What's good about this:

The protagonist in this is.... the best protagonist ever. He's epic. He's absurd. He's absurdly epic. He's the paragon of animal lovers. He seems to have no influence from either taboos or natural human tendencies. The first thing he does when he arrives on the standard RPG world in this new (and already overused and worn out) "isekai" Japanese genre, when the princess who summons him asks him to eliminate magical beasts who "infest" their world, is he grabs the princess and body slams her without hesitation. Because he will be hearing NOTHING of any notions of hurting any magical beasts. It cuts to 6 months later, and he's proposing to a stray cat. And yes, I mean a marriage proposal. Not a girl with cat ears and a tail. Not an anthropomorphic furry cat woman with a human figure. Not a talking human-sized cat. A small cat, who isn't capable of understanding him, while he completely assumes the cat understands everything he says as he tries to argue his way into her heart. Notable quotes from chapter 8: "Today I'm going to the path where stray cats usually walk, to lie down and get stepped on by their paws". "He got that nickname because he harassed every new magical beast he encountered by hugging them." If a girl flirts with him, to him, it doesn't matter what she looks like, unless she at least has cat ears and a tail, she's a 0 out of 10.

What's not:

The problem is, 8 chapters in, there doesn't seem to be a plot. It's just this run-on gag, about how ridiculous he is. The author isn't DOING anything with him (yet), this manga has yet to get off the ground. He's just running an unprofitable pet shop (largely because he keeps refusing to sell animals to potential customers) in a fake RPG world and sitting around being ridiculous. He's a great character but that alone isn't enough, you can't just have a great character and have him sit around doing nothing. And even if something happens at this point, I've just lost patience with it. This would be more suitable to be cut down to a series of 4 panel gags and then put in a comic strip section in a weekly newspaper, than to make it into poorly formed serial chapters.
