My Quiet Blacksmith Life in Another World

Eizo is a middle-aged, overworked software engineer who loves cats. One night after working late, he saves an injured cat from a speeding truck. The cat survives, but Eizo does not… Luckily, that cat turns out to be a god-like being who offers him a second chance in another world! Eizo decides that he wants a slower life, one where he can live off the things he creates with his own hands. So, why not become a blacksmith? He does have one other stipulation: a cat companion for his quiet life. These requests are granted, and Eizo is whisked away to a new world and imbued with blacksmithing knowledge. He soon finds out that his abilities are above average—in fact, his new skills are so overpowered that they’re like cheats. On top of that, his cat companion turns out to be a half-tiger girl! Eizo’s blades soon garner attention, and he realizes that he can turn the tides of battle with his forge and hammer. With so much commotion in store, will Eizo truly be able to enjoy a quiet life?

  • There´s a few cries about “harem” and a long essay about the LN on here. That essay is weirdly off-point.

    The MC is pretty much how i´d imagine a corporate drone in his 30s, unlike practically most MCs in isekai being 15ish (not counting the MCs getting reset to young age). There´s a fair bit of actually interesting dialouge in, but the entire LN is literally slice of life of a isekai blacksmith.

    The MC has an understanding that he does know the world he´s in, but also that he lacks the experience in the world. He acts like that, since he´s an 30-something guy who actually is able to discern people´s reactions and can negotiate/judge character without Isekai MMO skills.

    Its a decent enough read, and having a preamble about “future stuff” is pretty interesting to read and spices things up.
    How his weapons/crafted goods affect the world after he´s passed, in the future, is not a fucking “spoiler”. Its part of the plot to liven up the slice of life.

    Anyway

    TL;DR
    Decent Read. Slice of Life with Isekai Blacksmith.
    No real fanservice.

  • Dropped it right after the prologue, what kind of shiity warrior abandons a fight after confirming that his equipment is a close match with that of his enemy, if the peace was so easily achievable then why they were fighting in the first place?

  • Ok, I’ll drop this series because the translation has become too woke.
    There’s at least 4 altercations to the original dialogues to accommodate the woke Westerns. Why the heck the translator need to alter ‘racial supremacy’ into ‘diversity issues’? Or ‘offenders’ into ‘bigot’? And that’s not even the worst changes.

  • Dropped around vol 2-3.

    Relatively chill and nice to read. Generally pretty good and lovable characters as wel. Interesting enough to say the least.

    But…

    One, Harem tag is wrong, that or will be more pronounced and set up in later volumes. Hopefully not so abruptly nor weirdly, despite dropping the series, I do hope so that it doesn’t just end up being poor harem with little to no actual thought behind it. For the characters and for the readers alike, as well as of those who actually can truly enjoy and care about the series or so.

    Two, the Mc is insufferable. He’s generally good but also bad. Not a scum or anything like that as far from what I can recall and can tell anyways with my experience with the read. Props on making the Mc be responsible and nice, or so I’d like to say. Well, relatively speaking, he is but also not. For those who think the Mc is being serious or so, better not. He’d have moments like think about what stuff to make and for whom but at the end of the day, he’s really just churning out whatever to whoever he likes and such. The more complicated details are actually still just thrown out pretty much entirely or at the very least most of them are.

    Minor spoiler but for example, he makes it so that anyone who can come to he’s abode, he’ll potentially serve, though that’s honestly with the benefit of doubt. If I could recall it right, pretty certain what he actually said and implied was that, he’ll serve pretty much anyone that can come to his personal abode. Trusting a merchant that he really barely knows anything about except seemingly being nice (which they were as far as what was shown and implied anyways from the get go) that they’d send worthy people his way. Though given how the Mc actually is, pretty certain he didn’t even think that far, only as far as serving pretty much anyone that can come to his place. Though if they obviously a bad character, the Mc most likely wouldn’t serve them or hopefully not anyways but yeah. There could be and are sly people and such.

    Many more half baked ideas and concern are and will plague the Mc. Better just throw common sense out from the get go ad not be fooled by how the novel and Mc seems to be chill and reasonable. Well, chill still generally speaking, but the kind of chill with pretty much reckless abandon or so.

    The novel seems to have tried to have been a bit more serious and reasonable but all in all, all or most reason are pretty much discarded and are nothing at the end of the way. With the Mc pretty much seemingly contemplating a bit then immediate pretty much just shrugs and goes think and do whatever just a sec later, like going 360 and saying “My swords can kill and do harm…Anyways, you want a sword? Sure friend! Would love to give you quality swords. You do whatever you want with them, not my responsibility nor any concern, hahaha” The Mc pretty much goes like that most if not all of the time.

    Though again, the novel is still a relatively nice or at the very least okay read, especially if you can just turn your brain off or so, though personally I’d say no to that, especially if you’re gonna argue about how it’s only good but denying or averting your eyes or so from the blatantly wishy washy and irresponsible shortcoming s and flaws of it such as with the Mc. You can still enjoy it but if you think that’s actually reading and you making a fair point and argument when you can’t even see or admit its bad points, even when it is so obvious, better just keep singing praises just in your head or so. With all due to respect and seriousness it is still a nice read, and we of course have our own preferences and such, but do not think that only your opinion counts and matters, that its right and anyone or anything that opposes it is wrong and bad. Especially in actually logical arguments and constructive criticism and such. Just singing praises is far from actually making an actual argument or point.

    In any case, the series is interesting and enjoyable enough still but also generally generic as well. Generic Isekai with an op Mc that’s also on a dense side like usual if I can recall it right and with supposed harem too. Just doing whatever they want with little to no actual thought to the would be or should be possible consequences and such. A nice little read to pass the time with your brain turned off to say the least.

    • Almost forgot.

      Mc has had a lot of time to actually learn and such, even just a bit more. But as far as I can recall from my reads, he has little to no actual growth to speak of. Like even learning a bit more about the local area or so aside from what he just so happens to hear and pick up upon or so but otherwise, doesn’t go out of his way to actually learn more and such. Even then, normally or should ge anyways, more common sense would be present. Mc really shows little to nothing when it comes to that department, pretty much just like any other op isekai protagonists that are dense too and such. If anything, the antagonists and others show more actual concerns and thoughts despite them getting possibly to really stupid extents and such.

      Again, pretty much half baked in general. Relatively nice still but yeah.

      Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong and such, but with all due respect and seriousness, make sure to have an actual point or so and not just singing praises and cause you like it but don’t like my comments or so.

  • This dont even count as Harem the genre is wrong or is going to be 5 or 6 books in the future.
    My real problem is he is at this point a bladesmith, a repetitive one and i dont see the author changing that, in book one that was fine and dandy, relaxing even, at book 2 is tiresome

  • Is this a harem with dense af protganist?

  • DO NOT read the prologue. It pretty much gives away the ending. After reading it my motivation to keep reading dropped by 98% so I didn’t (keep reading).

  • Does a slice of life story about a blacksmith really need to be a harem?

  • man can we get a fucking isekai thats not a harem? im so sick and tired of it by now

  • AAAHHHHH FINALLY it’s here, Kajiya 👀 Tqsm JLN~ 🙏
