    Sad. There is a LOT more to this book/story than is here. There's the Demon who spent years in the Dungeon in order to develope something like Alix, due to a promise/prophecy (?) to a fallen people. He's not actually part of the Dungeon, just there. There's the dragon, who's on that mountain specifically to guard that hidden village and has something to do with the Demon in the Dungeon. Later, some of the youths who left get captured by the religious freaks and forced to show the way to the village, where the rest are nearly wiped out when the dragon is away from it's cave. Think it's around this time that Alix leaves the cave with some of the surviving Kobolds, runs into the dragon and the fallen race (the religious freaks destroyed their country/people in the past, causing the survivors to build the village in hiding), and encounters the religious freaks again. The religious freaks (who follow a false doctrine, created by a guy who was jealous of magic) fought against the people outside the Dungeon entrance, broke into the Dungeon and end up slaughtering most of the Kobolds. They get their hands on the art and notes about Alix as well as the crystal recording, using that to mislabel him as a Demon, as per their religious texts. They end up fighting him, but fleeing from the wrath of those whose country they invaded to reach the Dungeon after Alix excapes. They only find out what a real Demon is when he shows up in the dragon's lair, scaring the hell out of them before deciding to 'visit' their church/country. Alix ends up taking the fallen people as his own as per the prophecy (?). Later he starts going to a human town in disguise to learn more about blacksmithing. Don't recall when but his spear gets him into a lot of trouble because of what it's made out of. He ends up revisiting the Dungeon to mine more minerals or was it that he wished he could? Can't remember. The Kobolds end up confronting and talking to their 'god', the dragon. It explains to them that due to their stay for so long in the Dungeon, they have evolved into a new type/species of Creature, no longer beholden to it and in control of their own fate. Believe they then decided to stop worshipping the dragon and to find and teach other Kobolds thier new civilization. What I can't recall is anything about that necklace... Do recall that Alix's people end up being treated like a protected species by the Old Monsters in that country and allowed to re-establish a small nation of thier own. Oh, and the stick Alix carries is from the Tree of Life mentioned in that one chapter about world creation. Alix ends up becoming something like one of the Guardian Beasts (or was it the fire spirit that did?), with the duty to protect his new people, who were nearly destroyed due to the upper powers not paying attention, and thus those powers felt guilty, which is where the Demon's plan to create something like Alix comes in. Think he created a fake prophecy to do it, too, but memory is foggy on this part. There's more such as the humans possibly not being from that world in the first place, but as refugees or some such thing. Anyway Alix ends up meeting the Old Monsters, some of the Guardians, and maybe a few other Powers before the end. ****That is why this was a Spoiler****

    A wonderful take on the isekai genre. This is a welcome subvert of the isekai genre. Firstly the protagonist Alex isn't an over powered wish fulfillment author insert hero. He's a normal guy who got caught up in a weird situation, Ok well in the first chapter his whole family dies tragecly, basically out of nowhere, and by the time truck-kun finds him he's sitting depressed in a state of delirious despair, on a park bench. Its tragic and funny at the same time in a morbid kind of way. But Alex does suffer in this story and you do feel for him. Spoilers Below. After rencarnating in an egg Alex spends his first days fighting for his life, and running away to try and find some safe location. And he does find it, unfortunately it's a safe room in a dungeon and as a dungeon monster by disobeying the dungeon and entering it, he's made himself a traitor and now has a kill on site order for his head. Fantastic. But their is a bright side while searching for food he comes across a mother cat avenging her kittens and for helping her in her last moments Mama Cat ignores the kill on site order and nurses him back to health. Giving her his blessing and dropping a miracle class loot for her adopted kitten child. (Ok, yea. Incase it wasn't obvious from the title. Ales is a dungeon Mob. Specifically a weak little kitten.) But even without his Swag new collar and blessings he's well on his way to becoming the strongest dungeon Mob ever. Not soon enough thou. Because soon after the demon lord, who runs this dungeon walks into the scene. Beats Alex within an inch of life and steals his mother's necklace, saying he'll givit away as some premier loot. Alex on his part seeing how outclassed he is does the rational thing and vows to kill him, reclaim his treasured necklace, and make that demon regret ever even think of stealing from him. And that's all the set up. I could go on how the battles are cool, and varied. how the lore is sprinkled in to explain the power system. Or how Alex's journey of revenge and growing stronger is compelling to read, and root for him. Honestly though there is no one reason to read this story. It's how it all comes together that makes it good. I would liken it to cake batter. The ingredients alone are ok. But it's how they come together that forms the overall feel. And the feel is nice.

    This novel was good when mc stayed as a cat and didnt have a transformation to human now the author followed everyother **** novel where the mc starts out as a cool creature then turns into a much more inferior human cuz author cant muster up the 4 braincells it takes to keep the mc as his original non human form. Nope author be like "let me copy the other guys and give my mc a human transformation cuz i cant think for my self herp derp even tho his original form is mich stronger nope lets make him a weak little *****" man i hate authors that do this stupid bull why even make your title stuck as a cat in a dungeon if ur not gonna keep the mc as a cat might as well make it "copy and paste plot in a dungeon" **** author **** book

    Taking advantage of the Bug, I will review my book, but I will not give 5 but a 4.5 <How cool I am> * I pat myself * Well, if you have any questions, leave it below and maybe answer it but if I consider it a spoiler to answer you, I will be ambiguous with my answer. Extra Fact: I am using this book space to write this original, I had about a month without uploading a chapter of my previous book, written in Spanish, and I had about 3k of visits when I decided to write another original novel, now that I think about it, It is as if I had chosen to write a book with a difficult start.

    I really love this story so far! The plot is compelling! The MC is super interesting and hilarious! And there's a really great mix ballance of ******* and humour that keeps me coming back for more. Dearest Authour-san, you are a really talented writer and anyone who says otherwise about your writing of this story is probably a grammar-nazi who's complaining about the english quality. That stuff can be fixed later by an editor! The story itself is great and I earnestly look forward to reading more and seeing what happens in this world you've created and what adventures you send Alex on. Thankyou muchly! \(^o^)/

    I dropped when the author forced MC's emotion to a cat, and I'm not exaggerating" Mc helps cat being attacked by rats, gets picked up by big cat and moved. Then dies." At no point was any emotional connection was shown. Only after when the author wanted to create some empathy did he force emotion by saying how the MC thought the random cat was like a mother to him. Also more of a personal thing, but I hate how he doesn't kill something (Good kobold tribe) even though he had no reason not to. Instead, he starts to f*** play with them cause the author needed to force a goody two shoes. Like just keep him solo for god's sake. Stop making him have interactions that make no sense. Rent over. But I'll drop if author doesn't harden MC.

    Great story with high-quality character development and thought process. However, when a story includes gods or similar omnipotent beings, I always feel like the strenght and development of the MC and the world around him gets limited. I prefer it when there is higher races and natural life development in the backstory instead of gods or omnipotent worlds with the ability to create things.

    The book is great. The MC is adorable and brings me joy when i read about his adventures. Can't wait for more to come out. There are some grammer errors and a bit of confusing points from time to time but In the end its worth it. The world building is slowly taking shape, and i like the anticipation and buildup of the little kitten growing up and meeting the wizards and adventurers that will inevitably show up. I like the antaginists pushing him to grow stronger and the character grows from his own efforts. There isnt too much plot armor. One or two parts saving him. The dungen chains grabbing the goblin were never explained and the demon never commented on it so i dunno. Read it enjoy it. The author is great.

    The story itself is quite interesting but the translation quality is absolutely horrible. In fact I'm almost certain that it has been done with a google translate or a similiar tool leaving it almost unreadable.

    After reading this book, my eyes began to bleed from the mistakes I have seen, but the story and the MC heal my eyes and that makes it very easy for me to continue reading.

    This book created a deep seated depressive itch that needs scratching The way the main protagonist is discribed really allowed me to connect with this story. I'm certain that most readers will agree that this book and some of your others really have a powerful empathetic effect on the reader But you have left us uppon a large pricepiece of emotional expectation [img=recommend] I implore you to start writing again I made a rare effort to make a login and write this Evan one chapter on any one book per month ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

    Very interesting novel, continue in the same spirit and everything will be gorgeous, I do not know English and probably write with errors on this, but I would like you to devote more time to this novel, because it is excellent.

    It's one of those books where you have to translate a sentence yourself to make it understandable. The MC has wild personality swings between pussy and badass. Some of his breakdowns annoying. The system is good, and he isn't ridiculously OP which can ruin stories. Just OP enough that he crushes most opposition but has to put thought and strategy into battles to win vs harder enemies. The action is good, would be much better with an editor so it makes more sense, but still better than most authors that blatantly avoid writing fight scenes. Overall I enjoyed the story and want to see the female kitten catch back up with Alex and adventure with him.
