Title: The Alchemist Who Survived Now Dreams of a Quiet City Life
Author: Usata Nonohara
Review by: Dani Hoots
After being worked quite literally to death, corporate slave Routa Okami’s dying wish is to be reborn as the well-loved pet of a rich family. When a compassionate goddess actually grants his wish, Routa commits himself to the lazy, carefree, all-you-can-nap lifestyle of a pampered pup-complete with a beautiful owner and all the delicious food he can eat! But as Routa grows…and grows…and grows…he realizes something is terribly wrong. With his enormous body, razor-sharp teeth, and fierce visage, it’s painfully obvious that he was reincarnated not as a dog but as a giant wolf. And not just any wolf-the legendary wolf king Fenrir!
This is a cute story about a wolf who wants to be a pampered house pet… that was once a human man. It sounds crazy, and weird, but it is really fun, full of adventure and mystery, and you are wondering what could possibly happen next. He thinks he is a puppy reborn, but soon finds out he is a scary wolf.
But let’s be honest here, who doesn’t want a pet wolf?
All in all, this story is really fascinating, the world is well built, and the characters all make sense. It is only 170 pages long, so it is a nice short read, perfect for busy lives.
