The Tanaka Family Reincarnates - Chapter 1
Chapter 1: Happy Family Get-Together
Tanaka family is a family that loves cats.

It was the Southern Sea great earthquake that had long been a concern.
The eldest daughter’s room on the first floor of the condominium was crushed that day by the earthquake and the entire family died.
