idea of a fluffy, amusing story about a revenge character spending... more>> time with the Demon Lord. Unfortunately everything else spoiled it. So if you're into Mary Sues right now (everyone has a phase like that once in a while) then by all means give it a chance- I'll recommend it. But if you're not, I think you have better things to spend your time on. <<less

The story is great. The protagonist is clever but also have slightly submissive personality due to being unknowingly suppressed under her childhood "friend". The main character is slightly OP, but she herself don't see that, so the story is really funny to read.

A cute story with slight misunderstanding comedy undertone, despite it's early part seems a little bit heavy it's actually a lighthearted shoujo series. It's not a really serious series, don't expect epic plot without a little bit bump here and there and expecting it as different genre (for example some scenes which meant to be taken as comedic and trivial scene taken in a serious manner). Don't judge way too early and give it a try at least 10 chapters before deciding it's good or not.

To be entirely honest, this is not a good story.

I debated on whether I should rate it as 3 stars for average, but I feel it just doesn't quite make the cut. The initial concept was interesting, but everything else is just... bleh.

I initially thought it'd be more dark when I first picked it up, but I'm not here to complain about that. By the way, if you ARE looking for something more dark/serious, then this isn't the story for you, go back, stay away.

Anyways, the story has bad writing.... more>> By bad writing, I'm not talking about the translation or anything.

Everything just seems... forced. The world building is weak, the plot (?) itself isn't interesting, the characters are poorly written, some dialogue, actions and misunderstandings seems really forced, the writing is vague, the whole thing feels kinda like a wish fulfillment story thanks to the MC, plot holes haphazardly covered up (but not really) etc. I certainly don't feel like there was a lot of planning going into this story when the author was writing it.

The plot itself leaves a lot to be desired. How do I say this... It's so simple, it's a wonder why the other characters (who are supposedly more capable) not doing anything to stop it in its tracks beforehand it gets out of hand?? I mean, then there wouldn't be a story, but still.

Spoiler

Ok, so I read up to ch28 right?

The evil King's plan is basically revealed to be: make up some priestess BS; summon stupid people they can control and pretend one of them is the priestess; instigate said priestess to advocate the war; spread propoganda about not believing in priestess = sin so they can kick out the people who advocate peace; conscript all fighting citizens to their army, but meanwhile treat them like crap (because that's always a good idea, right?) ; wage war on dragon kingdom and win!

Seems like there might be more to the plan from where I read, but honestly I got bored of it...

The dragon king conducted espionage, but practically did nothing else. No negotiations (tho that wouldn't have worked), no contacting the non-pro-war nobles and maybe manipulating things so they'd sit on the throne (which would've been a better thing for all the countries honestly, if the humans were going to be human supremacist pricks), apply pressure on the human government with sanctions or whatnot, or even outright kill the stupid source before you things escalated to actually going to war, but they basically just sit and watch for TWO years as the country goes to sh*t... *facepalm*

What are you people doing, running a country...

[collapse]

Frankly, this light setting doesn't suit this whole "kingdom conspiracy to go to war" thing, and the author doesn't seem to be any good at writing them either. Anyways, it doesn't match even if you try to force it, so please stop trying author-sama. I mean, I get why the plot isn't heading down this road (since the ML is the king of a neighboring nation and MC has grudges against the human nation that summoned her) but it's really forced and contrived and out of place. Please just stick to your comfort zone, or think of something more thrilling and elaborate or reasearch more before you try and put politics into the story...

Ruri, our MC, suffers a bad case of Mary Sue as well. Beautiful, smart, multitalented and everyone likes her... =_=

Spoiler

Theres a part where I cringed (it's untranslated as of yet) where Ruri goes to the kingdom that summoned her and looked at a normal village. It's near the time when the war is going to star up, and people were starving in poverty with soulless eyes.

Now, what does Ruri do after seeing this?

She wordlessly walks into the village in human form. Without speaking to the villagers who don't pay attention to her because they're too busy being poor, she casts magic that grows fruit trees and uses wind magic to distribute it to everyone else. Then leaves.

When asked later by her spirit pet? Thing why she did it, since it'd have no effect on the people at all, Ruri replies that she knows, it's the country's job to fix the problem, but she just couldn't leave them like that.

It's just... cringe.

I mean, her actions might be noble, but the way it was delivered seemed so MC centric and self-centered... Maybe if at least the author pulled the poor beggar child bumping into her either trying to mug her for money or beg for food cliche, and THEN she had gone and done that, it wouldn't be as bad. But Ruri literally walks into the village, unprovoked and making minimal contact with the villagers at all, and does her life saving mojo. What happens after those fruit trees stop possessing food has nothing to do with her, apparently.

IT JUST FEELS SO PRETENTIOUS!!

You can give a man fish and feed him for a day, or you can teach a man to fish and feed them for life. What Ruri did was the former. She didn't inspire them to live (like a good protagonist would) or give them purpose, or even try to help them out of their predicament. All she did was give them food that's would last for who knows how long and help them stave off the hunger. It's not like they'll get seeds from those magic trees (who knows how long it'll take for them to grow too), it's not like they suddenly have enough energy to go farming or hunting, it's not like their brothers and husbands will come back from being forcefully conscripted into the army, it's not like the soulless look in their eyes will go away from just an apple or two...

In the end, other than trying to look good, what did she really accomplish here??

[collapse]

Ruri seems to think her only flaws comes from Asahi sticking around her, but I can think of a few more (like your personality, for example).

Seriously, when the chance to complain about how Asahi ruined her life by just being around her comes up, Ruri doesn't hold back. And Asahi, dense as a brick, doesn't even care and just keeps going at her. Wth? I don't have any sympathy for either of them really, but whenever Ruri complains about Asahi, the people around Ruri who treat her good are like, "oh my god, that's terrible, you poor girl" and take her side...

Why??? She is badmouthing a person you've never met, who hasn't done anything towards you and who Ruri knows doesn't have any ill intent towards her. How can you just accept that? No discomfort either, they agree with her unconditionally...

I can't relate, I can't sympathize, I don't really like the MC or the supporting cast...

All in all, it's poorly written and needs a lot of work.

I wouldn't recommend for serious reading, but it it's every once it a while then it's not a terrible way to pass the time with. Just, it's not that good either. <<less

I had a few questions while reading this novel:

... more>>
Spoiler

1. If fairies truly adores Ruri (to the point they tried to kill the thugs approached her), why didn't they do something when she was in the castle, considering how rude the royal members treated her?

2. Regarding Chelsea, why she can normally ask her grandson the content of his work? Isn't it supposed to be classified information since you know, he is a SPY? And despite both her son and grandson work for the dragon king, she didn't once warn them about Ruri (who is a worldwide-scale disaster) and technically raised her for 2 years in the forest?

3. Still Chelsea, knowing how fearful Ruri's power is, made her go to the capital by herself with NO money so the poor girl had to sell a gun she took from the space fairy. And that was why she immediately attracted thugs, got chased by them and met a king happened to disguise by chance?

[collapse]

I don't know if I miss these information somewhere but I think I won't try to read this novel again. It's pretty mediocre and has weak character development. Even the witch who is supposed to be very old doesn't act her age at all. Everything seems forced and confusing to me <<less

I feel disappointed. I actually really loved this story, but the past few chapters have felt like such a betrayal to the fluffy, sweetness that we've been getting. What's so sad is that it's clear the story is still supposed to be fluffy and sweet, but the ML has been seriously creeping me out for the past two chapters and the MC is terrified.

... more>>
Spoiler

In chapter 39 it's revealed that he ruined her date with another guy on purpose, comes from a race that is so jealous, married women aren't allowed to be seen, so she's expected to quit her job, and basically uses the fact that she loves him and that he—without her permission—made it impossible for himself to have another lover, to blackmail and force her into a marriage before she's ready.

In chapter 40 it gets worse: She isn't being given any choices in regards to her own wedding, the ML isn't respecting her desire to take things more slowly and is actually scaring her, and he's transferring power to her without permission, with the implication being that she'll get pregnant immediately after the wedding because of it, without asking her if that's what she wants. I mean, when she found out about the future pregnancy she "became frightened and cringed." So, yeah, really, really not cool.

[collapse]

I had been eagerly looking forward to reading each chapter of this story before now, but I honestly was afraid to read chapter 40. I made myself do it, and I kind of regret it. Of course this isn't by very, very far the first story I've read that romanticizes unhealthy behavior, but I just feel so betrayed after loving this story so much for the past few months or so I've been reading it. I am seriously considering dropping it. <<less

Disappointment is the best way to describe this. Well also, Really annoying in the choices the story makes.

The MC is just a Mary Sue with no flaws. Like maybe being socially awkward from her years of being hated and rarely talked to. Maybe her having a personality void of character and just a neutral tone from her learning to be as neutral as a way to avoid scrutiny. Nothing like this is a thing and the story purposely makes the world evil so we like her more.

I won't lie, I... more>> did enjoy maybe the first 10 or 12 chapters. The first 10 or so chapters are around the 5th chapter of the Manga. But when I compare it to the manga. I do feel the manga is much better. The story tends to kind of take itself and this absurd tagline way too seriously. In the manga, it tends to be really comedic which is why it is much more bearable seeing the world be so cruel and doesn't seem so fake.

The author seems to not know or just not think too much about it. But the way the world is set up isn't great. You take more than a minute and think about things then you will notice lots of flaws. Like this being a fantasy Medieval era setting yet we have the " DragonKingdom" Trying to make things like the UN. If you think of it, It doesn't make much sense for such a setting. Let alone some dumb law they have where they can't oust a Government even though said government is driving the people into hell and is constantly declaring war.

Once the MC leaves the Hut/Forest. That's where the story takes a sudden nosedive. The romance is so badly made and does nothing more to insist my idea that most female Romance stories tend to have the worst type of romance. I completely forgot about this one character trait you can find in Female Romance stories. They will either be a massive douche, Pansy, Blanksleight or be an idiot. The Male lead in this is leaning more towards a Blanksleight and an idiot. He besides the awful plots, Then the Romance lead is probably the worst thing.

I am genuinely disappointed how it ended for Ashai and the MC. I like their relationship together. I imagine that even though the MC dislikes how she's treated by everyone in favor of Ashai. That she realizes that she actually dislikes being away from Ashai. I imagined it as a comedy skit.

One of the dumbest issues I have is this [ Spoilers] It's revealed that the MC's mother and grandfather actually have magical power. But... IT'S NEVER EXPLAINED! Like honestly. We are told about how they are well versed in this yet we are told that you can't return to Earth so it should be impossible. Hell, There's another issue! It makes no sense why she can't return to Earth but can be summoned to this world. It's just haphazardly explained. We are told the Fairies can go to Earth and back whenever. So why not just send the spell incantation to the Mother and Grandfather and summon them back? You start seeing these big problems and the story tries looking past it like throwing a blanket over an Elephant. You aren't doing it well.

I do find it kind of sad that the MC can't return to Earth along with everyone else. I think this story would've been better if it was the MC going around the world and gathering stuff to return to Earth while also having the MC take care of Ashai as a companion. Also, Get rid of the romance and that annoyingly obvious harem of guy the MC has.

A disappointment. I even cut out a lot of other issues I have with this for the sake of time. If you read it on Novelplanet then you will most likely find my comments complaining about the stuff happening. <<less

I've only read a single chapter of the manga so far, and zilch of the novel. However, I'm giving it a five stars (for now) on the basis of the poor reasoning given by the people who've reviewed it negatively.

Whether I change the rating or not is up to how I feel after reading what has been released.

What I have to say atm: the idea of the "Mary Sue" was created & proliferated by misogynistic chauvinists who wanted to police the depiction & empowerment of women in media by dismissing... more>> them as fancifully indulgent/unrealistic. Conveniently ignoring their own idolatry of OP male counterparts in fantasy, science fiction, adventure, etc.

Labeling any exceptional or "special" female character with talents/aesthetics/intelligence above what they perceive to be the norm a "Mary Sue" is lazy and offensive. (I do have issues with the eurocentrism of the MC's looks, but that's another issue, and unrelated.)

That's all, for now. I'll come back to this review for edits/additions after a read.

Additions:

The manga is much easier to read than these translations, but it's not impossible to understand. Just harder bc the grammar is a bit off. The motives of Asahi are unknown, but I'd appreciate some explanation by the end of this. Her chaacterization is pretty one-dimensional, & she seems to only exist to gather sympathy for the MC so far.

The MC is a little frustrating bc her troubles are understandable and she is pitiable, but she does little to solve her own problems. She just complains and lists her grievances in mental monologues. Get a restraining order, move to another prefecture, go to a boarding school, elucidate in public how much you'd rather she leave you be. Anything.

A little disappointed the MC isn't as sharp as she initially seemed to be. She's more dense and rash than I thought, and less intelligent/wise/shrewd than I had hoped.

She is definitely OP, but it's acknowledged and comedic. Ex: "Seeing Ruri effortlessly create the dimensional tear that was supposed to at least be challenging, ___ smiled bitterly." <<less

What do you get when you have:

    1. A stupid 'best friend' with an annoying 'charm' and stalker tendencies
    2. An MC with the fairy-equivalent of mass destruction for any country.
    3. A hunk of a Dragon King that needs mofu mofu.
Yep this is happening folks.

Ok, ok, *serious face* (' _ ')

I will behave now. In all seriousness, this read is hysterical. I love the creativity and sheer goofiness this novel. And yes I recommend this for anyone looking for a light-hearted and sweet novel.

So let me get this straight... Spoilers for the first chapter below:

Spoiler

The main character is shunned because she has blonde hair and green eyes in favour of her more traditionally japanese "best friend", but it's later found out that her best friend dyed her hair blonde and wears green contacts and the main character hides her 'stand out' features yet MC is still shunned? Someone help me understand this...

[collapse]

Not well thought out, but if you're into the crappy Mary Sue webnovels right now then you'll probably enjoy it.

It's bad.

First chapters were very fun to read, but then MC gets an OP power. Not the kind of OP power we're used to in other novels, but the wish-granting one that erases any feel of "challenging content".

... more>>
Spoiler

Our protagonist gets summoned to another world, gets mistreated, gets kicked out and left for dead, gets picked up by a witch who starts teaching her common sense of the world. Then fast forward two years and she's sent to the capital of Dragon King's country. So far so good!

And then she just does nothing at all. She's a pampered OP being who's willingly reduced to Dragon King's pet. From now on it's a story about how Dragon King and his advisors handle the problem of an agressive country that declared war on them.

The revenge she swore gets abandoned and later executed without much of her impact.

The thing that moved plot after she decided to be a Dragon King's pet was that everyone didn't knew she's actually a human, she was pretending to be a telepathic housecat for 10 chapters or so. Then it gets revealed. Consequences? None! The one who revealed it got punished instead!

[collapse]

Non-spoiler version:

I've enjoyed the story up to about chapter 10-12 but then from adventure story of protagonist in another world it goes full shoujo. The kind of shoujo where nothing could go wrong because MC is super special.

I don't think I'll give this novel another chance, because by now it's just waiting till MC's status gets upgraded from Dragon King's pet to consort. <<less

Ah, that ended too soon (translated chapters I mean)... It's an adorable, light, fluffy story that just heals your bleeding heart. It's a fairy tale. I repeat it's a fairy tale. As in genre. Fairy tale. Cinderella? Snow White? Those ones. Without all the gory details, tho. What I mean is, don't expect it to be a novel with all the tropes and mumbo jumbo you EXPECT to see in jnovel or cnovel. Of course there are, but prejudiced expectations would disturb your reading experience and you might miss all... more>> the joy of this novel.

It's a really, really great read to heal your battered spirits.

Romance +

Adorably dense MC (I'd say tho she's just scarred and in denial, and not dense at all) +

Adorably gorgeous caring ML +

Light-hearted +

Uber fluffy +

Uber cute +

Good prevails the evil +

I read it back when there were only 12 chapters, and fell madly in love with it. All the problems that people have are reasonably explained and provide the foundation for a story full of adventure, laughter, misunderstanding, and outright adorableness.

When it stopped being translated I actually decided to try to machine translating it - and I read it to the end! It's so good and I am so happy that you are translating it again!

Ok, so it looses only 1 star for some forced plot points that forcefully make the MC out to be really awesome/ beautiful/ smart; but what Japanese novel doesn't? It's a very funny, cute story, that more than any great plot or great writing has something that I look for most in a novel. I want to keep reading more, its just light enough for casual reading and you can eat these chapters up.

Seems to be a pretty standard shoujo. Around twenty chapters are spent explaining why MC has OP powers and is a love interest of the greatest guy in the world. Then the focus switches to working through relationship problems. I find that to be bland but if you like shoujo then this seems reasonable enough. Not outstanding by any stretch but not terrible. Just average. A lot of the negative reviews can be attributed to the interesting setup. I was rather disappointed to see this change in the same manner... more>> as "Breaking Off the Engagement? Bring it on!", but I'm not the target audience. Basically, she starts off as being unfairly picked on, then it is revealed to the reader (but not the MC at first) that she has powers that can change the world. Typical build-up for a story with some kind of 'chosen one'. But then all of the political stuff gets resolved in a few chapters so that the MC has more time to think about romance, making friends, and fixing misunderstandings. For those of us who came for angst, political intrigue, or action, this is a huge disappointment. For those who want to see a bullied girl find happiness in new surroundings, this will probably be a fun read. It's just a matter of what you're here to see. <<less
