Review: A man was reincarnated into a sword. During her escape from slavery, a malnourished slave catgirl picked up the sword. It gave a sword called Master to Fran, and it gave a sword entitled Fran to a girl named Fran. It is during their many adventures that they discover the elusive dungeon who teleports them to parallel worlds. Are they able to find their way back home?

Isekai tropes show a powerful beginning where characters are pulled into a new reality and compelled to start over. This makes the story interesting as our leads are unsure of whom to trust. Considering how engaging and fun this series is, I’ll be reading more of it. I need to find more of it. This genre has become increasingly popular in recent years and it’s easy to see why. It offers a unique take on a classic fantasy story. I’m looking forward to seeing what other stories this genre offers.
