Doomed to be Cannon Fodder

She’s somehow ended up transmigrating into the book as the supporting female lead, who was beaten to death! Deeply in love with the male lead, she’s fated to be beaten to a bloody pulp before even holding hands with him?!

First things first, she needs to survive and latch onto the big thigh of a patron. But the supporting male lead is a true gentleman and feels nothing for her stunning, alluring body. That’s alright! She’ll latch onto the old madame or the male lead then!

But why does the supporting male lead look at her with increasingly odd eyes? And what of that Wulin Alliance Head with the personality disorder? You’re just a random bystander, what are you getting involved for??

Finally, the male lead could bear it no longer and dragged her back to the Prince Li Manor…

Do not read this. Wait until it has reached like 100 chapters if you must. Else you will suffer just like the rest of us, impatiently refreshing the site, yearning for just another fix of the clueless​ MC and her tsundere ML. You will die from fluffyness. You will gladly die from the fluff. Reading this puts you in the palm if those cliff-loving sadist known as translators and by the time you realize this, you don't even care anymore. Save yourself, it's too late for the rest of us.

The mc is not a doctor, spy, or assassin, and she's definitely not a genius. She's a landscape gardener who reads a lot of web novels. This is a playful homage to all the transmigration novels and is not to be taken too seriously.

Rather than dying by betrayal, explosion or truck, she ends up living in the world of the novel she's currently reading after injuring her hand on a cactus' spikes. She knows that the rather minor character she's become dies gruesomely and rather than revenge or world domination, she's... more>> just trying to stay alive and out of the male lead's way.

She's managed to find a cactus, maybe she can work out how to return? But the fact that she can hear it talk, as well as some of her other activities, leads to rumours of her insanity.

I really want to see where the author goes with this. Was the cactus hallucinogenic and she's just dreaming? Have the souls of the two women swapped due to a rift in time and space? Is the author going to throw in some more tropes?

Whatever, so far it's fun. <<less

The title explains how comical the situation is! But the story is more calm. The situation is making our "lead non-lead female"'s action very cute! This novel is just wonderful!

Very different of the other transmigration's stories: the female protagonist is sent in the novel that she is reading as the beautiful and domed to be cannon fodder female antagonist!

Her only hope to survive : playing low key (failing at it, completely), seducing the support male character (inadvertently seducing her husband by trying not to) and avoid the female lead (still... more>> waiting for her arrival).

Just READ IT! <<less

I've been reading a lot of Chinese Romance Novels but this is the first time I'm commenting here. I've read a lot of great ones and not so good ones but this story is the former; it actually got me hooked and I read all chapters that have been posted in one seating!

The story is light, upbeat and quite comedic due to the lead "non-lead female's" thinking and actions. I am very happy she's not an OP female, aside from being stunningly beautiful. Some elements of supernatural as well due... more>> to a talking plant (hope this is not a spoiler). She's very real in terms of her skills from the modern world and just wants to continue to stay alive by having the male supporting lead fall for her in the event that the prince male lead and the fiancee "female lead" gets together.

So far I'm really liking the story because her personal servant is very good and loyal to her. The old Madam looks to be warming up slowly and favoring her compared to the 3 other concubines. It seems even though there are currently 4 concubines and 1 fiancee in story, I'm thinking it won't be a harem since the male lead seems he will fall in love only with our lead "non-lead female". ✌️😊

Thumbs up to a great translation and also each chapters uploaded are quite long compared to other novels from Volare Novels so I'm super satisfied. Thank you and keep up the great work    translation team at Volare. ❤️🤗 <<less

Refreshing! Most of these reincarnator novels are full of people calling the MC trash and bullying and revenge plots and the such- in this one, the MC just wants to avoid all that stuff. A calm, adorable read!

Not the type of story for someone whose looking for serious read, but if you don't mind hilarious/weird stuff done by a modern girl who have no idea how things work in ancient china time, then this will make you snicker all the way~

If you like My Disciple Died Yet Again and Meow Meow Meow,

then you will love this!

This is such a refreshing story! It has that mellow pace that keeps the story flowing seamlessly. I like how the chapters are not too short nor too long. It was perfect in a way you get something out of it everytime. Chapter release speed is also A-MA-ZIiiiiING.

... more>> It contains unexpected twists to a plot told too many times before and this makes runaway brides observed by a side female character plot so unique.

Main character is quite pragmatic. More on the laying low, calculated clumsiness type with ulterior motives but even the readers cant tell at this point if she is hiding something or she is a SAINT.

Cant wait to read more! <<less

One of the most original transmigration Chinese novels I've ever read. In fact, it's probably an "original" transmigration c-novel because it reads more like a Japanese transmigration novel. So, it's perfect for people that hate being bogged down by the 250 chapter-long cultivation phase that always seems to occur in ancient c-novels.

The author did a great job with both the plot and characters. The plot moves at a good pace and character development occurs with reason so no sudden OOC-ness. I don't remember any major plotholes but there were two... more>> small things that bothered me a little (but that's just my own personal preference speaking so feel free to disregard me if it doesn't bother you).


The sudden inclusion of a wish-fulfilling, blood-sucking plant and a second transported villain was kind of weird. The plant had a deus ex machina feel to it but I'm overlooking it because the author did a great job blending different cliches together to make a interesting original blend. I only wish the author had explored the whole transportation thing more seriously since it would've been nice to let the heroine return home and clean up her situation back there. It's a bit sad that her body might be in an indefinite coma and her family/friends will never find out that she's fine in the other world. It was strange how her heart seems to stop beating in ancient times but not in modern times. That or time passes differently.




This novel is a happy ending. There really isn't much of a reverse harem since almost all of the secondary characters get their own adorable husband/wife. The author wrote side stories for two of the side couples (they're adorable) and it's pretty definite that everyone is in love/monogamous. Finally, a word to readers that might be scared of boarding the wrong ship: don't worry, the author literally builds the ship around you so, by the time the ship sails, you're already on the official ship.

From the chapters that I've read, this novel is really good. The plot is not too fast nor to slow. It handles it cliches well and the characters are likeable. The heroine is also sensible and funny, I wonder if she's Bakarina 2.0.

The translation's quality is also superb. I can recommend it to everyone, even the ones who does not like transmigration stories.

Let me start on why I decided to start reading this novel. I look at the other recommendation, which is My Disciple Died Yet Again. If you read that novel, then you know how funny, unpredictable and highly addicting it is. With my blind faith in MDDYA, I start reading this novel

And it's true! First of all, this is a collaboration of a group of translators, so I'm quite confident on the speed of the translations. Second, I love unorthodox heroine. If you love Reika sama from Kenkyo Kenjitsu, you'll... more>> like the MC. Up until ch 26 there's no firm ship to sail, so everyone is free to ship the MC with either the Male Character or the Supporting Male Character <<less

A funny read. If you're tired of typical 'arrogant assassin/doctor transmigrates into a peerless cheat' stories, give this one a try. Like My Disciple Died Yet Again, this is transmigration of a fairly ordinary woman into unusual circumstances.

The cast of characters she interacts with is kept fairly small, with sufficient descriptions to tell you who others (such as servants, friends of characters, etc.) are. The story is light and has plenty of misunderstandings. It's far from a serious read, but not a waste of time.

As a side note, the synopsis... more>> seems to have some things mixed up, unless it's describing much farther into the plot. <<less

This story is soo interesting interms of its theme and plot. Making me laugh all the time. It's not those usual reborn thing but instead focused on the side character. The male lead is endearing and cute while female supporting character aka main character is crazy with all those her antics. Hahaha...

Sorry for the short review, I'm quite lazy and didn't know how to write proper review

So Funny! So Entertaining! The female character is quite naive and sometimes it's hard to tell if she's smart or dumb.

I feel bad for the supporting male and I can't wait for the Wulin Alliance Head to appear!
