Young Ivy could not rest. Although she had some memories of her past life, she was reincarnated into a RPG-like world at the weakest rank, and worse, the weakest class. As a starless Tamer, even her parents wanted nothing to do with her, and she soon realized that she had to survive on her own. She learns to live off the land and make use of what she can from what others leave behind. But when Ivy tamed Sora, an ordinary slime, everything changed for both of them. There’s something special about this frail little monster and Ivy’s care brings out the best in both!
